Good Fences, Good Art

Howdy! - Before I get started with today's post I'd like to thank everyone who sent get well wishes.  I've been battling a case of Bronchitis this past week along with taking care of my mom who also had Bronchitis and nursing my Granddaughter, Coleen who ended up with the flu and was home all last week.  Let's just say it was not an easy week but things are slowly returning to normal.  It meant a lot to know you cared.

So now let's join in on some fun with Good Fences and a new photo art Meme called, Photo Art Thursday.  I've combined the two of them today with my photos.

GOOD FENCES is hosted by Theresa from (The Run-a-round Ranch Report)   and PHOTO ART THURSDAY is hosted by Cherie from (The Froelich Diaries).

First up I spotted this stone wall/fence and trees while out driving one day.  I just liked the way the trees looked that day and decided to snap a photo.  The next 2 shots show the same scene jazzed up a little and then turned into some photo art.

Click to enlarge photos.




I played around using 3 different photo editing sites to come up with the final photo. Pic Monkey, Pixlr-o-Matic and BeFunky were all used here to create the final scene.

Now one more before we go because it's just so much fun to create photo art .

Another Fence scene that I spotted on this same drive around town.


I found the stump of the tree inside the fence to be interesting and of course the weathered look of the fence as well.  So here is the "artistic" version of this scene.



I hope you've enjoyed seeing the fences in real life and in photo art.  Do stop by both Theresa and Cherie's blogs to check out the other participants.
Cherie's is a new meme so be sure to spread the word so more people will join in on the fun.

  17. I love the trees and the stone wall but I think the second fence needs a lick of paint.

    ReplyDelete
  18. love the second shot of the trees but not keen on the third version but it is great to experiment. In the one of the stump behind the fence think I'd have liked to have tried to keep a bit more of the texture in the fence.

  46. Glad to hear you are all on the mend and feel up to blogging again. Love the Tolkein quote! I was going to use it myself but decided to wait when I saw you had used it. I like the way you placed the quote on the fence rails.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love the stone wall. It looks great unaltered and the second image is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ida, I'm so glad you are on the mend, and things are improving.

    There is a lot of know-how in making dry stone walls. This one is very well made, and looks great in front of the trees. Nicely spotted!:) Fun photo art images too.
    Best Regards.

    ReplyDelete

    Great fences....one does need a little paint job! It's just a tad bit weathered!! I'm your newest follower!
    Blessings..

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hope everyone in the family is feeling better. You seem to have had fun with these two fence images. My favourite is the watercolor with the tree stump. I really like that watercolor effect.

    ReplyDelete
  66. A great Tolkien quote!!

    I really like the lighting in that second shot of the rock fence. It really makes the setting pop.

    and the stump adds great visual interest behind the fence. I like it when I find "art" in nature. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hello Ida!:) I came over again to thank you for being my latest follower.:) I say again, because I notice the comment I made yesterday on your post didn't go through.

    I love dry stone walls, and have watched a few being made over the years. The one in your photo is relly well done, and makes a good fence in front of the trees. Very nice photos, and editing. I'm glad you are on the mend, and things are better.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Wow, your jazzed up images are real stunners!! I love the quote by Tolkien.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I would so love to have a stone fence! The picture makes me think of warmer days also.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Ida I just love your fences and especially love your processing on the last one where you added the quote. So sorry to hear that you have had bronchitis. That is just no fun, and the last time I got it I ended up in the hospital. Take it easy and get well in a hurry. Hope your weekend will be a good one!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh, my goodness. I love that rock wall...I like the original just fine, LOVE the second shot of it...and like the third, too.

    Sorry you have been sick. Our grandaughter was sick last week..I don't know if it was 'the' flu, but it was some kind of stomach bug. I had the flu over the holidays, and ended up in the emergency room Christmas day/evening.

    And husband was sick at the same time...so having sympathy pains for what you have just been through.
