Desperately trying to find something edible by a nine year old…

Day 257

More Nevada City!

Toots got to do a lot of things.  She carried water, delivered a package from the post office and learned some games.

day1625701

This is one I only tried once many years ago, without much success.

day1625702

Like the pogo stick, she seems to have master the hoop and stick without any problem at all!

day1625703

Okay, these two are the same photo with different crops.

Day 256

More Nevada City!

Montana’s Oldest School!  And a shadowy self portrait.

day1625601

Kids at recess.  And a half self portrait.

day1625602

This is a panorama from two photos.  I was using an extreme wide-angle and didn’t line things up quite right.  It turned out okay though.  I rather like it!

Day 255

More Nevada City!

These are two panoramas from the Livery Stable where they keep lots of various wagons.  I used the same two photos to make both panoramas, but for the first one I had to manually line up the post and beams just to the left of the water barrel near the middle.  In addition to the angled beam that is straighten realize, the railing behind the the first position the right doesn’t line up.

(Click a couple of times to enlarge; BACK to return here!)

day1625501b

In the second one I lined up the rear post and the railing that didn’t line up in the photo above.  My copy of PS Elements, which is getting a bit old, could not stitch the panorama together on its own.  I had to line the two photos up for it, then it did the magic part and smoothed it all out.

day1625501a

This second one is a lot nicer.  Other than the angled beam…

Day 254

More Nevada City!

A quilting table outside of a lived in, power and water free house.  Water comes in buckets from the well. Toots even got to carry some!

day1625401

A period correct firearms demonstration.  A percussion capped Springfield, I believe.  Just ignore those power lines behind the fence…

day1625402

Shooting the shooting!

day1625403

From top to bottom, a 12gauge coach gun (muzzleloading), an 1858 Remington can and ball (muscle loading), the afore mentioned Springfield, and a flintlock rifle (a Springfield?), also a muscle loader.

day1625404

Toots had some big news!

day1625405

She made her own doll!

Day 253

More Nevada City!

Main street.

day1625301

Looking into the Saddlery.  Lots of the buildings are open and full of period items!

day1625302

The Barber Shop and Saddlery.  Beyond that is a sod roof shack.

day1625303

Inside the Barber Shop.

day1625304

A detail.

day1625305

Shooting the Blacksmith’s.

day1625306

Inside.  This is a two photo panorama, with perspective correction…

day1625307

Some things never change.

day1625308

Shooting one of the “locals”.  We found out that they are all volunteers, who come down to spend a week or weekend living the old life.  We also found out since they are volunteers, it is polite to ask them before you take their photos!  So an apology to anyone we photographed without asking.

Day 252

Back to Nevada City!

A couple of my Milky Way photos.

day1625201

I think my sensor is getting old in my big camera.  There is getting to be lots of red dots that aren’t there!  At least on the long exposure in the dark photos….
