Admin posting!

The postings will be a bit irregular after Saturday or Sunday.  The Dailylife Wife and I are taking a two week Alaskan Cruise, and the costs of Internet onboard the ship is ridiculous!  So it will be haphazard wifi connected restaurants and what-not for a while.   ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 204

The King of the Backyard.  Or so he thinks.  If the birds let him. (1/2000s f/5.6 ISO3200 42.6mm (35mm eq:200mm) -1.7 stops Nikon Coolpix P7100*) *Remember to reset your ISO DOWNWARDS when you have been shooting at a high one… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

45 Years ago Today!

Man returned from his greatest adventure.  The actual walking on the Moon part was only rivaled by the fact they actually got home alive…   A great link for the landing on the Moon, and eventual return to Lunar orbit:  It is reverse chronology so scroll do and work your way up.   And the […]

45 Years Ago Today…

…Man reached the Pinnacle of Civilization: He landed a Man (or two!!!) on the Moon.   This is a good link to a summary:   You might have to scroll up or down a little to find the 20 of July section.   Current commentary:  (You can skip the Ad…)   One small step […]

Columbine from the Dailylife Wife’s flower garden. (1/502s f/2.2 ISO40 4.8mm (35mm eq:31mm) Galaxy s5) A different view of one. (1/542s f/2.2 ISO40 4.8mm (35mm eq:31mm) s5) Yeah, I could have gotten better/closer/more detailed photos with my Canon 100mm Macro…but these were taken with a cellphone…no wonder digital camera sales are sliding! The Official Gardener-ette: […]
