I finally finished the roll of film in my Nikon and found the time to develop and scan the negatives this week. Yay!
You never know when or where you’re likely to find your next reflections image. I was out riding my bicycle about 4 weeks ago when I spotted this monster machine (aka tractor) parked alongside a cornfield. I hit the brakes, jumped off my bike and shot this sequence.
I was attracted by the sheer size and the neat forms of this tractor. When I got up close to get a tight shot, I knew I’d have some good reflections. I wasn’t disappointed when I scanned the negs the other day.
Here’s a shot of the entire monster machine. I’d love to take this bad boy out for a spin.
Now you see the tractor in context. A couple of years back I was riding along on my bike when I saw a combine working in a cornfield. That was truly awesome. This guy isn’t working the field but if it had been I would never have gotten these images.
One of the things that’s kept me busy this past month has been upgrading the OS on my Linux computer and installing and testing the software I needed. Oh, I had Linux Mint 9 up and running within the first hour but I’ve been searching for just the right software and I’ve found what I needed.
I’ve been wanting to migrate my film scanning from my Windows box and I finally did it last week. My scanner and VueScan both work flawlessly! That and my computer adventures are other stories for other posts. I’m glad to be back.
