A few images of the garden after some overnight thundershowers (storms).
After 15 years of weathering our cypress fence supports a wide variety of organisms. This image was taken with my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830. Even at 20.1 megapixels, the image doesn’t pop your eyeballs out of your head. ISO 200 but a super slow shutter speed. The limitation of the Sony is that it’s not at its best in lower light situations.
The same section of the fence but this image was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S8+
It’s hard to say which image is “better” as they are both technically correct. The Samsung shows a lot more processing and as a result, looks sharper. But is it better? The Sony shot is closer to capturing the realness of the scene.
Crepe myrtle blossoms – almost an unnatural pink but that’s the way they look. No post-processing. Sony Cyber-shot.
New growth – wonderful greens. Sony Cyber-shot.

This image received no post-production except for a gentle crop and a slight exposure adjustment. It was late in the day so I’m sure the camera was doing its best to balance the available light with the need to focus and freeze the action. Sometimes the simplest of cameras are the best. I’m sure a more sophisticated DLSR or mirrorless camera would have captured a “better” image but who lugs those around 24/7?
I believe this image is from around 1947 – I’m not positive about the exact date but there are many signs that it’s at least the late 1940s. Eastern Air Lines operated DC-3’s until about 1953.
This picture was taken at a local Jacksonville hotel which had on display a series of historical photos of J’ville back in the day. The image is of an Eastern DC-3 parked on the ramp in front of the Imeson Control Tower at the Jacksonville Imeson Airport.
This colorized postcard was made from that image and was a well-known postcard of the day depicting Jacksonville. I believe the title on the card is wrong as the airport was not known as the Jacksonville Municipal Airport post World War II.
Make note of the Sailor walking towards the building (lower left) – a common site around the airport as Jacksonville is a “Navy Town”.
