It's Paid For by Donnie Voelker

Please click photo to see detail I shot this circa 1800’s row house in Zelienople, Pa on Main Street. The town is one of those little cute country farm towns where everyone knows each other. I recently learned that in the U.S. having a RED front door on your home means that “the home has been paid off”. I shot this with a Nikon D5000 18-55 VR Nikkor. Enhanced and multi textured in in PSPX4. Erasing the telephone, electric lines and shadows was some of the toughest editing I have ever done. Thank you so much for looking :)

My Name is Donnie. I won my first Johnny Quest camera through The Pittsburgh Press at age 6 and since then there was no looking back. I have 2 passions in my simple life. Spending time with my little girl and taking and editing photographs. I started editing photo’s about 2 years ago and I still have so much to learn. I love seeing beautiful and strive to shoot it. Any comments and or advise from you is very appreciated and most welcomed. Thank you for looking!

    hi Donnie, since I took up photography recently, I definitely have more of an interest in it and different techniques….but I’ve enjoyed ‘abstract’ art and photography for many years now too :)

  • Your ART is Beautiful and never Stop creating!!!! I am happy that your learning photography tho :) It seems your good at everything!!!

    Terrific image Donnie. Love the graphic quality of it, and especially that red door in another wise B&W pic. A definite No Brainer Faver.>Ron<
