Re: Baby step in PS: Ta Dah!

Set up the tablet this morning and put the mouse aside. Started a tutorial; let's see where this goes. Many thanks. Matt Eh, forget the tutorial. With a tablet is all about getting used to it.

Re: All U Can Eat Crawfish Buffet

Agree with Matt (an Excess of Egrets :D ); I like the reflection in the water at the base. If you had not told us that there is a mess framed out I'd never have guessed, and that's part of the magic of framing, in, or out. The other challenge, DOF, creates a different conundrum; if you lower your sh...

Re: Kick

Re: Logging Show here in Sunny Sequim

My favorite is the person with the hat over the face in the sun. At first all you see is the hat (backlit of course). (OK)

Re: Rusty stuff

Bodie ghost town, a treasure full of old rusty stuff Oh, Bodie! "Goodbye God, I’m going to Bodie" We were there three, maybe four times, nearly destroying the car getting there over some 13 miles of the worst dirt road ever. We loved the place of "arrested decay." Wish I could go back. Thanks for t...
