Treasures upon earth

Treasures upon earth
What do you do when ‘they’ want to build a massive beautiful building next to your mom’s house? 

Imagine your mother in her home, where your late father worked hard his whole life to provide for his family. Image the whole residential neighborhood is now in the hands of a massive developer. Then ‘they' somehow convince everyone to go along and build a massive complex of buildings right next to your mom’s house!

In the end, the man kept his home but lost his mother during the ordeal and the developer built his buildings.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
- Matthew 6:19-21

The street leading up to the home is now an alley, look beautiful... 
No Outlet, Dead End. Accurate.

$200 scanner vs 18 years old DSLR camera

$200 scanner vs
18 year old DSLR camera
Key takeaways:
1. DSLR scanning is faster if you know how to invert colors, if not stick with Epson and SilverFast.

2. iPhone 13 Pro as a light source is fantastic. It provides a nice consistent white and a great starting point on the color balance. Max out the brightness, turn off 'True Tone' and 'Night shift' in the settings.

3. Nikon ES-2 is fantastic. Almost zero friction to setup and breakdown. Very upgradable, switch out the camera anytime. Very portable too.

4. Affinity Photo is a great Photoshop replacement and it's a one time fee, no subscription!

5. The Epson has more resolution, 3000 x 4250. My old Nikon D70 obviously produced a much smaller image, 2000 x 3000.

6. Which is better? I'll let you decide.
Epson V600
Nikon D70

I have an Epson V600 scanner. It gets the job done but I regularly get weird lines, rings and other problems. I do remove dust if it's on a face or something important. Overall thou, tend to leave these flaws because it gives character.  It's not perfect. 

 I scan using SliverFast 8. SilverFast’s interface is interesting and quirky. It looks to be from the Apple Aqua UI era. I think it was written by a guy in Germany (He flew a Piper airplane around the world). It has every feature you would ever need and should probably never change. 

Unfortunately, scanners are slow. Que the DSLR...
I also own a DSLR from 2004, the Nikon D70. It's 6 megapixels but was, in many ways still is a great camera. I used my iPhone 13 Pro as a light source with the Nikon ES-2 setup. I inverted the colors in Affinity Photo. Cmd-I to invert then used the levels tool to adjusted the RGB channels.

I saw this car at a car show in Immokalee. What a classic!
I wonder if in 60 years the same will be said of cars built today.

Winter Garden on Ultramax 400

Winter Garden
This place is a unique community, it’s a nice mix of new and old. It has the cookie cutter developments that fill up Florida but its done in the best way possible. I guess it was an older small town that the cookie cutter community adapted to. 

It has the staples of an old town like a water tower, old train station, friendly people and a classic main street USA. On Main street, the West orange bike trail runs along it. A lot of families on bikes. A lot of trees, bushes and flowers.

On the modern side is has a parking garage next to main street. A lot of ‘community’ style new homes, condos and restaurants that hopefully won’t overrun this place. Overall it’s nice.
