Happy Saturday. It took its sweet time getting here but now I hope you enjoy the day. Angie, Ben and the kids stopped by for some burgers and Fincel Sweet Corn last night. We had a wonderful meal and a fun time with the grand kids. We all over ate and then it was time for baths and bed time. Ah, the joys of being a grand parent. Feed them, rev them up with play and then send them home. 🙂
For the photography followers of this blog I have some information that might be of interest. Adobe (the makers of Photoshop and other creativity products) has made a transition to what they call the Creative Cloud. Prior to this I would buy Photoshop (I started using it at version 7) use it for 18 months and then they would come out with a new version with new and better features. Yes, there was a reduction in price if you owned a previous version and you could pay the upgrade price but there was always this decision to be made, do I upgrade now or wait until the next release?
Trouble is there was usually enough new and exciting features that made upgrading almost a necessity (at least in my tiny mind.) Well now with the Creative Cloud you pay a monthly subscription price ($10 per month for the first year and $19 a month after that.) You still have the software on your computer but the difference is you get new features and updates as soon as they come out. So I started this subscription two months ago and they have added two new features in those two months.
The latest addition is a filter called “camera shake.” It can literally take a soft image and make it sharp. Maybe not “tack sharp” but really sharp. I’ll show an example of this remarkable filter in an upcoming post. There is a lot of discussion around the net about this new way of doing business but I personally like it.

Joshua has always had a fascination with lights and switches. He loves (even before he could talk or walk) to flip switches and look at the light. He would flip a switch and then point to the corresponding light with a delightful smile. So last night while we were all recovering from dinner he was busily checking out all the lights in the house. 🙂
Enjoy your Saturday. Thank you as always for stopping by the blog. Check in tomorrow if you have time. Some exciting news from the Duck Pond. Be careful.
