Selecting a camera from the past - Show your E-510 Images...

Yes, it's me again - sigh...I know, I know.

But why not. Another wonderful Olympus camera that quite a few folks obtained, was the E-510. So I'd (well, actually....we) would love to see some of your finer images taken with that camera.

To begin with, I've selected a bunch of images that were taken in Mt. Airy, North Carolina. Mt. Airy, the home of the famous television actor, Andy Griffith, was the model used for the fictional town of Mayberry. In fact, when you go downtown to the old section of Mt. Airy, you will still see Floyd's barber shop (The original Floyd is in his 90's today and still occasionally cuts hair). Included are some images taken on top of Pilot Mountain. In the TV show, Sheriff Andy and Barney often referred to "Mt. Pilot," as being a destination place and home to many fictional relatives. Well, Pilot Mountain is located just 15 minutes from Mt. Airy. We live only one hour and 30 minutes from Mt. Airy - so much to see there (plus some nice restaurants and wineries in that neck of the woods).

All of these E-510 images were shot in RAW and converted with ACR. All were shot in Aperture Priority Mode, AWB, ISO 100-1600, and the Zuiko 14-54 lens was attached.

Floyd's barbershop - the one that served as the model for the barber shop on the Andy Griffith Show. This one was there since the 1940's.

They still keep a variety of these old 1960's police cars (like on the TV show) to ride sightseers around town.

A scene from Wally's service station and repair. I didn't see "Goober" that day...too bad.

Sitting on the porch area of Wally's Service Station. Imagine what it was like, sitting here in the 50's, just gossiping about town stuff - things were simpler then.

Some of the typical stores and restaurants you'll find in Mt. Airy.

After entering the front gate area of Shelton Vineyards. Shelton Vineyards is located in Dobson, NC, which is just 15 minutes from Mt. Airy. It is the largest family owned winery in North Carolina and have a superb selection of traditional European style wines.

Thanks for looking
