Days Gone By

Yesterday, I edited my first photo in Gimp! John walked me through some of the steps I had trouble with but I did the work.

We visited our local Depot Museum and took photos of a caboose they have on display. I don’t know about anyone else (besides the caboose operators) but I was so sad when they stopped using the cabooses! We brought the girls with us and grabbed a Frosty for fortification in the hot sun. (Yes, it’s still hot here, though it is cooling off in the mornings and evenings.) Here’s the photo I edited. I have a few more I want to play around with but this is the one I chose to work with first. I had a definite result in mind. This is pretty close to what I wanted to achieve, so I’m happy with it. Another plus when using Gimp, is that I get to sign my work! Yea!
