And then they could wheel them around town. :) Nice catch and postprocessing. The sepia makes it look like an older photo.

This looks like the illustration from a beautiful old book. The sepia toning is just right. I love the laciness of the scaffolding and the foliage. It's a great photo subject with the trellis itself, that "X" bracing and the two large scaffolds. So many lines to follow. Even the workmen look dazed!

Nowadays, the gasoline price affect on everything! This old tool may become useful again :-)
Great effect, Larry!

Hi Larry,
This is an excellent and interesting scene. Great tone. Never know it may come back. LOL

Barbara, I'm thinking you know how she is. Or how she was.

I'm with Cindi -- are they taking requests? Nah, it does look like a trellis. Shoot.
Watercolor-paper treatment is really cool with this!

...gives new meaning to the name "hang out."

Nice capture of men at work, Larry.
Love the clarity and tone.

This is cool....there's a few politicians I'd like to hang...hmmmm....never mind! Didn't mean to think out loud!

Nicely done in B&W
Barbara Meredith27-May-2008 22:07
Forgot to say that I like the B/W for
this particular shot.
Barbara Meredith27-May-2008 22:03
And how is dear cousin Rachel, Larry?
