Nice to be Back

June 11, 2020

I went to the blood drive at Cantigny this afternoon, and after the snacks, took a short walk around since I haven't been able to visit for a looonnnnggg time.

I've always wanted this view, but the fountain is usually running (which I don't like).  Today, I was able to get the shot.  Alas, there's not much color.  Since Cantigny has been been shut down, they don't have much planted.  So, monochrome worked for me here.

By the way, Cantigny is reopening to the public on the 15th, subject to a lot of coronavirus restrictions.

Saucy Wench (redux)
This is another old Bristol picture that was worth revisiting.  The original is here

The original was a disappointment to's WAY over-processed.  This new one is still over-processed, but I did it a little more gently.  It helps to have better tools than I had in 2009. Behold the problem with on-camera flash, among other issues.

A redux of this picture

My local camera club had a contest last night and this picture fit the theme.  I decided to oldify it as opposed to entering the original.  Didn't win, but I still got a post out of it. 

Back then, the original color version got some love from the good folks at Cantigny.  They made a couple of light pole banners out of it.  After the season, they took them down, and I got one which now hangs in my lair.
