Passed my drone license test so here we go… DJI drone image featuring the Gary, South Dakota 150th Celebration Fire Fights.
Here is the link to my YouTube playlist which consists of three videos culminating our Camino experience as we tackled the Camino Finisterre. Buen Camino!
This was my first experience editing with Final Cut Pro and I see many YouTube tutorials in my future. Experience with Imovie was helpful but I have a long ways to go to be considered proficient in Final Cut Pro. It was a struggle to get the audio just right and transitions other than cross dissolve have eluded me. Audio voice-overs were recorded with a H1N1 recorder.
The tiny, lightweight DJI Pocket 2 is a great travel camera. I brought along the ND filters but didn’t use them as I stuck to auto settings since the lens wouldn’t go in the case when I shut the camera off with a filter on. The filters were also too fiddly when switching back and forth for quick shots and I was afraid of losing or damaging them. Oh well, another time.
Patiently waiting for summer as I edit on a cold, blustery day.

Check out the bisque firing results of the Canby Area Arts Council “Play with Clay” workshops. The classes were held on Saturday, August 7, 2021, in Canby Central Park, Canby, MN. This is one of two kiln loads so the groups were very productive. Next step will be glazing the pieces on Saturday, August 21, 2021 and they will again be fired.
Salt Lake is the only alkaline lake in the state of MN (1/3 as salty as sea water) and attracts a remarkable variety of birds. Located in Lac Qui Parle County, this 312 acre lake is known as one of the state’s top birding spots, supporting a large diversity of shorebirds and waterfowl.
It was through Mae Nisbit Peterson’s interest in birds that Salt Lake, was preserved as she brought this area to the attention of naturalists.

2020 life and travel plans may have changed, but that doesn’t mean life stops – it merely adjusts itself.
What a great opportunity to supervise the grandkids’ remote learning program:
Excitement filled the air as we stealth traveled to the mountains of Colorado. Cooler with food and wine-check, hand sanitizer-check, rubber gloves-check, multiple face masks-check, GoPro camera that I need to learn to use-check. A few days in Colorado provided wonderful adventures:
Another goal has been learning to use GoPro features like time-lapse:
…and time-warp. I am quite awkward in my attempts and have a lot to learn:
Game on 2021…
Greetings to our family and friends all around the globe. Looking forward to adventures, travels and exploring the world again. Someday…
This young Korean man was photographed walking the Camino de Santiago for world peace.
This will forever be one of my favorite images as I continue to have hope for future generations.
A woman deep in thought while doing laundry in Porto, Portugal. I stare at this image while my own load of laundry finishes whirring in the machine, ready to hang up and dry.
Laundry day… same but different.
