It's time to unload more rejects! Blurry, mostly. I feel like I'm "getting away with something" by posting stuff that would ordinarily wind up in the trash.
I was so happy when I held this slide up to the light for the first time. Oh boy, a sweet (and early) view of the Swiss Family Treehouse! But… as you can see, there are problems. It still looks "just OK", with the late afternoon sunlight, but if only it was crisp and clear.
This view of the abandoned Monkey Temple would have been nice; the scruffy "plush" monkeys can be seen (barely) atop that broken column - they weren't there for long. I'm noticing the white patches on the column that look like bird droppings or efflorescence (minerals leaching out of the stone), but it is cool to think that some world-weary craftsman dabbed that on with a paintbrush because he just knew what to do.
The next two are from the same lot - again, they're not terrible, but the photographer didn't have a steady hand. The Friendly Indian Village sits near the banks of the river; a pet moose or elk (or whatever it is) stops for a drink in the area where worker's motor boats could tie up.
And finally, here's a not-too-interesting view of Fort Wilderness. (It's still more interesting than what is there now).
