I love using my own digital photos for my digital sketchbook image creations. I really like being able to digitally transform one image into something new. Be sure to click the image to view it full size or else you might miss the details! Now looking at this makes me want to go back to the lake!

I’m entering this photo in a brand new photo challenge on a fellow blogger’s new blog, Twisted Fate Photography.
I have previously posted this photograph under my Photography link as Old Metal Barn. But the challenged allows for either a new or archived photo for her “Buildings” challenge, so I decided I would use this one as my entry.
This is a black and white film photo. I took the photo (of course), and I also developed the film as well as the print itself, and then I hand tinted it. It’s one of my favorite photos of buildings that I’ve taken. It’s nice to be able to enter it into a blog challenge too.
On a recent outing to Grand Rapids, Ohio, the Hubs and I did a little exploring on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Here are a couple of photos I took of a train trestle that runs over the Maumee River in Grand Rapids. (Click to Enlarge)
We’ve visited Grand Rapids many times since we’ve lived in Northwest Ohio. It’s a great little historic town, with lots of little shoppes and things to do and see. Worth a trip if you’re ever in this part of the world.
Have a great weekend!
This is a traditional black and white film photograph of an old, abandoned building. This is another where I developed the film and printed the photograph myself. I love the texture within this photo, created by the vines that have grown up over it and are now all dried up.
After living in Ohio for over 20 years, within an hour or so drive, the Hubs and I finally managed to take a trip to Port Clinton and Put in Bay. We had a really good time, as there is lots to do and see. It was a nice ride on the Jet Express from Port Clinton to Put in Bay. Once on the island, we traveled around by golf cart (no cars allowed!) that the Hubs enjoyed driving far too much. We also took the tour of the Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial, which is a 352 foot Doric column, rising up over Lake Erie. It was built to honor those who fought in the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812; and to celebrate the lasting peace between the US, Britain, and Canada. It opened in 1915, and is situated 5 miles from the longest undefended border in the world.
Now that you’ve had your fill of Ohio history and trivia…this photo was taken near the top of the tower; well, it’s the very top level that any humans can get to. The architectural detail at the top is just beautiful. Yeah, I took photos out over the water too, but this one is actually my favorite.
This is a photograph of yet another old building in Ohio, this time some sort of metal barn structure. Again, this is made from film that I developed and printed myself, old school style. I love the texture in this photograph.
