The case of the disappearing photos.
It used to happen from time to time - now it's happening a lot more often. After posting my photos in here which I have hosted for years on Fotki dot com, the urls change causing my blog to have many blank placeholders.
This is not meant to be a rant - just letting people know why there are so many missing photos.
Unfortunately, I can't take the time to keep fixing the links.
Enjoy what's left. Thank you.

Forgive me. I downloaded a trial of Photoshop Elements 8 and have been playing around with it. This is an ordinary spotlight turned black and white, then added the blue color and slight lens flare.

The flower, from a few days ago, after cropping and the usual post processing stuff, I added "Plastic Wrap".

Not sure I like this new editor. It's very difficult to work with. I'll give it some more time though. This is part of the failed tomato crop. As you can see, there were some fine looking fruits there before the disease destroyed them. *sigh*

Late Sunflowers

This whiteboard was basically unusable for a couple years because someone drew on it with permanent marker, so I decided we had nothing to lose and took a chance with a strong graffiti remover and some serious elbow it pretty decent and at least usable. The next day this message was written on it. Awww. It's nice to be appreciated. I hope it can be erased. lol

The tomatoes in the garden this year took a fatal turn for the worst, as what i believe was a blight (early AND late from what I've read) caused them to all rot on the vine. In some cases the plants themselves died earlier this summer. I thought it was only because of poor soil, as it's a new garden and some parts of the garden had huge trees growing the previous year.
Better luck next summer (I hope).
