More pictures! Because I like you!

` And if you don't like them, it's because I hate you! ...Yeah, that's it!

` It hasn't yet been clear enough in the distance for me to photograph the Olympic mountains, though at least you can still see as far as Whidbey Island....


` And here's the view from the other direction - one where the Cascades wouldn't be visible in the first place!


` It must have been raining when I took that - the sign for
Jack's Restaurant looks like a plasma cannon!

` I'd have more up, but those are the only two that 'came out'. Why? There's a huge problem with this camera's LCD screen... it always shows everything way brighter than it actually is.
` For example, the 'black' image on the left looks like Butters curled up under the coffee table when viewed on the camera. (You might be able to see this if you highlight it with your mouse!)
` On the other hand, the picture on the right looks like a white blob on the LCD screen, so I didn't think that it would look like anything on the computer - a cause for many retakes.

` Since I now know that the information in my 'too dark' pictures really is there, this would not be a problem if a), I had my own computer back, or b) Phil would agree to install Adobe Photoshop.

`
As neither is the case, I will have to wait until I a) get my own computer and b) am able to afford internet service. That may take a few months....

Pics are nice, but you do sound a bit more "up" today. Is that so?

Hey spoony. You don't want photoshop, it's old news. My favorite photo editing program (by far) is MS digital image studio or 'Picture It'. It's much nicer and has more functionality than photoshop. PLUS it's not made by Adobe.

Maybe someone else can adjust the 'too dark' ones for you?

` Yeah, I'm doin' good!

` 'Picture it?' I had no idea what that even was, though my computer came with it! Weird!

` Hey, Galtron has a good idea! Aaron, want to try improving my very dim pictures through 'Picture It'?
` For that matter, anyone else want to give it a shot? I could hold a 'contest' now and then where everyone does something to one of my pictures!

All I have is, "Hey, i'm looking out of my window at THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS" which ain't half bad.....

Does this mean that you won't be around?

Yeah, not much to look at here, BUT on the other hand, my house payment is less than they were paying for that apartment! ha
