if you could read my mind…

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie
‘Bout a ghost from a wishin’ well

That’s the Kodak headquarters building in the center on the photo.  They recently announced huge bonuses to top execs.  I’m always happy for people who get a financial incentive for outstanding job performance (insert smiley face here).

I would also like to dedicate the photo above to One Day/One Image blogger Melinda Green Harvey whose work I have found very inspirational.  Her landscape photos are well crafted and beautifully composed.  It may look easy to do but I assure you it is not.  It’s work like this that make blogging interesting and fun and I intend to dedicate more to those folks whose photos are exceptional.  This photo was taken looking North from the platform of the Rochester Amtrak station.  This is a shameless plug for our other site but you can see the South view here.

    I really like the look of these images, and the one on Lightscatter that seems to be part of the set. Hanging out at the the train station?

    Also thanks for the link to Melinda’s site… I have added it to my list.

    And finally, so glad Kodak management is doing well… I worry about them 🙂

      Thanks, John. I had to pick up at the train station and I arrived a bit early (or was the train late). Fortunately, I had a camera with me. The station is very small but nice and there was adequate security. I asked if they allowed photos and they said yes. Apparently, there are a lot of train folks that come and visit train stations from all over and they are quite used to the photographers.

    These are a very nice set, including the one on Lightscatter. And what a great contrast in the two views from the same spot. It makes an even more fitting tribute to Melinda’s wonderful work since she always seems to find that “other view” of a subject.”Looking around back” I think she calls it.

      Thanks, ehpem. the photo on Lightscatter is from an elevated position from the overpass and it has a very nice view. There are a few flowering trees that were in full bloom, too.

    The toning in these images adds a timeless quality to them, Ken. I’m glad to know Kodak is still trading, as I recall they really misread the digital era catastrophically. Like many of my generation (you included) I don’t know how we would have progressed Photographically if there hadn’t been Kodak out there.

      Thanks, Andy. George Eastman had a love for photography and built a business that made it in reach of the average person. Today’s leadership is only concerned about making money. This is what happens to short sighted leadership.

    Nice photos, Ken, and it’s good to hear about Kodak. Yeah, they’re still struggling, but at least I hope that they can stay around. Thanks for the link, too. It’s always nice to be able to see work that others find interesting.

      Thanks, Melinda. I had been following some blogs for years before I started and it was a long learning curve for me but it’s the only way to try to give back to a great community of photographers.
