More artified old photos and “Q” stories voting reminder

The Alphabet Challenge “Q” Stories voting round is following the same pattern as that of many voting rounds . . . namely, it has stalled. OK, I don’t reaaly know because I’m writing this a few days ahead of publication. It could be hundres of people voted . . . but I doubt that. Odd are, we’re still stalled.

Some readers (them with a favorite story) are understandably worried. Other readers could care less (yes, that’s the correct to write that).

Regardless of which reader and voter you are, thank you in advance for eventually reading our stories and for eventually casting a vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge Q-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link Votes will be accepted until noon on October 5th.

These posts will be very short because of stuff, but still at least two photos, and in these posts, they are photos from past posts, reworked using Topaz Impression 2.0 and Topaz Studio 1.0 . . .

A few might remember the original in THIS<<link post.

Today’s second photo is a cactus from THIS<<link post . . .

For reasons, these photos will not be added to SmugMug until sometime next week.

No extra link today because there are two others above that readers can explore.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    I like your choice of frame for the first photo . . . very elegant . . . even sophisticated. Your second photo exudes lots of freshness.

  2. Spectacular photos…both of them…and your frame choices are always sublime! The first photo captures me in and I get lost in it. The second photo makes me smile.
