This is also my entry for this week's Take A Word challenge, "Print." I tried to create the look of a vintage tourist postcard. The words are copied from a book by the Fairfield Historical Society. I took liberties with the Bronson Windmill, because it doesn't look like the image that I used. You can see a few pictures I took of it here.
The font is Romeodn Medium.
I have a master list for all of my Digital Whisper 100 theme entries here.
This week’s Inspiration Avenue challenge was “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” This is my first entry for this challenge site. I made a theme around the movie, "It's a Wonderful Life."

I did a "re-do" on this when I realized the pine cones on the bottom should've been facing upward. This time, the print out was purple instead of gold, and the scan is very washed out. I think I need a new printer.
Important Note: You must install Python before installing GIMP 2.6.11, otherwise Python-Fu won't appear in the Filters menu, Python plugins won't appear in the Help - Plug-In Browser, and Python plugins won't appear in your menus.
If you already installed GIMP 2.6.11, you need to uninstall it, and then install it again. This time it should have the Python support box checked and non-grey this time. You will have to make the change to default.env again, after you re-install GIMP, but your GIMP Folders changes should be retained (the uninstall doesn't delete the GIMP folder).
I took these pictures of trees in my yard yesterday morning, during the start of Nor’Easter Snow Storm Alfred. Over 600,000 are without power in CT. I am one of the fortunate ones who never lost power. The reason why this storm was especially destructive is because around here, the trees are still partially leaf covered, and this was a heavy wet snowfall. We don’t usually have snowfall in October.
As the storm continued, my dogwood tree started bowing over, as did other trees in my yard. The storm changed over to rain, though. Once the sun comes up, I will be able to assess the condition of my trees, to see if any broke under the weight of the snow, or if the rain spared them by washing it off of them.
I took these pictures on October 22, 2011 in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, in Sleepy Hollow NY. It was thrilling to see the actual gravestone of Washington Irving, and to be in the village where his famous story took place. Sleepy Hollow NY is near the Tappan Zee Bridge and about a 45 minute drive for me to get to. More pictures from the cemetery are posted on my blog.
