The case of the disappearing photos.
It used to happen from time to time - now it's happening a lot more often. After posting my photos in here which I have hosted for years on Fotki dot com, the urls change causing my blog to have many blank placeholders.
This is not meant to be a rant - just letting people know why there are so many missing photos.
Unfortunately, I can't take the time to keep fixing the links.
Enjoy what's left. Thank you.

It does me no good to post such a poor quality photo, but alas, I am in another lull. So I will explain this one in hopes of making it more interesting:
I was in a window, probably 50 feet away and it was windy. I noticed the windmill was spinning like crazy so I wanted to use a slow shutter speed to blur the motion. Well, even though it was overcast I couldn't get slow enough shutter speed for the desired effect, but slow enough to make a crappy picture. Also, a tree branch between me and the subject threw off the focus I think.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

So why did I post it. Because it's the best one I took on 9/25 *pats self on back*

No it's not the same picture from the other day...same plant though...better picture I think.

11:09 PM ~ ISO 800, f2.71, shutter speed 2 sec., post: straightened, resized and sharpened (always sharpen after resizing)

Same picture, enhanced...increased color saturation, brightness, contrast, straightened, resized, unsharp mask and sharpened. and possibly some other stuff I don't remember doing, as I saw fit.

265 ~ Only 100 more to go!

One of my first attempts at a dreamcatcher, hanging in the doorway of my living room.

Sage

The sage this season was a little slow starting and I wondered if it was going to make it, but it seems to have done ok. I don't think it flowered though. I'll probably cut it way back after frost.
