Pingyao in her summer vacation. She likes listening to my stories and admires my experiences. She asked me to draw a portrait of her. She was reading my lil poem notebook. And i was drawing happiness for a young girl. Monday evening but you know how life gets. This guy told me about his wife who had passed away, and then followed up with the quote. Leeds and her puppy as well and heard her story. One of my favorite artists, who had a mural painted at one of my favorite places to hang back home was there by chance and i got to talk to him and his wife. The day was great, positive and i had a chance to thank the world for all that i have, and the chance to be there. Something along the lines of. We smile at a stranger or encourage a friend. The time away gave me a chance to really contemplate this. She brought me over dinner, and we talked and what not until the wee hours of the morning. She enriches my life. States and that we had so much luggage that there was going to be some serious sass. Judith, her considerable packing prowess and her portable scale, we got through just under the weight limit with all our bags. Panama, but once we sorted that out we were on our way. Panama, got through their customs, got all our bags and were past the bazillionth security check that i breathed a gigantic sigh of relief. We found a hotel room and hauled the necessary bags inside. It was once i was standing there in our hotel room, looked around that this wave of sadness and dread came over me.

These churches are everywhere, each with its own set of bells. Avoiding their tolling is near impossible. York may have its symphony of sirens and honking horns. We are very lucky with our apartment. Molly-if it makes you feel any better, hanging out by t he lake sounds pretty nice to me too. The guest bedroom is on the church side of the building. Great friend kicked my butt back into the gym today. It was hard, but good. Historic part of town. Jim says pointing at an impressive black bike standing just in front of the shop. It has been some time since my last ride, so i have to get used to the weight and the power of the machine again. Hopper pop up in my mind. Fatboy around the block. Wetter immer noch nicht viel besser. Schokolade getrunken. In between soaking up rays and an expedient packing session, we found some time for strawberry shortcake and vanilla ice cream. We were both slightly apalled at the cake looking like a bonfire. There were a lot of little flames on a pretty small square. Not to worry, the birthday girl blew out all of her candles in one brave breath. Chicken fingers and french fries for me. Willamette consistently produces some of the best pinot noirs in the world.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such nice comments. Your first task is to select the best images out of the hundreds or thousands of digital images you took, and then to edit and optimize those images. Lightroom you need to learn the programs and begin to gain proficiency. There are numerous books for this, so try to find the ones that work best with your learning style. As you gain proficiency, move into masking, retouching, advanced sharpening and black and white conversions. Develop good editing, metadata, storage, and workflow habits from the start because it becomes hard to undo bad habits later on. Begin to learn how to use actions and batch processing to more quickly process numerous images. The reason for entering contests is not to gain sudden fame, riches, and an instant professional career. Few, if any contest will lead to this, no matter what they promise. Instead, the purpose of contests is to start to develop credentials. Many contests lure you with the promise of exposure to those in the photo industry or the greater public, but in reality there is very little chance that this will lead anywhere, even if you win. Also, participating in contests will help you to see what others think of your photos. It also helps to see your photos side by side with countless others to see if your images truly stand out among the masses. However, it comes back to you to be the best judge of this. The images that are chosen will often confuse and annoy you and the other entrants, and it is often difficult to understand why the judges chose particular images. If contests ask for captions, descriptions or short essays to go with the photos, take time to carefully write them. Internet to find some current ones. Many of your photos will likely fit well in travel photography contests or the travel category of a contest. Also be sure to look at other categories that might apply such as people or portraits. Year, and newspapers. Be wary of contests that charge entry fees.

After she gently pointed out my rudeness, i apologized and quietly asked how the wedding was. From what she said, it would have been nice to attend but that was ok because they are still best of friends after all of these years, something you really do not see that much anymore. After our naps and getting back together, we remembered the doughnut and taco shop and decided to stop at both for supper. Donuts line of goods were good and fresh even though, like most doughnuts shops, they were made earlier in the day. On the other hand, i was not impressed with the taco shop. It was ok as a stomach filler but was not as good as i was hoping for. Sunday, as it was our only true free day. Francisco was a go. We finally finished supper and decided to hit our rooms and rest up from the very long day, especially for her. Francisco here we come. Signs, i remember when. Please enjoy the view. Downtown, they are washing their feet and nostrils at the curb, and praying in the street. Most of the comments and the video itself are whacked. Often, to a god or gods that you do not like or do not believe in, and in a manner alien to you. Its never what it used to be. Manhattans anytime. Looks like some squalid, third-world country. America going down the tubes. Alvin to be broadcast from tghe church tower. You have no idea just how much this garbage disgusts me.
