Daily Photo Tip Abstract Fine Art Photography

GIF format files are used for some web-based images, but not usually for photographs. Though you could save a photograph in GIF format, it will tend to look 'dotted' and may distract from the photo's effect. (Mar 14, 2009)


Best Boy

A child's heart is like a Garden. . . Here a beautiful flower grows. . . A Heart that's picked by Angels. . . Grandson is the name they chose.


Daylight Saving Time

    The rules for Daylight Saving Time changed in 2007 for the first time in more than 20 years and were enacted by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This extended length of daylight will help reduce energy consumption. The new rules increased the duration of Daylight Saving Time by about one month. Daylight Saving Time will now be in effect for 238 days, or about 65% of the year. Daylight Saving Time in the United States

    • begins at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday of March and
    • ends at 2:00 a.m. on the first Sunday of November

    In 2009, DST is from 2:00 a.m. (local time) on March 8th until 2:00 a.m. (local time) on November 1st.


Five O'Clock Shadow

For more Shadow Shot Sunday see Hey Harriet


This is the original from yesterday. And, when I switch the exposure from -3.00 all the way over to 3.00 you can actually see who is there . . . . . .


I have switched from a desktop to a MacBookPro. With that you get iPhoto. This photo is looking out onto the Gulf of Mexico, shooting into too much light which made it too dark - not a good shot. Have no idea how anything works yet but I was playing around with the edit button and did some adjustments to the exposure, saturation, temperature, shadows, etc. I like it.

Always Spring Around Here

We had a few guests leaving the other night after a birthday party - the door was open several times and maybe we were lingering a little longer than usual . . . . and in flew a bird.
