    right on.

    Tom, I whole heartededly concur...photoshop is indeed, full of cumber!

    Burnzilla. Nice salamander shot by the way...did you opt for the superglue route to keep the beast in place, or do you possess a strange Dr Doolitesque mezmeric skill?

    He was quite slow. I think I woke him up when I found him under the wood pile.

Like Brad, I also am learning LightRoom, an adobe file organizing software program. It offers the ability to substantially tweak your photos but doesn't even approach the complexity of PhotoShop, which is, well, cumberful.

    Anywho, I took a stab at further tweaking the above image and came up with this:
    No amount of tweeking is going to make that pen interesting. The shot lacks anything to pull the viewer in. A back drop might help.

    Woke him! I'm having none of that, where are his jimmy jams then? This is without doubt a stunt salamander and is used to photographic modelling, either that or....

    Doped!

    I bet he was out of his tiny mind on creosote or some such concoction.

    It's an evil plot to get the better of my squirrel, who only sniffs at the nuts with mogadone on them and runs off when I approach with a hammer and six inch nail.

    You can tell that salamander is off his head, look at that stunned look in its eyes. In his mind he's gettin' down with the fine lady salamanders.

    And you got it to pose!
    Probably tempting it with a drug infused insect.

    Well Burnzilla, I challenge you to a squirrel off. Yes big and mighty squirrels, not little squishable lizards and insects. Something manly with sharp nippy nippity nip bitey teeth and scratchy pointy claws and stuff....

    Oh bugger it, I'm just jealous of that fine pic.

    I did have a humming bird pass by today, but it naffed off when the bloody squirrel showed up and before I could lock and load.

    I believe the correct term for stunt-salamander is chameleon. Besides, what's the big deal? He's nothing but a glorified insurance salesman.










    This post strives to be bitingly ironic and in now way intends harm or insult to salamanders, chameleons, insurance sales representatives or expatriates. No geckos were harmed in the crafting of this post; however, one squirrel was roundly trounced. Little bugger.

    That's it...an out of work, resting salamander, depressed at not getting an appalling sitcom out of the TV commercials. I bet Burnszilla picked him up on the cheap...one desperate deal away from a career in lizard porn (come on, someone's bound to be into that sort of stuff) down on his sticky feet. Burnszilla offered a pile of wood (euphamisms can be applied liberally) to bed down in, in exchange for some 'artistic' photos.

    It's a very sad world we live in.

    you should be ashamed, you, you, you, squirrelists!!!!!!

    Please excuse the last rambling...I've been editing a friend's christmas video. Other people's kids singing "Oh jingle rudolph bethlehem bells of holly" time and time and time again, has just tipped me over the bleedin' edge.

    I think I may stop being their friend.

    Do you think Burnszilla will be able to get discounted insurance for MOA members?
