book 1681



I saw this man sitting in the sun and reading his book when I was walking back from the Quartzsite Annual Quilt Show (yes, quilt photos are coming!).  This was taken with the Canon SX10IS at 100 mm zoom, and possibly digitally pushing the zoom more .  I also took other photos, backing  off the zoom to show him more in his surrounds, but I liked this one the best.  I doctored it up in Topaz Simplicity and further edited it in Aperture.

Update 3-2-13: I bought Topaz B&W when it was on sale. Now I’m seeing what it can do. I know this is not my best photo, but thought I’d see if I’d like it better with some extra processing.

Backseat driver who gave just one too many directions and it was “off with her head?”

Found in parking lot at grocery store… at least she got out of the Saturday chores.

How did it get to be December 1?   I’m still in November themes!

Stopped for hot cocoa after our desert golf game.  A chilly breeze yesterday…. but a fun game.

This was processed in Topaz Adjust – Smooth and Flat and used the Aperture Burn brush to highlight the Thank You words.
