SmugMug Appreciation Sunday — No. 006

The background for these posts can be found in THIS post.

These posts serve to introduce new readers — and reintroduce regular readers — to photos from the early days of this blog and, occasionally, to photos from days before this blog came into existence.

Today, I offer a gallery with 123 photos.

I normally link posts originally associated with the gallery and/or photos in the gallery, but in this case, I give you THIS link, and if you choose to follow it, you’ll get a lot of posts that begin with NNWM No. 3, and half of them are protected. Those are all the updates I did for my third NaNoWriMo effort; the book that eventually got titled Gin’s War. The protected posts are the actual novel, and they are protected to preserve the FNASR. Normally, I tell readers to email me if interested in reading the novel and ask for the password. Sadly, that ship has sailed.

It would take some convincing to have me hand the password out because it’s been seven years that I’ve been offering (the last offer as late as last year) and no one’s ever asked.

Anyway, on to the photos . . .

That’s a photo from my then Samsung Note II

Yes, Colorado offers Canine Driver’s Ed. Don’t worry, few of them pass.

This gallery has an eclectic mix of photos.

Taken on Martha’s Vineyard while attending the Viable Paradise Workshop.

It was in the Fall of 2015 . . .

And yes, even seven years ago I was playing with the Topaz Plugins.

But, I also played with various Android Phone Apps. That happens to be a metal wall decoration at a hotel we stayed at.

Here are a few more . . .

Here are a couple of photos where I tried arranging the scene . . .

Here’s another from our trip to Martha’s Vineyard . . .

A tad artsified

How about an artsified Colorado scenery?

Or, how about a photo of a politician?

. . . I know just the thing! A winter scene from our deck in Colorado . . .

OK, just two more, and interesting ones at that . . .

That’s melting hail along with the remnants of flowers it knocked about
More hail along with the remnants of torn leaves

. . . so here are the links to the slideshow for the SmugMug Gallery in question.

Note: the transition is set to 2sec, but — if you move the cursor anywhere within the photo — you’ll see a pause button on the lower left, and, once paused, you can use the left and right arrows on both sides of the photo to navigate the slideshow. If you click anywhere in the photo instead of the pause button, you’ll exit the slideshow and find yourself in SmugMug. You can still scroll through the photos, or interact in other ways.
