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.

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.

Along the Blues Trail

22 Comments

The Blues Highway is a road, and more. “Sometimes a road sings. Drive the old Blues Highway—Route 61 between Memphis and Vicksburg—in search of music, and you’ll find it everywhere you turn. Soul, gospel, and R&B spill out of car windows and church doors. Sometimes the music is played on guitars picked with calloused fingers in juke joints tucked under the pine trees. Muddy Waters rode the Blues Highway. So did John Lee Hooker, Bessie Smith, and B.B. King. Elvis knew it, too—his rock-and-roll is as rooted in the delta as a cypress tree in the lowland muck.”

The Holmes Medical Museum is located above the drug store in Baldwin County’s first hospital, which served the community from 1936-1958. Many of the items on display are the original medical artifacts including surgical instruments, operating room machinery and a human skeleton. The interior of the museum is like a time capsule remaining practically unchanged from the time it served as the area’s first hospital. This fascinating museum will definitely take you back in time.

There is nothing to tell
When I wanted to find it, I could not.

 

Nothing happened
When I didn’t want to find it, it appeared.

 

Everything happened

 

Suchness
How far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?
It’s not a problem.
It’s the road to heaven.
Just put your stuff down.
