An Old Place....

This building sits in back of my daughter's and son-in-law's house.     I love old places like this - I bet they have wonderful stories to tell!

I normally use MCP Actions texture application (its free) and I like it a lot.  However,Kim Klassen is offering a free Texture in 10 course and I highly recommend it!!   I learned a lot and I really enjoy using her textures.   Also, be sure to sign up for her weekly texture freebies.

Happy Thursday!  I hope my blogging buddies in the midwest and up north are starting to thaw out some.

  5. Oh ilove those old houses, we have many in our area, I always if those walls could only talk, the tales they would tell. The love they have seen, the hurt in the home, so many memories for those old homesteads.
    Hugs my friend, Barbara

  6. Great shot, I signed up for Kims texture class. I hope I can understand it. I already downloaded some free textures, but have no idea how to apply them.

  15. Um, nope, no thawing out here! That won't come for another two months! Ugh.

    I love this capture. When I see places like that, I too always wonder about the stories behind it, the people who lived there, and what it was like back when it was inhabited. Thanks for sharing!

  16. There is an old house that was on the brink of collapse that I pass on the way to take Sam to school, and I kept thinking I needed to come back sometime and get some shots of it... then, the other day we passed, and it had fully caved in. So wish I'd gotten that photo.
