27.08.15 - Under a Big Sky  This is a 2 shot photomerge panorama down by the river with the dog yesterday afternoon, what a beautiful day!
Wonder if this pic will get more than 24 views LOL - now there is no popular photos page or DCP group
8/28/15 - Wren with a spider for its babies  Thanks to those who commented on my post of  the room in the Marriott  either on smugmug or on flickr.  I appreciate the excellent suggestions about straightening.  I normally straighten every image I process, so I can't really figure out why I failed to straighten that one.  Sometimes it takes another set of eyes.

08-28-2015 "Loading"  On our recent quick trip to New Orleans, a cruise ship was in port.  They were loading getting ready to head out for another trip.  I couldn't believe the luggage that was on the dock and how they were loading it.  I can only imagine how long it took to get all of it distributed to passengers.    Thanks for taking the time to comment on my photos. Donna
August 28, 2015  There were many fishing boats in the various ports we stopped at during the cruise portion of our Alaska vacation.  I was drawn to this one primarily because of the brightly colored buoys on the fishing nets piled in the rear of the boat.  This was processed with a Topaz filter to give it some texture and a painting-like feel.
