Some Things are Growing Fast

I'll basically see the entire mushroom life-cycle in the less than 3 weeks I'm here....in the meantime, I don't think that my cherry tomato seedlings even grew a millimeter...

Spring Time in Greater Cincinnati

Beautiful day today...some shots from this afternoon's little trip to the Cincinnati Flower Show which is appropriately enough...in Loveland.

I think these were probably already in the park...

I Think This was July, 2005

But like the previous post, these are scanned slides...and unlike digital files from my digital camera, they don't necessarily come with dates attached...

Biotopo del Quetzal

These are from way back...scanned slides. Still just looking through all the photos I've taken over the years...holy cow there is a lot I totally forgot about.

Something made me think of my photos and slideshows on photobucket.com (individual links on the right) and I realized I never linked to my Guatemala album...well I corrected that now...which got me looking through a massive folder of slides I scanned back then that I'd copied to the new computer (because someday I'll have heaps of time to organize ya ya ya...) and now with photoshop on a computer with the memory to handle the massive scans...here are a few I touched on this evening. I think only the bromeliad has a version in the slideshow...

Anyway, a really neat place up in the Coban cloud-forest is the Biotopo del Quetzal. We went there two or three times and actually managed to see a Quetzal on one of those trips.

Continuing With the Past

Still going through old photos. This was taken during the week-long photography workshop to learn photoshop I took at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops back in 2006. Our first outing was to Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument...here is one of the photos.
