Happy Halloween

Skull Rock From me and a creepy rock. Seen near Cape Alava, Washington this summer. Alas, I was backpacking and it was too heavy to carry home. Plus it had lodgers.

How I spent my summer vacation

Victoria Station, London Didn't you just hate those essays? Since I haven't posted since July the topic seemed a place to start anyhow. I got back to sorting through photos from the entire year of 2012. It seems my focus has been elsewhere than on blogging and photography. It is hard to explain. Sometimes these things happen. I wonder if in part I should blame Facebook. It seems as if some of my blogger friends gave up blogging for Facebook and that the blog movement has lost some of its momentum. I feel a sense of loss for that because although FB gives me a place to stay in touch with distant friends and family, blogging is a place where I can express myself anonymously without worrying about what those same people will say or think. I do like FB for the Scrabble though. I claim it will keep my brain young but the recent scientific data shows that exercise is more important than thought for staving off the decays of age. At any rate, I am hereby posting a few shots from my summer vacation which included a brief trip to London and Edinburgh. Hopefully if I keep at it there will be more to follow.
