Weathered Window


This broken window, with it's sash askew and a piece of white fabric flapping in the breeze has captivated me for a few years now.

We see it on one of the North Hills Pottery Tour stops each year. It never fails to delight, set into the chippy red siding of this aging barn.

This time of year, it could be considered a subtle Halloween vignette--especially when the cloth flutters in the autumn wind.

I used the same shot, cropped in tight on the window and applied the daguerreotype feature on Pic Monkey to give it a more mysterious feel. In the spirit of the season.


What do you think? Ghostly or just ghastly?

Make it a great day!

  2. Ghostly! Love the effects. I've used that one in PicMonkey and love it. Now you just need a ghost in that window. :0)

  3. This is the kind of thing that really captures my imagination! It's amazing how the entire feel can be changed by withdrawing the color. It's simply sinister without the color!
