Picture Perfect Entry {Two}

When I entered my first photo into Ordinary Miracle's and the Crazy Eight's Picture Perfect contest, I overlooked one really cool detail... You can enter up to THREE photos per challenge.  Cool! Since the close of the contest is really near (like just hours away), I went through some photos taken earlier this year that fit the bill.  I've worked really hard at tweaking them in just the way that I feel makes the photograph "work."



I shared this photograph earlier after our Day Out With Thomas.  We were able to ride a train car that was over 100 years old!  I am very nostalgic and Justin and I had so much fun pretending what it would have been like to have been traveling in that very train car so long ago.

When processing this photo of my little P, I wanted to give the feel that it was this little boy from the early 1900's on his very first train ride to his Grandparents house.... I know, I know... quirky, but SO much fun!  It took a while, but I finally achieved the feel I was going for!  (Well, maybe all but Mr. Perry's attire...)

Pop on over to the Picture Perfect challenge and check out some really amazing photographers!
