I continue to work with the image of Cory's shrine. The first details, in the post below, were very close to the original.

The images I am working with now have taken two forks - one set is darker and the other remains "blue." The details, above, are from the darker images.


Sue has been most gracious to give me an award....now I am supposed to reveal seven "things" about me (other than being on hold with the IRS this minute since I placed my charities amount one line down, ahhh. The IRS plays classical music - so far I have heard mozart, bach and a nutcracker suite. Yep, nutcracker).

i majored in early american history and kjoked that anything after reconstruction was political science. i almost went to graduate school in history.

as a kid I bred tropical fish and to this day love to go to pet stores with great freshwater fish. tropical fish is a dying hobby. very big in the fifties - see fish tanks godfather 2 movie - in the lake tahoe home.

i did not have the $5.00 for a ticket to see the beatles at the cow palace when i was a kid. i did see hard day's night in a twin bill with dr. no.

my favorite place to birdwatch is central park in manhattan; my favorite state to bird in is tejas, followed by california.

my first camera was a minolta, my second a nikon and my third a cannon. all 35 mm slr's.

i used to photograph sidewalks and staircases. in color, kodachrome.

if i could, i would live in cape may, new jersey, birding capital of the north eastern usa.

Thank you, Sue.

It's probably just me, but now I see a Jasper Johns-ish numeral - insert head scratch here - in the top image. :)

I notice the girls face in the left corner. After reading your text, I like to see it as if she is peeking in to all the wonderous moving colors.

I came and saw and lurked. Kind of. Speechless.
