Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride cheres!

Calla Lilies to Cala Cakes - Buckle Up, Chere - It's Gonna Be A Bumpy (but fun) Ride!

For my dedicated and new readers - I'll be getting my photo editing software soon so that I can actually cycle out images I have captured. I take rather hi-res images and they are currently 'too big' to work.

And my approach to taking pictures is very 'on the spot' - I'm not into true manipulation of the photo - other than cropping. Photoshopping in things, changing the images is not my 'thing'.

I love to shoot my Canon Rebel dSLR as well as my trippy little Sony Cyber-shot point & shoot. Other than a college course in b/w photography, just seeing something that calls out to me is my 'field experience'. Unexpected items sometimes just seem to say "Hey...snap me!?" Each trip to New Orleans usually sees me finding a 'focus'. One time it was cracking/foxed paint on shutters, another trip it was doorknobs. Usually a gorgeous plant/flower finds its way into my memory stick.

Thank you all for your support.


  1. New Orleans drives me crazy with photo opportunities. I never schedule the time to just go there and shoot! I just may have to do that soon.

  2. I have swapped out the stock image for one of the very few images I have that is small enough for the Blogger dashboard to handle. This was taken in 2004 I believe, as I walked through the Quarter. I loved the colors of the stucco. If the Corel software is still on sale at BB today - it's mine. I have a gift card to save even more. :)
