Sometimes Help Is Required Doing Ryukyu Life Stuff (GIF)
One of these days, an article, explaining how we do these things should be put together.
Composing an image to duplicate a photo created 50 years ago can be challenging.
The mission here, was to photograph a rock, out in the ocean.
Over the years landslides and the re-routing of the highway, complicated things a bit.
The cameraman, would have to do some rock climbing, to get in position.
When, I was younger, that climb would have been no problem.
But, I try not to do things like that, anymore.
Luckily, Ryukyu Rusty was back on the island for a visit, in August.
He and the Map It Okinawa dude, climbed up there and, got the job done.
When, they came back down with the photos, required, Map It Dude, asked me a question.
He said, "What would you do if Rusty shot all the photos at ISO 800?"
My Answer: I would have been mad enough, to climb up there and do it myself !
The outcome of this project will be published in the near future.
Have a peek at previous Then and Now photos here.
