I was sick as a dog for a bit but didn't want to hold things up...ha!
So, the lighting and these crazy cacti caught my eye. They've since grown to about twice this size in the same tiny pots. I'll have to post another shot.
MartinB was kind enough to meet me at a nearby pub for the handover and even more kind to allow me to make this portrait.
I was sure that my attempt to correct for parallax from the close distance had failed and that half of Martin would be out of the frame. What a pleasant surprise to see this image in focus and in frame.
I'm not sure if this is mine - there's the problem of number 11, which I know is not mine (looks vaguely familiar - I bet it's Chris', somewhere around Chattanooga, TN), between this and #10. Did the images get posted out of reverse order? This does very much look like the road out to Lake O.
Guilty as charged. I'm #11 and #13 on the Canon. I was wondering about the order too. I'll go back and clarify, as they're from different parts of the state.
Has it really been 2.5+ months since I've logged in? Apparently so. My life has been so chaotic, I've not logged in here til tonight. I haven't been in my darkroom in months. I'm hoping to change that Sunday night! In the meantime, I'm tipping two fingers of Maker's Mark to not letting the bastards grind me down.
Count me in for Camera #9 (if it isn't too late) and all future projects whenever, wherever. My email still works, even when I'm not on here.

Abandoned apartment building near downtown Chattanooga, TN (right by the baseball field).
I see this deteriorating landmark from the highway every time I drive into town. It was interesting to take a detour and pull up in front of it. I was standing on the back of my truck bed cover to get this shot over the chain link fence (that you can't see below the photo).
A few weeks before the photo of crumbling apartments in Chattanooga, I was on the other side of the state. I don't recall what two small towns I was between, but I pulled off the road and went for a short hike.
This is one view of a small part of the Hatchie River in western Tennessee.
