Derelict Doorway for Photo Art Friday

derelict diptch


An old abandoned house I saw one day as I was travelling the backroads to somewhere.  It was in the middle of a field so I did not get out of the car to get closer.  I did edit it as good as I could and then chose filter, find edges and gave it a blending mode of linear burn.  I then added a texture from Kim Klassen Café called little things and a layer of pixeldustphotoart texture mauve threads. 

I am joining Bonnie for Photo Art Friday at Pixel Dust Photo Art.   I am away for the weekend so I will be late with my comments.   Have a great weekend.

Have a nice weekend... Great photo editing. Mauve threads is one of my favourite textures, I think it does lovely things to photos!

Love the photo and the editing. Abandoned houses always attract me, if they could only tell their stories.

Wonderful edit. I love the colors in your edit. To bad you weren't able to get in closer as it looks like such an interesting building.

Nice edit Valerie. Both images are lovely and it's interesting that you just happened to find this subject in your travels. That just confirms that we need to keep are cameras with us where ever we go!
