Old Texaco Station
This was taken in Lynchburg, TN. The old station has been turned into a visitor's center. I will stop at every opportunity for an old station (especially Texaco), old barn, country church, or old vehicle 'rusting in peace'.
Believe it or not, I've actually been 'cooling my jets' since I arrived in Orr yesterday. I haven't left the campground, although I'm planning a trip 'into town' (about 7 miles) in a bit to check out the area.
Other than being a very windy day, it's a nice summer day here. Some clouds are rolling in, but it's low humidity and 70 degrees. I have windows and the door open in the RV and the AC is off. Hope I can bring some of this weather home with me!
I spent the morning reviewing images I've taken with my newest lens - a fisheye - during the trip. I did some basic editing. A few are HDR merge of 3 images to get the complete range of light. All were taken with my Canon camera and the 8-15mm lens.
It's quite a different perspective and not a lens I can use in every situation, but it gives a unique view. I've discovered I have to be careful if I'm handholding and moving closer to get the foreground very close. I've almost run into buildings or objects as I get in close (which is what you have to

do with this type lens).
Hope you enjoy this brief recap of my stops so far.
