Playing with Old Buildings

 
As a kid, one of the things I loved was to poke around old buildings. Usually ones that were totally unsafe, but, hey... that was half the fun.

My playing today was only of the digital kind. I took pix of two buildings, made them black and white, and then tried three effects on each to make sets that were something alike. It was interesting that the same strength of effect on the two different buildings didn't result in matching looks. I fooled with that a bit to try to make them more alike. Just enjoy.

Don't forget to vote for your favorite humorous post of 2012.

They are a shed and an old school. The pencil effect doesn't look good at this size, so you really need to click on them to see a larger size.

I love old buildings too. My favorites are churches and barns.

I lost a ton of photos on my old hard drive that went out. I hope to be able to save them.

You did a great job on these photos. I love to see different effects applied!!

Have a good one and your poll is hilarious!! I love it!!:-)

I used to love exploring old building as a kid. I'd probably get arrested if I tried now :-( I wish I'd taken a few photos...

It's fun to "play" with photos, isn't it? I like what you did with yours. Makes feel like I've crawled into a time machine and gone back to a different era.

I find old buildings very interesting. I also enjoy seeing how you edited the pictures. I love the texture in the last two.
