"Funnel Cakes and Cotton Candy"

Two vendors setting up on Friday evening for the next day's 52nd running of the "Elloree Trials" in Elloree, South Carolina.  11 races featuring thoroughbreds and quarter horses.  Perfect weather on Saturday for the races.

I thought the author behaved in a professional manner and the issue was resolved satisfactorily.  Perhaps a lesson for many of us.

It's not an ideal solution, but then non-invasive BGL monitoring has proved to be a tough problem to solve.

This is from a recent trip to Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina.  Its an absolutely phenomenal place to visit for the plants and an amazing collection of outdoor sculpture.

As I was walking around the grounds I spied a small pond and couldn't resist the combination of reflections, leaves and the wind and water currents that provided this view.  Yep, that's lots of pollen you see on the water surface as well.

More improvements to the Nik Collection are now available!

In our continuing effort to make the Nik Collection by Google an amazing experience for all users, we're releasing Version 1.111. This update brings more bug fixes and performance improvements and will be installed in the background so long as your host applications (Lightroom, Photoshop, or Aperture) aren't currently running.

To check which version of the Nik Collection you currently have installed, open up a photo in any of the Collection plug-ins and click on the Nik logo on the top right of the display. That will pop up the product's About screen with the version listed there.

Really wish when you do these auto updates, you retained the user preferences. Real tired to have the change the setting every time you decide to fix something.

Time for us to ask what's going on and how can we help.
 
I Am a Ukrainian

I am blown away by how little news coverage is being given to Ukraine right now. I could care less about the Winter Olympics when things like this are happening around the world. A shift in priorities is needed!

My thoughts go out to those in Kiev...

and those in Venezuela...

Story
Introduction
Photography and road cycling as my main pastimes.  Learning is continual.  Science is our attempt to understand the universe and predict behavior.

Photography enables active seeing for me and the ability to  capture the moment hopefully expressing what I see and feel.

Road cycling puts me in touch with a dynamic world where I feel alive and part of the living, breathing universe.
