Thousand Islands - the end or the beginning?

Thousand Islands -  Flip Flop Girl

I wanted to end the series of Thousand Islands studies with this image, also from Thousand Islands Park, from several years ago.  It is part of my Digital Transition series, when I was making the change from film to digital.  It has become one of my favorite images. 

I made Flip Flop Girl on the same walk around the block as the studies.  I am kind of excited that I could find images, like my studies and the Flip Flop Girl, just by going around the block with my camera and giving myself the time to do my work.  To make it a priority.  It doesn't take that much time.  Why do we put off what we know we need to do?  I just need to do the work.

Thank you for the positive feedback on this series.  I have been asked what am I going to do with it?  I am not sure.  I like the series of ten, but I will be going back to see my in-laws again over the 4th of July and in September, so I will have to opportunity to add more.

Thousand Islands Study No. 1

Went out with my camera the first evening we were at the Thousand Islands.  The river was very calm.

Time for New Editing Tools

White Iris
All week while I was gone, it bothered me that I did not like the way that I had edited the white iris before I left.  Without access to my computer I could not fix it. Very frustrating. Sometimes it is better to wait than be in a rush to finish something. 

Also, this experience has made me decide that I cannot put off getting a new monitor and computer set-up.  I am working on a very old Dell portable which is extremely slow and unable to provide a good environment for photoediting.

Time to do some research and go shopping!
