Art glass in a gallery window across the street from the Galveston Railway Museum …
One of the displays in one of the museum railway cars … there was a plexiglass barrier between me and Mr. Man here, so I held the camera about where I thought it needed to be and *click* … It took me three tries, but I’m quite pleased with this one.
I actually had someone ask me if I Photoshopped this one … nope! I got lucky that these three birds were so cooperative. All the editing done on my photos (for this time, at least) is done with iPhoto on my Mac. Some day I hope to get Photoshop Elements. I hear you can do some awesome things with it.
I used to park right near this corner when I worked at the Moody Medical Library in Galveston. The sign’s still there … a little more rusty than it was twenty years ago, but I still like it.

lol… here I am messaging you about photoshop and you’re wanting it. lol No, seriously I do appreciate what photoshop can do BUT I believe you have to be able to take good pictures first and just enhance them, not create them out of nothing. You have a great eye and you won’t be making something out of nothing. So you have my permission to use it. lol (like you need it?… you know I am the all-powerful here….. not!). I like the ice cream shop sign.I have space men in my attic today (putting in insulation etc) I feel like I’m in Roswell.
@pottermom – Trust me – I know what you mean. I clung adamantly to the belief that only film photographers were REAL photographers because of the ability to manipulate digital images. I mean, seriously … with computer aided graphics in movies (like the ship in Titanic) and photoshopped images … can we really believe anything we view is REAL anymore? (laughing … kind of …) It took me quite a while to warm up to the idea of digital photography. And I totally understand what you’re saying. I think I’m somewhat open to trying Photoshop because the Elements program is only $99 and so not that expensive to experiment with. But I’m pretty certain that I would not utilize it to its full capacity, just because of the purist streak in me. 🙂
I love the pics….especially the one of the gulls on the lamps. Neat. We have been to the train museum once as a field trip when we were homeschooling. That was probably *thinking* 17 or 18 years ago.
We went to the train museum over 20 years ago. Galveston is so cool. I haven’t been there since before we moved away (Dec. 1989 was the last time, for Dickens on The Strand).
Great photos – maybe you could teach Jerk a few things!
