Corner Building/ Sepia Scenes

Old corner building on a corner on the main street in Port Perry, Ontario

If you look very closely, you can see a few items that  give away this photo's modern origin, but most of what's in this picture truly is old.

This is sepia on old paper worked in Photoshop Elements.

Nice composition. It looks like many small towns here in the U.S.

I suppose there's a couple of neon signs?

That is a beautiful building, the beveled corner of the structure so unique. The old brick building is full of the neat styling details that nobody builds into theirs anymore. Excellent!

I like the treatment. It looks like a vintage shot.

The blending of old and new - this is how it should be done! Love that the character of the old building was preserved.
Nice find!
Mine’s here: Round The Bend.

This looks more like art than a photography to me, as in a painting. Wonderful presentation of a beautiful old corner.

The crinkled paper effect is very neat! I'm still looking for a modern item!

AHA! Now I know why you shot high -- to hide the cars. Looks old.

Rose said...

I really like how you did this!

There is a building very similar in the town where we used to work dating back to the late 1800's. Sepia makes it look so ancient-perfect EG !

Great job! I love the "cafe" sign.

Ann said...

You mean piano cafe? Do people in the old days have piano cafe?

Nice building, and glad they are being preserved.

Patti said...

Beautiful architectural details. There are buidings with similar designs here in New England.

This almost looks like a movie set from long ago.

Wonderful rendition. I like the old time corner buildings. There are several in Seattle. MB

Beautiful buildning and great shot. I often try to avoid cars when shooting buildings, but it's not easy to avoid. You've done very well here.

I love the architecture of this old building, along with the vintage lamposts--sepia is perfect. I also like the texture you added.
