Just look at it

This is a repeat of subject but with different editing done to it. I like this image better than the other that I made a couple weeks ago. This looks like a fairly recent model, possibly a 389 Peterbilt. I’m a fan of the big trucks but not an expert when it comes to accurately identifying the make and model of what I’m looking at. I like the gray scale image because I think it does a better job of hiding the washed-out sky. I can use a selection tool in editing to change the sky, but I did not do that to this image. It can be tedious to select parts of an image to affect change and I mostly elect not to do the work. There are new breeds of AI assisted editing tools that claim to use ‘smart selection’ and correction, but I haven’t tried them out yet. I have been working with chat.openai for writing and it is fun to see what it does, almost immediately, with what I’ve written in like fifteen minutes. So that’s pretty much the story on this image of the Peterbilt. I like trucks, I like going to a truck show, been there, done that and here’s a nice picture of a truck for us all to look at.

The heavy rain poured relentlessly, drenching the landscape in a gray haze. It was on this gloomy day that I stumbled upon a photograph that caught my eye, capturing the essence of power and strength in the form of a massive truck. This image resonated with me more than the previous one I had taken a couple of weeks ago. This particular truck seemed to be a fairly recent model, possibly a 389 Peterbilt, though I couldn’t be certain. While I considered myself a fan of big trucks, I wasn’t an expert in accurately identifying their make and model.

What intrigued me most about this photograph was its grayscale composition. The absence of vibrant colors somehow added a touch of mystery, almost like a veil hiding the washed-out sky. Editing tools allowed me to change the sky easily, but I intentionally refrained from doing so in this image. The task of meticulously selecting parts of the image to affect changes often felt tedious, and more often than not, I chose not to undertake the laborious task.

Recently, I had heard about new breeds of AI-assisted editing tools that claimed to possess “smart selection” and correction capabilities. Intrigued by this technology, I contemplated experimenting with it, hoping to streamline my editing process. However, I had yet to delve into these tools and test their capabilities firsthand. For now, I preferred the simplicity of my traditional editing methods.

As I sat there, captivated by the image before me, my mind wandered to the broader concept of creation and collaboration. While I had been working with chat.openai for my writing endeavors, witnessing its remarkable ability to generate responses and shape ideas in mere minutes, I couldn’t help but marvel at the boundless possibilities that emerged from this interaction. Just like editing tools, artificial intelligence had become a creative companion, complementing our human endeavors and pushing the boundaries of what was achievable.

But amidst the marvels of technology, I still found solace in the familiar. Truck shows had always held a special place in my heart. The atmosphere buzzing with excitement, the distinct aroma of diesel fuel filling the air, and the symphony of roaring engines never failed to ignite my spirit. I had experienced the joy of attending these events, soaking in the camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts and immersing myself in the world of colossal machines.

And now, as I gazed at the photograph of the Peterbilt, I couldn’t help but reminisce about those memorable truck show days. The image encapsulated the very essence of what I loved—a powerful, awe-inspiring truck poised with unwavering determination. It was a testament to human ingenuity and our perpetual quest to conquer new frontiers.

In the end, the story behind this image was simple—a passionate truck enthusiast finding solace and joy in the presence of a remarkable machine. The photograph was a reminder of the experiences I had cherished, the moments of exhilaration and connection with a community that shared my passion. It was a snapshot frozen in time, encapsulating the beauty and strength of a 389 Peterbilt.

As the rain continued to pour outside, I smiled at the image before me, knowing that my love for trucks and the joy they brought would always endure. It was a piece of art, capturing a glimpse of a world that I held dear—a world of trucks, of truck shows, and the unwavering spirit of those who embraced the open road.
