storefront #3


ain't this a treasure? This is the perverbial "junk" flea market store. There was almost no way to get in as the snow was piled in front of the door, albeit the door was open, and no one seemed to be there. I have never been inside but in the summer the "goods" are piled up outside on the sidewalk, as well as in the store. This wee store is in a little town/village not far from here. Walton. Looks like it's waiting for someone to go inside....

Get in there Val and find some treasure. I am longing to enter! How wonderful with all the snow piled up around the window.
I think it is a shame the tree is there. If you can't get them to cut it down LOL (I mean it is growing rather close to the door. Just image if it got any bigger. I believe they should cut it down now.) I reckon it is possible to clone it out. Have you tried cloning yet Val? It is just one of those things where practice and patience are worth it. I wasn't sure at first whether you should crop out the background building but I think I prefer it as it is. I like the added colour.

heck of a place for a tree.... this summer I'm going to take more photos of the wee store with the "goodies" outside. It is so tiny and smack up against the next building. I didn't think a photo face on would be as good, but ma
ybe. No not a great cloner yet.

I like the frosty lacey looking windows and the color and texture of the walls and the snow around the door. I do agree that the building net to it adds a hint of color and draws the eye to the i nteresting green of the building.

Cloning is a big pain and quite triesome (I'm exhausted right now), but if you were to clone, I'd clone out that little shelf in the lower right, the wire one. I don't mind the tree because it adds to the mystery of the open door somehow.
