Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Older than 50 years

DSCF0078 1.1

My contribution to Cee’s Photography challenge this week.  This silver tea set was given to my parents when they got married in 1960.  So it only just scrapes in.  I wanted to give the photo a vintage look.  First I used ColourStrokes and it’s dreamy filter for the black and white edit.  Then to GIMP for the cartoon filter before using FX Photostudio Pro for a vignette and frame.

Thanks for visiting and here are a couple of other blogs to check out.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Large Objects.

DSCF8531DSCF8528

Good morning from a sunny Hastings.

When I saw what this weeks challenge by Cee’s Photography was, I was stumped.  I couldn’t think of any photos of large objects.  But then I saw these photos.  The moon.  Nothing could be larger than it.

Thanks for visiting and here are some other great blogs in this challenge.
