“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” – Ansel Adams
By 2022 WordPress developers will no longer support the classic WordPress editor. Instead, users of this software will be forced to use what is known as the Gutenberg Block Editor. If you have read a few of my recent posts you recognize a few changes such as using two columns instead of one. Double columns are easier to read as one does not need to track across a long page. If reading on a tablet or small screen, this is not an issue. However, I work on a 27″ monitor so multiple columns comes in handy.
While Gutenberg is more difficult to use, it is also more powerful in that it permits greater flexibility for the creator or designer of blog posts and pages.
While traversing the northwest corner of Oregon some years ago, we were in search of Ghost Towns. Oregon has at least 200 such towns, but it does take some searching and research to find them. Thus far my wife and I have discovered
and photographed approximately 1/4 of these so called ghost towns. From time to time I’ve posted images made of these structures. In the grave marker above, check out the epitaph. One needs to do extensive research to locate sites such as this one.
The first image above is of an old garage located a few yards from the main road just to the right of the photograph. The road was likely dirt when this structure was built. Based on the tire wheels one can conclude we are looking back to the late 1920s or early 1930s when this shop was operational.
To enhance the photo I used Luminar AI, a powerful program for tweaking or enhancing photographs. The original image was made using the RAW format. Camera settings were: Focal Length 8.8mm, ISO 125, f/5.6 at 1/500 s. One attraction of this structure is the sway back as the building settles into old age.
