    is that a real place, real photo, that you took?

      Yep, just took that photo an hour or two before, at Madison Square Park in Manhattan. :-)

      Frank, they’re all fantastic!

      Thank you Maeve, though it seems like the picture degrades in quality a little when I post it. Little known geekfact: WordPress compresses images another 10% when you upload them. I better go disable that just to ensure that doesn’t impact the quality of future uploads.

    Did you take the background picture on your site? It’s beautiful.

      Yep, I took that while I was in Silverton, Colorado, after I had made the brilliant decision to off-road to an abandoned mining town in a Hyundai compact, on a nearly empty fuel tank. Oopsie loo.

    You’re quite the photographer, Frank! Are you using 35mm? My husband is highly partial to those and has a very nice one, although we do have a couple of digital cameras too.

      Believe it or not that was taken with my iPhone, using the Instagram app. http://instagram.com

      Sometimes the quality is poor, but to redeem them I use a filter to give it a more artistic rendering (I’ll post one of those later). I also carry a Canon Powershot S95 that takes nearly perfect low-light shots (although I’m probably due for an upgrade there…)
