Eugene, what type of information are you looking for? Or are you looking forward to more pictures?

Hopefully I can purchase myself a new camera soon – my old got wet while in New Orleans…

I miss going around and capturing pics…

Anyone want to donate??? hah

I have $50 toward a new camera for you,
sorry I cannot do more for free, but maybe
we can work something out.

Yes, Thomas, your photos are that beautiful !

One hitch –
I want to use the ones you share here on my websites,
with the signature / ID you show in the corner.

Hard to tell who’s picture is who’s. Name above mean picture above or below? All nice though.


7 Maureen October 21, 2008 at 9:45 am

Gosh that was so wrong. Whose picture is whose.

Thanks to all of you for sharing your photos. I found them to be delightful. Thanks for providing this forum, Jason. I can’t wait to see more.

Maureen, if you start at the top, and notice Freda’s name, then scroll down, you’ll see pictures. At that point, you’ll see another name, then more pictures. This pattern resounds throughout the post and remains consistent. I apologize this was confusing to you.

J, this is so cool! Since we’ll be there next week, I’ll be taking more pics to share. But you let me know when and how many you want, as you still have some of mine unposted. Maybe I’ll do a slideshow vid, that way, they could be all in one spot?

Thomas T.,
I love your eye for color and contrast! Superb!


12 Maureen October 21, 2008 at 1:29 pm

Thanks for the explanation Jason; I’m not really as dumb as I sound here. Sometimes I have brain farts. Thanks again.

Thank You for that comment – I must admit, I did boost the contrast. I also messed with the colors slightly….


15 Allan October 22, 2008 at 12:48 am

The sunsets are beautiful this time of year….


16 Teddy Meeks October 23, 2008 at 4:18 am

Great job everyone. Love the sunsets. I have a goal of taking a photo of the sunset for an entire year… maybe when the kids are gone!



17 Lori October 23, 2008 at 8:31 am

Teddy, now THAT’s a job I’d like! Please, someone assign me to a task like that. I could get into it!

Thomas, that’s why God gave us Photoshop! 😉

Everyone keep those photos coming. Looks like this is the place to come to find the difference between a snapshot and a photograph!


18 Thomas Turner October 23, 2008 at 8:41 am

Ha, Gotta love Photoshop..!

Anyone using the Nikon D90??
