A Game of Cat and Mouse

You might notice I have added a flickr badge in the header of my blog (which wasn’t easy). I just got into using flickr yesterday and I am proud to announce I already have a photo that has been viewed over 1000 times and favorited fifteen times and its not even noon yet. This is […]

Spider Web Desktops

Here are a few more desktop wallpapers from photos I took that can be used for Halloween. They were taken early on a really foggy the morning last November when the spider webs were full of dew. My favorite is the one you can see the reflection of the tree upside down in the large […]

Halloween Desktops

I have talked a lot about digital cameras on this blog. Well, here are some shots taken with my Cannon PowerShot S2 IS that I think make great Halloween desktops. I have been using them.

Recover Damaged JPEG files

I am not talking about when you accidentally erased your camera’s memory or it got damaged, there are already plenty of solutions for that. What I want is to fix photos that have somehow been corrupted. In my case, photos of my Grandmother’s 80th birthday were put on a bad CD (not by me). Not […]

Canon Powershot S2 IS

Several months ago I decided it was finally time to buy a good digital camera. I have been wanting a good one for years but was never really happy with the ones anywhere near my price range. Previously the best I had was a 1.2 megapixel “keychain” camera. Anything would be a huge improvement, but […]
