Our own strawberry patch

With all the rain, we have no shortage of fresh wild strawberries. They were great on French toast. The dock picture is an example of in camera HDR with absolutely no post processing.

Portugal 2004

In the next few weeks I plan to add our 2004 Portugal trip.  Audrey and I, the boys and my parents ventured to Portugal in the summer of 2004.  This three week trip was the last time I used a film camera for travel.  My Nikon which I purchased for my 1986 trip to Africa was starting to show its age.  I used Fuji Professional slide film for this trip.  I normally used Kodachrome for most of my earlier trips.  The slide where then scanned on a 5mpx slide scanner.  They were then saved as bmp files, (I know that is not a good move, but remember that digital raw format was not out yet).    These bmp files have now been tweaked using Lightroom.  The written portion of this trip was from Audrey’s writings during the trip.
