State Theater – Red Bluff

December 20th, 2012 by ronlute

State Theater – Red Bluff, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

The old State Theater in Red Bluff, California. I’ve never lived in Red Bluff but I have some fond memories. Back in the 70’s I was at Lake Shasta on a motorcycle and had some issues with the clutch and transmission. The bike shop in So. Cal. had set up my bike poorly. I went to Red Bluff and on the way my shift cable broke. The shop in Red Bluff not only fixed everything but barely charged me anything. I knew then that there was something special about a small town.

I’m back. Finally got out today 1 month after my knee surgery. It is absolutely great to be able to walk around again without the need for a cane. Just went to a few of the old photo spots but it still was totally cool be to out.

Wow. Too many days without. Went a whole week w/out picking up the camera. Here is just a nearby sign. It is a nice one.

I took a somewhat bland photo of a nearby alley from the upper deck parking and did a couple of passes with Topaz Adjust to end up with this rather painterly effect.

365/30 – Cleaning up Market Street

Here is another building getting ready to be demolished on Market Street (the Miracle Mile). I just noticed it today and I can’t even remember what this building is or was.
I need to pay better attention to these old buildings before they get to this state.

365/13 – Union Pacific

Some of the local architecture. Our college university center and a fancy little sphere that is in the quad. Nothing special today in the post processing but I did sit on the ground to get a different POV. That is always something good to do for a little different photo. Pretty easy to do and of course the hardest part for me is getting back up.

365/6 – Golden Sunset

365/6 – Golden Sunset, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Another sunset and so soon. It is easier sometimes when it is a busy day and the days are still rather short. Since my office window faces the West I do get tempted some nights when the colors are cool. It is always a bit of a challenge too to try to get a sharp photo hand held. I tried to do most of these with my lens up against the window to minimise shake. Not too bad I guess.

365/4 – Awnings

365/4 – Awnings, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Well after only 3 days in I missed a day’s blog post. That’s OK though cause I still have a photo a day. I realize it’s a bit ambitious to blog every day but I will work on at least 5 days a week. After a year of 1 to 2 a month 5 days a week will be killer.

Old Barns! Cool! Andrew and I got this a week ago. We are determined to explore much of the north state in search of the photo. Yes.
