    I see green hair.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    That's her current hair color, though it's been digitally lightened in this shot.

    I could claim that it's not her hair, it's a headdress, and I'm not sure if it's blue/black or gold/white...

I'm hesitant to make a change to monetizing a hobby. I'm honored that you chose something I produced.
    ^This sums up my fear with SmugMug subsuming Flickr. You obviously have an account because that's where your site directed me in order to place my order :-) I could've downloaded it and printed it myself at my college, but I don't like our large format giclee printer and hate the paper we print on. It didn't cost me any more to order it than to take it someplace locally to get it printed. The print I received is an actual photographic print, which I am pleased with: details are crisp and the image looks great.

    I haven't finished with the site yet, someday...maybe. Smugmug does give me a lot of control over who can see what. I can keep you from downloading higher resolution files if you just directly browse from the main page, which is what I feared had happened. I have multiple unique links that allow access to higher resolution files for specific people/purpose. Anytime I link in this forum I use galleries that grant access to download any resolution file for anyone with a direct link. Flickr doesn't give me that kind of control and having it is worth the cost right now. If I thought I could sell enough prints to justify the next tier (where I get a cut) I would, but I wouldn't do that for photos here.

    It will be interesting to see what happens in the future with Flickr.

    How big did you print and what options did you select? I printed several at 8x12, glossy and metallic just to see what the results were relative to Costco. They aren't much more expensive than a Costco print, and higher quality. I believe the default SmugMug provider is EZprints based in Norcross, GA. Anything 13 x 19 or less I print at home on a Canon PRO-100 (which is essentially free when you buy a Canon camera bundle). At the next higher tier I can select other additional print houses to be used.

    12x18 Luster finish. It will join some interesting art hanging in our home that includes original paintings etc. I have one other photo: a giclee print of an Italian hillside village by a former MFA colleague. She shoots in polaroid. Blown up the image has an etherial feel to it. Your image will work well in another room, maybe on a wall near a painting by my brother in-law, a 4 spot colour wood block print from a former classmate from Art School and a large print of the Berlin, Germany commuter train system from 1882.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Yes, it’s from the top of Enchanted Rock.

    Been a while since I've been out to shoot for fun instead of graduation stuff. Went on a bird "workshop" with a local camera store sponsored by Olympus. At a local refuge 15 minutes from home that I haunt fairly regularly.

    And then yesterday to check on the osprey nest. There might be more to come from the nest in the future. Sat out watching for about 2.5 hours. Hoping to catch one landing with a fish. Mostly struck out.

    I had been previously aware of the phrases "glutton for punishment" and "definition of insanity", thank you for showing how they can be used simultaneously.

    I also check this thread when I see you have posted - you've taken some great shots

    Thnx for sharing them.

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    Saw some images from this book. Reminds me of some of Swamp's night photos ...

    A Detroit Nocturne

    In a continuation of Dave Jordano’s critically-acclaimed Detroit: Unbroken Down (powerHouse Books, 2015) which documented the lives of struggling residents, A Detroit Nocturne is an artist’s book not of people this time, but instead the places within which they live and work: structures, dwellings, and storefronts.

    A few more from the same location as the osprey nest.
