March Madness

So, there goes March, and what a March it was.   Hope everyone is staying safe and sane.  I’m still working on projects, but they go slow, because they keep getting more complicated.

Anyway, nothing much else going on (like we need more going on), so I will see you next month.

And thus there is no “There” there


Since the death of my friend, Bobette Nourse, I’ve not felt the need to do anything at all…not just creative things, but anything and everything.

I uploaded the final chapter of “Hence” a day before she died….normally, this would be a post topic, but obviously some things are far more important.  I will miss her profoundly for the rest of my life.

Still, to step down to the trivial, here’s the link to the last chapter of “Hence.”  Enjoy.  It’s over six minutes long, so I understand if that’s too long (it would be for me, so no shame).

See you next month, and thank you for stopping by,

Eclipse 2017

I realize the eclipse happened last week, but I’ve only just put my computer back together after the move.  So here are some shots of the eclipse as it happened.

All of them were shot through my Nikon D70 using a neutral density filter, except for those where the coverage was as close as it got to total.  For those I just used the camera as is.  As you can see, most of the images look like someone who doesn’t know what he’s doing messing around with MS Paint.


Have a Dalek Christmas

More PhotoShop stuff.  I’m one of those folks who get major-league depressed when Christmas rolls around, so when the PhotoShop group decided that December’s theme was Christmas, I thought, “Well, I’m not going to contribute to that.”

Then I thought again…

I like this one.  It really looks like someone who knows something about PhotoShop put it together.  That isn’t true, of course, but sometimes looks are all you’re after!

The three trees were, um, borrowed from the web, but everything else is my own work.  Happy Holidays to you and yours, and thanks for popping by.

Happy Halloween

Halloween was always a pretty cool holiday, and I hope you’re having a good one. The stores have purged all their ghosts and pumpkins and put up elves and snowmen, but you know, Halloween hasn’t gotten the respect it deserves in years.

Have a good one!
