MUG SHOTS

Look straight ahead..

Turn to the left...

Now turn to the right.

Where have I been? Well, all the usual stuff, plus getting another completely different web page done on the advice of my internet store guys. This one has some of our images that are for sale, and links back into the store itself, for ordering...The "geeks" in my life tell me that the more sites that link to a store, the better. So we'll see what happens.
It's on my sidebar (Photo Art from Nature); and like everything else I'm trying to do, is a "work in progress," but I have managed to get 2000+ products entered in the "store."
And I have to confess a really dumb thing I did - I realized I wasn't going to have time to post and blog every day, and I decided to move all my links to your blogs into my "favorites," for quick peeks when there wasn't time to post...but I linked most of them to the page with the latest blog. So I kept looking, and it always looked as though nobody was posting. Finally I shook some of the cobwebs out of my brain and realized what I had done - so I had to go back and change the links....You were there all the time! Thank goodness, and bless you all.

Helen, what nice cardinal shots. The red stands out so nicely on the beak & wings. Finding time to work and blog is a challenge for me too. Plus all the other 'stuff' that one has to do. Happy New year and wishes for a very successful 'store' with all your products listed. 2000? yikes that had to take a long time.

Right back at you. Love the cardinal line-up shots. They're wonderful.

Do you know how many times I've done something on that blog thing of mine and have had no clue what just happened? Or done something and 5 minutes later realized it simply wasn't what I intended? O bother!

How did you get the bird to pose according to your directions? Excellent pictures.
Don't feel bad about the links -- computers have made all of us feel like dunces at one time or another!

Oh Helen, not to worry.... I do things like that all of the time thinking that I'm going to save myself some time. HA!!!! Doesn't always work that way!!!

Love your female Cardinal pictures. Ours looks just like yours this time of year.
Hugs,
Betsy

It looks like the Cardinal is looking for Us :) I like the bluebird on the top of the page. I just love it when their wings open up.

That is some mug Helen, hope you didn't lock him up though.{:)

I visited your store site and it's looking better than ever.

Roy said...

Helen,
I have had a chance to look at your new site,"Photo Art from Nature". Its very well presented and the geeks have done a great job on it.

Jayne said...

Sounds like a busy time Helen. I am sure the coming spring is the busiest at the store as people start to think about nature and be outside again. Good luck with the retooled web site!

Mary said...

Wonderful shots of Mrs. C. You sound very busy, and I hope the store and new web site are doing well!

Love the Cardinal pictures.I am glad to hear that others do some less then perfect computer work,makes me feel more 'normal'.Guess it just proves we are all human,and ,hopefully learning.

Loved your mug shots - she certainly look like she was fierce! (and still beautiful!)
Good luck on your store - my hubby still needs to purchase that loon weather thermometer for me so I will push him this week!

Great mug shots. She would do well in a lineup.

Happy New Year!
