M/V O. Nelson Jones at Huntington

 I'm not a perfectionist, but this photo disappointed me. It could have been better, but it wasn't. I tried it in color and black and white.

Not bad, but not what I was hoping for. It happens. From what I hear, it's why the real pro photographers don't turn loose of everything they shoot, because in any instance where you shoot a large number of pictures, some will turn out to be duds. A photojournalist told me he would shoot an entire roll of film in hopes of getting one or two good photos.

This time of year, with spring sunlight but bare trees, makes getting a good boat picture more difficult because of the background. In about four weeks we will have green hills, and that will help immensely. Add to that how I had a couple of camera adjustments wrong, and ... it could have been better.

When I see the boat again next month, I will try again.

M/V John Vaughn

I got my internet back late last week. With everything going on with taking care of storm damage (an effort that will take several weekends), I've fallen behind here.

Anyone interested in a towboat picture? Let's go old school and do it in black and white.

I hope to have more soon. We shall see.

I'll see you in April

 To the loyal readers of this blog (both of you):

The power at my house was out from Feb. 11 to Feb. 26 because of the back-to-back ice storms followed a couple of days later by a nice snowfall. My home internet service is still out, and my provider refuses to give an estimate on when service might be restored.

I hope it's before the first of April. I hope to talk to you before then.
