Lonesome Highway 1  _ Better_9 Sept 14 _Overlay _ SFW

One more old Kodachrome image that I had scanned and put an over-lay texture over the image to give it more of an aged effect.  I also like the texture that is created on the image, but some of this is lost when I re-size and reduce an image for the web.  I wrote a post on my blog earlier today reminding my few readers that I also have this blog and to come over and check out the work that I have posted.  I get ten times as many viewers on this blog as I do on my personal blog, but I just wanted to make my viewers aware of all that I have posted on this site.  I have several things that I am working on for this site and one is adding a textured over-lay to some of the images that I thought might benefit from it.  The other I will share with you later when I get some images completed.

The next two things are a couple of web sites that I recently just ran across … the first shows you a list of old images and the background is Google Maps and you over-lay the image over it.  Here is a link to the site.  Type in ” Pensacola Florida ” and go to downtown Pensacola, find the corner of Palafox and Main Street where the new Artisan Apartment building is being built and find the old photo of Pensacola Restaurant Supply and lay it over the corner to see what it looked like back in the 1970’s … pretty neat effect if you ask me.  There is a list of of old buildings that you can do this to.  I uploaded one of my old Sacred Heart Hospital image with the nuns out front, but it said that there was no Google street-level view for the block between DeSoto and Brainerd Streets, which I knew was wrong.  Maybe I did something wrong, but go check it out.  The other site is The Florida Past project and a link is here.  I have not gone all through it but what little I did see was interesting.  Contact me with any comments or questions and let me hear from you … Thanks for looking … Frank

PS – I title all of my images, for what it is worth, and the one above is ” Road To No Where ” or maybe it is ” Lonesome Road To No Where ” or it could be ” On The Road With The Drifting Cowboys “.  Take your pick … not a car or a person in site.  How many of you can remember that canvas water bag that traveler’s used to hang off of their radiator for when your car over-heated in the desert?  And how about driving across the desert at night since it was too hot during the day?  I can remember sitting in the back seat of this old Buick by myself with the window rolled down, staring out the window looking out at the stars when all of a sudden a UFO comes flying by … I can see them like it was yesterday …  at least I thought it was a UFO and I was too young back then to even know what a UFO was back then.  More on that later … Thanks for stopping by …
