Court House







"I need to work until 6" my wonderful hubby said yesterday. 
I arrived to pick him up a few minutes early. The late afternoon sun shed it's end of summer glow across the side and rear of the buildings. No more do I need to think "I wish I'd brought my camera". With the street mostly empty of cars I could really appreciate the stately beauty of out town Court House. Too shady for a regular photo, I was keen to see what Waterlogue would create from the scene. Wow! I love what it's done.

Maybe I need to take a wander around town and play tourist, some of the older buildings have lovely details which we rush past in our daily lives moving from A to B. I'll have to make a time, for otherwise it never seems to happen.....

Perfect. Looks like a real watercolor!

Lisa said...

Oh my my my...these are fabulous. Now I am itching to see a picture of a quilt made over with this app - how cool!!!

Waterlogue made a good job of these already nice photos. Which process in Waterlogue did you choose for these? I know what you been about trying to make time.

Kim said...

Wow!! This waterlogue app of yours just gets better and better doesn't it? The possibilities using this app are limitless!!

Erica Sta said...

I work with Adobe PhotoShop, Illustrator and so On ... ... But they are without such a good Filter like waterlogue! You picture is very good and you take also good paper, what I see. Now it's time to get this Software for me, I think ;)

I would not be able to tell the difference between a genuine watercolour and this app. they are brilliant.

very beautiful work!

Lisa Gordon said...

These sure are pretty, Karen.
What a neat app this is.

Happy day to you!

perfekt! nydelige bilder !

TheChieftess said...

I truly thought you had branched out into water color painting!!! I rarely like photos tweaked like this...but these are well done!!! Interesting ap!

Janneke said...

I first thought you had been watercolouring yourself, these are beautiful!

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Good question Mary Huey. Our town was officially named in 1851 but "cedar getters” started arriving after 1831 to fell the huge red cedar trees which were/are very valuable.
Bearing in mind the first white Australian settlement (convicts) only began in 1788, it makes our country town rather old by Australian standards.

Elise Lea said...

Wow those are beautiful. I actually thought they were watercolor paintings at first until I remembered the App you mentioned. Just stunning, Thanks for sharing!

Nina said...

Wonderful photoart! The light is awesone, the roof, the small windows ... Love them, Karen! I like waterlogue as well, I need to try is also outside and with architectural buildings - Thank you for the inspiration!

genie said...

My hubby and I have fallen in love with this app. Went back and looked at your other pictures, too. Love the way the app works. Thanks so much for sharing it with us. The photos are awesome.

Erin said...

Love the look, can see why it's a popular place for wedding photos

Dorothy Adamek said...

Waterlogue!?! Who knew?? Not me.
But now... I fear how much I will play with this app. THANKS so much for sharing!! I'm hooked. :)

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Erin, I didn't know this spot was popular for wedding photos - but I can see why.

DeniseinVA said...

It has created a gorgeous painting, two of them. Love them!

bettyl-NZ said...

You're right, sometimes we need to see the 'old' things with new eyes. Love these edits a lot.

Jeanne said...

Such a wonderful thing to get to arrive in town at a later time and view this peaceful scene. Isn't waterlogue a fun app. I have it on my phone, and think it makes even the plainest scene in to a piece of artwork.

Liz said...

I've been searching for an app like this for my iPad/iPhone. It's perfect!

I love these images Karen.
