Three Pictures

Picnik will be closing.  The last day to use the photo editing site is April 19, 2012.  I will be sorry to see it go because I was just starting to really enjoy playing around with my photos in a variety of ways.   Picnik made play easy to do, usually in one step rather than the several I often have to take in Photoshop to get certain effects.

309: Hot and steamy cycling adventures

Under the bridges on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail in Stark County

As promised, I have some photos from yesterday’s cycling adventures.  No self portraits are included.  It was a 3H day (hot, hazy, and humid).  I was not a pretty sight by the time we finished our six mile ride.
