The End

As I was concluding the end for me here on blogspot, my man was setting up the kids computer and bookmarking this site for them to view. No one in my family wants me to quit this. Nor do I really. I checked out some other sites once again, but nothing really compares and I am very familiar with this site. So... my man added Google Ad Sense, which hopefully will pay for extra storage over a years time. (Hint: click on the ad links on the side to help me!) ;) So... My plan is to go back and "draft" everything from before I stated watermarking my pictures. Slowly, I will add them back on, once completed with a watermark. That's it!

Well, the end of the road has come here. I am unable to upload pictures because I have no more space in cyberspace. This is my message: "You have exceeded your total photo upload quota." I have to pay for it now. I already did that last year and right now I am trying to be very frugal with my money. So... I am going to explore other options. I am thinking something on Flicker. I may look into Wordpress. Or I just might ask my man to create me my own site. We'll see...

I finally got some new software, yesterday - Elements 6. I am already feeling weird about it. The box sits unopened on my desk. I love the pictures I've seen from those who use Elements 6. But I also like the fact that my pictures are pretty much untouched. Just feels real to me. Although getting arty and different looks will be fun too. So again, we'll see...

I am probably going to go back and delete my pictures that are not watermarked. When I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago, I saw two pictures that looked just like two of mine. I had to study them for awhile. I concluded they were not but who knows what good software can do. They were being sold for a high price might I add! So, I would feel better taking my old stuff down and leaving up what I have watermarked. I hope to one day have a future in this so I'd rather preserve what is mine.

If you'd like to see what I do from here, leave me a comment and I will be in touch once I start fresh! Thanks for visiting me!

Olema Flower

No, that's not the name of this flower, although I am very curious what exactly it is. It was big and beautiful, alongside a white picket fence in Olema, CA; on our drive norht on PCH 1.

Nature's Star

I couldn't tell you what type of tree this is from... but it's the coolest thing ever! I love the star in the middle of it.

(I broke my picture a day goal. Life has been dragging me backwards, upside down, and sideways; I've had no time to enjoy this outlet. I have many to pictures to post, and I could backdate them, but honestly, I don't have the time right now. So, now that I've broken my goal, I will consider this a picture when I can blog!)
