Vintage Fun

This week I've been playing around with some vintage looks in my photos.  The first is a shot of an old Underwood typewriter I took at the Sundridge pioneer log cabin.
Mouse over photo to see the 'before' image.
I've added some layers of textures, including some with text, using some of the ideas I've learned in Kim Klassen's Beyond Layers.

This second shot was taken a couple of years ago in a bakery in Guelph.
