Ah Ha Moment
Sandias at Dusk I was coming home from photographing something when I made a stop at the local grocery store. I was out of storage so my DSLR was dead for the time being. I parked and looked up and saw this scene. I was wishing I had another card when a thought struck me.…
Two fires. One that I found in my archives. The other, I made using DALL-E AI. I bet you can tell which is which. If not, uh oh.
