Water Over The Bridge

bridge flooding

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

The 6th hole on the Heritage Shores Golf Course was covered with water following days of rain. The flood is now receding but more rain is predicted.

But this post is not really about the flooding.  It may be a good time to exit.

No, it’s about me running Adobe Photoshop 7.0 on my Linux box.  Over 95  percent of my computing activities are done in this operating system, not Windows.  If I didn’t need to run Adobe Photoshop off the cloud, there would be no need for Windows at all. And Apple Computer OS, I dislike even more than Windows.

Unfortunately, my heavy duty Photoshop work binds me to an Adobe cloud subscription which doesn’t run on CodeWeaver’s CrossOver for Linux.  At this  time, however, I can do what’s needed for my blog with an old version of Photoshop which run on Linux.

BY GEORGE, “The Father of Our Country”

Copy of a play slide by E.W. Faircloth

BY George, “He’s the Father of Our Country” a play written by Joe Weikel, Sponsored by the Heritage Shores Civil War Round Table. Cast: Joe Weikel, Bill Zemits, Marge Lynch, Jan Pfeifer and Ken Pfeifer.

The play had a slideshow running in the background.  Above was one of the slides.  I had been asked to take video of the play, nothing fancy just one camera.  It was another one of my community service assignments(FREE.) So, I set up a video camera and let it roll for the entirety of the play, no zooming, no panning, no external mikes and no assistants.  Who can afford assistants at my rates?

I decided to shoot some stills for my blog, Facebook page and our community newsletter. The stills I shot will be incorporated in the final video given to the playwright.

Think about it.  One video showing the  same scene for about an hour could be brutal.  The stills will have break up the monotony.  The playwright is only concerned about his dialog and want to give something to his grandchildren.

That’s a noble idea but it could be like forcing them to watch his vacation pictures.  I promised him I’d help and that’s what I’m doing.

As Sharp As A Tack

Photography by Robert J. Laramie

Bob, aka Robert J. Laramie is one fine photographer, and a good guy.  He allowed me to post one of his images here.  He traded in his Nikon equipment and is now using  Olympus gear.

Bob did have doubts when he traded his Nikons in for Olympus but has not regretted it one bit. Lenses are sharp edge to edge with great contrast. The cameras allow so much freedom to customize to individual shooting needs.

The image above is, using an old phrase, as sharp as a tack.

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

May 13th, 2018

 

I put my headphones on while exercising on treadmills.  Since I enjoy dancing Salsa and Bachata so much, that’s the music I listen to while working out.  Keeping time with the music makes it even more fun.  However, my wife thinks I should not “dance” while on a treadmill.  She may be right but it’s hard hearing Leslie Grace singing “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? ”  and not keep on beat.

Here’s a photograph taken in beautiful downtown Westmont NJ by Jon Falk.

So now we know a place where we can get cage free vegan beers on tap.

I’ve got friends who get off( does that phrase date me?) on beer.  They get all hopped  up tasting new brews.
