Day 2 and Day 3 of the 7 Day Picture Challenge...

I had to head into Calgary after work yesterday, so I threw the camera in the car and was looking for something to take a picture of all the way to the city!   Great way to stay awake too!!  

I pulled off the hiway and decided that this old barn would be the photo of the day.  I got playing with some basic editing in IPhoto, and made the picture look a little bit antiqued with fuzzy edges.  As you can see from the picture below, the blue sky wasn't right behind the barn until I shot further away.  I am so inexperienced at this picture stuff.  But, hope you like it anyway



I shot the next picture when I got back into Hanna today.  This is the sign to the old Seymour Hotel in Hanna.  It is close to the railway track and way back in the day the people getting off the train would be able to see the HOTEL sign from the train station.  I would have to do some research to find out when it closed, but now it is just a dilapitated old building on the edge of town.  






Boy if these old walls could talk!!



I am also listing some other photographers that are playing along, so be sure to check them out too, or why not join in yourself!  Thanks to Sarah for getting us all going  :)

Oooh, I really like that first barn photo. The photo does look vintage with those effects. And the barn itself looks like it's floating all alone on the snow. Very picturesque.

That barn photo is amazing! It has a "Little House on the Prairie" look to it. I can definitely see this framed & hanging on a wall.
