Mandarin Orange Monday 25

I have been scanning my old slides again – this time from travels around the UK in 1977. The shots aren’t all that sharp but still provide opportunities for  developing into orange photo art. Unfortunately I did not name the slides so I am hoping that some of my UK visitors, or others who have travelled in the UK, might be able to identify them. All I can say is that they are architectural ruins – of castles and probably abbeys.

  1. Great work with all Lori – but this one : "Nik Color Efex Burnt Sienna, Polaroid Transfer, Saturation Stylizer" I have to say "uff" it doesn't fit the picture (as an old photograph I am I can't help telling 😉 ) sorry – wouldn't offend you though.. I will be with you in a short finde an orange picture of my own I am glad you start sending out messenges because I wouldn't find you again (big computer crash here)

  2. I love old architectural ruins … they have so many stories to tell. You editing adds umph to the stories and the pictures. I am not familier with Nik Color Effects … is that on the internet, or is it software. Just askin' 🙂 Great pictures, Lori. I especially like the last two …Andrea @ From The Sol

  3. That reminds me of how I keep a journal thinking that it will help me identify my photos. But, usually I wait too long after my travels and my notes really aren't as good as I think they are when I quickly make my jots. Hope you can find your photos. Did you think to see if Google is any help?

  4. can't help you with the castles/monasteries – Any idea what part of England you were staying, at the time? Regardless of name, the orange backgrounds look particularly good as silhouettes the outlines and gives a sense of inferno (many of them were burnt to the ground)Managed to find a photo yesterday to join the orangery!

  5. Thanks everyone:) What an interesting collection of comments. And to think one of you-Bluebell Woods- was actually able to identify one of the ruins!! Cowdrey House in the south of England. I can now read up on it to refresh my memory. Thank you Bluebell Woods:)Andrea Nik Color Efex is software – a group of filters that can be used with Photoshop, Aperture and possibly other applications.Kaylene I am glad you have been converted too:) We have to make sure we don't get lazy and rely on them though…it is tempting!Diane – I agree about the notes too… especially if your hand writing is as bad as mine! I have trouble deciphering my notes on techniques used for these orange pics!Eljaygee- we travelled all over the UK in a combi – so they could be anywhere…Thanks again everyone and welcome back:)
