Day 24: Kinston

I still have a few photos left from our trip to the BBQ festival last weekend so I decided I should bore everyone with more photos from Kinston.

Kinston-10

Kinston-9

A museum for the CSS Neuse, a Confederate ship from the civil war, was allowing people in for free. Of course we had to check it out. Apparently the Confederates scuttled it because they didn’t want the Union Army to get their hands on it after they lost the city. It never traveled more than a mile from where it was built. They set it on fire in the Neuse River and that is where it remained for almost a century. In the 60’s it was found and the recovery process began. Eventually 15,000 artifacts were recovered.

All that remained was the bottom.

Kinston-7

I was surprised that the wood looked as good as it did after being underwater for almost 100 years.

Kinston-3
This is what the top half would have looked like.

And the final image is just a candid shot of an artist at the festival working with a piece of wood.

Kinston-8

As always, thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Day 9: Monochrome

Today’s image is skyline shot from downtown Wilmington North Carolina. Kind of an Odd crop but I like the way it looks so I decided to keep it. Part of my growth as a photographer has been experimenting even if the results are not the best and also sharing those results to help build confidence in my skills.

Shot with my Canon 7d mkii and 50mm lens and processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Day 6: KGB Headquarters?

I took this photo when we were in Wilmington on Sunday. We were walking up a street after watching the cultural dance performances and I saw this sign. It was over a walkway that led in between some buildings and into a courtyard type situation. Of course when I saw it I immediately had to make a joke about it being a secret headquarters for the Russian spy agency. In reality it is a bar (KGB bar) that has 4.5 stars on yelp so I guess we are going to have to check it out one of these days.

Photo taken with my Canon 7dmkii and Tamron 70-300 lens.
