A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

Tripbase Blog Awards 2009

July 3, 2005 — Every now and then I play around a while in Photoshop Elements, learning more of its features. It has a whole bunch of filters, and the other day I found a photo we’d taken at Media Luna, a lovely lake outside of Rio Verde in the state of San Luis Potosi. (I say ‘we” because Kelly and I shared a camera on this trip and we don’t always remember later who took some of the pictures.)
So then I began trying filters. A lot of them weren’t interesting with this rather monochrome image, but here are are few I liked. This filter is called dry brush:

And next is glass.

The next filter has the inelegant name of plastic wrap but I like how the fish become emphasized.

It’s followed by solarize, which changed the leaf colors and made the fish pale.

And the last is watercolor.

Nice to think of cool water and little fishes on a hot summer day.
