Roosters of Luckenbach   2 comments

It was surely made famous by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson in „Luckenbach Texas / Back to the Basics of Love„, but what would Luckenbach/TX be without it’s roosters? The tourists come and go, the bands change, but the roosters stay!

Yesterday in nearby Comfort/TX I saw this modern Tesla being charged in front of the 1880 Faust Hotel:

To me it looked as if this charging-station was provided by the hotel. That would be some service, wouldn’t it?

She’s long gone from us – or from our cousin in Denver, rather – but we still remember her fondly:

Old and new – especially with the old mirrored in the new – present a very interesting contrast in St. Louis/Missouri:

St. Louis/MO Bridges – Continued   14 comments

It’s quite a while since I last published any of my pictures from our „RailTrailsRoadTrip“ in October last year. So I really need to continue. Here’s a picture of Eads Bridge. We passed underneath it on our 2-hour cruise of the waterfron to St. Louis.

This picture has been edited, I must admit, both with ACDSee Ultimate 9 [for a light equalizer] and with easyHDR [for enhancement of details], but I think this brings out the fine metal structure very well, even if it does look a tad artificial.

Lower Slaughter, GB   10 comments

For my first picture here after my pause in blogging, I’ve chosen one that I took in 2013 in the Cotswolds, in the picturesque little village of Lower Slaughter:

The original photo has been (slightly) enhanced with EasyHDR, a programme I have lately come to like.
