  September 2020 - Toronto ON

Rain's Garden's challenge is ARCHITECTURE.

My second time participating and the challenge is Architecture.

I'm not an artist, but I love playing with software. I took a photo from our trip to Europe last year.

Château de Chenonceau Loire Valley France

Converted this using PicMonkey.

I used a new to me editing program Instapainting here. Filter Flower Market

PhotoFunia is a favourite of mine. I thought this was fun to include.

Also from PhotoFunia, I couldn't resist.


  1. You are a woman after my heart. I too love to play with photos digitally. I also make attempts at art, but digital art is my best option :) These were great choices for "Architecture" and I love your choices for modifying. And, I learned about a new free (I hope) editing program. Enjoyed my visit, Jackie. Hope you are well and doing all you can to stay safe ...

  2. this is fun! I have no idea when it comes to this kind of technology.

  3. I'd love to be able to do what you do. I have an old version of PhotoShop and can't do much more than crop and add my watermark (grin). You are a genius.

  4. Chenonceau has always been a favorite of ours -- so etherial! I love the fact that during World War II it was an escape route because it spans a river that bounded the edge of Nazi territory. And you could go through the castle and be out of their clutches -- sort of.

    be well... mae at

  5. wonderful architecture and great idea the digital processing of the photo!
    I wish you a nice day, Elke

  6. Hi Jackie :)) I love your pieces this week! I visited that Chateau when I visited France many moons ago, along with others, they are brilliant and I love how you had fun with the softwares! I'm going to check out Instapainting! :)

  7. Jackie,

    Great photo-edits! I love to use Pixelmator Pro for photo play and lately I've used my iPad app Brushstrokes to reinvent photo into painting-like images. It's a very cool program! In recent months I've play around with PhotoFunia and I think in last week's Friday Sillies I shared one of my image creations. :) Have a phototastic day!
