Sepia Scenes: Garden Gate

This is an older shot from Fernwood Gardens in Michigan, sepia-fied with the good old AOL photo editor. (If they take that away, I'm cooked.)

This is really a double gate, like a little house; there is an inner and an outer gate/wall, with benches inside between the two. Once the hubby's woodshop is up and running, I'm putting in an order for one like it.

There's a lot more to see at Sepia Scenes, so click over and explore.

ooooooww...that is so neat. Ok, you will see a sepia photo from me. I am going to go find out how to make one from the PS Elements..

I love photos of gates and this one is a beauty.

You were saying if they took aol photo editor away you would be cooked...have you heard of Picasa? It is a free little photo software...you can do quite a bit with it. Just google it...actually I think it is from Google.

This is lovely in sepia!
I can just imagine sitting inside reading a book.
Love the lighting too.

Lovely gate. Reminds me of Hokone Gardens in Los Gatos, CA.

Oh my that is a very interesting shot and also very lovely. I love the way the play of light of shadow.

What an interesting building.

It looks like the perfect child's hideaway :-). (Are my mommyblogger roots showing?)

Another mystery gate making me curious to see the other side of the fence. I can see why you would be wanting to have one for yourself! A great choice for sepia scenes!

Hi guys. Sorry to be so late responding, but I did want to say Thanks for all your comments! I'm glad you liked the photo and found the gate as mysterious as I did.

Rose, thanks for the tip on Picasa! I have Elements, but I can't figure out how to use it. The AOL editor has a button that says Sepia on it. I open a photo, click the button, and I'm done. I'm gonna miss that. LOL

A beautiful sepia-fied gate, Maraca! And don't worry is AOL takes away photo-editing there are plent of other editors out there - and of course I'd help you get used to a new one! :)

What a pretty gate. Makes you want to go inside and see what's there. I love the sepia shots - they add such a feeling of warmth and mystery.
