Panorama Play

Posted on 7:26 PM by jr cline | 2 comments

 I played with the DMD panorama app on my iPhone some.  I thought I'd share these three with you.
 
This is my office.  Big mess!  You can't tell it, but I've already cleaned out a lot things.
 
Garages tend to become storage areas and mine in no exception.  How does your garage look?
   
This is the mess in the shop.  Almost all of this has to be tossed, donated, sold, or sent home with its owner.
What do you think?  About average?  Worse that most?
I like the DMD app.  It is very easy to use and in good light takes a pretty good panoramic picture.

Fall Color

Posted on 10:11 AM by jr cline | 1 comments

I manged to pick up a little fall color this month and thought I'd post a few for my friend Carly over at Ellipsis.
 
  
   Bradford Pear
   
 
I'm not the best at taking care of my yard so I wind up with a lot of big weeds.

 A neat little lake I sometimes pass when I go Wallyworld.

 Nuts are one of my favorite snack foods.
   
  They are only weeds if they are growing where they aren't wanted.

A Positive Day

Posted on 7:37 AM by jr cline | 1 comments

Christmas and Thanksgiving have always been family holidays for me.  Now that both my children are living on other parts of the planet and my parents have taken on a different form Thanksgiving isn't a day that seems special.  I attempt to be thankful every day.  I believe in living a life of gratitude and appreciate for all the wonder that surrounds me.  I often applaud and cheer when I step out the front door. 
  
Here is an abbreviated run down of my day.
 
I began my day with a cup coffee.  I turned on the colored lights and tuned in the Grateful Dead.  Yes, I'm a Dead Head.   I prepared and ate a small breakfast.  After washing my plate I sat down and caught up on some blogging and email.  When the sun came up I fed Einstein and Bilbo.
I worked on the Banner project for a few hours while Einstein walked around exploring the floor.
After taking a bath, I got ready to leave the house.   I thought it could be fun to go somewhere to read 'The Dharma Bums' and take some pictures. 
  
Along the way, I stopped to look at some motor homes.


  The place was closed and I didn't get to look inside.
  

Continuing on down the road, I came to the Ella S. Rowan Spring.  Travelers on the old stagecoach route would stop at Ms. Rowan's to get a drink from her spring.  She sold the spring to the city on the condition that the water would always be available at no charge to people who came by for a drink.
  
  On the same old stagecoach route I stopped to take photos in Mount Hebron Cemetery
   
It was odd to find two graves with my last name on them.  If I had some older living relatives, I'd ask them if they knew anything about those graves.
  
  Eventually I arrived at my sibling's house for Thanksgiving dinner.
  
We shared a delicious meal and had a lot of laughs.
  
It was a good day to be alive.

Negative to Positive

Jesse wanted to visit this huge frog sculpture.  So Christy, Jesse, and I headed out.  Jesse was a little afraid of it when we got there and wouldn't go near the frog. 
  
 After walking around and looking at the other art there, he got a bit braver.
 

In the end he was able to walk up and touch it by himself.  He was really excited and when his dad got home from work the first thing Jesse told him was about visiting the frog.   I should point out that Jesse called it a dinosaur most the time and a T-Rex a couple of times.

Slit-scan app

Posted on 6:28 PM by jr cline | 1 comments

 While riding around at night I've been playing with the Slit-scan camera app.    

 I'm not saying these are great pictures.
  
 But it certainly is fun to see what happens.
  
  
  
 btw - I wasn't driving while I was doing this.
  
   
  I'll do some day time shooting and post what I think of this app.

Civil War Reenactment.

It was a wonderful fall day. for the battle at The Old Baker Farm Cotton Pickin' Celebration.    
  
 Not too differently than at the Battle of Bull Run,
a large crowd gathers on the edge of battle field. 
   
  A mother and her two sons cross the terrace.
 
 A Confederate soldier walks out to greet them.  
Her husband and the boys' father?
 
 Moments later a mounted Union officer arrives at the same spot.
Tensions mount.

The other troops had set up camp closer to the fort.

It was a beautiful fall day. for my annual visit to The Old Baker Farm Cotton Pickin' Celebration.   I had a fun day taking photos and talking with different people.

  Another of the living history events was a Civil War Reenactment.
 
   There were two large encampments of reenactors.  
This camp was close to the High Banks Indian Village.
  
  Getting a little nap before the battle.
