With the new version of photoshop CC I am editing with big pleasure my old stuff . What an amazing adventure ....!

I am totally happy about the new technology . Thank You my dear Flickr's friends for your comments and faves, and above all your big inspiration !

  

"Adobe Photoshop is a raster graphics editor developed and published by Adobe Systems for macOS and Windows.

 

Photoshop CC (14.0) was launched on 18 June 2013. As the next major version after CS6, it is only available as part of a Creative Cloud subscription, ....Major features in this version include All-new Smart Sharpen, Intelligent Upsampling, and Camera Shake Reduction for reducing blur caused by camera shake. Editable Rounded Rectangles and an update to Adobe Camera Raw (8.0) were also included.

 

Since the initial launch, Adobe has released two additional feature-bearing updates. The first, version 14.1, was launched on 9 September 2013. The major features in this version were Adobe Generator, a Node.js-based platform for creating plug-ins for Photoshop. Photoshop 14.1 shipped with two plug-ins, one to automatically generate image assets based on an extension in the layer name, and another to automatically generate assets for Adobe Edge Reflow.[61]

 

Version 14.2 was released on 15 January 2014. Major features include Perspective Warp, Linked Smart Objects, and 3D Printing support.

Photoshop CC 2018 was released on 18 October 2017. It featured an overhaul to the brush organization system, allowing for more properties (such as color and opacity) to be saved per-brush and for brushes to be categorized in folders and sub-folders. It also added brush stroke smoothing, and over 1000 brushes created by Kyle T. Webster (following Adobe's acquisition of his website, KyleBrush.com[68]). A Curvature Pen tool, similar to the one in Illustrator, was added, allowing for faster creation of Bézier paths. Other additions were Lightroom Photo access, Variable font support, copy-paste layers, enhanced tooltips, 360 panorama and HEIF support, PNG compression, algorithm improvements to Face-aware and selection tools, improved image resizing, and performance improvements to file opening, filters, and brush strokes."

The first stage was designed by Colonial Architect James Barnet. Built in 1881-1882 as a Cable Station. Additions were made in 1885 and 1888. The building provided accommodation for officers of the Eastern Extension Australasia and China Telegraph Company. The company had finished laying a cable to New Zealand in 1876. Cables were received and sent from the building’s instrument room. A second cable line was laid in 1890. In 1903 the company built a larger office at Yarra Bay (see form for Yarra Bay House). Thereafter this building was used only for accommodation. New technology made the operation redundant in 1916. The building was used for a variety of purposes until leased to the Salvation Army in 1944. It was then used as a refuge for women and children until 1987. An extensive restoration programme was undertaken by the Public Works Department and the building became the La Perouse Museum in 1988. It was presented to the NSW Government by the French Minister, Mr Andre Girand, as a bicentennial gift on behalf of the La Perouse Association. The building is now administered by the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

I heard you on the wireless back in fifty two

Lying awake intent at tuning in on you

If I was young it didn't stop you coming through

Oh, a, oh

They took the credit for your second symphony

Rewritten by machine on new technology

And now I understand the problems you can see

Oh, a, oh

I met your children

Oh a oh

What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star

Video killed the radio star

Pictures came and broke your heart

Oh, a, a, a, oh

And now we meet in an abandoned studio (ohh)

We hear the playback and it seems so long ago

And you remember the jingles used to go (ahh)

Oh, a, oh

You were the first one

Oh, a, oh

You were the last one

Urban exploration photography from Arrochar, Scotland.

 

I had always fancied a little 'Urbex' photography but since my ankle injury and surgeries a few years ago, wasn't really fit enough for the climbing and scrambling often needed. While I don't condone trespassing in any way, these are extraordinary times and I am in the high risk group so sneaking past a couple of 'dangerous structure' and 'do not enter' signs actually felt liberating. Standing here on 100 year old concrete, wood and pillars above the dark loch water was a little unnerving however. I do find a certain aesthetic beauty in the decay of man-made structures gradually being taken back by the natural world though.

