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.

Tripbase Blog Awards 2009

June 20, 2005 — A couple of days ago, Kelly and I went to a talk given by a photographer we know. Bill Ellzey has been a professional photographer for over 30 years, and his eye for natural beauty is vivid. One of his photos has even made the cover of National Geographic, something of a pinnacle for photographers.

We both got inspired from the talk. I love playing around with photographs in Photoshop Elements, which is the much cheaper, simpler, and user-friendly version of the venerable program Photoshop. So yesterday I decided to do have some fun.¬† Earlier this month¬† I posted a photo of a waterslide at a hot springs in Ciudad Camargo, Chihuahua. Here’s what I ended up with after cropping, applying a filter, brightening the picture, and adding a frame:

One thing Bill said was that if you have a strong horizontal line, putting it midway between the top and the bottom of the picture is almost never the best choice. I hadn’t thought of that, but I tried different places for the line and could see it for myself.
