Yesterday, I took the day off from all social media. I do that every now and then and it’s always a good break.

I spent my day reading, perusing cookbooks, and doing a bit of photo editing. Hubs was outside working all afternoon, so I didn’t even have the TV on.

I came across this photo I took a while back of an abandoned farm house and found it a bit of a challenge to set the mood.

The original was colour, but somehow looked flat. I tried several different black and white renderings, but they turned out too harsh because of the light bark on the tree.

I finally settled on this soft sepia tone filter. I don’t often use filters when I’m photo editing. That said, this photo needed a little something, and I believe sepia was the answer.
