A journal of sorts.

I am an avid photographer with a love for digital processing. The Bearded One and I have become "Townies" once again and are in the process of transforming our suburban nest into a peaceful refuge.
This blog is where I like to stash things. An assortment of random thoughts, a recipe or two, a few of my favorite photos, and the processing thereof.

Friday Night Full of Tunes



Cottage Life

I am sitting across from the Bearded One this evening as I am posting. I am more than a little bit distracted. He has discovered music on his computer. He has his headphones on. I am hearing him crooning a variety of tunes.... bits and pieces... I just heard "beat it"...


Now he's chair dancing to Bruce Springsteen... How will I ever get this posted before midnight???? This is impossible... I think we are now cruizin' through the oldies. Leader of the pack just went by. I quit. The Bearded One singing with Connie Francis "where the boys are"  is a little too much.

Before and After Project 365

Trying to find something to shoot for my 365 that I could squeeze into my busy day.


Old stuff in the garden shed windows. The light was bad and so was my angle..


It needs a lot of help and I needed something desperately to go on the project page for today.



Cropping, straightening, painting with light. Whew. Got it done.

Hmmm... Pause for Thought

Welcome to "The Bearded One's" World...


Until next time...
