Texture Teusday


Today's challenge was based around the theme of 'vintage'.  So I thought I'd look up the word 'vintage' and came up with the following definitions:  the class of a dated object with reference to era ofproduction or use: a hat of last year's vintage.   old-fashioned or obsolete

The question is how do these definitions translate into photos?  I decided to go to my vintage photos from the 60's.  I have many old photos that I have scanned and store in my computer.  I love them all.  As I type this I can think of several that I wish I had worked on for today's Texture Tuesday entry.  

This image was taken in '66 or '67 by my Mom.  It is the home that I grew up in before it was raised.  I love the look of this simple home.  If you enlarge the photo you can see the reflection of the ocean and beach in the upper right hand window.  In the left hand window is  a reflection of an old car from that era.  If you'd like to see how this house was transformed originally check out this post

So to add to the vintage feel of this image I used several layers.  I started with kk's golden on multiply 70 %, next I added kk's luminous on color burn 38% and finally I added a layer of kk's dusty rose  on screen 39%.  I added a mask to each layer and removed the texture from the two windows so that you could see the reflection.  I am pleased with the final result.
