I have a few things to mention in today’s post. First, I decided I’m not waiting anymore for something to happen and I’m going to take a risk and try to make them happen. I’m heading north tomorrow, and after a few days in the bay area and Sacramento area, I’ll be moving to Oregon. I don’t have a job lined up and have hardly any money in my pocket, so don’t be surprised when I start asking you guys if you’re interested in buying prints soon. Wish me luck, pray, and send good vibes my way. I certainly need all the help I can get with this move.
Second thing I want to mention is Superimpose is free just for today. If you’re interested in blending images together, this one is worth a look. Check it out here.
Now, on to the image for today. For a little context, this large kiln is out in the middle of a redwood forest, about a half mile hike from the campgrounds. From the website:
In late 19th century, these ovens supplied a thriving industry: Limestone was ‘‘cooked’’ out of the rocks—a real stone soup—for use in building materials.
I believe they made mortar out there for the SF bay area if I remember correctly. It was almost impossible to get a wide shot of how large these things are because of the caution tape around them. If there wasn’t another hiker nearby, I’d have done what I had to do to get the shot
