Wheels of Downton...

I'm a big fan of Downton Abbey.  I don't think I know a soul who doesn't enjoy this fine program.

It seemed proper to use a vintage-type photo with one of Kim's Downton textures.  My original photo of buggy wheels and bicycle tires was taken in Sherbrooke Village, Nova Scotia.

Surely not everyone in Downton has an automobile!

What a great shot, and perfect processing with this texture. I have never watched one single episode of this and can see that i need to get going on this and rent some of them. Right away!

I'm a fan of Downton too. But I haven't made time to play with KK's textures yet. I can see Isobel riding the bike...before, you know what.

Oh yes!!! Big Fan. Your wheels are perfect for the theme today, and the texture is too.

What a fun old-timey picture. I've heard lots of good things about Downton Abby, but never seen it myself. Hopping over from wordless Wednesday.
