Lightroom 4

Still gray in unsunny in PDX. Been playing with a new photo-editing app, Adobe Lightroom 4, and it is just what I've been waiting for.

Spring Sunset in Oregon

Sunset at the "other" Florence. Sadly, I am struggling to remember how to post...use or lose. Things are gonna change, more posts to come.

Winter foliage in Portland

The trees are bare, the hostas and columbines are quietly awaiting the warmth of Spring...now is the time for moss and lichen to shine in the grayness.

one milestone down...

...a bunch more to go.

With one major work-related project done, I felt a bit less stressed. I've found my creativity muted by work but, after the recent task was successfully completed, I've found my camera to be my friend again.

the long overdue nature walk

projects at work have consumed way too much of my time over the past 6 months. the main project will be ending soon, which is definitely raising my mood...and, like many Portlanders, the coming of sunny, warm weather has also bolstered my spirit

wishing you a prosperous and fulfilling new year

2010 provided challenges in many ways, but also opportunities to grow and learn. The coming of a new year always inspires a new sense of energy and optimism...and I'm ready to let 2011 begin a new chapter.

Happy New Year!

Exciting? Captivating?...

... not necessarily but guaranteed to be original!

Just trying to post some fresh (albeit mundane) stuff more frequently. So I'm cheating a little bit by posting from my iPhone using a pre-made template using FTP & photo-editing apps (yes, there's an app for nearly everything).

Take a look if you have time

sunny day on nehalem bay

Not terribly warm, but a beautiful day on the bay.

late winter sunset over nehalem bay

Planning a weekend at the Oregon coast, during the winter, can be a roll of the dice. You're never quite sure if the weather will cooperate. This past weekend, however, the weather was terrific.

This is Nehalem Bay as seen from the town of Wheeler.

After many attempts, I've finally color-calibrated my monitor! Thank you Nvidia for making a Windows 7 driver at last!
