Homemade peach cobbler a la mode ... with homemade vanilla custard ice cream. OMG!!! The kids inform me I haven't made peach cobbler since we grew our peaches so it's been at least 15 years, and this is the first time for my youngest.

Thanks for the provocation +Jason Odell​.

"Bathtub Rings"

I was out at Lake Mead last week (working on a project). The "bathtub rings" that show water levels are more obvious than I realized. The lake is at all-time lows, and Las Vegas will likely be on water rationing starting in January.

More to come soon...

The Desert

I've been absent a lot on G+. I've also (finally) been out shooting a LOT this week - for a big project I'm doing, mostly for me. When it's done, I'll share.

Something I've been meaning to do for a long while is share a review of +Vü Filters. Since getting my Vü graduated neutral density filters, I almost never shoot a sky without them. I love them that much!! Yes, I also have Lee GND's but rarely bothered to use them. Someday I'll do a side-by-side comparison, but I just haven't had the time yet.

This photo is SOOC except for assigning a color profile and slight crop. It's for the project I'm doing, so it's a bit odd. You'll understand when you see the project. I used the Vü 2-stop soft GND.

Freedom

We exercised our freedom last night - took our very own fireworks into the desert, along with about 100 other people. This was one of my favs from the evening, a 60g shell.

Hey, Honeys, I'm home!! Did you miss me?

OMG, what a super-FUN wedding!!! I danced so much I'm sore today. The happy couple left early yesterday morning for Greece. They're spending tonight in Madrid. The groom's dad (my brother) is worried sick ... but hey, they're adults and both very well traveled. They'll do fine, I'm sure. If not, they'll have a story to tell when they get back.

(Note: I wasn't the "official" photographer, but they did get the gig because of me. In other words, I wasn't doing the posing on any "posed" shots I post. They were kind enough to let me back shoot.)

If you have a Windows system and can't get your Wacom tablet to work properly with the new Adobe CC, there's a good chance you might need to change the settings. Open Wacom Tablet Properties (Apps) and go to Mapping (near the bottom). Uncheck "Windows Ink" and voila! your pen should work right. That nearly drove me nuts!

SCREAM!!!!!!!!

Adobe CC is not compatible with my Wacom Intuos4.......................

I swear, if it isn't one thing, it's another.

So, I have to buy another Wacom now.... or live without.

Introduction

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. 

~Kahlil Gibran

MEET PAM

My passion is life, and I express that through my photography and occasionally through writing. And I happen to be very passionate ... about FAMILY (first and foremost!), life, friends, people in general. 

I'm a photographer who loves to write. I'm waiting for one or the other of those to become a profitable venture! I've been a bit lackadaisical about both, but I'm currently working on upping my game. I'm in the process of starting a boudoir business. Stay tuned for details.

Photography has been a passion of mine since childhood. Photographically, I have run the gamut from hobbyist to professional portrait and wedding photography to landscape/travel photographer. I’ll shoot (practically) anybody/anything anytime anywhere and have fun doing it! I have very few fears, so I have been known to take foolish risks to “get the shot.” I’ve threatened wild animals, climbed on all sorts of things, had rocks thrown at me from atop a mountain – all unscathed. I finally met my limit in July 2013 when I jumped off the wall surrounding the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, landing wrong and breaking my calcaneus. (Did I mention I was barefoot?)

If you like what you see, circle me! I'd be honored. If not, I'm glad you passed through and have a great G+ experience! If you love what you see, please comment and/or share. If I see you commenting, I'll visit your page! After all, that's what this social network is all about - networking and getting to know other people. I've met quite a few people face-to-face from the interactions online. You just never know.

Theme Page:

I started the Leading Lines Monday page, which kept me very busy on Mondays for about three years. I loved curating it, and I loved the theme. My co-curators - Andreas LeviDavid Murphy, Michael B. Stuart and Simos Xenakis - and I decided to end the theme in October 2014. It was bittersweet, but it was time to move on.

Photographic Things I Recommend:

Topaz Labs Software - use coupon code Boling15 for 15% off any purchase

Vü Filters - Available from Adorama or B&H

Camtasia - Best screen casting software for Windows!

