IMAGES – Mt. Pinos Landscapes (California)

December 29, 2009

It always amazes me how diverse the California landscape is.  Less than an hour south of this location is the Los Angeles basin where a sunny and warm bustling city exists.

IMAGES – Target Practice (Mt. Pinos – Calfiornia)

December 29, 2009

Like many of us, I spent time with family this weekend and we drove up I-5 to Mt. Pinos.  Ran across this fairly unremarkable sign which someone had used for target practice.  The sun peeking through the bullet holes really caught my eye.

TECHNOLOGY: Google Wave Notifier (Firefox & Chrome)

December 16, 2009

If you’re anything like me, getting used to checking one more digital communication device can be a tough habit to get into.  Many of us have multiple e-mail accounts, Twitter accounts, Facebook and lord knows what else.  So… when a little helping hand comes along to assist your memory — we’re always appreciative.

Recently two Google Wave Notifiers have been released, one for the Chrome browser and one for Firefox.  I’ve not used the chrome, but the Firefox add-on has proven highly reliable.  From your Add-On manager, you can change the settings which currently default to “check every 30 minutes” if this is just too long for you.  And upon initial installation, you’ll need to input your Google Wave credentials.

Just completed a job retouching some images for a client who had found these wonderful old portraits in her family member’s attic.  They were in moderate shape, but some had been severely ripped and damaged by a liquid stain.
