    • I’ve ridden that ferry a couple of times. It’s a second way to get to Portland from where I live. Other than that it’s a longer drive to the other ferry or the freeway.


  1. What a great selection! Fields and roads — I love the second from the top showing where sometimes, the road ends. Abruptly.

    I had more trouble with this than I should have but that’s because it’s so hard finding anything on WordPress’s badly designed database. All the years working in database design and management and I wind up the victim of one of the worst databases I’ve ever encountered. Is this Karma?


      • I don’t have enough room to store things on the computer and attaching a backup and then searching for pictures is one step over MY personal line. I have many more pictures that are NOT on WordPress — like more than 125,000, give or take a few thousand and since I haven’t given up taking pictures, I have to be careful not only of what I can put on WP, but what I can store locally on my computer. I actually have MORE space on WP than on my computer. I wanted a 2TB HD, but I could only get a 1TB. I have backups that are bigger — both of them — but finding picture is agonizingly slow. I finally realized I’m never going to reorganize all these photographs. It’s too much.

        But meanwhile, WordPress is really AWFUL. And getting awfuller ever day. Some of their new templates are SO INSANELY HARD TO USE, I think I’d give up blogging rather than try to make sense of them.

        Anyway, today I didn’t read anyone else blog. I drew pictures all day. Whenever I start drawing, NOTHING else (except dinner) gets done. And now, it’s 1:19AM and I am going to sleep. Or try to sleep.

        • I’m lucky I started keywording right away. My computer when we bought it we purposely got 4TB hard drive so my photos were all on board. Best decision I ever made. Hope you got some good sleep. I’m glad that time disappears for you when you are drawing. 😀 😀


          • Drives that big are hard to find for laptops. When I had a desktop, it was easy to get bigger drives, but after the last surgery, I didn’t want to be alone in my office so much of the time. I was also too sick to BE alone so much. But there’s a limit on what you can fit in a laptop. I have 4 tb of backup space and if I had started keywording 10 years ago, I’d have a lot easier time. But really, it IS too late to start over. I keyword NOW, but more than 100,000 pictures are sorted by date and month — which has turned out to be a not very useful sorting. Vacations and visits to different places are sorted by location, but the rest? I have thousands of pictures I’ve never ever looked through, much less processed and a realized, finally, I never will.

            Drawing is (ironically) easier because I have all the originals — well except for a few I’ve given as gifts. I thought when I started photography that I would remember everything. I was a lot younger then. I didn’t think I’d get old and forget quite so much.
