In brief, 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 continue with 76 photos originally shared in THESE eight posts. At the time, we were still in Hawaiʻi and I was using the Note 8 to generate content at least as often as the PC.

Using existing photos and merging them in Adobe’s Photoshop Mix app generated interesting combinations. That app is no longer available (the functions have been integrated into another app), but if you’re like me and had downloaded it onto your phone, then it still works.

In a nutshell . . . er . . . in a short paragraph (I’m out of nutshell), the app allowed you to ‘merge” and ‘mix’ two or more photos. Rather than explain more, let me show you with this first photo.

“Wow! That’s . . . wait; what the heck is that!?”

Today, I continue with 14 photos from August 2018 that were used singly in various posts, and another 64 photos originally shared in THESE posts. At the time, we were still in Hawaiʻi and I was using the Note 8. All of the photos from this gallery were snapped with the Note 8.

Anyway, on to the photos.

“Wow! That looks nice! Tell me again why you left Hawaiʻi?”

The Title Writing Prompt Challenge has evolved.

Meaning, like WordPress, I changed the rules on the fly.

I originally described in THIS post that we’d have readers suggest ten titles, then have a three-day voting period, and then we’ll each write a story with our interpretation of the title that receives the most votes. Then, I changed the rules by removing the reader’s inputs and going with randomly-generated titles (HERE).

Then, I changed the rules again. Because only a few titles get votes, and because I hate wasting titles, I reduced the number of available titles to five (5) plus a bonus title from the previous round.

The good news is that — hopefully — they’re higher quality titles, curated by yours truly.

But wait! . . . there’s more.

Today, I continue with 85 photos from June and July, 2018. The 85 photos were originally shared in THESE and THIS posts. At the time, we were still in Hawaiʻi and I was using the Note 8. All of the photos from this gallery were snapped with the Note 8.

Anyway, on to the photos.
