Last On Card – October 2021

The Last Photo

… on the card in my Nikon D800 taken in October 2021.

I have seen the bushboys world challenge many times, always chuckled at many of the contributions, but have not before participated. Since I was about to transfer what photos I had not imported before, I decided to jump in.

Of course, there was no way that I would show an unedited photo, however for this occasion here is a minimally processed version of the last photo from October 2021. Turns out this was taken on the 25th. It is full frame.

The subject here is a Joro spider. One of many from around our house. These creatures are new to Georgia, supposedly they came in on or in a shipping container from the Far East. They are now spreading like wildfire.

For good measure here is the first frame from November, taken on the 1st. It too shows a Joro spider. A bit closer, with the web showing a bit better. Again, this is full frame. It is another of our Joro spider friends.

And here a cropped version. A bit more how I like to show my photos.

Thank you bushboy for this cute challenge.

Challenge 2020 – 10

Parthenon

This final installment of the Challenge 2020 series takes us to the Parthenon. Not the one in Athens, Greece, but the full size replicate in Nashville. Tennessee.

Parthenon – Nashville

This last photo tells you why there are no photos from the inside here. Maybe next time.

Challenge 2020 – 9

Cumberland Pass

Challenge 9 takes us to the historic Cumberland Pass, at the place where Tennessee, Virginia, and Kentucky meet. Here in this title image we are looking down at the town of Cumberland Pass from the Pinnacle Overlook. You can see from the rocks in the foreground that this is not an aerial photo.

Look closer at the town:

The pass and the town have been reshaped by history again and again. The pioneers came on horseback and with wagons. They laboriously built a road to open the way to the west. This became the legendary gateway across the Appalachian mountains. Then came the railroad and the tunnel builders. The railroad was updated and rerouted. You can see the modern tracks on the right in the image. If you look closely you will see shadow on the main street – apparently from a box. That is a covered bridge on an earlier railway right-of-way. Let you eye follow to the right and you will see another covered bridge. Let’s visit that one.

In the distance beyond the town, in the top image, you can see the modern interstate highway. Nowadays we are oblivious of the pain and travails the folks in earlier days had to go through.

It is just a quick dash through the modern tunnel, hardly any need to slow down.

On top of the “gap”, the renowned pass, looked like this a hundred years ago. We see it on a trail-side sign.

The old road has been turned over to nature. There is just a hiking path there now, almost the way it was in the pioneer days.