 

The Loch Long Torpedo Range operated from 1912 to 1986. Only the abandoned Admiralty pier and slipway remain today after demolition of main buildings in 2007.

 

Activity at the range peaked during World War II with more than 12,000 unarmed torpedoes being fired down the loch in testing of new technologies of the day. Many of the test torpedoes never surfaced and still lie at the bottom of the loch along the line of fire.

 

While exploring the pier and avoiding an open manhole that dropped right into the loch, I was visited briefly by a curious seal who, sadly, didn't hang around long enough for a photograph.

 

An unusual departure for me but for obvious reasons I am avoiding contact with people and was enjoying a day of remote exploration away from cities and towns. Enjoy!

Faro de Oropesa del Mar (Spain), a reminder of a past that new technologies have set aside, how much they have benefited from navigation on stormy nights.

The new technologies allow to have a conversation with the person sitting in front without looking at each other.

Where some new technologies are ignored, patchwork fields like these exist separated by grasses, shrubs, trees resolute in defiance of the monoculture and providing habitat for displaced nature. On nearby 400 acre grows, there is no place for a hawk to rest or a doe to hide her fawn. In Amishland, there is a more interesting and diverse ecology.

Futures made of virtual insanity - now

Always seem to, be govern'd by this love we have

For useless, twisting, our new technology

Oh, now there is no sound - for we all live underground

 

Of this virtual insanity, we're livin in.

Has got to change, yeah

Things, will never be the same.

And I can't go on

While we're livin' in oh, oh virtual insanity

Oh, this world, has got to change

Cos I just, I just can't keep going on, it was virtual.

Virtual insanity that we're livin' in, that we're livin' in

That virtual insanity is what it is

Hope you like it Moira! thanks for sending your pile up to my group :)

 

Here's the link to my pile up group if you want to add yours, read previous pics for desc on it www.flickr.com/groups/2219947@N25/

 

I literally spent 2 hours in youtube looking for a song, and getting derailed listening to songs, from pretty much all genre (except country or rap, sorry but still not digging them overall), so in the end I just went with whatever first song came up and it kinda fit, for two reasons, one because SL is pretty much Virtual Insanity, and second because....

 

I have no idea what this is or where it came from, here is the progress of the pile up as it was coming along:

I didn't use that last one but i wanted to show you my lack of thought process along the way, at no point whatsoever did i ever think pic 1 would end up like this, and i'm still not sure if i like it, but I believe that one of the things I love the most of pile ups is being able to immerse myself and do anything, to let go and not think about what i'm doing, it's one of the things I love most about PS, I think I've said that before.

 

Sorry about the size, i wish it would've been bigger (that's not what she said). and I didn't want to crop the left side because it gives it a nice image distribution or idk what the term is, i just think it looks nicer.

 

PS Hopefully i'll get some more done this weekend, it's been a while since i've enjoyed PS as much as i have lately

Alsooo i've been trying some stuff, and i do believe this is the best hair i've drawn in a long time, normally i don't try this because i am not as good so it takes me a while to get it good.

If this isn't bad enough my Instagram account Birds2Bears has be stolen by www.instagram.com/kathrynvarmeldhon/

So Copytrack is going to be very busy I will receive 70% of the recovery which they estimate between 130-450 Euros per photo per offender. I never thought I would make money from my photographs this way, most of these companies are selling them as wallpapers.

 

Needless to say any photo I post will now have my name and copyright written across it, if they are going to take then I'm not making it easy.

Wake me up Avicii

 

"Feeling my way through the darkness

Guided by a beating heart

I can't tell where the journey will end

But I know where to start

They tell me I'm too young to understand

They say I'm caught up in a dream

Well life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes

Well that's fine by me

So wake me up when it's all over

When I'm wiser and I'm older

All this time I was finding myself, and I

Didn't know I was lost

So wake me up when it's all over

When I'm wiser and I'm older

All this time I was finding myself, and I

Didn't know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world

But I only have two hands

Hope I get the chance to travel the world

But I don't have any plans

Wish that I could stay forever this young

Not afraid to close my eyes

Life's a…..."

