    Default 19 Apr 1995, Domestic Terror Hits Oklahoma City


    We are in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for a month or so. I thought I share these shots I took from earlier this year. These are from the OKC Bombing Memorial.

    A couple more.




    The watches were gathered from the blast site, each one stopped in time, a very moving display.

    Kevin, I remember that day all too well. It is just a couple notches below 9/11. You be careful down there. OK is not the best place to be this weekend.

    Why do the watches seem to have stopped at different times? Would make a better story if they were all stopped at the same time. I really like the first pic, but geesh straighten it, before it falls off the screen.

    I guess some stopped running at different times, but the front and center one stopped at the time of the blast.

    Caught up on your blog this morning. It's great that they build storm rooms at the RV parks, guess they beat the old storm cellars. Take care out there.

    The watch shot is so chilling for me. Guess some ran til the batteries died. So sad. I remember that day too well. Agree with Skippy. Straighten the first one.

    Ok, since I don't have straiting in my editing program, this is the same basic shot.

    Much better. What editing program are you using?

    Picasa from Google. Pretty basic, but it does what I need.

    On Edit: I got to looking around, I guess it does have straiting. Good thing to know.

    Picasa is good for jpegs. Am teaching the 4-H kids how to use it. If you want to get into more robust editing you can use GIMP it's free and there are lots of tutorials to help with the steep learning curve.
