“I’m Going to Jackson”

On our recent trip to Vancouver we visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge, where we found this bluegrass trio performing in front of the gift shop. When we first heard them they were singing an old Johnny Cash/June Carter number, “(I’m Going to) Jackson”…

"I'm Going to Jackson"

We got married in a fever,
hotter than a pepper sprout.
We been talking ’bout Jackson,
ever since the fire went out,
I’m going to Jackson…

Seemed a little strange to be hearing good Southern US bluegrass in the far north country, but we didn’t hesitate to sing along!

I played with the sliders a little bit here to give it a more “old-timey” look (that’s how they talk down in Jackson). I processed this in Paint Shop Photo Pro X3, using Topaz Adjust. In Topaz, I used the Psychedelic preset, but adjusted the saturation and detail sliders somewhat.

Sorry for the long dry spells between posts lately, but we’ve been working on a major life change. I’ll be spilling the beans in a week or so, but there’s a good reason my photography has taken a back seat for the moment. I miss it and will get back to it as soon as possible, with a lot of new territory to cover (hint!).
