May 25, 2015  Happy Memorial Day everyone.  I couldn't find a good photo for Memorial Day, but I do wish you all a great day and give thanks to those veterans that gave so much for our freedoms.  This tree is in a little cemetery near our home, and there are actually a lot of veterans buried there.  This shot was taken in March, 2014.  I did find it interesting that there were so many crows in one tree.  "Each man is good in His sight. It is not necessary for eagles to be crows."~ Sitting Bull  Thank you for your comments and critiques.  Have a great holiday.  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
5/25/15 - A huge wind turbine blade, which is being transported to a John Deere wind farm in Gruber, TX.  I took this years ago but when Linda mentioned the plant near her home that makes these, I thought that you all might like to see one of these on a truck.  We were actually traveling in the Texas panhandle and were filling up with gas when three of these went by.  We got in the car and raced ahead so that we could pass them and I could get out and take shots as they drove by, but just a bit ahead all three of them had pulled into an empty lot to check that things were ok.  I put on my fish eye lens because I wanted to exaggerate the proportions, so this looks a bit longer than it really appeared, but it was huge.  I also was able to photograph a truck transporting one of the bases a year or so later.  On our recent trip to Texas, we passed a wind farm being constructed.  The bases were all in place but the blades were lying next to each one waiting to be installed.  We are seeing wind farms more and more, but it is often difficult to get a good pov for photos.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the three wind turbines.
These are memories for me. My cousin and I used to sit in a little restaurant like this with a juke box , bar stools, and read all the initials carved in the wood , or sometimes , right on the arborite tables . Easterbrooks, footlong hot dog diner is one of our favorites! See the initials ?    It is warm and windy but thunder storms are in the forecast.  25/05/15

24.05.15 - Pinkertons!  Walking to the local supermarket, taking the scenic route of course, I suddenly realised that everything was in technicolour, including me! I caused much amusement when I posted this on Facebook yesterday and pointed out that the t-shirt is 20 years old this summer. I bought it at a 5 day orienteering festival in Canada, the first 2 days of which were the Canadian Championships. My age class was won by another Brit, with me in 2nd place, so I treasure the shirt and have made it last pretty well!  The event was in Alberta, with the first 2 days near a place called Smokey Lake north of Edmonton. The 2nd day was in fantastic surreal badlands terrain near the dinosaur museum at Drumheller, and the final 2 days were on the edge of the Rockies near Canmore. It was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget
May 16...   It is amazing that pine trees can grow in pure sand. The cyclists however have to get off their cycles.
January 19.    Mist  Thank you for the many positive comments of my 1945-picture taken by my fathers prewar Contax
February 24.   Re yesterdays "Bus route to nowhere" several of you asked whether the bus sign is real. It is. But the bus is not going to England but it is a regular route on the beach going from north to south 12 km of our small island to the small town,  Sonderho. The tracks to the water is owed to a amber-collector driving to the waterfront. In summertime the beach is 800 m broad and many tourists drive along it.  On today's picture you can spot a bus sign near the top of the dune
Pacific Wren - lowlight shot in the forest so a bit noisy. Taken near Olympia, Wa.

As noted, these are my backup plus my working drives.  I strated doing digital in 2000.  The one on the far right holds 2000-2007 it is 100GB FW 1 and the libary is 22GB.  Next is a Fantom 2TB USB 2 drive holds 2008-20013 size is 1.5TB.  The G-Drive  3TB (thunderbolt) size is 1.29 TB that is my 14-15.  The little G drive is my working drive 1 TB so I do not fill up my SSD on my laptop.  I think our pictures are getting larger and larger.  Pictures are 40M raw coming out of my D800.  I have a complete backup of everything I have done.  Do you backup to a seperate drive?
