More eagle images today. I still have not been all the way through the images from the Friday shoot. I have only looked at about half of them and have deleted 97 of them. That’s a pretty high keeper rate for me. I’m showing you three flying eagle images today. These are pretty much the way they came out of the camera with just a little “high pass” sharpening. This can give you an idea of just how close the eagles were on Friday. It was a lot of fun photographing them.
On a personal note a small feeling of triumph this morning. My old Mac Book Pro (2011 version) stopped working. This is the one that I made two trips to Davenport to get a new battery put in at a cost of $170. It worked for a week and then I turned it on Thursday and got a “green apple” on the start-up screen and then just a blank white screen with no functionality. I did a Google® search on the symptoms and all the articles I found pretty much spelled doom for the machine. I tried some of the suggested remedies with no positive results. Finally decided this weekend I would take the hard drive out of the machine and trash the computer.
This morning before doing that I decided to give it one more try. This time I went to the Apple website and did some searching. They recommended 7 steps getting progressively more intense to see if functionality could be restored. Each step I took had negative results and I became more frustrated and reconciled that the laptop was toast. I got to step 7 and the same result with one minor exception. I saw a progress bar for a brief moment (I hadn’t seen that before) and then a blank screen again. Frustrated I decided to go eat breakfast before disassembling the laptop. Fortunately I left it turned on and when I came back from breakfast I had a log in screen. It had booted into “safe mode”, which was the last step I tried and gave me some options for repairs.
The rest of the story is that now it is working like a new machine. Whew! I’m glad I didn’t start taking it apart. 🙂
I plan to get through the rest of the images today and cull it down but I don’t expect to have a lot of throw a ways.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
