Terrific job and effects Paula, I really like what you have done here, very unique!!! interesting!!!! we are having lousy weather too, terrible rain. Not as bad as you! Hope it gets better!!! #763660

Paula Showen 9/8/2004 8:56:11 PM

Thank you, everyone! I really need a weekend for shooting!

Now, it looks like Ivan is headed our way. Is there no end to this madness??? This poor State looks like a war zone! So many homes have been trashed. I'm ready for some sanity!
I'm just so thankful I haven't suffered any damage. There are so many people homeless right now. The funds are running out and another storm is coming our way.

I hope to have something different to upload here in the next few days.... #763724

I'm going nuts! I haven't been able to get out to do any photography, because the weather hasn't been the best around here! I am finding new ways to manipulate images. The manipulations have been done in PSP 8. If Ivan hits this weekend, that will be another weekend with no photo ops...Oh, don't think I didn't want to go out and do some weather shots! It's just not safe for my camera...LOL!
