Travelling Home Blues

We took a road trip the past week and a half going to RI for a milestone event —  grandson Bobby’s kindergarten graduation. Along the way, we spent time visiting other family in NJ and PA. Our final stop was in Altoona, PA. WHY? to visit RR-related places, of course. (Grenville will post about those adventures later.)mountain collageBeing the passenger gave me with some great photo opportunities as the Allegheny Mountains passed into view. The vistas were very impressive we travelled from RI to PA on a good travel day.

Everyone gets the blues, BUT the trip home was really a downer as the weather was NOT as cooperative.blue travel0618 (3)blue mountain collageCrossing over the Bay Bridge near Annapolis,MD, visibility was extremely poor as Grenville maneuvered through torrential downpours.blue bridge collage2These photos are all SOOC (straight out of camera) WITH a couple of alterations: the light setting was on tungsten (from earlier shooting indoors) and a vivid color setting was used. The results looked interesting “as is” and NO changes were made using photo editing software.

The photos turned out good! We bought our son-in-law one of those same cameras for Christmas a few years back.

I suggest changing the camera's color balance so you can title the next post "Feeling in the Pink." Not sure what I think of the blues.

I don't like that blue tone in photos as You know since that's what I get all winter :-) But I do like the photos :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.

I think the wacky white balance worked in your favor this time. :)

Oh, now you've done it... I am homesick for the mountains. I wonder when I will ever get there again. Guess I need an RV to take Hadji with me.
