Spring Creek

We went to Dorrington for the weekend, and while I didn't shoot much, I did get 4 or 5 images that I think are pretty great.

I've posted one at Fine Art America here:

I haven't had the chance to print or even proof any of them, but I wanted to work with this one, as I also have audio to go with it.

coppermine gripe

I've about had it with coppermine as a platform for my portfolio.

I think I'll be revamping all my photo galleries in the next couple of weeks.


I don't know why I wasn't getting UPS emails - which are the only way I get their bills, but I didn't get them for a few months.

Now my UPS usage is pretty small...I gripe about another issue later, but we're not talking about a lot of dough.

So, they get around to sending me a notice by mail about my unpaid balance, about which I was partially unaware. Why partially? Well, I gave a vendor my UPS account number and asked them to send me stuff on my account to save a shipping premium they charge. Well, I get no invoices from UPS, so I'm not aware of what I owe.

I call them, and discover, aha, here are the collect charges. They ask about my email address to make sure it's the right one, and, lo and behold, it is - I still didn't get the invoices, but I paid what I believed I owed - never got any invoices from them - by email even after I called.

They added late payments. I didn't pay them.

Now they've given me notice I've got an invoice, and I got to log in to my account, and can't. Ask to get a new password by email. I get it....can't log in with the new password. Get another password from them...can't log in with that one.

Woof - I call the number in the email states they're open Mon-Fri 8am - 9pm eastern time. The message says, they're open 8am to 8pm eastern time. Too late on the west coast to call after 5pm.

Ok, I'll call tomorrow.

How much time invested? Just 1 hour so far.

Twitter Experiment

Ok, I'm trying twitter to see how else I can be distracted from doing my work. So far, I've found the article posted below, and a French photographer who's identified a couple of links to other websites where I might post my art. We'll see.

Art Books

I am a hopeless collector of art books. I often acquire more than one of a title that interests me, and offer those for sale at my website, many times at prices less than retail. I tend to enjoy western art and photography, landscape art[ists], Japanese prints and style, biographies and a variety of other things. Take a look, you might see something you like. And I will be identifying books I think are special.

Link to Art Books.

I've just started posting images to the Fineartamerica site. Hello to those of you who have come here from there.

I am revamping my website starting tomorrow to update many new images I've made over the past year and haven't posted yet.

You can see additional images I've posted at the site in the interim.

I'd value any and all comments you have the time to leave me.
