Put Your Photos in the Past

Posted on
Once in awhile I’ll take a picture that calls out for something different. In the case of the photo below when I first looked at it on my computer monitor, I thought it could have been taken back in the time of the American Old West in the mid-1800’s. Those photos are in tones of … Continue reading "Put Your Photos in the Past"
