I haven’t gotten any of my latest pics off the camera yet, so today you get another older one:~)  Today it’s cold, windy, & rainy.  Boo!  I anxiously await cheerier weather, so I can spend more time walking around getting a nice selection of new pics in different areas of town & the broader area.  In the mean time, when I’m less lazy have some much older pics, & pics from traveling around, I’d like to use.  I need to get around to scanning them.

This is another unedited photo.  I have an edited version of this one, but I like the original better.  It looks more real.


Not Quite Dead: Stevenson, Alabama; Jan 20, 2007

At first glance this building looks empty, but just inside the window you can see a desk set-up.  That, plus the winter state of the tree in the foreground, inspired the title.

I spent most of my time on this one cropping & trying different effects.  In the end I settled on this crop of it & just a little tweaking of the light.  I added the original & a different crop below just to show the difference. (more…)

shop dog in downtown Stevenson, Alabama
Downtown Doggy

I don’t know if he was supposed to be guarding the antiques & junk in this shop, but he was only mildly interested in my presence.  Nobody was going to get that rug he was laying on at any rate. 

All of these pics were taken with an old camera I no longer own.  I believe it was a Kodak digital of some sort; similar to what I have now. I don’t think any of these pics were edited at all.  More pics behind the click! (more…)
