Unique fishing platform    These bamboo fishing platforms, called bagan, are anchored in the Java Sea near the Ujung Kulon Penninsula.  At dusk a kerosene lamp on the platform is lit and lowered to water level, and the nets are lowered. The fish are attracted to the lights and captured in the nets.  Boats then come by and collect the fish to taken them to market (photos of the fishing boats to be posted after alphabet day)    Several other photos of this interesting way of fishing, plus the greater crested terns that frequent the platforms, can be seen here: http://goo.gl/Wha7HR    29/03/14 www.allenfotowild.com

Never a Good Sign16 April 2014 -- 106/365North Providence, Rhode IslandMurphy's Law states that, "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong."  When it comes to my family, though, you can add the phrase "especially in the month of April" to that law.  I don't know what it is, but April is a cursed month for my family.  It always has been.  I saw this year's scourge when I arrived home from work.  Two National Grid trucks and a backhoe were blocking my driveway.  That's when I noticed the huge hole in my lawn.  It turns out that our mail carrier smelled gas when she delivered the mail today, and notified the gas company.  They arrived (very quickly, I'm told) and determined that there is indeed a gas leak in the line connecting my house to the street.  Lovely.  Looks like I'll be ordering takeout for dinner tonight since there's still no gas available for my stove.  Tomorrow's shower will be rather chilly too, if they don't get this fixed tonight.  Did I mention I hate the month of April?Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX.  I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, and boost black.  a levels adjustment was added in PSE.
Lion dancer performing for the crowd, Belitung, Sumatra  Belitung Island is off the East cost of Sumatra in the Java Sea.  In the past it belonged to Britain and then to the Dutch.  Its principal products are pepper and tin. Belitung is not often visited, but it has some great white sand beaches with granite rocks, and good snorkeling.  It was our last stop on our circumnavigation of Sumatra, and, as usual, the locals pulled out all the stops to provide hospitality and entertainment for us.    In response to billiejean's question, these photos were taken on the first-ever circumnavigation of Sumatra on a Zegrahm Expeditions small ship adventure cruise that went into many areas rarely visited by travellers.   Some photos from the welcoming ceremonies can be seen here: http://goo.gl/e90Q7y  14/04/14  www.allenfotowild.com

13APR2014  Into The Light  My great friend passed away last night….such a short time we had together.  Unlike my brothers, he cared about me like a brother….yet he knew so little of my past…  My heart hurts from you leaving so soon my friend…..i know your in a better place….carry my prayers to my mom and dad as you walk the road into the light, guide my lenses from harm help me with my watering viewfinders, help me Rory get ambition and focus in my life, help me share my life with those who have little and are in need ……my zoom cannot go where you are, know i will see you again….always optimistic, never a frown…..as the shirt says he was from the big town.  The autopsy revealed Rory had an enlarged heart…..I could have told them that.  Busy lives tend to keep us from thinking of the time we have left here on this planet.….maybe the next life has you knowing a predetermined end date and some requirements of you while being there…..your faith set you free. Forty nine years old Rory told me his tales from his life, his struggles and strife, he painted quite a tough life….he apparently got done what was required of him here.  Waiting for the train….we have all done it, mostly as an inconvenience or as a mode of transit they impact our lives. The rush of the wind as the locomotive passes either on the platform or in the siding still caused a smile from Rory each time we went out to shoot……the long breaks between trains turned to conversation and laughter….friendship.  Rory and his wife Jenifer are both members of the Omaha Camera Club here in Omaha Nebraska, Rory shot with a Sony camera.  Linda and I met him at the train museum in Council Bluffs Iowa…..wandering aimlessly around the dead steel out front, he kept getting in my images as i moved around. I finally went up to meet him and gave him my card and the club card as well told him to send me an e-mail after looking at my train images on my site….two guys New York born in Council Bluffs Iowa.  What a way to go…..naked, dreaming... with the woman you loved laying next to you……Christ saved all your luck for the end my friend…..please sign me up for that one Rory or drop a note in the comment box for me….   Like so many days this past year…..i would end up down at the tracks with Rory. This was the evening the sun comes down on the tracks that are situated east and west here in Omaha, Rory is getting a great shot  here at Seymore.
