Stayin’ “IN”!

Originally posted on Pammie's Place:


Since it’s mid-Winter and we’re getting the ‘usual’ for Michigan at this time of year, I’m not surprised at our temperatures (they can always get worse!). Having heard from a few of you about YOUR temperatures, I’m not complaining. We ended up canceling my special needs group last night due to below zero temps; it’s supposed to get much worse tonight (right now our temp is hovering at zero with -17 wind chills) – that’s why I’m STAYIN’ IN! At times like these I tend to let my mind wander to what I could/should be doing – like cleaning (NAW – don’t feel like THAT!), read my book? I’m almost done with the last installment of the ‘Alphabet’ series by Sue Grafton (finishing up about 25  pages of “I is for Innocent” – just reserved J-K-L & M). Knitting? Yesterday I finished up 2 more baby hats, straightened out a…

On last weekend’s trip to Charles Fort I brought my 50mm lens and I love the detail shots I’m able to get with it. Here are some little details from around the fort.

The year has well and truly started and I need to get on with things.  Some things are about to start and others have just gone by.


The first newsletter went out last week, and thank you to those that have let me know how they found it, I do appreciate it.  It was a bit light, and I am hoping that I will get more information for it.  I want to do more tutorials in it, have some for Lightroom and maybe some more advanced ones for Photoshop, will have to work on those.  I like the idea of the newsletter being more a learning and information thing.

The great blue heron’s flair for the dramatic is well known. The one thing a blue heron never wants to be is ignored.

They often make loud comments to announce their arrival or departure, or for apparently no reason at all, at least not to us.

Great blue herons seem to be quite fond of making any type of display possible, at any time they might choose. Earlier this week we saw this great blue get himself in a totally all fluffed up state for reasons, once again, unknown to us.

But as long as he’s having a good time who are we to argue or question the reason why?

Today I have the second half of the year and lots of the photos that I have taken in the last six months.  It has been fantastic going back over the shots.

It is 12 months ago now that I really hurt my back and was unable to sit at the computer for a long time.  My back has improved and it was interesting to see that some fine art images were slowly creeping back in, as I was able to sit at the computer again. I am starting to get right back into editing my photos again and seeing what I can do.  Some of the challenges that people run have been good to get me back into it, I have enjoyed the push to get me to try some things again, which in turn has made me want to go and try some new work.  Plans are under…
