Thank goodness for Photoshop!

Just for the fun of it I took a really mediocre picture from a dark and overcast day and did my best with it using Photoshop... Notice the ugly brown waves now have a slight green tint and the little rocks on the beach have a bit of color not to mention the clouds have more life to them. Now imagine what fun in Photoshop a person can have with a good picture to start with!

Thank goodness for Photoshop!

The color version

Just because Paul was curious!

It was close but the sun set just before the clouds moved in and took over the sky.

It was nice sitting on the beach waiting to see what was going to happen though.

It's always Spring....

...in Hawai'i!

Just another reason to go there in the middle of winter.

Happy Spring everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted much of anything lately... Between one thing and another I realize I've been quite busy, much busier than I really want to be. It's definitely cutting into my hiking, fishing and photography time. Guess I need to learn to "Just say NO to responsibility"! :)

Making Waves at Sunset

I was sitting on the lanai one night having a cocktail and decided to point the camera towards the sun and take a few photos.

The sky wasn't good at all for a sunset so I was being a lazy photographer, shooting from my chair instead of actually going to the beach.

Yep, I would say he has it. 

With a look like that he must have thought Paul was taking his photo!

I don't know what kind of bird this is. He was hanging around the palm trees looking for food.

Texas State Tournament.

This is my son Jonathan at the Tournament last weekend to qualify for the upcoming National Championship in July.  He brought home the Silver Metal, lost in the final round in overtime.  In the past 10 years between my 2 kids in Taekwondo, I have taken over 50K of pictures of them, and other kids in the same school.  I find it's very difficult to take good quality pictures of you own kids during sparing or miss all the good actions shot, but not on other kids!

I actually looked at the shadows this time!
