Good Fences#47 and Photo Art

Welcome!  -  Gosh it seems like I just can't seem to get caught up visiting all your blogs and I apologize for not commenting as often as I'd like to.  Just know I so enjoy all your blogs and the fact you stop by mine as well.

So let's joining in on the fun of GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa from, The Run-a round Ranch Report.)

Last week we had a bout an hour where the sun actually came out and I took advantage by taking a little walk around the neighborhood.  I knew there was this neat looking wall/fence that I wanted to photograph so that's where I went.

This is what it is made out of.  Concrete Blocks.


Here is part of it.


Looking down the full length of the fence towards the street.  I too this shot from the alley.  YOu can see how muddy it was due to all the rain we'd had.


The best part of the fence though was what I found at the end where it connected with a little storage shed.........





I thought the gate was super cool looking.  What do you think?

So now for some digital art.

Joining in with NAF this week where the optional theme was birds.

I chose to use a photo of Pelican's taken last summer.  I edited the photo using the Posterize feature on PicMonkey

 Original below:
I cropped the photo first and then used the Posterize feature and also bit of color adjustment, added sunlight and the Urbane look from PicMonkey to get the finished piece.  I rather like how it turned out.



Also joining Cherie from The Froelich Diaries again for her new photo art meme (Photo Art Thursday).  Please stop by her blog and view her work.  It's pretty awesome.  I'm not really versed in using layers and such so my piece is nothing that fancy but it was fun.

This is the original photo.  Coleen and I spotted this bottle tree and a few other interesting things in a yard recently so I stopped and snapped some photos.





Next up I played around with the photo and got this version:


Finally after playing some more I ended up with this:

  It totally changed the look of the original for sure.  I hope you have enjoyed the Good Fences and the Photo Art.  Have a great day.

  6. That fence is made to last! Nice combo of texture with the wooden gate.
    I have bottles saved for a bottle tree. Been meaning to do one for about three years now. :)
    I really like your first art photo of the tree - the ducks too. It's fun to play around with photos I think.

  11. Another nice looking concrete fence :)
    And I like what you did to the other pictures, the new pelicans are almost prettier than the old ones :))
    The final result of the bottle tree is really great, you can sell that as art :D
    (but perhaps with a more modern frame around it...)
    Have a fine day Ida!

  49. I am always amazing at the fences you find. I need to pay more attention and see if there are as many interesting fences in my area, and I just overlook them? Or maybe folks just don't have them around here. Either way, I always enjoy seeing what you find.
