Troubled Bridge V
Another image from the removal of the railway span of Victoria’s Johnson Street Bridge a few weeks ago. This picture was taken several weeks ago when I went to the bridge with my then ‘new’ wide-angle lens to document more of what is left of the bridge, and its condition at that time.
I have yet to work all the images I took up into a post as it was a bright and pretty harsh day, and the images need quite a bit of work (made worse by not getting the manual exposure quite right – I must learn how to read the exposure histogram better since the screen view in sunlight can be deceiving). These two images were some processing experiments that are readily accessible on my computer. Other ones in the bridge series can be seen at this link.
The reason that accessibility matters is that I am working in a seriously limited way while backup software runs – no way can I work on images right now, and only intermittently can I even type in the WP editor box. My patience is sorely tried, what there is of it. The MS Windows 7 back up software is hopeless, even though I have installed a hotfix for it. So, I am about to go shopping for an alternative. Nine hours of backing up 500gig and I am sitting at 33% complete with the last 2% taking 2.5 hours and a nearly unusable computer due to system demands. If anyone has a good alternative for Windows 7 backups I would love to hear about them.
