Well, Good news is, they finally pinned down a almost positive diagnosis (close as that gets with such stupid diseases, alas) LUPUS! yay me!! well, I keep telling myself that's better than a kick in the rheumatoid arthritis.
Bad news, probably going to have to focus a lot more on self than internet presence, at least until everything's tied up in a neat little bow. I keed I keed, until all the ducks are near the same pond. The heck with neat little rows. We color OUTSIDE the box!! Am I right, or am I right?!!!

How hard can it be to find a hemp made camping tent? Not sure.. still looking XD
I've got nothing to do but wait around for answers, as I'm uploading software
aka, paint drying ;0)

This, is an amazing album. If you want to laugh hard and cringe even more. You have got to see everyones version of "reckless" for day 2 of reveals
DAY TWO of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt! Sponsored by Adobe!

What is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days.
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*RECKLESS*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways.
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills,
gives you a huge audience,
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes.
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+.
Support, encouragement friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed.
We become a family over the course of the month.

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited.
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images
and put thought into them and tried their best.
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*RECKLESS*" album,
1 item seen in 212 different ways.

Well, haven't had much time for editing my photos of the lunar eclipse yet,  between hunting for work and trying to stay ahead of all the hectic day to day stuff of late. But here's one that I do like a lot, lightly edited. (and noise pounded back on, lol)
