A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
I really enjoy taking an ordinary photo and seeing what I can do with it in various photo editing modes and in Topaz filters. This photo was taken on I-15 just south of Cedar City UT at a speed of about 80 mph with a canon 7D and telephoto lens. Which do you like or not like?
Another of my favorite fixer-upper sights in Beaver UT. This one is solid brick, brick chimney, one window, one door, modern porch, complete with bales of hay to feed your goat, cow, horse, or whatever. Another rescued photo.
Well Lo and Behold, I found another photo in the archives of the opposite side of above shown fixer upper. Apparently the builder wanted all the windows and doors on one side. Roof maybe could stand minor repairs plus new window glass. Probably available for cheap unless it is a designated historical landmark.
Almost home in the South Salt Lake Valley! I hope you have enjoyed the scenic tour from St. George to Salt Lake. If you are familiar with the road between St. George and Salt Lake, you will see many familiar landmarks. If you are from somewhere else in the country or the world, you will have become acquainted with the rugged terrain between the two places. Except for a few scattered small towns, the trip scenery is mostly of hills, mountains, and prairies. Imagine Brigham Young and others going on this journey by wagon or horseback and taking days to make the trip. Two days after I took this photo, I landed in the hospital with severe vertigo, which has taken months to recover from. To retrace the trip, go to Categories on the right, find I-15 from St. George to Salt Lake, and take the trip again.
