What do you think of the new features in the Reader?  It took me a while to figure out how to get my posts to look the way I wanted.  A featured image and using Standard post format did the trick.  I used to use the Image format.  By the way, I am closing in on 2 million clicks, so please look around and help me get there.

There isn’t much I can say about Louisville, Kentucky. It’s a sleepy town on the Ohio River where the main attraction happens to be Bourbon distilleries.  Rand Paul represents them in the US Senate for whatever that is worth.

Demolition is complete.  The place looks like a war zone.  Monday they will spray fungicide.  The house has dried out, and it is odor free.  Getting to this stage cost about $10,000.  I don’t have an estimate of insurance recovery yet, and a building permit is at least 4 weeks away.

These are from the first and second day in Amsterdam.  I felt a few had a significant message in the color so that is how they are presented.  It is important not to be locked into any particular format.  Besides, when shooting digital you can have it both ways. My neighbors tell me the street in front of my house in Houston is a river.  One of them is going to check on the place today, but I really can’t do anything about it.

Here are some more photos from my first day in Amsterdam.  I was never that far from the Rijksmuseum as my hotel was nearby and I did not feel like going far after the long flight and 7 hour time change.

These were taken in or near the park behind the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. It was my first day there leaving me very jet lagged.  I helped the guy fix his bike.  The chain had jumped off the sprockets.

Most of us think of Hawaii as a place of lush color, but I found a few shots from my last visit to Maui that would work well in black and white.
