    Another Countryside Barn #WW, #BoTB, & #Hodgepode Q&A

    Welcome Kittens & Dawgs! This post is gonna be jammed pack since three memes collide this time but hockey smoke, can you believe it’s a brand new month so soon? Not me! The year is goin’ up in a puff of smoke! For the last several weeks I’ve shared photographs of barns. This will conclude my series with another countryside barn. I snapped this along a rural stretch of road in Lafollette, Tennessee north of Knoxville on a Sunday afternoon drive. In keeping with my series I used the original to create new photo-artwork using the following apps.   The later two images I really like because it captures the…

    A Countryside Barn #WW

    Welcome Kittens & Dawgs! DH and I stayed close to our area since his eye surgery in March but the good thing living in a place like east Tennessee there is always something interesting to see for the first time or the first time in a long time. One thing we enjoyed doing was driving along country roads which is as close as a few minutes away. Down one of the many twisty rural drives at a fork in the road sat this barn in a rural community near Lafollette Tennessee. I loved that I could see a rolled hay in the loft. Do you see it? Here’s my photo-art…

    Cades Cove Barn #WW

    Welcome Kittens & Dawgs! This old barn is in the Cades Cove area of the Great Smoky Mountains.  If you look through the first barn you’ll see another barn behind and a buggy. I shared a close up of this shot in Forgot Past several years ago if you’d care to take a peek. Meanwhile, I used the above image to create more magic through these photo-artworks.         This week, Joyce is taking a fall break from Wednesday Hodgepodge.      I’m not sure why I’m drawn to  barns but I love the things of the past and how it makes me feel. Do I long to…

    A Different View of Grandpa Kennedy’s Barn #WW

    Welcome Kittens & Dawgs, last week I shared Grandpa Kennedy’s Barn with you and since that’s sort fresh in your memory then I thought we’d take another peek from a different view. I took this photo the same weekend visit, as the first view I posted last Wednesday. The next three photo-art projects I used the same apps as in my previous post. First image creation is a product of Distressed FX with these options “Wren”, “Patina”, and the bird overlay “Soulmates”. The below photo-art creation is a Brushstroke production using “Washed W2” and Paper sytle “Vintage”. I don’t believe I made any other adjustments. What I like about this…

    Grandpa Kennedy’s Barn #WW

        Good-morning, Kittens & Dawgs! Yesterday I learned of more sad mews. The 66-year old rock n’ roller, Tom Petty suffered cardiac arrest and passed away late Monday afternoon in Santa Monica, California. This morning’s mewsic dedication is a tribute to his memory. My prayers are with the Petty family, friends, and fans.   A new month is here, can you believe it? I’m ready for all things associated with autumn, aren’t you?  Last month, I began sharing a series on barns and I’m continuing through this month. My father-in-law’s dad built this barn. The below photo, DH’s oldest brother shared with us many years ago. The cool thing…

    Weathered Barn Near Boone NC #WW

    Somewhere along the North Carolina mountain countryside is this quaint, weathered barn. judging by its condition I don’t believe it’s been used for anything in years. I snapped the original (above) in August 2011 and first shared it with y’all in 2013. I knew when I began my barn photo-art series that I wanted to dabble with this image more. After looking at my archives I found I had more than one version taken at the same location but after shortly studying them I decided I like the way the wild flowers framed the lower bottom edge better in this one. Using my iPad Distressed FX app adding color and…
