Rednesday: Weathered Buildings with Red Windows in Chemult

If you ever wondered what that saturation button does, 
the photo above explains it nicely.

I took these a week and a half ago when we took Kylie down to Chemult to get on the train.  They were located 1/2 a small block away from the train station.  I wish I knew the whole story behind them.  When I find out, I'll let you know.  I wonder if they might have been those cool old houses that were moved by rail to a new railroad and/or logging camp when they were building the railroads/and or logging camps?  They are very mysterious to me.  But, they have red windows and therefore they count for Rednesday.

Happy Rednesday, my friends!

Love that saturation button! My daughter uses that feature not with her camera, which doesn't offer it, but with the photo program she has. These photos are poem inspiring.

You really came up with a winning post today. Those old buildings and their red windows are a perfect feature. I am like you, I am inclined to think they were temporary houses for the workers there.

I'd love to know about those buildings too, because they sure have aged beautifully! And you took really great shots of them too!
Happy REDnesday,

Sheila, well thank you so much for coming to visit and admiring my work! I am finally beginning to feel like a real photographer.

Hi Lisa, I used the saturation setting on my computer, to be truthful. My camera does have an aperture setting and I do try to use it ... that is usually when my shadow shots happen. That is so fun that she is learning young ... more years to practice.

LV, thank you! One reason why I think so is that they were close to the tracks and are sitting on logs. Someday, when I write my book, they will play a part in it. I sure appreciate you stopping by to say hello.

Hi Carol, well, now you and LV have set me up for a mission to find out. Thank you so much for coming to see me, and Happy Rednesday to you too!