"Hallo Bandoeng"

 

Radio Kootwijk arose as a result of the building of a shortwave radio transmitter with the same name, starting in 1918. The transmitter played an important role in the 20th century as a communication facility between the Netherlands and its then colony of Dutch East Indies. In 1923 Dutch PTT started trans-oceanic telegraphy using a longwave transmitter (a 400 kW high frequency alternator) from the German Telefunken company under the callsign PCG, on 24 kHz and 48 kHz. By 1925 the longwave transmitter was changed by a shortwave tube based, electronic transmitter which had a much better performance due to the better propagation of short waves. With this new technology, in 1928 a radio-telephonic connection was established. At the end of World War II, the German occupying forces blew up the transmitter. Afterward some of the radio towers were rebuilt.

Of all the Victorian house styles, Queen Anne is the most elaborate and the most eccentric. The style is often called romantic and feminine, yet it is the product of a most unromantic era -- the machine age.

 

The Queen Anne style became fashionable in the 1880s and 1890s, when the industrial revolution was building up steam in the United States. North America was caught up in the excitement of new technologies. Factory-made, pre-cut architectural parts were shuttled across the country on a rapidly expanding train network.

"The Nights"

 

Once upon a younger year,

When all our shadows disappeared,

The animals inside came out to play.

Went face to face with all our fears,

Learned our lessons through the tears,

Made memories we knew would never fade.

 

One day my father—he told me,

"Son, don't let it slip away."

He took me in his arms, I heard him say,

 

"When you get older

Your wild heart will live for younger days.

Think of me if ever you're afraid."

 

He said, "One day you'll leave this world behind.

So, live a life you will remember."

My father told me when I was just a child,

"These are the nights that never die."

My father told me,

 

"When thunder clouds start pouring down

Light a fire they can't put out,

Carve your name into those shining stars."

He said, "Go venture far beyond the shores.

Don't forsake this life of yours.

I'll guide you home no matter where you are."

 

One day my father—he told me,

"Son, don't let it slip away."

When I was just a kid I heard him say,

 

"When you get older

Your wild heart will live for younger days.

Think of me if ever you're afraid."

 

He said, "One day you'll leave this world behind.

So, live a life you will remember."

My father told me when I was just a child

"These are the nights that never die."

My father told me,

 

"These are the nights that never die."

My father told me.

My father told me.

For a while now, I've been contributing photos to Google Maps.

 

It's a nice diversion from Charger only photos and a fun outlet for creativity. Although I haven't made it a priority to include my Charger in the photos, somehow the car has found its way into a few of my Spokane photos (imagine that).

 

A number of my photos have had over half a million views each which is pretty neat. It depends greatly on the location or business you add the photo to and also who's searching Google. I can't control it so I just enjoy it when one goes crazy. So, in no particular order, here are some of the photos I've uploaded to Google Maps over the last two years.

DESCRIPTION

 

FIRST AERIAL CROSSING OF THE SOUTH ATLANTIC

 

The first aerial crossing of the South Atlantic was made by the Portuguese naval aviators GAGO COUTINHO and SACADURA CABRAL in 1922, to mark the centennial of Brazil's independence.

 

Coutinho and Cabral flew in stages from Lisbon, Portugal, to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, using three different Fairey III biplanes, and covered a distance of 8,383 kilometres (5,209 mi) between March 30 and June 17.

 

Although the North Atlantic had already been traversed in a non-stop flight by John Alcock and Arthur Brown in 1919, Coutinho and Cabral's flight remains notable as a milestone in transatlantic aviation, and for its use of new technologies such as the artificial horizon.

