A view of Pagosa Peak from the Parelli Campus
People often don’t believe me when I say the snow falls straight down in Pagosa.
After 26 years, I finally took a picture.
I recently dropped my BlackBerry service to save some money. That means I’m back to a “regular” cell phone. In this case, that means an LG Venus. The phone itself, works. The photo quality? Not so much. But there are rare occurrences that it works to my advantage and produces a “happy” result.
Case in point.
It was a pretty cool morning. Having my real camera would have certainly been nice, but in this case, the camera phone did okay on it’s own.
Of my beautiful wife.
Tik Pic 1. Keys.
I’ve had the beginning of a post typed at least 3 times this morning. I’ve deleted all of them.
If you find inspiration, capture it. Don’t let the moment pass. That’s all I really need to say. God has painted the sky with clouds this year in an amazing and fantastical way. I’m count myself blessed that I have eyes to see and a BlackBerry Storm (BBS) to save the inspiration for later.
Last night, my wife was gracious enough to take the boys with her to her book study. Fortunately for me, her book study is very near a driving range. Of course I’ll post more on that later. For now, I just wanted to post a few of the photos I took while hanging out at the range.
Ever so slowly, I’m learning how to use this camera! I’m still composing my thoughts from the range, so look for that post this weekend some time.
I’m still going through the pictures I took, these three just happened to be the ones that caught my eye right off the bat.
More pics to come soon!
After a rain delay on Sunday, July 4, they were able to have the Greeley Stampedes firework show last night (Monday, July 5.) It’s the first fireworks show my wife and I have seen in several years. It was pretty good! We got to hang out at her parents house and we could see them just fine.
This was also the first year I was able to use a camera in which I could control its various functions; f-stop, shutter speed, etc. Being that I’m still learning the camera, I spent some time just playing with shutter speed. I left f-stop alone, set at f-8.
Here are just a few of the best pictures I ended up with. I did do a little post-processing in Photoshop to darken the background to full black (stupid street light… street light was also the reason I had to use a zoom lens).
Someday I will get better at this photography thing.
Yesterday, my wife and I headed over to Milliken to look at the Union Pacific Steam Engine that makes the rounds every summer. I didn’t get the best of pics but I did get some that looked okay after a little post processing in Photoshop.
Not too bad!
Here are a couple other good ones that didn’t need any tweaking. (I promise, one day, I’ll actually know how to use my camera!)
My son, Terrick, loved the steam engine. It’s too bad we didn’t know it was going to be in Milliken or we would have watched it come in Friday night. Either way, man’s ingenuity is totally cool! It’s an amazing piece of machinery.
