Let’s see what an embed from Photoshop Express (online Photoshop web application) looks like.

Answer: this album cannot be embedded in a WordPress.com site. It (like many embeds here) breaks badly. That’s why this is not my main blog.



December Nor’easter

Towards Winthrop, originally uploaded by bwc.

Not all snow storms are nor’easters. The definition is a storm which is turning counter-clockwise and battering New England from the north east direction. Today we had one.

Here’s a few more pictures I shot.

It started early in the morning (the overnight) and was easily 5″ of light, fluffy powder when I began shoveling around 8am. Around 9, the sleet began. By the time I came in at 10, my shell was soaked from the wet precipitation.

A good day to stay inside and watch the Patriots. But if you haven’t cleared out your snow – its only getting wetter and heavier every moment. Good luck with that.

I’ve gone on a spree last night and this morning to get up some of my recent pics up on Flickr for the world to endure enjoy!

I’m really enjoying my Nikon D40. I’ve mastered all the semi-manual modes, and have been using some manual focus, as well, but I find the auto works the majority of the time. But I need to figure out the full manual controls, so I can gain control of my depth of field.

Tasty. If you click through to the Flickr version, I’ve supplied notes as to what each component is in the still life.

[note to Flickr: WordPress.com accounts cannot have inline css, and thus I had to strip your tags out of your default template.]

I’ve gone through some pictures that I’ve taken and done nothing with, and uploaded to quality ones to Flickr.

Highlights include a bunch of Greta as an older pup, a few of Gull Pond that didn’t make it up in the last round, and some of a trip to Gloucester, MA. Enjoy.

I had the good fortune to spend a few days of vacation with my family in the Adirondacks this summer. Here’s my Flickr set of the fun.

I also used the Flickr Maps options to geotag it. Very cool feature.
