Barrett Ranch House in Jamul,CA via SOHO San Diego

Barrett Ranch House
I pass by this house at least once a week on my way to the Jamul Post Office . 
It's sad how it's abandoned and nothing is being done about it. 
I would love to make it into a Community Farmers Market. 
Any investors? lol 
This 1891 two-story Victorian farmhouse in Jamul has been abandoned for years now and is deteriorating as we speak. The wood facades and special architectural elements, such as double front porches and a bay window, are still painted barn-red with white trim, as is the large barn next to the house. It appears vandals have stripped the interior and uninvited guests may have made it their home. The house stands on a 185-acre property once owned by Hal Simpson, a nurseryman from Los Angeles. He opened Simpson's Nursery on 25 of the acres during the 1960s. Once an East County attraction, the nursery closed, leaving the abandoned house even more vulnerable. Who is responsible for the site is still a bit of a mystery.

Simple Monday Morning Memories

Blessed to have Monday mornings off! Whenever someone passes by I wave like old friends. They do wave back yet I'm sure wondering why I'm the only one with my window blinds opened. I've turned into my Mom. Every morning, a cup of coffee and open the curtains. I once read, we never leave home, we take it with us.

Spring Time 2015 with Photo Editor Pic-Monkey

Had a few hours in between dropping off Julia (16) at school. Decided to drop by Skyline Church Cafe for coffee and quiet time before playing Facilities Manager at Ace Self Storage. After reading emails stopping by Facebook, I ended up on PicMonkey. The following are pictures I took last summer. With a few editing tricks the photos really take on a life of their own.

It's great for adding your Blog name to your pictures!


This is a picture on a wall taken with my Canon PowerShot SX210 IS
I added  the "Dark Edges" effect to darken bringing out the softer tones. 


My Bible, I added "Bokeh Shapes" which gave the effects of little crosses! 

Another picture of a picture adding Orton and Film Grain editor. 
I think I found a new hobby! lol
