This is Abbey.  A toy poodle.  She belongs to my parents and is coming up to 13 years old in our years.  She has started to go blind again, despite having cataract surgery.  I think her companionship is really what keeps my parents going.

Sonel’s Corner Photo-Editing Challenge: Vintage

Good morning from a sunny Hastings.

I love this challenge by Sonel’s Corner Photo-Editing Challenge.  This week it is vintage objects as well as vintage editing.

Last night I discovered Snapseed, a free app for IPhones.  I had taken these photos on Monday with my IPhone 5S while I was at the memorial service for the 1931 earthquake on Monday.  This steam engine was used in the aftermath of the quake to clear rubble and help where needed.  So last night I spent some time playing around with this app.  I love the affects, especially the grunge affect.  What I liked about this affect is that the focus was on the central image, and just faded out the modern background.

I though that this quote was appropriate for this challenge.  I love the vintage affect on these flowers.

There are so many great posts for this challenge so check them out.
