Another anniversary month is passing for this blog, it has been 14 years now.  The site was up for renewal and I was going to erase it, the Pixelpost code is probably a decade old now, having been abandoned by the developers.  Mike Adkins has offered to try to convert it to WordPress and so I bought a 30 day extension to see if it works.  I\’ll try to post regularly these next few weeks and if you are still one of the very few visitors, don\’t be surprised if you get a parked page next month.  You\’ll know the attempt did not work.

I\’ve enjoyed the blogging platform, it\’s more like writing or singing in an empty room with a few folks passing by and pausing at the door.  In the end, you really do things like this for yourself mainly.  Or at least you should.  A friend once gave me this tiny book, a real treasure that I read from time to time, and it carried a message that your art needs a home if you are to survive and continue.  This has been a good one.

Here is another shot of a life size pottery piece I photographed a few years ago.  Last month, I believe, we were in Lexington and picked up some clay and I had quite a wait, which is a good thing.  Always happy to see small businesses thrive and that lends time to explore with the camera.

 Fingers are crossed!

We bought back our first home after being gone for 20 years, a lot of it has changed and we had some work done before moving into it.  But still is more like home than our immediate past home.  For documenting some of the remodeling, I brought the Canon SL1 with the 10-22mm lens out of retirement and found I still love it even with the wide angle distortion.  Considering what it does, the low cost, and the size- this needs to go down in history as a classic camera as well as the pancake lenses that go well with it.

Eating outside at the what we call the fancy Taco Bell, we\’ve experienced all the changing seasons many times.  Usually at the same table until later in the year when the cold and the low lying evening sun makes us retreat to one of the warmer tables on the edge of the dining area.  It\’s a nice place to go to, even in spite of the fast food fare, usually it\’s vacant and you could trick yourself in thinking that you were somewhere special, perhaps at a nice dining area hidden away where nobody has found it yet.   Won\’t be long until the lady is all wrapped up for winter, or maybe carted away for storage again.

Greenbo Lake State Resort Park
Greenup County, Kentucky

Here is a photo of the old schoolhouse at Greenbo during the recent snow.  I converted it to digital art with the app Prisma then to black and white with Snapseed.  Originally, the location was down by the lake in a low wet spot when I was a child.  I remember the year they moved the building, I thought that sounded impossible to carry it over the hill.

Here is a history of the park from the Kentucky Parks website.

 

 

Oil Change Day

Oil Change Day

It\’s a week of trying to get things done, today included an oil change and some basic cleanup.

not fight all the alligators."
