Again, side benefits from looking for cows – same Spring Hill Community little ghost town.  I thought these simple photos of a window and a door would make nice conversions – the weathered wood just appeals in black and white.


With both of these I just used the conversion from PSE and then tweaked the contrast a bit.


These simple images have a certain beauty to them – the lines, the implied life of the building, the age and wisdom of the building.  They just appeal to me.


I might have these printed and framed for my bathroom.  I’ll give that some thought.

  1. The photos look beautiful in black and white! I love old buildings like this.

    really like the second shot…there is just something about old wood that appeals to me. Add a door and that sense of leading into mystery…perfect!

    I’m torn; the black and white are nice but I still love the warmth of the old weathered wood in the original colour ones.

  4. I actually like the vintage tone of the original, but the conversions definitely add a touch of art.

    FYI – I’ve I just wanted to pass along to you that I’ve tagged you in a game of Blog Tag. I’m always hesitant to play along with these games, but did, so here I am including others … as in you! I will not be offended if you pass on this golden opportunity to spend more time at the computer.

    Definitely print worthy!! LOVE both versions of these shots… just pinned them to my “Gates & Windows & Doors” board on Pinterest 🙂
