I’m out on a limb

I have been thinking about learning a method of removing photos from my hard drive and transferring photos to an online site. The reason being is that now that I have bought a new camera, Nikon L120, I will be experimenting more with photography and don’t want to store more photos which are turning my computer into snail service. I mean really! The massive digital library is slowing my computer down…..

Well the program I choose is Google’s Picasa. I really don’t know what I am doing but I hope bit by bit I will learn the system and how to transfer photos to my Blog on WordPress. Here’s a go where one photo file is being stored.  These are some of the photos of the Storm on July 1 and aftermath on July 3. I called it Storm Reflections. So far this file are stored at https://picasaweb.google.com/108867763374351132884/20110703Storm070111?authuser=0&feat=directlink

Now I will check this site to see if it is actually possible to open the photos. OK the photo file does open and you can view the photos for this blog there.  Please have patience with me. I am a senior of 66 years old and learning technology doesn’t come easy to this elder.

I can even view the photos using slide show. But how do I upload a photo from Picasa to this page? Hummm! This is still a mystery. If anyone out there knows, please comment. Perhaps I can learn through the new Eaarth global kindred community. The old way as far as I am concerned is gone! re: Call a techie. I used to be able to do this but now I have to knock on Heaven’s door.

SOS: New Eaarth by Bill McKibben.  The founder of 350.org is the author of Eaarth. We are already forming new tribes with community like minded friends wherever they are in the Universe. It’s exciting to be part of growing large network which is according to McKibben “making a life on a tough new planet.”

p.s. Read my post on the photo site. This will give you an idea of what transpired with nature after the storm.

    Beautiful Photos – loved the Rainbow over Minong!

      Hi Jo, Ours skies are forever changed here in the Midwest. Today it was so neat to walk outside in the eye of the storm. It lasted about 15 minutes and now it is a downpour. Of course we pray for rain so I am happy. The interesting thing is if the sun decides to come out in the west as the sun sets and it is still raining in the east, a rainbow will appear. I have seen it happen again and again over Minong valley. Could this be one of the reasons Native people called this valley, “It’s a good place.”: Or as dominant locals say, “Peaceful valley.” Thanks for the comment on Rainbow over Minong. Blessings!
