fade & burn {66/365}

I thought I’d try something a little different…


I drove past this old … (whatever it is) today and remembered exploring the place quite a few summers ago.  I love doing that – finding an old falling down place and rummaging around.

It can be dangerous though, and on that day, I remember walking along the crumbling wall of the barn that’s back there a little further beyond the trees.  I slipped, and would’ve plunged about two stories down if I wouldn’t have thrown myself in the opposite direction.

Fun times.

Today though, this is as close as I could get.  I’m not a huge fan of knee-high snow.

Anyways, there’s three textures on here, after desaturating and warming it up a bit.  One of the textures is an old tin photo plate.   Cool.

This is the original, which wasn’t great to begin with, which is why I didn’t feel bad destroying it further.  But I just love the crumbling mess of the place.

original from day 66

    I have elements and can’t seem to get textures added to it. I need to quit teaching and get a job that pays money so I can afford Photoshop. LOL

    I love this picture.

    Very nice! I love old buildings, and the texture just adds to it!
