Yesterday was beautiful, woke up to 3 inches of light feathery snow that stuck to all the branches of trees and bushes. Walked over to the Model T and she fired right up, it was a day for cruising. I don't know how many miles I put on, and I started with less than a full tank but I ran out of gas. Luckily only 1 block from a gas station.
I stopped along the way and took some photos and did a few Live videos on Facebook. People love seeing this car out and about.
When I resized the photos the color and clarity really changed.
Lovely photos. You must have had a magical trip.
I must ask some camera and software questions as I am flabbergasted by the sharp focus and large size of your pictures.
Quite simply; how do you do it?
When I need to resize before posting any pictures, they ALWAYS become smaller. Before the resizing they are actually too large to be viewed on my laptop screen and I must use the cursor to drag the image around to see all of it.
What camera do you use and, perhaps more important, what is the default size of the image. How many megapixels?
What resizing software do you use?
Inquiring minds would like to know. Thank you for sharing, Bill.
I use my cell phone, set to 16:9 and 9.1 megapixels. I use http://picresize.com/results to resize the photos. You can adjust pixel width and height, jpeg quality and final Kilobyte size. I shoot for 2000 pixels wide, seems to be right to fill the screen on a desktop, but its a bit wide for mobile use.
What made the trip really magical was picking up this fine lady and taking her for a ride. This is my wifes' best friends Mom. 2 weeks ago she lost her 43 year old son to a heart attack. I am the same age. She said she had only been out of the house once before yesterday. Her sons death has hitten her very hard. She said that yesterday was a respite from her dark despair and she had a smile from her soul.
John, you and your T served a great purpose for this lady!
Just Beautiful !
Great photos John, thank you for sharing. Bill Harper and I believe in driving our Ts year round (when the roads are safe).
Now there's a good woman! Willing to bundle up a take a ride- nice!
Drove to work today here in Rochester. Started right up with no problems. Nice that sunset is now after 5:00. I can drive to work when the roads don't have wet salt residue.
Thank you again John, for posting your the photo resize web address. I tried using http://picresize.com/results and this is what I got.
John, That was a really good deed you did for that lady. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Warren, Pictures look great. The T is so much fun in the snow. I'm not sure I could handle an open car though, I'm too much of a wimp.
Looks like you had a great day. What’s that white stuff all around?
John thank you for your act of kindness to this lady.
This is one reason we should have our Model T's.
