I have one more order out (the one from Paradise Memory Co ) and I will have all my junk in. (Thanks Mickey, for the use of your mail box) The one bad thing about being a boon-docker is that it is very hard to get a place where you can get all kinds of mail ( USPS, Fedex, UPS and so on). Yes, you can have it sent to your mail-service and have them forward it, but that causes a delay in getting your stuff and cost you more shipping. This is why I am so happy to have a friend here in Yuma who don’t mind me getting my junk sent to her house, it is so helpful.

OK, I can’t help myself now ………… here is another stacked image, I am still practicing 🙂 This little flower is easily cover over with a dime and this one has about 17 images stacked. One of the things I need to learn how to do is to batch process in Adobe Camera Raw ( ACR ). I processed each image in ACR one at a time and then loaded them into Photoshop which can obviously handle stacks pretty well. Any of you guys out there do this kind of stuff, feel free to jump in with a comment, I could use any good advice, and I will try the bad, LOL! I think maybe it will just take some time to get use to the process and to figure out a couple of the automated steps (at least I hope there is some automated steps). Be sure to click on this and look at the larger image. This little flower lived just a few feet from my RV on a little bush (with many more just like it) and I cut this one off and set up my macro rig in the RV. The background is OK by me , but I would have liked to have had a little more variety of color to it. We’ll figure that out another time 🙂 I set this up in front of one of my windows so I could have some of the colors from outside, but didn’t get the mix that I wanted but it’ll do.
The next area I am in will be interesting to see whether it will be a birding area or a macro area. I kind of like doing a little of both because that should about always give me something to shoot, wherever I am at. Of course with a camera and a little imagination there is always something to shoot but I have my rathers.
OK, time to get out of the RV for a bit.
Good news, all my stuff came in today and my friend got his work done on his RV, so tomorrow we are on the road. We will move north of here for a ways, somewhere around Quartzsite AZ. I’ll post a link to the new location tomorrow or the next day. I am kind of glad to be leaving here, this area is as dusty as can be, even more than most southwestern boon-docking areas.
Exercise was a walk today, about 3 miles I would guess. A good walk at a fair pace. It was very peaceful out this evening, I got started late in the evening, about 5:30pm and it was dark by the time I got back.
