No, I never made the grade.
All of these cameras and more and I am still not
a photographer.  This is simply proof that the camera
does not make you a photographer.

I have learned what some of the real photographers
tell us it true.  It would be better to use only one

Meet Penny.

This is (was) Penny.
She was one of the interesting sights at Fort Rock Family
Camp.  My understanding is that someone left here there
with the camp.  Penny was allowed to wonder all over the
farm and woods area.  When driving up to the camp directors
house you were often met by Penny.  She would not allow 
you to pet her.  But she was making sure who was coming
and going.

Even pigs have an age limit.  Penny met hers several years
ago.  Personally I miss Penny.

or after the one above with a normal camera.

Both images were taken from the same spot.  But a 
slightly different angle.

Infrared photography was interesting.  But I found it 
to be of little use.

I do not know what it is either.
But with it's location, near the top of a hill
in Wrightwood, CA, makes me think it is
part of an old ski lift.

So, what's so exciting about an old piece of junk?
To some of us guys, it is as exciting as a lady finding
a pretty little flower out in the wild all by it's self.

I had to ask too.
It is part of an old ski lift in Wrightwood, California.

Nice addition to the trees,
that is if you are a skier.
