The original pic of mine for "A Bird in the Hand" (10-30-16 009v2) is nearly 4 years old. But I just cleaned it up yesterday (cropping, realigning [it was vaguely tilted], and color-contrast-brightness work). I've been in a rush to go through my pix and choose at least 150 for a free order of 250 print copies I could have gotten from Shutterfly. But, of course, I kept getting caught up in working on pix I'd never yet touched, or in editing ones I had. Then I recalled how much stressful work it is to upload a lot of pix to Shutterfly (and Snapfish) and decided it wasn't worth it. But in the meantime I've gone through many more folders than I have to date and weeded them out. I've also begun a good list of pix I like enough to use on my blogs and/or get print copies when I don't have to do it all in a rush. (Good deals for free and/or really cheap print copies come up fairly regularly with both these websites.) Yeah, I've got plenty of birds in the hand right now. The distant dream of a slew of freebie prints isn't quite as compelling as it used to be. BTW, as to this pic? That's the Channel Islands in the distance, viewed from behind the fence at cliff's edge in Pescadero Park (a place I love to walk to and often take pix in). There are times of the year one can't see the islands at all, so I always welcome their "return."
