Re-Worked Images …

Lonesome Highway 1_SFW_9 9 14

This is the original scan of a 35mm Kodachrome transparency that my father had made back in 1954 or 55, on one of his trips out west to visit his sister.  She was an RN who worked in Los Angeles at the Cedars of Sinai Hospital.  I have no idea where this stretch of road is, but I have often wondered.  Sometime in the future I hope to do a photobook of his images from the trips that he made out west in the 1950’s and 60’s.  This is one that I titled ” Road To Nowhere “, however that can always change as usual for me.  I just thought it would make an interesting cover for a book.  Very seldom do I ever post the original scan … I just thought that I would for reference sake.  The next one is the re-worked  image where I have added a texture matte / screen to the image.  I still might change the color to make it look more like a tinted image.  The judge is still out on that one.  He is the re-worked image …

The texture screen is very subtle and does not seem to show up that well once I resize and reduce the image quality for internet usage.  You do know that if you click on any of the images on this site ( or the ones over on my father’s site that I created ) that the image will open up on a new page by itself and I am fairly sure that you can enlarge the image.  This image should be over on my father’s photography blog that I have, but some people that I talk to do not know about the two.  There is a link to it on the right-hand side of the page, but apparently a lot of people either do not know about the link or do not want to click on the link not knowing where it might take them or to what kind of link it is.  I can understand that … I have started to print some of these images to get back into selling some.  It has been so long that I have sold anything off of either site  that I have almost stopped mentioning it altogether.  I have some other photos from Graceland, Memphis and North Mississippi that I have ready to go and will post in the near future.  Also, I have some casual senior girl images that I plan on posting just to remind the mother’s that I do all types of photography and not just head and shoulder photos for the yearbook etc.  Thanks for looking and please let me hear from you if you have any questions or comments … Frank
