Through a Glass, Brightly

Photo of the icebreaker 'Griffon' framed by tops of closer trees in foreground with lighting adjusted to improve visibility

So, a little amateur photography through the window in my room. The photo above has been adjusted for shadows and highlights to improve visibility compared to the original. A gallery of the (cropped) original and tweaked photograph are shown below for easy comparison.

As you can I get some interesting views through my window because of where the house in which I live is situated. Apparently it used to be the lookout for the coal docks / rail yard in Midland.

Don’t worry though — I don’t actually look out the window all that often as I’m busy working away on my computer or in another room, most of the time. I find kind of scary, myself, the view someone in a house like this could get of this part of Midland.

I’ve had quite an interesting (read challenging) life and managed to do some pretty good work despite all of that. On this site, however, I am mostly focused on topics that are either personal or political, rather than ‘real work’ like firmware development, web development, work history, and the various professional and hobby activities that are what far too many folks see as the only things that make a person’s life valuable or make a person’s life matter.
