So….. what’s  a boy to do when away from the home computer and about 3 weeks worth of photos to work through???  Well, for starters, he looks around on his laptop and happily discovers his photos from New Mexico stashed away nicely!!


I’ve been fascinated with the work of the Refrigerator Magnate.  Inky does some fantastic work, and he often edits his images to give them a bit of a retro look.

Thusly motivated, I’ve taken one of my shots from the back (and forgotten) country of New Mexico and given it a bit of an aged treatment myself.


I used the pixlr-o-matic site to add the effects, what do you think??

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!!

  1. Funny, how one of the latest trends in photography seems to be making new photos look old. Very convincing treatment!

  2. Bet you knew I’d love it, too, Mr. B!
    The edge treatment / scratches almost feel TTV… great warm retro tones, too!
    Thank you so much for the kind mention, too, sir (I really appreciate it)!

  3. Thought you’d enjoy it, Inky! You’re quite welcome for the mention, you do good work, man!!
