"It is the unhappy fate of the scientist today that he must play the role of Cassandra in the body politic, sending his fellow men to bed with nightmares in the hope to be heard in time."

Wierd.

Some strange camera settings?

Just iPhoto abuse. Rather than cleaning up my pictures in postprocessing I like to mess them up a bit.

My first reaction was "huh, old neg film and a scan from an old print...", due to the color rendition ...

The "Main Street, Richland Springs TX" is highly reminiscent of a fairly famous painting by an American in the 1930s. I don't remember his name nor the name of the private museum in (next to) the City of London in which the painting hangs.

Aha! Goggle found the museum with no difficulty whatsoever.
The Courtauld Institute of Art
has one of the most tasteful collections anywhere. You to be congradulated in your excellent taste in iPhotoing.
