a new START

I don’t know about you, but, I have no clue where most of my pictures are.  I shoot my pictures in raw format. Then I edit them in Adobe Camera Raw. I save them as .jpgs or tweak them a bit in Photoshop. Then I might make a folder on my desktop, or one of many external hard drives. Most of my CF cards are filled with old raw files, I haven’t reformatted them in fear I might be in need of the original.  With that being said, I have purged my computers hard drive of all pictures and am starting anew. I put all the files onto a 2TB portable hard drive, thinking they will all be in one place.  I’m taking a new photography class, that has a Lightroom component. I hope it will help me catalog them all in ONE place.  Wish me LUCK!

OH…I stumbled onto this, boy do I miss his energy out there on the court!

new VISITOR

Today we had a new visitor in our backyard, Mr. Woodpecker.

My husband called me into the kitchen to get a peek.  I have never seen any woodpeckers in our backyard.   I grabbed my camera and started taking pictures.  Our bird feeder is attracting lots of visitors.  Here are a few that stopped by.
