Before I write anything meaningful — when has that ever happened — I owe a lot of you an apology. I don’t know how this happened, but I managed to turn off a lot of your posts.
It dawned on me one day that I hadn’t heard from a number of you who I read whenever post. I dug around and found that many of the sliders that control your posts to me were turned off. They are on again. I didn’t even know that desktop existed.
I have no idea how this occurred.
I think it happened with the redesign of Storyteller. Between the Automattician who helped me, and bouncing around the internet, some of you may have gotten caught in the switches.
There are two sliders. Of course, I turned them both on. Now, whenever you post you appear in my comments section. That’s okay.
I’m not complaining about the guy who helped me. We changed our approach a number of times in our effort to move all of my content including you from one site to another. We may have confused ourselves.
So, the picture is another approach to fall color. There is a lot of post production going on here in order to make the photograph look like painted art.
Before I go, I have to laugh at myself. For some reason throughout my career I’ve been sort of a hoarder. No, we don’t have one of those houses that is packed to the gills with junk and stuff. We just keep professional gear that we’ve used throughout our careers.
For instance, I have peripheral camera gear that defines many of the photo eras that I’ve lived through. In many ways, it’s just junk. There’s boxes of junk. However, I’m in a number of photography groups on Facebook. One is a collectors group. The members are always looking for odds and ends. Rather than toss this stuff, maybe I should try selling some of it on Facebook Marketplace, Etsy and Ebay.
Or, is that too much work?
That’s not the end of it. There are boxes and boxes of too many things. I think working through all of this is going to be my new hobby. Forget photography. Forget art. Forget music.
I’m going open boxes and get rid of too much stuff one way or another.
If I sell enough of it maybe we can buy more stuff.
