I touch up photos so people look as good in their photographs as they did in real life.
~ Scott Kelby (American – Photographer  / Born: July 7, 1960)

World Chocolate Day

My knowledge of “touching up” photographs is very minimal.  I crop and change the exposure or saturation, but have just learned to remove unwanted objects.  Adding text with FOTOR for my daily quotes is the most I’ve managed.  Maybe this is the year I learn to do more editing?

When we are flat on our backs there is no way to look but up.

International Kissing Day

So how should we celebrate International Kissing Day during the COVID-19 Pandemic?  Luckily, here in Ontario we can kiss the people in our circle of 10.  So grab your circle of 10, give each of them a hug and a kiss.  BUT maintain social distancing for everyone outside of your circle.  And when you’re not able to maintain social distancing wear a mask.

Painting directly from nature is difficult as things do not remain the same;
the camera helps to retain the picture in your mind.
~ Theodore Robinson (American – Artist July 3, 1852 – April 2, 1896)

International Plastic Bag Free Day

Stay Out of the Sun Day

Many painters use cameras to capture scenes for them to be able to paint at a later time.  I cannot paint.  So my camera is my paint brush, capturing moments in time and enabling others to see my view of reality, memories, and dreams.

The camera is my tool.
Through it I give a reason to everything around me.

World UFO Day

Some quotes are worth repeating.  Remembering our cottage vacation with friends last year and the night of July 1st at the beach.

With the number of COVID-10 cases being so high in the USA it is possible we won’t be able to travel to Texas for the winter of 2020-2021.  There is a very real possibility that the Canada-USA boarder will remain closed for the remainder of the 2020 year.  We’re looking into the option of selling our trailer there at a loss to prevent paying rent over the next year.
