Crackerjack Texture

The Texture Tuesday challenge this week is to use Kim Klassen's new texture "Crackerjack" with any photo.  I took this photo while on vacation in France a few years ago.  It's one of my favorites.

I don't know how I missed this one Pat. This is wonderful. It caught my eye because it looks like a photo I too in Italy. I see France is big on bikes too. I love how the texture enhanced the wall, which has glorious texture built in. Nice work.
