Wow. I’ve been pretty terrible about updating this site lately. Only one post in all of August, and we’re halfway through September and I’m just getting around to making my first post. Sigh. And the bad news is, things probably aren’t going to change anytime soon. So, I hope you like this picture, is what I’m saying. Like, *really* like it. Hmm.

Hey everyone! This is the last post that you’ll see for a couple days, just so you know. So you’d better enjoy it. This is, of course, the Maroon Bells (and Maroon Lake), near Aspen, Colorado. You’ve all seen this before, so no reason to talk about it too much, right?
Okay then, have a great day!

So I guess I should start off by saying “Happy Valentine’s Day”! So, umm, Happy Valentine’s Day!
Right, so, that’s done. Here’s a picture from the Caribbean. No, this wasn’t recent, I didn’t just get back from another secret trip to some exotic location or anything. This one was actually taken on my honeymoon oh-so-long-ago. The land across the water is St. Martin / St. Maarten (it’s half French and half Dutch, you know), and I was standing on Yellow Beach (on Pinel Island) when I took the picture. We were there on a cruise, and we took an island tour that included a snorkeling expedition to Pinel Island. That’s… really the most interesting part of the story.
I usually avoid having people in my pictures. Because people tend to be ugly. And even if they’re not ugly, I think it’s really cheeseball when you see some amazingly awesome landscape photo with some person wearing horribly outdated clothes right there in the mix. It totally distracts from the scene you’re trying to portray, if you ask me. I suppose to get around that you could just have all of the people be naked, but then you have a different kind of picture entirely. So, I apologize for the folks who may or may not be ugly in today’s picture (hey man, I’m not here to judge – that’s your job.) But it was sort of unavoidable given the circumstances. Have a great day!

I’ve been sitting here for awhile now trying to figure out what to, you know, say about this picture, but nothing’s really coming to mind. It’s a shot of some pine needles, taken with a reverse-mounted kit lens. Uhhmm… Yup, that’s what it is.

Hey, you guys remember Monday? I mean, I know it was a long time ago and everything, but, do ya? That was the day that I posted a picture from my camera, because I didn’t have any other cameras with me at the moment. I said that I might post something that I got after I went back to the car to GET another camera, and that I would maybe post it later in the week. Well, it’s later in the week. And here’s a picture that I took after I went back to the car to get my other camera.
The sun was shining nicely on the back side of lots of the trees that were along the ridge, so it made for a nice scene. I didn’t get that nice illuminated ridge across the big valley that I wanted, but at least I got some decent stuff out of it all.
On an unrelated note, I noticed today that I’m getting frightfully close to having a total of 400 comments on this blog. (That only includes comments on this blog itself, not comments on my Facebook page, for what it’s worth. But it DOES include comments from me, which is probably 94% of them. Whatever.) So, I’m wondering if I should do anything special for whoever happens to post comment number 400. What do you guys think? Anybody care? Like, maybe a free print or something? It could be of any picture you see here. Well, it doesn’t even have to be that, it could be anything really, it doesn’t even have to be a picture I took!! Actually, yes, it does. Sorry.
