3 Wolves at Dawn

OK, I am back again in spite of yesterday’s frustrations. I decided to try posting an old Lupo Grigio picture. This is from my self-portrait series. It is one of the first pictures I ever did on Photoshop, so please be generous with your judgement–it might be the very first, I’m not sure. I think if you click on the picture, it will show a slightly bigger version.

I’d like to redo this picture now that I know more about photoshop, but for now, in the way of learning about WordPress blogging, I’m just doing this.

There are three of “me,” because I am a Gemini and have multiple personalities (we all do, really, don’t we, or is it just me?)

I would like to use this for more serious blogging about politics and the environment, but first I have to learn to use it.

I just had to upload the picture a second time because first it wouldn’t let me write with the picture in the post, so I deleted it, but it disappeared and I didn’t know how to retrieve it so I had to re-upload it. There must be a better way. Also, with the spell-checker, if you try to correct a word, the word disappears and you have to retype it. That’s stupid!

OK, this is ridiculous, Iive been having to get a new password every time I want to post which takes about 5 emails back and forth and nothing works right on this site, the photos and so on. It is clearlyNOT user friendly, but then I am used to blogger and Picasa where you just click post in Picasa and presto, it posts to Blogger, no fooling with file size etc. I am vary spoiled.

I haven’t got time for this sort of foolishness so I clearly will not be able to post here very often. I had a lot to say but now there is no time left to say anything and the picture handling sucks too. If you want to see the picture, click on it. If I have time, I will repost it. And maybe what I waned to say, too. But is it worth all this effort. Prolly not!! 😦

later: I added a new version (smaller–1/4 as big). Click thumbnail to view photo.

Today, we went to the maritime museum on Belle Isle, and since we were there for the Grand Re-opening, we also took a walk at Belle Isle from the Conservatory to the Skating Rink to the Casino to the Lion Fountain and back to the Conservatory. It was about a 45-minute walk. I was all loaded down with camera gear, but I did not take many pictures. The reason I did not take many pictures was that there was trash EVERYWHERE! it is really disgusting. OneBelle Isle Picnic Table cannot take a picture without getting trash in it.

I have decided that we should institute a citizen vigilante littering campaign, and when we see anyone littering, they should be forced to clean up all the litter in a mile radius of where they threw their trash and if not, all the litter should be dumped into their car or house or down the front of their shirt. Please sign up here if you want to help eliminate litterers. (I suppose we could just shoot them all–that would have the added benefit of lowering the population and raising the average IQ.)

This picture is nothing very exciting. I tried to get the trees and table to block out most of the trash, but you and still see some. And this was the cleanest spot I could find! By a long shot.

Orange Orchid

I am finding WordPress extremely user-unfriendly and difficult to use, much harder than Googgle Blogger! I can’t figure anything out. I suppose eventually I will, but meanwhile, I am hating it!

I LOVE flowers though. I uploaded this and pasted it in multiple times. I hope I finally get it right this time. I guess I have to size the picture differently, it doesn’t all show up but I’ve HAD it with this. If you click on it, you can see the whole picture!

Also I uploaded an avatar and that never showed up anywhere either!!
