Re-do….

RR SS Ver 2.jpg

I was looking through old images and ran across this one. I posted it here a couple of years ago, but wasn’t as satisfied with it as I should have been. I reprocessed the RAW file through newer software to see if there would be any different results.  Most people wouldn’t notice the changes, but I did. Small things, like the rails are cleaner, the grass in the center of the tracks is visible, barely, but there. More clouds in this one too.  One thing stayed the same… it makes me want to travel.

So, do you….?

Do You LR.jpg

Early morning at a RR crossing in Mississippi 3 years ago…. I had to question myself a couple of times about crossing as there WAS a train each morning at that crossing.

Fishing partner

Reel.jpg

For almost 30 years I’ve had a steady fishing partner… lakes, rivers, the ocean or a stream, it never complains. The cork on the rod handle has worn and is saturated with water, salt, mud, coffee, suntan lotion, sweat, various fish & bait scents, machine oil and some I can’t identify.

A hundred different lines have been carefully added or subtracted from it’s spool helping to reel in everything from the smallest minnow to large sea trout, rays and even a shark or two.

Old age is finally showing it’s ugly head with a few damaged parts, even though it’s been downgraded to my “2nd” rod it still is present at every fishing outing.

I suppose we’ll retire together someday.

Seaside

Bird one.jpg

Sea Island, Ga…. sometime in the late 80’s. My wife and I were spending a long weekend celebrating our wedding anniversary when I spotted this bird sitting on the dock piling. Those were film days, long before digital. You had to compose, run some calculations through your head, set the camera and…. wait until the film is processed and proofed to know if you got your shot. I was able to fire off 3 frames before the bird took offense at me being there, this was the middle image.

Maui at night

SS HM-n.jpg

This photo was shot 13 years ago with a early design digital camera. I know it was taken on the island of Maui, Hawaii and I think, pretty sure, seem to remember it was a night shot. But, it’s digital and we live in the world of Photoshop. Maybe it was a sunset, or sunrise and I was goofing around some years ago in Photoshop. Guess I’ll have to check the RAW file but I kinda like it as a night image, full moon shining on the sea….
