It's been a long long time~ During that time I've taken many photos, had some poetry published, visited Glacier National Park, taught extra classes at the gym, and lost my iMac hard drive.
Yes, 33K photos gone with it. Yikes. Software retrieval doesn't work, so Apple and the Mac Store say the only way is a surgical procedure, in a "clean room." How much? Anywhere from $800 - 2000. Mmmm, maybe not right now~
Fortunately, I have some photos on Flickr, FB (although I found out that those are at greatly reduced resolution), and on Fine Art America. That will tide me over for a little while~
I've been spending some time on both Flickr and Fine Art America. It's been great getting to
know other photographers, sharing the work, and getting feedback. Dangerous, too, as I learn about other cameras and equipment I can save up for!
The link above shows some of the wonderful garden photos on FAA (mostly *not* mine).
I'm really enjoying getting out during rains (yes, it's been a weird Northwest summer, with some heavy rains and thunderstorms!), photographing my flowers, birds and insects. I love the vivid colors after a rain, and the morning light on the rain-wet subjects.
Well, the rain has let up and I can see the steam rising from the lawn. The sun is shining, so I'm sure there's a rainbow - a nice one - somewhere. Out I go!
