THE NEW TWO STORY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL by 


EVER SINCE SCHOOL LET OUT IN JUNE OF 2009, THERE HAS BEEN A TON OF CONSTRUCTION AND DESTRUCTION OF “THE NEW TWO STORY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL” AND THE OLD FAIRMONT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE. SUPPOSEDLY, THE NEW SCHOOL IS SUPPOSED TO BE READY FOR SCHOOL, NEAR THE END OF THIS MONTH. THE OLD FAIRMONT SCHOOL WAS TORN DOWN, ALL BUT THE ONE I WANTED TORN DOWN THE MOST. IT IS THE KINDERGARDEN CLASS ROOM RIGHT STRAIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE. OF COURSE THE ONE WITH THE MOST NOISE COMING FROM IT, WOULD BE THE ONLY ONE THEY DIDN’T TEAR DOWN. IT IS GOING TO BE A DAY CARE BUILDING, WITH EVEN SMALLER KIDS IN IT DURING THE DAY. HOPEFULLY, IT WON’T BE AS NOISEY AS THE SCREEMING KINDERGARDNERS WERE IN ALL THE YEARS PAST,,,,,,ALL THE WAY BACK TO 1968. BUT, AS FAR AS THE NEW TWO STORY FAIRMONT SCHOOL, IT HAS LIGHTS IN THE PARKING LOT AND AROUND THE BUILDING. THE OLD ONE DIDN’T. SO, THE FIRST TIME I SAW THE NEW SCHOOL LIT UP,,,,,, I HAD TO GRAB MY CAMERA AND TRIPOD SO I COULD GET A GOOD SHOT OF WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AT NIGHT. I DIDN’T PLAN ON HAVING THE TAIL LIGHTS OF A CAR IN THE IMAGE, BUT I DO LIKE HOW IT TURNED OUT. I’VE GOT ONE OR TWO WITH THE HEADLIGHTS OF CARS AS WELL. I’M GLAD TO SEE THAT CALIFORNIA IS SPENDING SOME MONEY ON SCHOOLS, WHEN THE POLITICIANS IN SACRAMENTO ARE TAKING SO MUCH MONEY FROM LOW INCOME PEOPLE LIKE ME AND CUTTING FUNDING FOR SO MANY OTHER THINGS. SINCE THERE IS SO MUCH DARKNESS IN THIS IMAGE, THE FILE SAVED ON THE SMALL SIZE, EVEN WITH MY LARGEST FILE SETTINGS I HAD. SO, I TOOK THE IMAGE TO PRINTMASTER 11 AND ENLARGED IT TO THE MAXIMUM SIZE I COULD, WHICH IS 4096X3080 PXL. THAT ALOWS ME TO GO AS FAR AS POSTER SIZE WITH OUT ANY TROUBLE. AND THIS ORIGINALLY COMES FROM A 6.2 MGP CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D. THE TIME LAPSE EXPOSURE WAS ONLY 10 SECONDS LONG.

  • THANKS NEIL, I THOUGHT SO TOO. I HAVE ONE SHOT WITHOUT CAR LIGHTS, ONE OR TWO WITH HEAD LIGHTS AND A COUPLE OF ZOOMY ABSTRACTS, MEANING, I ZOOMED THE LENS FROM 200 DOWN TO 70MM WHILE THE SHUTTER WAS OPEN. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT WORKED. I LOVED YOUR VIDEO, THAT WAS TOO COOL AND I’M HONORED THAT YOU USED MY COLOR CORRECTED SHOT OF THE LANCASTER. BOB ;)
