Software Tutorials

My friend
Carol Leigh
called today
with some info
on a couple of
the Topaz filters.

The video link
suggested using
Simplify and
then Impression.

My attempt using a
photo taken in the
yard today is not
quite what I
intended, but am
posting anyway.

Dogwood by the Merced River

We spent 5 days
in Yosemite Valley

The weather was
wonderful and

the name changes
to favorite places
was grand,

Time to work on
getting my images

Stayed at Curry

Warm, beautiful
weather. Glacier
Road was open

drove home in
the rain.

 Roses Like Rain.

Quick walk in the garden
to check the roses while it
was sprinkling softly.
Amazing how rain makes
things so beautiful.
