Sharing a Tweet….

Below is a tweet that I wrote on Twitter and I wanted to share on this site. Please leave a comment below if you like. I would like to expand on how I take videos and I want to show different viewpoints while filming video’s.

Here is some Rocks/Boulders in front of some tree's in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Ideas and Thoughts for Posts

I have had in the past some and many thoughts about topics to post on this site and when I would sit down to write these ideas – they come across as half-baked thoughts, ideas. I would start writing down these ideas and I would get to a point where I would pause to consider where I could continue on with the thoughts for the post but I wouldn’t past this one point. I would leave these posts as drafts and or I would cut these posts completely.

I would toy with these thoughts for a few days or for some time and majority of the time I would just abandon the post ideas completely. These ideas would be half-baked at best and they would just be a waste of words and space on this blog and in general.

I took this in the late afternoon and very early evening in September 2014.
I took this in the late afternoon and very early evening in September 2014.

Though, I’ve wanted to share a fair amount of photographs that I took in 2014 and 2014. For some reason I’m would, having some lack of follow through about uploading photographs that I took. Part of the problem is that I don’t want to go through and update all the meta data that’s included in the Photographs that I took during this time. I know I could and can use Adobe Bridge to do this with a bunch of photographs at one time and I want to wait until I have more computer memory installed before I update and change the meta data on lot of photographs.

You could some of the photographs that I took as featured images or inserted in posts during the last year or so. Getting back on topic – I want to write real posts or short of a length of page while working in a document for a class but I seem to come up short on more positive topics to write about. If I write a good lengthy post that it seems a negative type of post which I’m tired of writing and thinking about doing; or I could be complaining or sound like that I’m complaining in some way.

Missing Photographs

I’ve looked through some photographs that I’ve taken over the last couple of years looking for a series of photographs that I took with my iPhone or Canon camera while I was staying at Lake Tahoe. I took this series of photos back in the Fall of 2014, apparently, I didn’t back up my phone with these specific photos with my dogs while Lily Lake near Fallen Leaf Lake in the Sierra Nevada’s. They were on my phone that I wrecked in the fall of 2014 and couldn’t and wasn’t able to use the contents of the phone; let alone to erase the phone before I was able to send it in after I got the replacement phone. Another possibility is that I might have deleted these specific photo’s but I doubt that I did that.

Another update of sorts

Hello All

Its been a little while since I last posted on this site and looks like that it would be some time before I would post anything of substance. At the moment blogging is not really at or near the top of the list of doing stuff – including posting photos that I took at Lake Tahoe, CA or anywhere else that I took photos at in my road trips of the last couple of years. Plus, I haven’t been to keen on spending the time on editing photos on the back-end of the site – like the alt tags, description, and so on giving the number of photos that I would like to upload on to this site. If there was a way to mass edit this type of info on a number of photos at one time would be great, but I don’t see how it could be done in WordPress.

Train Trip Through California

Here are some photographs that I took with my iPad on my way up to Oregon from Arizona. I managed a way to get to school and since I didn’t have my Canon Camera with me to take photographs the “next” best thing to do – is to take a couple of photographs with my iPad.

Granted these aren’t of the best quality of photographs which is kind of expected with a 1 and 1/2 old iPad.

These were between Paso Robles, CA and Salinas, CA except for the body of water in the gallery. Think I took the photograph in Oregon but not sure.

The Amtrak line that took these photos were on the Coast Starlight.

Enjoy – like or leave a comment below the gallery.

Panoramic Photographs at Fallen Leaf Lake and Lake Tahoe, CA

Here is a few panoramic photographs that I took at Fallen Leaf Lake, South Lake Tahoe and the north end of Lake Tahoe, CA near and above Incline Village, NV – along the Mt Rose Highway.

Sorting Photographs

Hopefully during the next two weeks I would be sorting and possibly adding some photographs that I’ve taken the last two years on to this blog. I know in the past I would post photos and don’t and I’m planning to now. I doubt that I would be able to upload all the photo’s that I’ve taken over the two years. Granted, I doubt that I would be uploading all the photo’s – fraction of the photos would be uploaded.

There are a number of photo’s that I took with my phone which I’m planning to put up as a few regular posts on this site. I may do a sample gallery then link to the rest of the photos; but, I may not do this – depends on what I upload to the blog.

