Portola Museum September 17th, 1996

Towards the end of his life, Dad was retired and restless. He spent a lot of time with my son and for that I am ever grateful.

Occasionally, he would feel well enough to take Mom and head to museums that he supported through donations, to “see where my money is going” and he’d smile.

ROAD TRIP !

This slide set is one photo with two approaches.

The first is only trimmed to avoid the second and Gimp did that for me – somehow. ( https://www.gimp.org/ ) but I cannot outsmart the colour adjusting.

I like Gimp and appreciate it but the wife works for Adobe.com and it is more powerful in a lot of ways so buy it please :0) I want to retire someday.

Onward

The WP Museum at Portola, California <<< CLICK THIS LINK AND SUPPORT is family friendly, has hands on opportunities and is living history.

I really appreciate the composition here and although slightly trimmed at the right, the depth is fascinating, to me anyway. Actually it looks like an H.O. model.

That’s the way it goes !

And then there is the reality of the image. Not the end of roll where you often see these sorts of things, but right in the middle.

But it was (is) a keeper and you may want to while away some time at their gallery : https://www.wplives.org/gallery/home_page_cover_photos.html too.
