A Hint of Things to Come


We are fiddling around with various errands, including downloading photos, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to post a lovely photo of the girls who performed in the ceremonies at the Tibetan Wedding we attended. Only four of the five girls are shown, but the most important one (important to us anyway), the first on the left, is the daughter of the kind lady who invited us to the wedding.
This photo is by Bret. He and Cheryl are better photographers than I am (meaning a greater proportion of thier photos turn out exceptionally well). I don't lack artistic talent, just the level of patience and persnicketiness (yes, me!) to achieve any great heights of photographic art. So this is a good, but not great photo, of theirs. It does what most of my photos do, tells a story (another reason my photos lack something is that I don't edit as much - mostly because the picture tells a story for me). When I get back to the States, when I post any of Bret and Cheryl's photos, I will most likely put a watermark on them, because the truly beautiful ones are Art.

Very cool. I have a hard time taking really good photos too. Usually when I'm not trying is when I end up with some good ones.

Welcome back! I'm looking forward to your pictures and your stories - and thanks for taking the time to periodically post while you were there.

Ah, excellent. You come back just as I come back, and now we can inundate everyone with pretty pictures together. :)

(Also, pay no attention to that strange-looking guy passed out in your tub. We'll have him moved out in a jiffy! Just as soon as we ladle off enough strawberry jam to get a good hold on him.)

Gorgeous! (the mister is a better photographer than me. He just has The Eye.)

Welcome home!
