steps vintage

Today’s picture is the steps down to the canal. That canal crosses Bull Lane in Moxley, local people might want to know that! I changed the photo with the ‘vintage’ option on Fotosketcher.

Neodigital Art - A simple bridge can make an interesting picture

My first picture today was taken locally. You don’t normally have to travel far unless you live in the middle of a desert. This was just a bridge over a railway and I added some contrast and cropped the original picture. I think the blue railing make the picture look more interesting. (more…)
