I am finally back online and have some catching up to do. As mentioned previously, I want to go back and spend some time working on a series of photographs I took at the East Broad Top RR. These were taken in the fall of 1973.

Tangier Island – Photo for Dec. 11
I took some photos of Tangier Island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay with one of my early digital cameras in 2002. I have taken this opportunity to revisit these files. I found that they are by today’s standards electronically noisy, so I tried converting this to black and white and using the noise to appear more like traditional film grain. I am late on posting daily photos at this time because of interruptions in my internet service.
Activity Off of Hilton Head Island – Photo(s) for Dec. 10
These photos were taken off of our home on Hilton Head Island, SC. The activity is in preparation of some beach regeneration down from us on the northeast point of the island.
Union Pacific Big Boy, Steamtown – Photo for Dec. 9
I am a day late for posting a photo for Dec. 9, but had a problem with our internet service. This photograph was taken a couple of years ago with one of my old Nikon film cameras. It was shot in color and converted to black and white. The sky is digital and was taken on Hilton Head Island, SC. Since this picture was taken the engine has been repainted.
Hunting Island Lighthouse – Photo(s) for Dec. 8
I had posted these on another site, but wanted them included here. They were taken in available light with my little four thirds Olympus.
Gettysburg Cyclorama, Reflective Study No. 3 – Photo for Dec. 7
Gettysburg Cyclorama, Reflective Study No. 2 – Photo for Dec. 6
I am really enjoying playing with this series of photos, so am posting another today.
Gettysburg Cyclorama, Reflective Study No. 1 – Photo for Dec. 5
I am back at working on the studies I have been doing of Neutra’s, Gettysburg Cyclorama. This is again a digital infrared photo.
Joe and Miss Brenda Joyce – Photo(s) for Dec. 4
The third member of the crew of the Miss Brenda Joyce is pictured here. Joe is working below deck shoveling ice and getting the boat ready to go shrimping. And the second photo is the crew taking a break before leaving the dock.
Miss Brenda Joyce – Photo for Dec. 3
The story of Steve Tate who has been the subject of the last few posts would not be complete without a photo of the Miss Brenda Joyce. She is a classic shrimp boat and I hope as I am typing this, she is out catching lots of shrimp.
