Old Style with a New Edge

Sometimes what I see with my "mind's eye" is not always the same as the raw data that the camera captures. It is fun to look at something old, rusty, and broken and see new beauty in a different way. These photos have been altered to change the focus and target specific elements that I saw when I shot the original photo. Here is what I saw.


  1. Julie, these are fabulous. I agree with raw data not always equaling what your mind's eye sees - well said!

  2. Thanks MKC! As a photographer sometimes it's hard to translate that magic moment onto an image. But we always try!

  3. Yes, very well said, Julie. Love your composition on
    the wagon wheels.

  4. Julie, I always enjoy your photography, so I have given your blog an award....go to my blog to check out all the hype!

  5. That's really interesting. The first thing that sprung to mind when I looked at the second image was a chainsaw. Now after saying this, I must confess to only just having watched a horror movie last night. So now I'm seeing chainsaws everywhere. Yikes! I do love all the images. Very cool!

  6. Thank you for your comments! And thank you Gypsy for the Kreativ Blogger Award!

  7. Gorgeous, Julie - very well-said!

  8. You were also awarded the Kreativ by me - unfortunately my system wasn't working yesterday.
    So you have two, but only have to do it once!

    Have a great Sunday!
