Staying at a beautiful Air Bee Und Bee, Aspen Retreat in Anderson Alaska, about 40 miles from Mt. Denali. 55 acres of dense woodlands and wetlands is a photographer’s dream but a wet one this time because it’s raining. Thank God for indoor running water and toilets because I sure as hell wouldn’t want to… Continue reading Aspen Retreat – Anderson, Alaska -1 – August 2021
June 27, 2021 we escaped to the relative comfort of 90degF, versus 112degF in Portland, at Timberline Lodge and took a few pics. The blacksmith work and folk art, done by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps), is outstanding and a national treasure.

His recipe: tripod manual mode metering mode = spot large Auto-ISO ISO 100 timer f/5.0… Continue reading Moon – June 26, 2021

The Thibaud Michel app needs to have the Imaging Edge Mobile app (formerly Play Memories by Sony) open to even begin to work. It’s a clustermess and the blame lays completely at the feet of Sony for charging… Continue reading Time lapse App – Thibaud Michel

Errors are all connection related and I have to click past them to get it to complete photo transfer to my Samsung Galazy J7. It works. Error One: Error Two:
