Time for the latest Brenda Photo Challenge! The subject is Old, picked by the current challenge hostess, Donna of Made in Heaven. While we were staying at a spectacular guest ranch resort during our western vacation last month, I took a few snaps of things that definitely fit the bill! Once I picked these images out, I chuckled that they all happen to be in brown and grey color tones. How fitting for the theme!
“Kick Up Your Heels” Old – This pair of worn boots was a cute prop outside one of the guest cabins. Because the lighting was flat, the original picture didn’t have much depth or character. So, I jazzed it up with the “poster edges” filter on Photoshop. The camera settings were f/5 and 1/60 second.
“If Only These Walls Could Talk” Old - It is a treasure to taking pictures with early morning light. The sun was just rising over the adjacent hillsides, and the golden sidelight captured the rustic texture of this old log cabin. The original ranch settlers built it in 1903. The picture was taken at f/6.3 and 1/160 second.
“Way Past the Expiration Date” Old – This remnant of a bovine fellow was hanging outside the ranch’s main building. He wasn’t nearly as fun to pet as the horses! The camera settings were f/4.2 and 1/60 second.
