The photo editing project is coming to an end. I only have a few more things to do but for the most part, it is done!!! What is left? The photo merge directory where I have to stitch images together such as this one. This is from Feb. 2006 near Climax Mountain in Summit County Colorado.
While going through more of the images today, I got to the hurricane directory and almost done with all the images. These are from Hurricane Rita as I past through Huntsville TX.
These are the huge gas lines at the one gas station that was open and everyone was in a state of panic to get the fuel they had.
Last night the aurora chase was a total bust. Clouds messed it up pretty bad and I ended up wasting my time. Tomorrow looks to be cloudy as well but I might be able to get out and see the auroras if they happen again. It will be a road trip if it happens.
Today I have been working from home and just got a call from another production company wanting to do a Katrina docu. This one sounds like it might be good but its another non profit one that wants stuff dirt cheap. Sorry folks, screen credits don't pay the bills.
Here is another lost image. This is May 4th, 2003 - Kansas Turnpike Tornado Photo.
Another day of manic photo editing here while listening to more NIN and I just found this one.
Trying to edit through 250 gigs worth of scans is a total pain in the ass. But I have got through some of the old tornado stuff and here are a couple images. So what did I edit in the photos? These negs were sitting in a box for up to 10 years in some cases. They are scratched and dirty so I have to go through everything at 12,000 DPI and clean up the scratches. But it is worth it.
This first one is from 2000 over in Wisconsin of all places. It just kept spinning up and trying to put out a funnel before it just died.
One of those great Iowa photos thank makes you say huh?
Is this not like, um yeah. NO SHIT.
Waiting for Tony to photo shop "Roger" on the top of it :-)
Here are some photos of the wild dogs that chased me down while I was out chasing this year. I stopped on the side of the road in South Dakota to get a shot of a dying super cell and then these guys came out of nowhere from the house across the highway. These guys were looking at me like I was their new chew toy and like some crazy horror movie, they kept following me around until I got back in my Jeep after fighting them off and got away with my life...
