Papaikou Sugar Mill

Today Mary Goodrich of Hawaii Photo Retreat on the Big Island took me to a wonderful spot where the ruins of a Sugar Mill stands. It was built at the mouth of a stream on a beautiful black sand beach. It was such a gorgeous sunny day that I had to use a filters to create a feeling of old and nostalgic.
Through Kat Sloma, I learned of an app called Distressed FX. It’s the best app of this type I’ve found. Here are my first experimentations with the app.







  1. I really love how you grunged these up with Distressed FX. It gives “old stuff” such personality. I also like Modern Grunge for grunge effects.
