Caswell County Matinee – 2 pics

Traveling home from Camp Cherokee Scout Reservation a few weeks ago, the sky put on the most spectacular show.  There was drama, suspense, and beauty. It was about 30 minutes before sunset as a passing thunderstorm gave way to a beautiful rainbow and cloud formations.  Here are a few of the images I captured while traveling on Hwy 150.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I’ve been unable to post for several weeks; its good to be back at it.  Click on an image to view a higher resolution image from my portfolio site.

Abandoned Warehouse – 2 pics

This abandoned warehouse sits adjacent to an old railroad track in Albemarle, NC.  The location is adjacent to the large grain silos featured in an earlier post.  Perhaps this warehouse was once used to store and load grain for rail shipment.

After my usual post processing to emulate Agfa APX 100 b&w film stock, I decided to try something new by applying a subtle sepia tone to each image.  The original color image featured an impressive variety of rust colors ranging from yellows, to oranges, to reds.  So, in the final processing step, I added back a small amount of color (in select areas) to the subtle sepia version.  This final idea came to me in the shower this morning.  I am pleased with the results and perhaps a bit cleaner too; hope you like it as well.
