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.

Making room for the new year Monday...


Apple still hanging on in LaGrande

Cottage living

Heading home tomorrow. I've had a great time here in the high dessert but I wouldn't want the "Bearded One" to realize how smooth things go when I'm not around. This afternoon the kid's first de-christmased the Union-Pacific Depot, and then their house. It was an amazing feat to witness. Within minutes a christmas wonderland was packed up and stowed away. It was a brilliant operation. All the normal pictures and doo-dads were stored in the christmas totes and then traded back out this afternoon.

Before and After project 365

Went to Riverside Park this afternoon in search of a picture or two. The wind was howling and the river was partially iced over. I wanted this photo to reflect the chill in the air.

I cropped it a bit to eliminate some of the out of focus foliage and to highlight the falling water. I then added a boost layer with an additional "topaz" filter in photoshop.

Pause for thought

I absolutely love Wallace and Gromit... No better way to start off the new year.

Until next time...