Short List:
Very short list of people I most admire:
Helen Keller
Ludwig von Beethoven
John Nash
Nathaniel Ayers
There are many, many others, but these come readily to mind.
Bragging rights

Had appetizers and beer at Mundo's. Prior to being invited by a friend, I didn't even know it was there! Stone IPA, never tried it before - a little hoppy for my taste, but good. I shared appetizers with friends. Everything was fantastic! Chicken quesadillas, crispy calamari, guacamole - OMG, the guacamole and salsa were the best I've had in a long time!! Spicy and delicious! The ambiance at the bar was rather fun too. People mingled, talked with each other at the bar. A different atmosphere than at the Strip. Overall, a great Friday night!

Best customer service I have ever experienced - anywhere! I got coffee beans from their bulk bins. I've been grinding my own coffee for decades. When grinding my coffee one morning, the grinder seized up and started making an awful noise. I stopped it as quickly as I could, emptied the hopper and found there was a rock lodged in the burrs. It was about the same size and color as a coffee bean, so it's completely understandable how the machines didn't "sort" it out of the beans. However, my grinder was ruined. I cleaned it, but it no longer worked. I went to the store, took photos of the lodged rock, took the actual rock, talked to the store director. She reported it to their insurance company and, on the same day that I talked to her, she called me back to tell me that the store would replace my grinder. She also gave me enough ground coffee to get me through until I could replace the grinder. Frankly, I wasn't sure if they would do anything about the grinder when I first went to the store. I am pleasantly surprised. Smith's now has a very loyal customer! Thank you! This is how companies should treat their customers!

I was simply thrilled than when I heard Hobby Lobby was coming to Las Vegas! Their selection and prices are so much better than their competition! They literally have everything a person could want for crafting. Plus, they have happy employees because they treat them well, so customer service is always above and beyond! Their fabric selection isn't as extensive as you would find at a fabric-only store, but neither is the wait time at the cutting table. The payoff in time savings is well worth the sacrifice unless there is something very specific I want. For other crafts, you will not find a better selection anywhere! Holidays are busy though, so arrive near opening time if possible, and avoid Saturdays.

Dr. Dunay is, hands down, the best! My son required braces early because of a narrow palate. Dr. Dunay doesn't subscribe to putting braces on practically every child at an early age, as so many orthodontists do nowadays. However, because my son needed to have his palate expanded, this can only be done early without surgical intervention. It meant he had to wear his braces a little longer, but it was one price regardless. Dr. Dunay and her staff are very professional, very accommodating and, best of all, just a fun place! It was a great experience! I highly recommend her!

I had a fantastic time Cabo Wabo! Our waiter was friendly and engaging. I had the shrimp tacos, which were very good. My cocktail was quite strong (Adios - commonly known as AMF), rather unusual for establishments on the Strip. Prices are typical for Las Vegas. Service was great! It was a Tuesday evening, not busy. My friend and I had a lot of fun! The waiter even took photos of us.

Oasis RV park has great rates if you reserve by the month (or even okay by the week). For a metropolitan area, the park is quite nice. Most spaces are pull-through, which makes it much easier to park. They are also spacious enough. The clubhouse is very nice. They have dining and a store/gift shop, very nice restrooms. Facilities and showers are also nice and spacious. My only complaint is the laundry room. The machines are adequate (only adequate), but the light is on a very short timer so if you are doing laundry past dark, it can be quite annoying. It will click off after about a minute, maybe less. It doesn't allow time to transfer laundry from the washer to the dryer. There is a sensor, so you only need wave a hand or walk towards it, but it is still a nuisance.

I used to shop at Colleen's a lot. They had a great selection of furniture on consignment. They were selective about what they would take, so most of their merchandise was in fairly good condition, and their prices were very good. A few years ago, they started adding new furniture from the World Market. Nowadays, they have almost nothing consigned, and only new furniture from the World Market. Recently, I purchased a bar back from them. The price wasn't awful, but it was new furniture price comparable to any other furniture store ($1200). I checked it over well before leaving the store because they have a "final sale" policy. The delivery person hit the stucco bringing it into my house. "No problem," he said, then used a black Sharpie marker to cover the damage to my brand new bar back. After he left, I discovered that one of the drawers wouldn't open. I called and was told that I didn't get the one from the floor. They had more in the back. Because I didn't refuse delivery, there was nothing I could do. I had to repair it myself. It is a beautiful piece of furniture but very low quality, made of soft wood and not well built. Colleen's had far better merchandise - and a much better business model - when there were a consignment center. I do not recommend them and will not shop there again.
