Asticou Azalea Garden

The day job has taken me to Bar Harbor, Maine this week. It is a wonderful respite from the 100 plus degree weather at home. Today, I was able to drive to a wonderful little azalea garden near the Northeast Harbor. It was like stepping back to spring. Aahh!

Painted Bunting

Yesterday, a painted bunting visited the feeder and was nice enough to hang around while I got my camera. They are just beautiful!

Digital Art

I have found a new obsession. I have started creating pictures with Photoshop. I stumbled upon the magazine Digital Studio by Somerset in a bookstore and have started playing around. There are quite a few people making amazing art with their computers. I already had Photoshop, but had only used it to crop my photos. I had never though to make things from scratch. I can also take my photos and mix them up in new and different ways. has become my new favorite website. It is like playing with stickers – only cooler. I am only beggining, but this is fun! I can also create things when I am on the road for the day job. No more lugging around boxes of beads only to be hassled at the airport because it looks suspicious in my luggage!
