    Logo design I'd appreciate your help. Thanks

    Hi, I've been designing my new logo, all day long. I'm not native, and not a professional photoshop user so I'm not sure where to find some help in youtube/google for my problem. I draw a figure who meditates and I filled the body with the sunset. But I'm stocked and I can't go further. I...

    Blizzard Jonas cripples mid-Atlantic states in the USA

    Well, it's over, and we are all fine. The snow finally stopped about 9 PM last night (Saturday). It's now a bit after sunrise on Sunday morning, and we haven't yet ventured outside to start to dig out, but I've received several emails and messages asking how we were, so I thought I would...

    A nice hike and the first snow of the season for us

    Inspired by the challenge thread about a winter without any snow, I decide to post some actual photos (not composite images) of what the very first snow of the season looked like in this area. Yesterday, a friend and I took a nice 7 or 8 mile afternoon hike on the Appalachian Trail just north...

    Probably the most satisfying photo I have ever taken. Guess why.

    I've taken hundreds of thousands of pix in my life, but this one was one of THE most satisfying shots I have ever taken. It's far from being high quality or telling a story, but damn, it sure was satisfying. :beerchug:. Anyone want to guess why? ;-) Tom M

    Gone fishin' (...hiking, actually)

    Headed south last weekend, meeting up with some friends and heading north next weekend. Should be around during the week. The only camera I brought was the one in my iPhone cuz it also has all my topo maps, GPS, and serves as an emergency communications device -- what a great invention! Tom M

    I wonder how many of us are left-handed?

    Silly thought: I just noticed that in a recent response to AgentM, Sam noted that they were both left-handed. So am I, and this started me wondering just how many of us are lefties... What say ye? To reduce "self reporting bias" as much as possible, I would ask both left and right handed...

    Guess what I was photographing all day yesterday?

    Well, not quite all day, but close: from 0-dark-30 (ie, around 4 AM till dinner time). If no one guesses correctly, I'll keep adding more clues. :cheesygrin: Tom Clue #1:

    Possibly a real threat to PS (but for Macs only, right now)
