A Trip Back in Time

This camera image was taken with my very first camera which was purchased in the year 2000. The Nikon Coolpix 950 featured an unusual swivel lens and had a maximum resolution of 1600×1200 which was considered a lot of megapixels in its day. I’ve since purchased several other cameras including expensive DSLRs, but this little camera provided me with the most pleasure.

Re: A Trip Back in Time

John,
I like the composition on this one! I had the CoolPix 990. One nice camera for the day. I had it converted to a dedicated IR camera and still use it occasionally.

Looked at your website, you are a multi-talented man. Love your art!

Re: A Trip Back in Time

Thank you for the compliments, Rich. I am just a jack of all, and master of none. I find myself doing less photography due to joint problems than I would like these days. The barn scene is located on a back road just south of the Hagerman Wildlife Preserve in North Texas. It was a convenient and an excellent subject on the way to the preserve. Here is the original in color and another shot on a foggy morning.

Re: A Trip Back in Time

The color one is good too but I prefer the B&W as it gives a mood to it. The foggy one is the best in my humble opinion (IMHO).

I like that you kept going back to the scene. I did that for a lone tree on the prairie here and finally got what I wanted. Took a couple of years.

John, my pick is your original in colour, it is alive and literally sings with crisp vibrant clarity.

Re: A Trip Back in Time

All are outstanding, but I too lean towards the full color original.

The shape of the barn somehow evokes thoughts of Egyptian structures. Anyone else sense that?

Re: A Trip Back in Time

This is the image that caught my eye as I was driving down the back road, a glorious sunup over a barn which included a windmill. It wasn’t a cool old wooden barn, but the scene had good possibilities, none the less. As all photographers do, we must frame the scene and adjust for distractions and such. The fence was a barrier that limited my approach and the overhead wires and road were, I thought, unwanted distractions. I wound up zooming in with the camera which took the road out of the frame, but unfortunately took the cattle out as well. Choices, choices! In the final edit frame there was in the upper left corner a small section of overhead wire. Most photographers edit out the wires, so I felt little guilt in doing that also. As it was early dawn and fairly dark I decided that the fence was not a distraction. Thank you for your kind comments, I really appreciate them very much.
