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.
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.
Doodling in the office is not an uncommon way to idle away a few minutes. However, “Photoodling in Office” is a totally different matter. In earlier posts I explained the derivation of the term “photoodle” as stemming from “photography” and “doodling”, playful, unplanned and undirected manipulating of photos. Mostly this happens with the digital images from earlier camera work. Continue reading →
As I was preparing a post for another blog, I was looking for photos of cafe doors. Searching my archives I came across one that was a nice enough image but for some reason or another I took it with the camera way cockeyed. No idea what I was thinking at the time. The other photos in the series were perfectly alright, but this one was the only one that really fit my story.
Here is the original.

Just not the way I want it. OK, let’s go to Microsoft Image Composite Editor. Nothing to “composite” here, just one frame. ICE won’t accept a single file. So I duplicated it. Loaded it into ICE, told it I was using “Rotating Motion” and had it “Stitch”. It will do that with two copies of the same photo. Then it lets you manipulate it as you like. For “Projection” I used “Perspective”. This let me do some perspective correction as well as rotating the image freely. Now I had a picture I liked. Saved it without cropping.
Since the image was rotated rather strongly the exported image showed a lot of black around the useful picture. That didn’t look so good. Paint to the rescue! Just drop in “white” in each of the black triangles and here we are. What do you think, will this work?
