Theme Day - Photo of the Year 2011

I took this photo last May at the Living History Museum of Shoal Creek.  I blurred the edges to give it a dreamy effect and like how it complemented the old building and wagon.

The first of the month is always Theme Day at CDP.  Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

How lovely. I remember seeing a place a bit like this in Utah a while back. Such a dreamy setting too.

The dreamy effect created a sense of fantasy and recollection, something to look at and ponder for a long time. Wishing you Happy New Year 2012!

I love this effect, Regina. I use it quite a bit myself.
I do love the green in this one--full of life and history
Happy New Year!

Hi, Regina. HNY to the western half of MO. This just looks like May, fresh and appealing, not yet the baked textures of a Missouri summer.

It's a lovely photo, giving the scene a feeling of peace and serenity. Enjoy 2012!

I miss those vibrant greens while looking out my window on a world of white!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful New Year!
