Back from Colorado

I'm sure a few of you may have been wondering why there have been no new postings on the blog for the last few weeks.  There are two reasons for this.  First, we were out visiting in the Denver, CO area for several weeks and second the program that I had loaded on my laptop that would have allowed me to re-size my pictures didn't work.  So now, we will play catch-up.

The next two photographs were shot while touring the Denver Public Library Artistry of Railroads exhibit.

You have such a good eye. The picture of the Denver building and of the bobber in the water show that. I really enjoy the kinds of pictures where much of the real creativity was in the seeing.
