I was out doing a bit of work today in Watsonville (actual paying work, non-photography... what we starving artists will do!). As always I had my camera with me, and I headed down to the beach when I was done. It was a cold gloomy day, certainly not fit for landscapes. So, I pulled out the macro, and... voila!
As for the desktop being fried, it is still in the shop. However, posting became less of a nuisance when I hooked up a mouse. (am I the only one that hate those finger pads?) I do miss Photoshop and Lightroom which are on the desktop, but I do have PS Elements on this machine. So, I'll post.
