Sometimes Help Is Required Doing Ryukyu Life Stuff (GIF)

Working on a Then and Now Photo Shoot



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.
