I'm going nuts! I haven't been able to get out to do any photography, because the weather hasn't been the best around here! I am finding new ways to manipulate images. The manipulations have been done in PSP 8. If Ivan hits this weekend, that will be another weekend with no photo ops...Oh, don't think I didn't want to go out and do some weather shots! It's just not safe for my camera...LOL!

I like your manipulations with this one Paula. I'm sorry for all the lousy weather you guys have been getting and another one on the way! Stay safe and keep that camera dry!

Thank you, everyone! I really need a weekend for shooting!

Now, it looks like Ivan is headed our way. Is there no end to this madness??? This poor State looks like a war zone! So many homes have been trashed. I'm ready for some sanity!
I'm just so thankful I haven't suffered any damage. There are so many people homeless right now. The funds are running out and another storm is coming our way.

I hope to have something different to upload here in the next few days....

Paula, wonderful image. I love old buildings, farm equipment, fences - all that stuff. I love the sepia, the grainy effect. Just beautiful.
