Light, Memories, and Digital Imaging.

1. Skywatch: I took this image a while back and didn't get around to posting it. There's a trace of a sunbow in that upper right cloud. 

2. Weekend Reflection: This storefront scene is in Purcellville, around the corner from the postcard mural.

3. I came across this card that Lynn made me many years ago. This would have been from when I was hospitalized for an appendectomy. I saved it all these years and it still makes me smile.
"Hi Mommy. Smile Mommy."
"Love Lynn.
I love you Mommy. Marie and I are  being good. We are taking care of Pretty Boy.
To Linda From Lynn."
Pretty Boy was our canary.

4. Friday Bliss. I've been playing with Photo Apps and Filters. I altered the picture that Frank took of me in front of a wings mural.

5. For the picture of the Shenandoah River, I was following instructions to create an impressionist look. It didn't work out the way I envisioned, but I still like it. You can't go wrong with the view from Cullers Overlook!


  1. I like the photo editing you did on the Shenandoah River. It's very nice.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Hello, beautiful sky capture and I love the river scene. Enjoy your day, happy weekend!

  3. Super vivid colors in the Shenandoah! Enjoy playing with photos. I only crop or lighten the very dark ones.

  4. I like your treatment of the Shenandoah.

  5. ...what a great skies, my wife found a card that the neighbor girl made for us 25 years ago. Of all things she said that I was handsome!

  6. Your portrait with wings is fantastic! It is fun to play, isn't it!

  7. Your first and last photographs are wonderful.

    All the best Jan

  8. Beautiful shots of the sky and river. Cute get well card. :)