 

FIRST AIRCRAFT

 

The journey started at the Bom Sucesso Naval Air Station in the Tagus, near the Belém Tower in Lisbon, at 16:30 on March 30, 1922, in the Portuguese Naval Aviation aircraft Lusitânia, a FAIREY III-D MKII SEAPLANE SPECIFICALLY outfitted for the journey.

 

THE LUSITÂNIA WAS EQUIPPED WITH AN ARTIFICIAL HORIZON FOR AERONAUTICAL USE, A REVOLUTIONARY INVENTION AT THE TIME; according to the Portuguese Navy Museum, testing the horizon was one of the main reasons for the flight.

 

The first part of the journey ended on the same day at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, where the aviators noticed that the plane's fuel consumption was higher than expected.

 

The journey resumed on April 5, when they departed for São Vicente Island, Cape Verde, traversing 1,370 kilometres (850 mi).

 

After making repairs on the Lusitânia, they departed São Vicente on April 17 and flew to Praia on Santiago Island, and then to the Saint Peter and Saint Paul Archipelago, already in Brazilian waters, where they arrived on the same day, after flying 1,700 kilometres (1,100 mi) over the South Atlantic.

 

They had reached that point by relying solely on the Coutinho's sextant with its artificial horizon.

 

However, when ditching on the rough seas near the archipelago, the Lusitânia lost one of its floats and sank. The two aviators were saved by the cruiser NRP República, which had been sent by the Portuguese Navy to support the aerial crossing. The aviators were then carried to the Brazilian Fernando de Noronha islands.

 

SECOND AIRCRAFT

 

Enthusiastic Portuguese and Brazilian public opinion about the flight led the Portuguese government to send another Fairey III seaplane to complete the journey.

 

The new plane, baptized PÁTRIA, arrived at Fernando Noronha on May 6.

 

After being refitted, the Pátria departed on May 11 with Coutinho and Cabral on board. They flew to the Saint Peter and Saint Paul Archipelago to resume the journey at the point where it had been interrupted.

 

However, an engine problem forced them to once again make an emergency ditching in the middle of the ocean, where they drifted for nine hours until being saved by the nearby British cargo ship Paris City, which carried them back to Fernando Noronha.

 

THIRD AIRCRAFT

 

A third Fairey III – bapti

zed SANTA CRUZ BY the wife of Epitácio Pessoa, the President of Brazil – was sent out, carried by the cruiser NRP Carvalho Araújo.

 

On June 5, the Santa Cruz was put in the waters of Fernando Noronha and Coutinho and Cabral resumed their journey, flying to Recife, then to Salvador da Bahia, then to Vitória and from there to Rio de Janeiro, where they arrived on June 17, 1922, ditching in the Guanabara Bay.

 

The two men were received as heroes by huge crowds, and were greeted by the aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont.

 

Although their journey had lasted 79 days, the actual flight time was just 62 hours and 26 minutes.

 

LATER TRANSATLANTIC FLIGHTS

 

In January 1926, a Spanish team including Ramón Franco, Julio Ruiz de Alda Miqueleiz, Juan Manuel Duran and Pablo Rada made the first flight between Spain and South America in a single aircraft, the Plus Ultra.

 

They followed a similar route to Cabral and Coutinho.

 

Coutinho and Cabral's aerial crossing inspired numerous subsequent transatlantic pilots, such as the American Charles Lindbergh, the Brazilian João Ribeiro de Barros and the Portuguese Sarmento de Beires, all of whom crossed the Atlantic in 1927.

A shot over my shoulder toward the Tropics Greenhouse as our boat entered the Aquacell. I love this attraction.

 

"Living with the Land (originally Listen to the Land) is a slow-moving boat ride consisting of a dark ride and greenhouse tour located within The Land, a pavilion at Future World at the Epcot theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida. The focus of the ride is on agriculture, especially new technology to make agriculture more efficient, sustainable, and environmentally friendly".

