And still more artified old photos and “Q” stories voting reminder

The Alphabet Challenge “Q” Stories voting round is . . . well, I don’t know what it’s doing. Let’s assume it’s doing well and I’m here to thank you. Thank you.

Readers might wonder why I’m posting posts ahead of time. Well, I’m not posting them ahead of time; I’m writing them ahead of time and scheduling them. Other readers don’t care about the how or why; they just want a reminder and some photos.

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 . . .

Yes, another photo from THIS<<link post. One of my favorites from that post.

This next photo is from what was my yard in Colorado . . .

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

No extra link today because there’s one above that readers can explore.

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