Places


These are pictures I've taken of the North State (I think only folks who live here call it that). What's sad is that I've traveled the world - 4 continents, 11 countries - but I've got not a single picture from ANY of them. It was always work first, fun later. Sigh. Maybe someday I'll travel again. Right.

One thing: starting with the fall color leaves, I've made the change to using sRGB for posted pictures. I can clearly see the difference in the color and pop of the images using the correct color mode. All other pics are in aRGB and the lack of pop is evident. I still shoot in aRGB, but now I know enough to convert before posting!!
