Hillman, abandoned.

Posted on Updated on

Found this on the property where I cut my Christmas trees. The owner is somewhat of a collector, but unfortunately this one was beyond his abilities to repair.

      Absolutely! But I am working on another story idea tonight. Feel free to write a poem and use this photo 🙂

    I love finds like that. B&W is perfect for this type of subject, and I’m liking HDR for these old relics too.

      I’ve never done HDR…must look it up 🙂 I loved the color photo, but for some reason it seemed as though something was missing from the photo when it was in color. I took the color away and was much happier with the result! Thank you!!

        I highly recommend Nik’s HDR Efex Pro 2 for HDR processing. You can go from very realistic to “oh my eyes hurt.” Whatever your style may be. Check it out here, http://www.niksoftware.com/index/usa/entry.php?disc_id=JSINON and download the free trial. If you do want to try it out, I recommend you shoot some bracketed exposures first as the trial is only 15 days long. That way you’re not wasting any trial time before you’ve even got images to play with.

        By the way, if you like black and white, check out their Silver Efex Pro 2, you’ll love it!

    Great photo, but the thing I’m taking away from this is, you already cut your tree? Feels early, but maybe the cold-to-mild weather I’ve had on the east coast is screwing with my head.

      Hahahaha! I usually get my tree the weekend after Thanksgiving, and it stays up well into January 🙂 It has been mild in the midwest, too, and no snow makes it hard to decorate for the holidays. But I manage, anyway 😉

        Wow! It lasts over a month?!? I gotta tell my old man he’s been doing something wrong all these years. He’s a two weeks before Christmas through January 6th Christmas tree kinda guy.

        LOL – yes, usually, but with the drought this year, I don’t expect it to last as long. The only trick I use, and I don’t know if it actually helps the tree last longer, is putting 7up in the bowl as soon after I’ve made a fresh cut on the bottom as possible 🙂 I put about half the 2 liter bottle in right away, then after the tree has taken a ‘drink’, I put the rest in…then I follow up with water.

    That is a weird trick. I will make a mental note. Thanks!
