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….?

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.

Throwback Monday

Falls 2.jpg

A photo from 10 years ago, I was traveling back home after a business meeting and decided to take a lunch break at the Cumberland Falls park in Kentucky.  It was an overcast rainy day but I carried two different high tech digital cameras with me that day (that was part of the business meeting) so I walked around taking photos of what I could find, this was an “2nd” image that I always liked.

Fishing partner

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.

Yeah, I know, another sunset….

Another Sunset.jpg

For those that know me, one of the things I seem to do is take a lot of photos of sunsets. Eh, it’s fun for me and they usually look nice. It’s also a quiet time (most of the time) and the craziness of the day slips away. Reflection (pardon the pun) time.
