the geek behind the curtain: shot from this afternoon, hanging out with little E, drinking green tea smoothies from starbucks. despite this being a half-way competent shot to begin with i just couldn't leave it alone. i sent it through Auto-DAP about ten times, picked my two favorites, and blended them in GIMP with the "real" digital bird photo underneath.
the bird itself was long gone.

Sorry I haven't been on flickr much lately. Our 12 year-old grandson has been ill with a partial paralysis of the left side of his face which was diagnosed as Bell's Palsy. I spent hours with he and his parents at the emergency room a few days ago. He is now being treated with medication and is improving.