The French DGA (Armament General Division) brought this very nice looking Mirage 2000 to Paris Air Show for the static display. The plane is used for testing of new technologies, as mentionned on the plane ^^

It was the very first plane that arrived, 6 days before the beginning of the airshow! What a cool livery!

..The word "photography" was created from the Greek roots

φωτός (phōtos), genitive of φῶς (phōs), "light"

and

γραφή (graphé) "representation by means of lines" or "drawing",

together meaning "drawing with light".

**********************************************************************

My Friends,

I'm here this time to share with YOU an important date for all persons loving photography..

In fact

PHOTOGRAPHY

has the "official" birth date on

July 9, 1839

when the patent of the photographic process by Louis Jacque Mande Daguerre (1787- 1851), set designer and creator of dioramas, was granted by the Academy of Sciences in Paris.

By the way

[from: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_photography]

The history of photography has roots in remote antiquity with the discovery of the principle of the camera obscura (a dark room) and the observation that some substances are visibly altered by exposure to light. As far as is known, nobody thought of bringing these two phenomena together to capture camera images in permanent form until around 1800, when Thomas Wedgwood made the first reliably documented although unsuccessful attempt. In the mid-1820s, Nicéphore Niépce succeeded, but several days of exposure in the camera were required and the earliest results were very crude. Niépce's associate Louis Daguerre went on to develop the daguerreotype process, the first publicly announced photographic process, which required only minutes of exposure in the camera and produced clear, finely detailed results. It was commercially introduced in 1839, a date generally accepted as the birth year of practical photography.

 

The metal-based daguerreotype process soon had some competition from the paper-based calotype negative and salt print processes invented by Henry Fox Talbot. Subsequent innovations reduced the required camera exposure time from minutes to seconds and eventually to a small fraction of a second; introduced new photographic media which were more economical, sensitive or convenient, including roll films for casual use by amateurs; and made it possible to take pictures in natural color as well as in black-and-white.

 

The commercial introduction of computer-based electronic digital cameras in the 1990s soon revolutionized photography. During the first decade of the 21st century, traditional film-based photochemical methods were increasingly marginalized as the practical advantages of the new technology became widely appreciated and the image quality of moderately priced digital cameras was continually improved.

I love the old fashion look with the new technology...!

This was a shot I completed last year for a YS story, but I feel it is a good one for Sue's assignment. Old and New, as depicted by myself and my youngest daughter. I read books, and she is all about the new technology.

Physical scars heal over time, they can even disappear or can be removed with new technology. But mental scars can follow you all through life

We are not there yet

We have not evolved

We have no respect

We have lost control

We're going backwards

Ignoring the realities

Going backwards

Are you counting all the casualties?

We are not there yet

Where we need to be

We are still in debt

To our insanities

We're going backwards

Turning back our history

Going backwards

Piling on the misery

We can track it all with satellites

See it all in plain sight

Watch men die in real time

But we have nothing inside

We feel nothing inside

We are not there yet

We have lost our soul

The course has been set

We're digging our own hole

We're going backwards

Armed with new technology

Going backwards

To a caveman mentality

We can emulate on consoles

Killings we can control

With senses that have been dulled

Because there's nothing inside

We feel nothing inside

We feel nothing inside

 

Because there's nothing inside

The mill was started by Louis Seppmann in 1862 for the purpose of milling wheat. It was constructed using thick slabs of stone and timber located on Seppmann's property. It was finished in 1864 after being delayed by the U.S.-Dakota Conflict. Eventually, as new technology emerged, the mill became less profitable. It ceased operations in 1907. Currently, it remains a historical landmark connected jointly to Minneopa Park. Although you cannot enter the mill today, visitors can still appreciate the craftsmanship and perseverance visible in the mills exquisite quality.

