Fisheye Black and White

I like the fisheye lens from Olloclip.  

These pictures were taken by me at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum with the Hipstamatic app, and the Olloclip fisheye lens on an iPhone 6.

What’s Happening in June

2 Comments

What’s going on at World HQ this month? 
1. Lots of service work:
* Air conditioner service 
* Refrigerator service 
* Engine oil and filter change 
* Onan propane generator oil and filter change
* Chassis lube
* Gas filter replaced
* Check brakes, shocks, steering stabilizer, and air dryer
* New radio
* Check house batteries 
* Fix steps 
* Maybe a new TV 📺 
The one in the bedroom has been broken for a while now.

2. Gunter Hill Campground 
This is one of my favorite campgrounds. It’s in the River Region of Alabama just outside Montgomery. Most the lots are wooded. As an added bonus, since it’s a COE campground I can stay for half price. 

3. Back in Alabama – sigh

4. Visiting with some good friends and family 

5. A beginner kayak?  
I have been shopping for a kayak. I’ve looked at inflatables, kayaks that come in sections, regular kayaks, one person, two person, sit on, sit in, life vests, paddles, and a multitude of ways to carry a kayak with a soft top Jeep or motorhome.  
I was hobbling around Gunter Hill and there was the 8′ DayLife sit on kayak. The reviews indicate it is a good beginner’s kayak.  Any suggestions?

Alabama Politics 

6 Comments

Normally I don’t blog about politics but an article about the Alabamafication of America struck a nerve. To read the article click on the link below. 

Alabama politics don’t play well on the big stage.  The Alabamafication of America is a scary thing.  If you aren’t a native of Alabama you may not understand the deeply entrenched corruption that controls this state. 

Sweet Home Alabama: “For such a long time, the corruption of Alabama politics was something we thought we had under control, or at least, contained. Our graft, buffoonery and ineptitude had become a Dixie Ouroboros, too busy eating itself to hurt anyone else. ” ~ Kyle Whitmore

It’s not contained any longer. It has moved to the big leagues.

I spent hours wandering the trainyard at The Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera Alabama.  I’ve been here many times and it’s a unique joy to take photographs at the museum. There is always something new to shoot.  
I miss seeing the caboose at the end of the train.  A train crossed the road in front of me yesterday.  It’s just not the same with just the light on the last car.  It makes me happy to see places like the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum preserving cabooses for future generations to enjoy. 
One of the many cool things here is riding the train. You can purchase tickets to ride in an open car or an enclosed car.   There are also tickets available to ride in the caboose or in the engine.  I think I should take advantage of one or both of those options while I am here.

Mt Zion Cemetry

Across the road from the Mt. Zion AME church is an ancient cemetery. Many of the grave markers are long gone. There are a lot of graves there. You can see dips in the ground where the graves sank.

The Alabamas were part of the confederacy of Creeks, now known as the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. They played a pivotal role in the early colonial and Revolutionary-era history of North America.

A short walk from the RV, at the top of the putt putt golf course, there is a bubbling fountain.  Just before dark one evening I walked up there and took these four pictures.  I could have stood there a long time.  No two images are the same.
