Matt's 365

Post by Matt Quinn »

As if I don't have enough challenge in my life; I'll take this plunge and see how far I'll get. At least I will know where I have been.

Matt's 365-1: Brewster Mill

I pass this mill every day going or coming to and from errands while we are at Cape Cod. It's a granary mill where the original resident brought their corn for grinding. The wheel was/is powered by Paines Creek which runs on the right. The mill wheel is visible on the lower right of the building. A few days a year, the Conservation Committee opens the sluice and grinds corn for sale. Awful stuff; critters galore in it. But it's a good cause. I'll look up more info on the structure. Matt

Matt, a lovely, peaceful setting. The composition is spot on, but I am curious to see more. Not necessarily in this photo, but just in general. I do believe this one may have been an attractive scene in color as well, but B&W is most likely the way I would have gone too. A good start for 365. However, I find 52 to be a challenge for me, so kudos to you for taking on more than I could chew.

Thanks Linda. That's not ours. It's on Rte 6A, described as one of the most beautiful highways in the US and also goes by the name, The King's Highway. When we go out on errands, we take it if we can. Lots of history. Matt
Snowing outside like a banshee, whatever a banshee snows like. So I played with yesterday's image in Topaz Impressions to make it more Kincaid/Fairytale-ish. I think, on seeing it on pM, that it could do with a bit more brightening. Thoughts? Matt

The get-well flowers my wife received have begun to die. My wife, on the other hand, has made great progress on her healing. The flowers worked.

Matt's 365-6: (Brewster) Grist Mill

Here it is again, with the wheel the in good repair. The mill served the community 1663-1873 and then ceased operation. It was rebuilt as a tourist attraction in the late 19th Century. The wind and cold were butt-biting, so I didn't venture far or stay long. Several others did the same.

"An Imperfect Lilly" ...Delicate and beautifully done! Matt, I have a big request: when you post a new photo to any of your ongoing threads, please just scroll below the "quick reply" box and click on the button "full editor and preview." Do NOT use the quote reply function. You are quoting quotes of quotes of quotes and making it really hard to see new comments. If you keep doing that, by May you'll have two full pages of old, irrelevant "quotes" for each photo :| Many thanks!

I dont know what it is or how you did it but it's pretty cool, and especially in monochrome.

Linda, Many, many thanks. I hated the clutter but didn't know how to avoid it. Never hesitate to suggest ways for me to avoid these kinds of messes. I will follow it, I hope, in the next post; if I get it wrong, let me know, please. Thanks. Matt