I’ll be posting something when I’m done sorting and editing the photos.

What Content Would You Like to See on This Site?

Updating Photos

Hello All

Over the next few weeks I’ll be going through the photograph files on this site and updating information on some photographs – like the name, alt text and adding descriptions to them.

Also, during this time I might be uploading more photographs that I took while staying at Lake Tahoe in 2013. I’m still going through those photographs and seeing what to upload exactly to this site. In addition to editing them a little to look better.

When I added some more photographs to this site, I’ll be making a post along a sample gallery when I’ve made a new gallery setup.

Later

An Update

Hello All

During the 4th of July weekend I’m going to add more photographs to this site. The photographs would be on Pages under the Gallery section of this blog. I may work on a few posts that I may do over the weekend to come, I just want to see how much I’m able to write before publishing any posts – besides posting saying that I’ve added more Pages to this site.

There might be one or two things I may add to this blog over the weekend in addition to the photographs. I’ll mention something if I do or not add anything else.

On a side note: I have a few content idea’s on what I want to add to the site, but it’s just a matter of developing these ideas before adding them to the site. It’s just a matter of seeing if the ideas have any workability to them.

Though, I just may keep to blogging and sharing photographs on this site….

I’ll post something when I finally add stuff to this site over the next weekend.

Photographs of Mt. Shasta

Hello All,

I have added a gallery page for the time that I stopped at the Mt. Shasta View Point alone southbound Interstate 5 in Northern California.

This is one of many galleries that I will be adding to this site. When I do add gallery pages I’ll be updating the main Gallery page to show the pages that I’ve added along the what I say on the page.

Digitizing Family Photo Albums

This is a small beach and a dead tree.
This is a small beach and a dead tree.

A few hours ago I thought of working on a project that would take some time to do. That project is Digitizing all of my family photo albums that my family has built up over the years. I figured that this would be a way to keep these photos that were taken over time. After scanning each photo, I thought of doing touch up to any photos that would need a touch up.

I know that it would take time to scan each photo into my computer and time to do any touch up to any number of photos. I would assume that doing this would, in a way, keep all the photographs for a long time to come. By doing this I would need a lot of storage space on my computer.

Though it would be sometime before I would actually sit down and do this, since the photo albums are in storage. Once I get everything that I need out of storage and set up a workhorse of a computer then I would start digitizing the photographs.

I doubt that I’ll scan the 8 1/2″ by 11″ pictures, I would defiantly scan the 3″ by 5″ photos into the computer and archive them onto a DVD disk. I, also, thought about putting the photographs onto a gallery style site of some kind some where and have it password protected, so that only a few people can look at the photos. Though, I doubt that I’ll be doing that last thing that I said, giving how many photographs that there are in the albums.

I even thought about turning this into a business of some kind, I may or may not though. A long story for another time.

I may add to this post or I may add a part 2 post at some point. Contact me or leave a comment below if you like to share thoughts about this. It would be a day or two before responding to any comments on posts or through the contact form.

An Oregon centric blog…

Hello All

I’m in the process of setting an Oregon centric blog in addition to this blog. Why? You may ask – it’s mainly to separate out any content that I’m going to post into a specific place than into a catch-all cluttered blog like this blog. This blog seems to be cluttered and since I’m going to have photographs that I take in Oregon or SW Washington or talk about places in either place I thought it be nice to have a specific place to post about such things.

Its located here (opens in a new window).

I know that I can or should keep everything I post on this one blog, since I would add a lot of other photographs here and I had this blog for a long time – I felt best to have a centric blog for a specific topic – which in this case would be about Oregon and possibly places in SW Washington.

Leave a thought or two = if you like at the bottom of this post.

Photographs

Sometime the next month or two I’ll be adding photographs that I have taken and that I will take over the next month while visiting Lake Tahoe, CA. Not all the photographs will be posted, like blurred or otherwise out of focus or blown out photographs.

I haven’t posted photo’s yet cause I haven’t downloaded them to my computer yet and, I want to edit, sort them first before posting them here. I will, also, post them at Flickr and at 500px – links will come later.

Note: I will edit this post at some point.
