Road Construction

Posted on 3:41 PM by jr cline | 1 comments

Night road construction makes for a long, sleepy drive late at night.

 We were traveling at a 'nodding off' speed of less than 5 miles per hour.

And then we stopped for a long while.

On the upside, I did get these two pretty cool pictures.

A Day at the Creek

Posted on 8:15 AM by jr cline | 1 comments

Christy, Jesse, and I went to Weogufka Creek.  We visited the underwater bridge and Horse Stomp.

oops...
I forgot Spaz.   She went with us too. 

We were all excited, but nothing compares to the excitement of a three year old. 
Christy and Jesse shared some really fun mother and son time.  Of course you can't suppress an addicted photographer.  She got some good shots of Jesse while they were playing.
  
   
We had a great picnic lunch. Christy packed juice, Mountain Dew, Corona, Pringles, chipolata  spread, and sandwiches. Yummy!  We had to eat in shifts.  One ate while the other played in the creek with Jesse.  FUN!  
 
One of the coolest parts of visiting here is all the butterflies.  We saw so many: big, little, yellow, black, and blue.  They are almost always there except in the coldest parts of winter. 
  
Adventures morph into new adventures.  We headed home to hook up with Jeremy and have a delicious Christy made dinner:  rotisserie chicken, mashed potatoes, and salad.
  
Pictures were taken with a Lumix GF3 sporting an Olympus 40-150mm lens.   Editing was done in CS3.

Foley Black and Whites

Posted on 7:32 PM by jr cline | 2 comments

 


Christy, Jesse, and I went to Foley, Gulf Shores, and Fairhope for a variety of reasons including fun!

We stayed in the Key West Inn.  It wasn't luxury, but it was clean, quiet, nice, and had a pool which we enjoyed.
These first pictures were taken there.  
  


No stay in a motel or hotel is complete without the cleaning cart.  I greatly appreciate the service and almost always tip when checking out.
  
The last picture was taken at Souvenir City.  The pirate ship facade was cool.
Earlier I posted a color photo taken at the same shop.
 

These pictures were taken either with an iPhone 4s using the Hipstamatic app or a Lumix GF3.  Any cropping or editing was done either wiith Snapseed or CS3.

A few double exposure pictures taken with the Hipstamatic app and post processed with Snapseed.
  

The pictures above and below were taken at Market Square.  Seren and I were hanging out there while Starr took down her art after a successful hanging at The Tomato Head
   

The last picture was taken while I was drinking some coffee in front of the DoubleTree hotel in the Secret City.

Photog at Play

Posted on 6:16 PM by jr cline | 0 comments

Christy, Jesse, and I went to Foley, Gulf Shores, and Fairhope for a variety of reasons....mostly fun!
While there, I played around with camera settings.  Having a child playing with a lighted, flashing pirate sword was a real plus.



  
I tried a few pictures out of a moving car. This is the only one that is marginally interesting.


I can't help but put in a crab picture.  rofl  We got crabs while we were there.
