Ramshackles and Ramblings

We have this restaurant/bar here in Leesburg that is no doubt, thee place to visit if you ever find yourself in Leesburg, FL.
Sometime last year, I think, they did a complete new paint job..the building, the parking lot..oh dang, it is so cool...a photog's kind of dream location but, yeah..there is a but. Ramshackles is so popular and is open 7 days a week and the chances of not finding that parking lot even semi empty are slim and none.

I'm going to keep trying though, cuz the colors of the paint are bright and just sooo, sooooo insanely cool.

Here's one of Kolin. This was actually taken in a parking lot adjacent to the place.

And one of Bear...but done in a more artistic kind of way cuz I was bored last night. LOL!


Crazy, I know...but hey, that's me. :0)

I am sure this effect can probably be done in Photoshop by fiddling forever but I like to just click once on the mouse and waa-laa.
To get this effect I used Topaz Labs Filters from the "Adjust" collection.

If you've ever been hemming and hawing about buying these, I give it my personal two thumbs up. They install themselves..just keep clicking "next" on the install wizard. Open up Photoshop and...BAM...there they are under "filters".

The best part? Whenever an upgrade is made to the will receive an email from Topaz allowing you to get the upgrade for free.
If your an artistic dork like myself, and average photos bore you to tears...I say go for it.

Not much else going on for today, a little bit of running here and there but all in all it looks to be a pretty chilled out, get in the pool and stay there kind of day.

Well my friends, that's about all the ramblings I can come up with on only one cup of coffee this morning. I am about to crash and burn.




Have a great day all!!!

Love, Kim
