Hi Monica: This is wonderful, a new friend, a wonderful trip and no jet lag.
I have been working on my photos so that they would be in order when you decide to look at my gallery. While I was gone I had a friend enter one a day into Better Photo for the contest, and they were not really edited to my liking but if she did the work it would not really be from me. So there are 3 plants and two Pismo Beach and one car photo that need some work.
We landed on time in S.F., but made it on the road just in time for the commuter traffic, got home about mid-night.
I felt really well on Tuesday, Wednesday was tough, but back to normal the last two days.
I want to give you the info to get into my gallery: p/w BDD8A.
When I arrived home, I found an award for second place for May, I was really happy. I can’t wait for you to view “Desertscape”.
I bet I am the fastest friendship you have ever made, I am so glad.
My best, Merna Nobile

Hello Monica: Well I bet this has never happened to you before. You just received a message from the resident ding-bat that was for another friend of mine. I am so embarrassed; I hope that you will forgive me. Now on to the next two people I just offended. My best, Merna #9500053

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