♫ Oh yeah, what we're living in (let me tell ya)

It's a wonder man can eat at all

When things are big that should be small

Who can tell what magic spells we'll be doing for us

And I'm giving all my love to this world

Only to be told

I can't see

I can't breathe

No more will we be

And nothing's going to change the way we live

'Cause we can always take but never give

And now that things are changing for the worse,

See, its a crazy world we're living in

And I just can't see that half of us immersed in sin

Is all we have to give these

Futures made of virtual insanity now

Always seem to, be governed by this love we have

For useless, twisting, our new technology

Oh, now there is no sound for we all live underground

And I'm thinking what a mess we're in

Hard to know where to begin

If I could slip the sickly ties that earthly man has made

And now every mother, can choose the color

Of her child

That's not nature's way

Well that's what they said yesterday

There's nothing left to do but pray

I think it's time I found a new religion

Whoa, it's so insane

To synthesize another strain

There's something in these

Futures that we have to be told

Futures made of virtual insanity now

Always seem to, be governed by this love we have

For useless, twisting, our new technology

Oh, now there is no sound for we all live underground

Now there is no sound

If we all live underground

And now it's virtual insanity

Forget your virtual reality

Oh, there's nothing so bad

I know yeah

Of this virtual insanity, we're livin' in

Has got to change, yeah

Things, will never be the same

And I can't go on

While we're livin' in oh, oh virtual insanity

Oh, this world, has got to change

'Cause I just, I just can't keep going on, it was virtual

Virtual insanity that we're livin' in, that we're livin' in

That virtual insanity is what it is

Futures made of virtual insanity now

Always seem to, be governed by this love we have

For useless, twisting, our new technology

Oh, now there is no sound for we all live underground

Futures made of virtual insanity now

Always seem to, be governed by this love we have

For useless, twisting, our new technology

Oh, now there is no sound for we all live underground

Living, virtual insanity

Virtual insanity is what we're living in... ♫

I much preferred the magic carpet tours

Paseando por la Orotava, vi este magnifico y nuevo automovil, un Renault 4L, me llamo la antención el perfecto estado de conservacion y me pregunto ¿sabran los mecanicos de ahora con las nuevas tecnologias, reparar este vehiculo?.

 

Während ich durch den Orotava schlenderte, sah ich dieses großartige neue Auto, einen Renault 4L, mein Name ist der perfekte Erhaltungszustand und ich frage mich, ob die Mechaniker jetzt mit den neuen Technologien wissen, dieses Fahrzeug zu reparieren?

 

Passejant per la Orotava, vaig veure aquest magnífic i nou automòbil, un Renault 4L, em dic la antenció el perfecte estat de conservació i em pregunto ¿sabran els mecànics d'ara amb les noves tecnologies, reparar aquest vehicle ?.

 

Strolling through the Orotava, I saw this magnificent new car, a Renault 4L, my name is the perfect condition conservation and I wonder, will the mechanics know now with the new technologies, repair this vehicle ?.

*Working Towards a Better World

 

We need a global approach to this from all sides. We need to educate people, we need the scientists to create new technologies, we need the engineers to create the networks, we need every human being to be aware of how precious water is and save it. Everybody has to be involved in a very firm and assertive way. - Isabel Allende

 

Thank you for your kind visit.

Have a wonderful and beautiful day! xo💜💜

An abandoned swing bridge now replaced by new technology.

The world’s first iron bridge emerged during a time of immense change in Britain – it was the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. New technologies were being developed and the country’s rural landscape was changing as an industrial nation began to take shape.

One such development took place in 1709, in the Shropshire village of Coalbrookdale. Abraham Darby (1678–1717) – the first in what would become a distinguished dynasty of iron masters – had pioneered an innovative method of iron smelting.

Using coke made from local coal to fuel furnaces rather than charcoal, Darby’s discovery made the mass production of cast iron economically viable.

With this breakthrough in production, the iron trade in Britain accelerated and local industry began to flourish.

