Two-fer Tuesday



Cannonsburg Window & Wagon Wheel



Its a Tuesday two-fer with a Texture Tuesday offering for Kim Klassen's weekly challenge and a photo for the Bluff Area Daily's Barn Charm.

The first image was taken at Cannonsburgh Village in Murfreesboro, TN. My cousin was getting married there and the place was a photographers paradise with displays and buildings that span approximately 100 years of life in Tennessee. In fact,the place was crawling with portrait photographers taking advantage of the ready made rustic backdrops and natural light. I'll be sharing more photos from my trip there and I'm sure I'll go back.

Speaking of "trips", had I known I'd be walking and shooting so much, I would have worn more comfortable shoes. I stepped on a rock, twisted my ankle, and took a header right up the church steps. My shoes went flying away, as did my camera and my pride. The first thing I checked, of course, was my camera. It was fine - thank goodness. My knees...well, not so much.

Now, for a little barn charm. I missed that linkup last week, so I need to stock up on my barn cache. Living in Tennessee I have no excuse not to. The image below is my parents own barn taken on a foggy Saturday morning. I got low to the ground trying photograph their kitty and decided I liked the perspective. I added a little Shadowhouse Creations "Used Canvas 4" texture.

  7. You have such a great pulse with these textures. I'm still struggling to find how to best use them. They both have such a wonderful mood.
    Hope your knee is feeling better. I recently re-habbed a nasty sprained ankle. Definitely cut into my photo excursions a bit. Up and running again now-hope you are too.
