The Old Wagon

On Monday I had the opportunity to take a bus load of Kindergarten children to a petting farm.
The children had a great time with the animals.I did not take pictures of many of the animals this year,because I had been to the same place last year.
One thing that caught my attention was an old wagon,sitting at the side of the lawn.
These pictures were taken with the iPhone and also edited on the phone.

Here is the 'mostly 'original shot. I did tweak the colours a little,because it looked kind of washed out.


Just because I can,I added a frame to the picture.


And then,once again,just because I can,I turned the picture into a sepia tone.
I thought this seemed fitting for this scene.


Do you have a favourite from these shots. Let me know,I would love to hear you likes and dislikes.

  1. I'm not generally a fan of either B&W or Sepia ---but that particular photo looks great in Sepia... Think that would be my favorite.

  2. That is a real old time 'buggy'. A lovely two seater. In order of preference I'd have to say first and foremost, the sepia version as it brings home the historical effect miles better than the coloured versions. Second would be the softer colours of the first one.
    What a great find! I certainly would not be leaving it out in the open without any protection against the weather.

  3. The sepia one is my favorite for this particular photo. It seems to fit the time period well.

  4. I, too, usually prefer the original coloring in the photo to artsy alterations. But I have to admit...that sepia version definitely enhances the feel of this picture.

  6. Oh my! This is just a wagon with a seat! A very pretty subject! Even though it is like an old picture, I somehow find the sepia just a wee bit hard on my eyes! I think I like the middle the best, more colorful and bright, it pops, and the frame is so befitting.

  12. Most definitely, the sepia one is my favorite. This would make for a beautiful frames picture. This is neat....and I like how you played with color, which gave us all a different view of the wagon.

  14. The sepia is so perfect for this! I love shooting with the iPhone as I think it does a splendid job, especially of landscapes. What app do you use to process?

  17. This wagon does call for a sepia image, and yours is wonderful. It looks as aged as the wagon itself. All three versions of this image are wonderful.

  18. I liked seeing the original and then seeing some of what can be done with it!

  21. That is a cool old horse-drawn buggy! I like all the effects. I think my favorite is the second one, in the frame.

  22. The sepia adds to the charm of this scene, and I also like the addition of the milk can. My post today is also about 'photo editing' just because sometimes the artistic juices just need to flow a bit more than just 'in the camera'!

  23. I really like all three versions but if you made me chose a favorite I would chose the sepia, mainly because it has the look of a real vintage photo. Nice job!

  24. The sepia one is very fitting for the subject matter.

  25. The Sepia is the one that seems to fit its time frame, and the way you would usually see it pictured in old books or magazines.

  26. Considering the subject of the photo, I really like the Sepia tone the best. Nice work!

  32. You and that camera make a fine pair. You do an excellent job on the different versions.

  33. That is a hard choice. I like the second one very much, but then the sepia is very good also especially for this type of subject as it gives it a historical look.

  34. Without a doubt, the sepia. It's a perfect treatment for this image. Beautifully done, Ruth.
