Slapping My Head! ::

Yesterday morning I came across an interesting scene, shot a couple of exposures, and drove off. I grabbed the camera yesterday evening to download the photographs and, lo and behold, there was no CF card in the camera. I had had it out downloading over the weekend and had forgotten to put the card back in. I'll go back to the scene hoping that it has not changed after today's rain ends, but you can bet that I've learned a valuable lesson here. From now on I'll be sure that I replace the card after downloading. The really sad thing is that I had 3 other CF cards with me that I could have used if I'd only realized that I didn't have one in the camera.

A lesson learned!

A Cemetery Panorama ::

I've enjoyed shooting some panoramas over the past few months and I assembled this one this past weekend from several shots in Maple Hill Cemetery.

I think this is the first panorama that I've posted here so I won't really know how it looks 'til I post it and click to see how it opens up.

[update] Well, it looks pretty good for a 33" horizontal viewed on a 23" monitor!

Cotton Picking Time In Alabama ::

Actually the cotton picking is winding down now and started a bit later than normal. I called one of the local cotton gins a couple of days ago and made arrangements to pick up composted cotton seeds for fertilizing my garden. $15 for a pickup truck load! You can't beat that!

As an afterthought I guess a technical detail is in order. This image is from the little plastic Holga camera. The more I use this the more I like the simple little camera!
