Black and White for Photo Art Friday

garden bandw with damask frame

This photo was taken in the vegetable garden.  The tools had been left there after a day of getting the plants in the ground.   It just looked like a cute vignette.   I used the gradient map adjustment to make the photo black and white.   I added two layers of the texture from Pixel Dust called “nitty gritty”.   The frame came from Isobelle LaFrance.

 

I am joining Bonnie for Photo Art Friday.   Have a wonderful weekend.

Such a delightful rendition of this Garden Vignette. I love the "vintage" feel you gave it.

I am not sure why, but the minute I saw this, I was reminded of my grandfather's garden. He would spend hour after hour tending it in the summer. This is really beautiful. Thank you for the memory Val!
Have a wonderful weekend!