As industry around the gorge grew, so did the need for a strong and durable bridge to transport goods across the river. In 1773, Thomas Farnolls Pritchard – an architect from Shrewsbury – had a bold idea. Combining engineering expertise and new iron-casting techniques, he proposed the world’s first iron bridge, which would link the parishes of Madley and Benthall over what was one of the busiest rivers in the country.

Pritchard’s designs were approved by Act of Parliament and in 1777 construction began. Overseen by Darby’s grandson Abraham Darby III after Pritchard’s death, it was to be a cast iron single-span bridge of 30 metres, with five main semicircular ribs.

The radical new structure, which formally opened on New Year’s Day 1781, used a total of 378 tons of iron at a cost of around £6,000 – significantly more than the £3,200 first estimated.

The Impact of the bridge

It must be the admiration, as it is one of the wonders, of the world. (John Byng, traveller and writer, 1784)

The fusion of natural beauty and industrial activity around the Severn Gorge attracted many artists and writers. Richard Warner, a writer and priest, described Coalbrookdale in 1801 as ‘a scene in which the beauties of nature and processes of art are blended together in curious combination’.

But the unveiling of the Iron Bridge brought new visitors, who marvelled at its scale and ingenuity. The bridge became a centre of commerce and a town known as Ironbridge grew up around it.

The structure also inspired the future of bridge design and engineering. Its massive strength saw it survive the great flood of 1795, motivating builders and engineers like Thomas Telford to construct their own iron structures.

With hot cars for Erie, and Welches in North East, the eastbound local out of Conneaut, C62, wastes no time as it blasts through some fresh snow in Girard, PA. Unfortunately for the crew a few hours later they would put three of their cars on the ground in Erie.

 

The blue plug by the fuel tank on the side of 5035 is a receptacle for NS's new "Sleeper System". Conneaut is one of about 10 terminals equipped with the new plug in system that keeps the engine warm in the cold temperatures without requiring the locomotive to idle. New technology is popping up all over the Lake Erie District. Another being PTC upgrades which are evident here in Girard. New replacement signals are up and ready to replace all the remaining classic NKP signals between Conneaut and Erie.

The territory of Calella, Maresme, Catalunya, sports a few interesting features just above Cala de la Vinyeta (of which I uploaded two sunrise shots recently): a lighthouse - yes: a small, neat 19th century lighthouse (see it in the near future) - and, on top of the hill aptly named after them, Les Torretes ( = the small towers).

Les Torretes are the sad remnants of two towers built in the mid-19th century as part of a semaphore line, a sort of visual telegraph - although I have been told that the smaller one (the second in the photo) has been used for military purposes, too.

I have quite been striked by the history of these towers - I did not even know of the (brief) existence of semaphore lines before - they were soon superseded by a more powerful communication mean, the electrical telegraph, and quickly fell into disuse (from the chosen pov they look pretty intact in their structure, but the other walls are almost non existent :-)).

On that early morning Les Torretes told me the tale of mankind's constant struggle towards new technologies, leading to the dismissal of older ones; the once-new technologies would in turn become unfashionable, then slightly out of date, and at last would be dismissed in favor of newer ones. So the fate of most technologies is to go with the wind - except​ for​ USS Enterprise's warp drive and its transporter, of course. And, oh, Douglas Adams' SEP field :-)

 

I captured this scene during one of my sunrise sessions in Calella - this is just to set the scene for further shots in that location, where the towers are only partially visible - or not at all present in the composition.

So... he gave me the access to his SL.. my task is to fix him to new technology, ie, bento and etc, and I think I fixed him to be young :p

Old technology stands defiant amid new technology allthouth each has a different purpose.

There are 55, 1.65 mw, wind turbines. The towers are 67 metres tall and each blade is 40 metres long.

 

😄 just trying to maneuver the new technology to take snaps by phone and transfer it to Flickr! ... And all in a sleepless night 😞
