Photo part deux

I cannot tell a lie. I cropped that photo on the previous page. More on that in a minute.

First. Are you reading this from Calgary? Yeah? Ok then, go straight here and enter the Basket Contest. You don’t even have to read the whole post, just go to the bottom and enter. Then come back and finish reading this post. Go. now.

Ok, since I am not running right now. Injured right foot. Doctor on Monday Morn.

Instead, I am taking some photos. There was a pretty nice sunset tonight and so I ran out of the house on Photo Assignment. Here was the total result of the photo session. Just imagine me snapping photos and saying “O yeah, like that, just a little to the left, PERFECT, YEah! move it YEAH!!!… You are beeeAUTIFUL!… to the sun.

Ok, just so you know what kind of process I go through to get the images I get, here is the entire set from today.

 IMG_8379 IMG_8380 IMG_8381 IMG_8382 IMG_8383 IMG_8384 IMG_8385 IMG_8386 IMG_8387 IMG_8388 IMG_8389 IMG_8390 IMG_8391 IMG_8392 IMG_8393 IMG_8394 IMG_8395 IMG_8396  IMG_8398 IMG_8399 IMG_8400 IMG_8401 IMG_8402 IMG_8403 IMG_8404 IMG_8405 IMG_8406 IMG_8407 IMG_8408 IMG_8409 IMG_8410 IMG_8411 IMG_8412 IMG_8413IMG_8414 IMG_8443 IMG_8444 IMG_8445 IMG_8446 IMG_8447 IMG_8448 IMG_8449 IMG_8450 IMG_8451

Here is the photo I posted the last entry.


Here is the same image, as it was taken straight from the Camera.


That’s pretty cool, what a little cropping and a touch of contrast adjustments can do. You think?

What photo above would YOU like to see featured? Hover over the photo for the Image number, click it for a larger view. Obviously I use all sorts of different settings on the camera to try to capture a gem, some are total flops, but some are pretty spectacular, and with a but of tweaking, can be made into masterpieces.

Now that I am looking at them, I Like 8389. Ok, you can have this one. Click it for a much larger version, then you can right click and save it. Let me know if you did though, ok?


Damn. I really like this one…


  1. This post made me laugh because I got into a 'discussion/argument' with a coworker this week over how she hates people who take a lot of pictures.

    These shots are beautiful, thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Oh. My. Gosh. My word verification was 'UNSUN'. I kid you not!

  3. I woke up to a gray, windy and soon to be rainy day. Your pics definitely cheered me up. Thanks.

  4. Those are really amazing pictures! Kudos.

  5. I gotta say, I definitely have a new thought process about how pretty Calgary is. Who knew.

  6. Looking at the sun causes eye damage. I'll be sending you my medical bills.
