Slowly getting there, just missing the stars now.

Same photo of the Alexandra Fountain, but rendered with 20 different presets in Adobe Lightroom 5.5

A good way to do a visual comparison on here full screen as the first 20 slides in the current slide show.

So quick to watermark, embed copyright info, compress the images down to 1920 x 1080, pump them over to the server in Dallas, Texas and then prepare this blog post.

Those Photoshop Scripts I wrote last week are standing up well.

Total time taken:  18 minutes.

This was an amazing moment.  Can’t wait to see what is in store for 2014.

Must make some Christmas cards out of this one at my shop for this year.

These beautiful facades are usually pretty hard to photograph, so it was best to try to do the best before the leaves turned this year.  They’ve come up nicely in Lightroom.


Gargoyle Art

I remember now . . . this was meant to be Bendigo Scenic 365 when I was thinking that perhaps one day it would become a website, but as these are images 370, 371 and 372, it will probably grow to be a bit larger.  Let’s see if it can get to 1000 Photos.

Lovin’ these Presets.

More fun stuff to experiment with . . .

WordPress, because if it’s good enough for CNN, then it’s good enough for  🙂

It’s just something we “Oooot” and “Abooot” people down here enjoy watching over and over again . . . . . . Good Onya CANADA!!!!!!

Hope everyone back there is doing fine.

The voice of Foster Hewitt broadcasting the game (the then voice of “Hockey Night in Canada”) . . . my brother ended up marrying his daughter . . . how weird is that EH? Wonder how he is doing now?

This life brings its disconnects, when one sojourns to the other side of the world, and you just have to accept it at times I suppose . . .

Maybe he will find this Journal post and choose to reply . . . Six Degrees of Separation and all. Lets see if it works . . .

On this the 2nd day of September, I will never forget that day exactly 42 years ago when the Russians first skated out onto the ice for Game 1 at the Montreal Forum looking haphazard only to eventually whip our butts on the night 7-3 – having won tickets from our hometown in Cornwall, and to be seated at the Montreal Forum 16 rows behind the opposing goalie, whom we had no clue back then was actually Vladislav Tretiak perhaps the greatest Goalie ever.

To get a chance to walk down and to see who was standing there watching this unknown goalie during warm up (the goalie of the century), but Bobby Orr (out with an ankle injury for this first ever Summit Series), and to ask him for an autograph which he happily granted . . . what a dream that was back then for a kid!

Fond memories on this the 2nd of September from Downunder.

You know, this friend in Melbourne introduced me to MUSE.  At first I watched a video of them and thought “what is all that loud noisy crap anyway!”

Then she dragged me along to a concert, and it was then that I became hooked.

Anyway, the more you listen, the more it tends to grow on you . . . maybe.

Great to be able to share YouTube clips of the moment on here . . . and have a way to quickly reference favourite concerts from the past to listen to again.
