Chim chim cher-ee!

Well...It's my 61st birthday and I wanted to post something to commemorate the day (not sure why really), but what I began working on didn't come to fruition. So, I grabbed this outstanding texture from Cat Hair Studios, one Photo-tistic used so brilliantly a few months ago, to give it a try and to try something a bit different. This isn't perfect by any means, but I learned a lot doing it. This shot was taken at Bodie, California (a ghost town) and I love all the roof lines.


Now to quote something bossbob50 wrote on his 61st birthday, which rings so true to me...


"Age: day one--30; marvelous. 31 -- 60; exquisite. Now, 61 -- 90 (displaying either unashamed hubris or gross optimism, depending upon one's point of view): open, new, possible, scary - the apple gets to roll in any direction - purposefully - with a finale etched in stone. ...61 -- 90: Chapter one - "Let's Do This Thang!""


Thank you bossbob50!
