Thursday Doors: Corning, New York 6

There’s a plaza in Corning that’s paved in brick, which is one of my favorite things in the world. On one side is a bank:

On the other side is a parking garage:

So beautiful!

I got a good picture of a red barn with multiple doors in view:

And a door that’s seen better days:

As you see, my pictures still suffer (or, if you like it, benefit) from moire pattern. I found out I would have to add modules to my GIMP in order to reduce or eliminate it, and I do not need another learning curve nor another time suck. So we’ll just have to live with it.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Someone refuses to learn something new.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    You got some good looking doors, here, Marian. I love the little barn and that door laying down on the side. It looks like it served well.

      I wonder if they left it out on purpose to weather, or if it just got discarded and forgotten. Either way, it has lots of character.

        My guess is it was a โ€œJust set it over there for nowโ€ kind of thing. I have a few odd bits lying around that started with that expression.

    That top building is really nice. I see why you like it so much.

    You didn’t get very much moire in that image. I think changing your distance or angle for the other images would have helped. I totally get not wanting another learning curve and time suck though.

      I’ll have to experiment with zooming. It might be that zooming in on the image makes the moire. It doesn’t show until I get it into GIMP. I’ll try taking a huge picture and cropping it on the phone, and taking a huge picture and cropping it in GIMP, and see if either or both will help.

        It’s not present on the building in the first image but, it is on the driveway/sidewalk where you were closer. Experimenting with distance from things with a lot of pattern would be a good exercise and also the noting the aperture. That’s the f number in the settings.

          I don’t have an aperture; I use my phone. Newer phones might have f numbers, but mine doesn’t. Charlie said I like a PhD camera: Push here, Dummy. lol
