The Shay and the Segway.

Lumix LX7 in-camera JPG without adjustments—compare with photo below.



Last weekend, while visiting Clark’s Trading Post in Lincoln, New Hampshire with Lisa King, I had the opportunity to make a brief journey on a Segway two-wheel self-balancing motorized scooter.
 
As I balanced on the Segway, I used my Lumix LX7, to make a view of three-truck Shay-type steam locomotive lettered for the Woodstock Lumber Company and owned by Clark’s railroad, the White Mountain Central.
 
In other words, while traveling on one relatively obscure wheeled device, I exposed a photo of another relatively obscure wheeled device.
 
Keeping the camera level was the tricky part.
 
On my return, White Mountain Central’s excursion train rolled by. While hardly an exemplary image, this one shows both a train and a Segway in the same image.
 
And so now for another story . . .  we saw some bears too!
 
Processed JPG working from Lumix LX7 RAW file. Contrast, exposure and color balance adjusted for improved internet viewing. Notice the greater amounts of detail in the blast and shadow areas.
What’s a Segway? In this view you can see one in motion at the left. On right is the White Mountain Central excursion train. This view was made while in motion.

  1. Cobh Junction picture appeared today. Definitely worth reviving.

    New Orleans streetcar picture also surfaced, but only in the page header, not within the text, The little box identifying the link to the picture allows one to access the link to the image, but the link was not recognised by my browser.

    Maybe some of this will help in resolving the image display issues.
