New Blog

I've started a new blog on photography.  Take a look at it here.

Photography Hacks

As some of you already know, Lifehacker is one of the best sites that cover a variety of topics.  Here's their recent blog regarding photography hacks.

The FIRST Photo

Here's the first photo on this site.  This was taken last night from our deck - quite a few sunsets appear this way in The Valley of the Sun.  This shot depicts a few more contrails than normally seen.

First Post

This is my photo blog.  It includes links to my photos, favorite sites, and other digital photo news.  Please place this blog in your favorite RSS reader - updates will be made when I'm in the mood.

Another Leaving the Park

Looks like another park model will be leaving. Aloha Park Model Services is removing #452. It's on The View Blvd - should be a great spot to place a new home.

I Saw Him, Too!

I saw him/her this morning as well.  Donna had just got out of bed and said (without contacts) "there's the bobcat".  I grabbed my camera (that now I'm more convinced than ever, needs a bigger telephoto lens) and headed through the back yard toward South Dakota.  Here's one of the shots -

Someday I'll get my photos organized online, but in the meantime, take a look at Chris's bobcat encounter of last night.

Here, Kitty, Kitty

Excellent shot of bobcat on Oregon Trail this last Monday evening.  Chris Johnson's picture can be seen in his complete album of kitty here.

Sony Video

I'm sure this has been around for a while, but someone just sent the link to me.  Very interesting, but according to the video, it's way out of date!  Click here.

African Bees?

Are these African Bees on Oregon Trail?  I didn't want to get too close.  Keith took the close-up picture.  I don't think he was on a ladder - just a better zoom lens.


Well, I need to mention this at least once this summer - the WEATHER HERE IS FANTASTIC (sorry for yelling)!  Yesterday's high was 85°; it's 75° at the present time.  However, it's expected to be in the low 90s in a few days.
I sure like it.

Other Geeky Links

As long as I'm updating the blog, why not a few more links?

There, that should keep you busy for a while.

Desk Tops

Take a look here for the five best desktop customization tools from Lifehacker.  Give them a try!

New Blogger Views

Blogger has some new views.  All one has to do is add "/view" to the end of the blog address.

I've put a link for the "snapshot" view under "Interesting Links".


The weather today is cold!  I think we're at 41° presently, and due to go colder.

Found a cool site that you can follow this summer - shows our weather via someone's personal weather station.
