Our Bridge

Our Bridge in Peachtree Corners

Just four months ago I took some photos around “our bridge”. I shared some of these photos, but a number of them I just post-processed for the first time. So let’s just take a look.

What’dya know, the new WordPress editor does not seem to allow re-arranging the order of the images in a tiled gallery the old-fashioned way. Now each image is a “block” and re-arranging requires “walking the block” with the <> icons.

I could not even type here after a short break. Had to start with a new paragraph. That does not forbode well.

More views of the Emory University Hospital – Tower building

In a prior post the subject was the main building of Emory University Hospital in Atlanta (More views of EUH – 1). This post concentrates on the very new and modern Tower building.

Here the building is seen from the pedestrian bridge connecting the buildings across Clifton Road.

Looking west provides grand views of the Atlanta skyline

Each building has a café with surprisingly tasty and modestly priced food.

More views of the Emory University Hospital – main building

Parking is available in a multi-story structure across the street from the main building of Emory University Hospital. There are elevated pedestrian connectors to get to the various building. Here is a view out the huge glass sidewall of the bridge walking from parking to the main building.

This building dates from 1945 as can be seen in the lintel of the entrance.

The building is set back from the street and there is a parklike area in front.

Here is a pano-stitch made from a group of photos taken closer to the building.

Inside, as you would expect, besides the state-of-the-art medical facilities, there are some nods to the early days.

Here is the stained glass window of the chapel room

There a couple more photos that were included to an earlier post, New and Old.

New and Old

Some views from around Emory University Hospital

As is typical of many hospitals, Emory University Hospital, has grown from an initial building to a large campus with structures of many eras.

The main building is interconnected with newer buildings and facilities with overhead enclosed walkways. This includes a pedestrian bridge across Clifton Road.

The bridge is thoroughly modern looking, outside and in.

You can see the walkway structure leading right to the side of the older, stately main building.

And there is a visual surprise. One walks from the 21st century right into the 1920s. Complete with stuffed furniture and chandeliers.

There is also a display of an Olympic torch from the Olympics held in Atlanta in 1996.

Here is a closeup of that display case.

Now we need to pay homage to our slogan here. This blog is about “chats and tips about photography”, so it behooves me to tell a little about these photos. All of them were taken with an iPhone 7. All underwent post-processing. In part due to the format that the iPhone uses for storing photos, “HEIC”. I usually use ON1 Photo RAW to do the conversion and some other post-processing tasks. That also included some perspective corrections.

Just to show how much detail an iPhone photo contains here are a couple of crops from the image above, with some additional processing.

Yes, indeed, these “text” images are crops from the above photo with the white and black sliders in the Photo Gallery histogram in the Adjust exposure panel brought next to each other. There was also use made of other tools.

Digging in the Dark

This 'n That

Another mistake in setting camera exposure

There I was taking pictures of the sunset. It was not that gorgeous a view, but I didn’t want to miss it as I had been there on our iconic town bridge.

My camera was operating in P-mode. The exposures were fine for the barely clouded sky. So I wanted to boost the exposure to get a bit more detail in the buildings and landscape.

I pressed the exposure compensation button and spun the wheel. Of course in the wrong direction.

I pressed the shutter anyway then over-corrected in the other direction. Here are the thumbnails.

Yes, that frame looks pretty black. Here is what the EXIF data said (in part).

Exposure Compensation: -11/3. Minus eleven thirds; that’s just a click less than four stops underexposure. Even the sky is black.

Never shy about experimenting, I decided to see what I could dig…
