In the early morning rain, with a dollar in my hand
With an aching in my heart and my pockets full of sand
I’m a long way from home, and I miss my loved one so
In the early morning rain with no place to go
Out on runway number nine, big 707 set to go
But I’m stuck here on the ground where the cold winds blow
Well the liquor tasted good and the women were all fast
There she goes my friend, o she’s rolling now at last
Here the mighty engines roar, see the silver bird on high
She’s away and westward bound, high above the clouds she’ll fly
Where the early rain don’t fall and the sun always shines
She’ll be flying o’er my home in about three hours time
This old airport’s got me down, it’s no earthly use to me
Cause I’m stuck here on the ground, cold and drunk as I might be
You can’t jump a jet plane like you can a freight train
So I’d best be on my way in the early morning rain
Still working with some post-processes. I took this photo at The Village in FL in 2008. Just playing around with some of the Adobe techniques. These two guys look like they’re reliving their youth a bit.
This is the Rod and Reel pier on Anna Maria Island. Snapped this past August and then I played around with HDR technique.
The temperature here in Florida is beginning to come down just a bit. It was around 85 degrees this afternoon. This photo was taken this summer on Anna Maria Island – these two chairs – gazing out over the beautiful water toward the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
For reference, these two chairs are on the very sandy tip at the bottom of the island in the photo below. As you can see, this is a magical place. Skip Disney and come visit sometime – you won’t regret it.
I’ve been practicing some post-processes on selected photos lately. Getting instruction from all the fine folks out there who take award-winning shots of just about anything. I made some mods to the vintage Porsche that I post a few weeks ago. I think I got some decent results. But I need to get rid of the car in the background. As ADG would say — Onward!
I’m doing a photo assignment at Scott Thomas’ blog
. The topic is WATER.
I chose this photo because I thought (ready for this) the water was wetter! If you can imagine such a thing. I hope the photo shows what I mean.
I had my camera out today and went cruising around the city of Winter Park. Stopped in a few places, had some lunch. This one particular spot gave me pause. I snapped quite a few photos in the area.
