Gary and I had a great walk around the boardwalk in White Memorial park. Unfortunately the only time we had free that day was in the middle of the day and it was hot. And, the wildlife was under cover so few birds and other animals. However, plenty of foliage and of course, the wild “photographer” was a good subject from time to time. Here he’s shooting a field of ivy. His shot turned out great, mine sucked so I’m posting one of his back instead.
All in all we had a fun time. Yes, we were sweaty when we got home but it’s great fun to go out photographing with a friend, especially one as knowledgeable and generous and kind as Gary Sharp. I learned a huge amount just watching him work and of course, he had plenty of suggestions to help me make better pictures.
Cats in Sinks… right, you guessed it.

Serious Editing in iPhoto 5 is an eBook that shows, step by step, how to use iPhoto’s built in image editing tools to correct flawed photographs and create various visual effects. Looks quite good actually.
Randy Gloss, a member of the percussion group Hands On ‘Semble has a great pandeiro lesson online: Frevo and Marcha for Pandeiro. It is described well, has full notation, and QuickTime movies showing hand technique. The rhythms are fantastic and worth learning and if I can every learn how to hold a pandeiro I might actually practice this.
This is my granddaughter Erin. We had a family “do” yesterday to welcome our friend Gary who’s visiting from Oregon. Erin has seen him each year since she was born and even though she sees him once a year she remembers him well.
We have a big rock in our backyard (anyone want it, free if you come get it) that Erin can now climb up on on her own. It gets her about four feet higher than she’d be otherwise and if you’re a little kid (4 years old) the difference in view is new and fun and addictive. She was up and down on and off this rock all day and Gary and I documented it well.
Here’s she’s feeling quite proud of herself being up there on her own.
