A quiet golden-hour view at a rest stop: Nice.
Thup! Huh? What the hell…
Oh crap. A vulture dumped a load. … Look at that.
That night, I dreamt I could not wipe that spot out of my mind. … What a nightmare.
Do you dream in color or black and white?

The battery in my Kindle died. … Boredom. Then I saw this fellow sitting on a bench, eating lunch. Do you think he is a steward? I have a hunch he is. I presume we were both being watched by one or two video cameras. I like taking pictures inside terminals. Privacy ain't what it used to be.
If you know the identity of this gentleman, pray tell. I want to give him a signed, artisan-quality print. Since I neglected to ask him to sign a relaeas form, this picture is not for sale.
Now I want a sandwich and chips. Instead, I'll take two Tums and go to bed. Sensible.

Do you remember the phrase "trick photography"? I do. Anyone who came of age south of the digital imaging revolution does. "Trick photography" is the catchall phrase we used to use to descibe a still photograph that was either obviously manipulated or one that beckoned us to suspend our disbelief.
"Photoshop" is now the root of all catch phrases used to described hyper-photorealistic or photosurrealistic photography.
The whiz-bang effects showcased in movies such as Gravity are created by weaving seemingly endless strands of zeros and ones. Computer-generated imagery (CGI) has attained a level of visual sophistication far exceeding anything a movie director could have imagined even back when Star Wars startled audiences nearly forty years ago.
As a kid growing up in the 60s, the1953 movie War of the Worlds scared the s#*t out of me. In its day, it wowed audiences with state-of-the-art special effects. The scene with the street light in the picture above is a tip o' the hat to the menacing cobra-head Martian war machines that appeared in that 1953 flick.

It appears as though this photo was taken fifty years ago. This image oddly resembles a 1960s Kodacolor print.
