Well, Yesterday brought quite a scare! I went to book up the old computer in the morning and got this error message that said...Corrupt windows root>sysytem32/hal.dll please reload file before rebooting. The hard drive was not looking good. After a search online on another computer searching that error message, I was left with a very sick sinking feeling. I have told myself dozens of times to make sure I back up my files, and read horror stories online of people who haven't. I would always get around to it or do it next time I had some more you know that time never seems to come around. I did however invest in a 400GB external hard drive and may have backed up a fraction of my photo files, but thats about it....Thanks so much to Harold at work, in out IT department. He broke out the old defibrulator and somehow rebuilt Windows XP without losing my files! WHEH! I can breath again. Needless to say, I will be spending quite a bit of time backing up files and looking for a software product that can do this automatically. Here is a recent shot that I almost lost...

Limkin, aka "the Kirate Kid"

I recently caught this shot of a Limkin at Saddle Creek park in Lakeland, Florida. It really reminded me of the scene from the Kirate Kid movie...I must not get out much.

New Flower shots

Ok, it's been a while since I posted here so it is time to put up some stuff. Life has certainly not been slowing up with kids out of school. I had the recent pleasure of spending the day with my brother Marc and we drive around Lakeland and Winter Haven shooting fence photo's. At the last house we stopped at, aw we were leaving, I noticed this small garden between by the driveway and had to take some shots with my 50mm lens. I love this lens as it takes some of the best shots you can imagine. This is one of the shots after I cropped in quite a bit in photoshop and thought the image came out looking quite nice. I suppose I ought to post a fence shot as well.....
