I decided that pre-processing the image in camera (sharp, contrast, color temp) is better than shooting RAW and fiddling with the conversion. PP in GKON and Snapseed to bring out the ambience and do spot dodging. Slide from 20 years ago.
This is the Rosetta Stone which was translated by Champollion in Paris in 1822. It is in three languages. This was the key to unlocking the meaning of hieroglyphs. Written in 196 BC, the bottom part is in ancient Greek, which was understood, the top Egyptian hieroglyph (unknown) the middle in demotic script. It was rediscovered by the French in 1799, and as they were defeated by the Brits in 1801, it was brought back to London. It weighs 1700 lbs. That's me in the middle of the picture.
This was taken today at Deerfield Beach, Fl. I had finished shooting for the day and was walking back to the beach house when the blimp caught my eye. Luckily I still had the camera in my hand - Digilux 1. A few seconds too late and the blimp would have cleared the building. I took some follow up shots but none of them was as good. Strangely the life guard was not noticed consciously, but my subconcious knew.
