Those diabolical people at Newsvine Photographers thought up another challenge for us shutterbugs. This one involves taking pictures of Main Street, or anyway of one's hometown, and doing something a little bit unusual with them.
I found the other entries so fascinating that I had to dig up some photos of 16th Street in Milwaukee. Sixteenth Street is in an older neighborhood, hence the interesting architectural details. Unfortunately the camera I had at that time was extremely simple and did not enable me to take any zoom images of those roofline details. Natch.
Anyway, the neighborhood has gone through many changes, and at the time the pictures were taken was in the throes of a bit of a revival at the hands of the current Mexican/mixed race inhabitants of said area.
Older, established vendors like the Sanitary Comforter, the George Webb diner, the Archery shop, the musical instrument shop which specialized in accordions (stop that laughing, you bums in the back row!) -- now vie with a Mexican grocery, Novo's Restaurant, a Hispanic-named hair salon, a carniceria (butcher shop), and a low-income health clinic.
I put some of the pictures into montages, and I tossed all of them into a blender and got a GIF that cycles thru all the images at three-quarters of second per image. Then I also chopped up the most interesting photo of a guy on a scaffold painting a sunburst marquee into 16 squares, and put all 16 plus the original whole image into another GIF that cycles thru all of them at the same rate in the first GIF. I hope you enjoy those shows; they are another way to get a slide show without having to make a movie of the photographs, which can be darn tedious to do.
