Check Out New Photos From Bhutan, India, and Nepal https://www.tomcarrollphotography.com/blog/2014/4/check-out-new-photos-from-bhutan-india-and-nepal From mid-January to mid-February this year, I had the opportunity to visit Bhutan, India, and Nepal for about a month and took a few pictures along the way.  I have posted selected photos from the three Central Asian countries in three different photo galleries (one for each country) in the International Travel Group on my web site: http://www.TomCarrollPhotography.com

Below I have included one photograph from each of the three photo galleries (i.e., Bhutan, India, and Nepal) for your viewing pleasure.  Click on each of the photos below and you will be whisked away to the complete photo gallery and able to view all the country-specific photographs for the selected gallery.

I Just Flat Like It! https://www.tomcarrollphotography.com/blog/2013/3/just-flat-like-it I just flat like this photography!  The major upper-left / lower-right diagonal contrasted with the minor upper-right / lower - left diagonal generates interest.  The detail trips my trigger.  The colors are subtle but impactful.  The detail in the white—the contrast between the white and black is really nifty --- in my view.  What is your view?  Inquiring minds need to know.

Badlands National Park, South Dakota — Revisited https://www.tomcarrollphotography.com/blog/2013/3/badlands-national-park-south-dakota-revisited The photos in this gallery were taken in June, 2008, but were only recently reprocessed and posted.  The hard light at sunset sliding under an impending thunderstorm makes for dramatic lighting --- and, just so you know, so dramatic that the colors and saturations were, for the most part, not cooked in the kitchen.  Some of the "best light" I have ever seen ---

Choo-Choo Trains https://www.tomcarrollphotography.com/blog/2013/2/choo-choo-trains The N.C. Transportation Museum is located in Salisbury, NC, on the site of what was once Southern Railway Company's largest steam locomotive servicing facility. J.P. Morgan, Southern's owner, chose the site because of its location midway between the railroad's major terminal points of Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, Ga.  Construction of  Spencer Shops began in 1896, and they were named in honor of the first president of Southern Railway, Samuel Spencer.

 
During its peak, Spencer Shops employed nearly 3,000 people, which directly and indirectly provided most of the jobs for the towns of Spencer, East Spencer and other surrounding Rowan County communities.  With the advent of the diesel locomotive, Spencer Shops went into decline. The repair facility closed in 1960, but the classification (freight) yard remained open until the late 1970s.  The heyday of steam-power transportation in the U.S. is represented in the photographs below.

Vertical Lines and Postcard Lighthouses https://www.tomcarrollphotography.com/blog/2013/2/vertical-lines-and-postcard-lighthouses The effective use of lines is critical in effective photography.  Straight lines suggest stability; curved lines suggest restfulness; vertical lines suggest formality.  Lighthouses can convey a sense of formality, strength, and power, in part, through the effective use of their inherent vertical lines.

Only Car Guys Need Apply https://www.tomcarrollphotography.com/blog/2013/1/only-car-guys-need-apply A number of us went down to RK Motors in Huntersville, NC, to have a look at more than 300 classic and collector cars.  Each car is for sale and typically priced between $100,000 and $200,000—and in some cases, a whole bunch more.  Pretty nice --- you can look, but don't touch.
