This time, I’m using BlogDesk. (updated)  I mean, I attempted to use BD – no go!

I had wished BD had a few extra, useful icons at the top bar; and, I would like to see a choice of fonts available for composition.  Adding tags would be a useful feature too.  Just getting it to upload my blog entry would be nice.  Maybe I don’t have it set up correctly.

Nevertheless, if it is able to attach the blog entry photo to my home page, and, attach a thumbnail photo to the title of the blog, when publicized at Facebook, then I will probably just stick to BlogDesk…that is, until I change my mind on that. (updated) – it never did anything – would not upload my blog entry.  I used to be able to use BD.

On to another issue:

Rule number one about photographing the sun:  Never photograph the sun! LOLOL!  Well, if you are so inclined, then don’t look through the viewfinder to compose, and NEVER point your camera at the sun for very long.  BE CAREFUL!  You can damage your eyes and your camera – thus, I don’t recommend it.  Being the adventurous photographer, I don’t listen to my own good advice, and here (above) is my rendition of the sun on 13 Dec 2011.

Well, BlogDesk was a bust also.  It had trouble uploading photos to WordPress.  I concede.  I will just use WordPress blog editor utility to compose my blog entries.  But, this is maddening nonetheless.

Anti-Fungus Day

Happy Holidays, anyone who stops by to read this!

Well, besides being a holiday, it is ‘Anti-Fungus Day’ here in this Tropical Wonderland of Fungus. Fungus is the number one enemy of lens glass, next to clumsy fingers. Fungus has got to be the worst invention next to Typhoid, now I’m just being nutty! However, if you ever spend any time in the tropics and I guess that would include Florida, you better be prepared to fight the fungus battle. If you are unlucky enough to have fungus grow on the inner lens elements, your lens is nearly doomed! So, in honor of Anti-Fungus Day, I took my lenses and filters out in the tropical sun, which must have been damn near 95 degrees, and just let them bake for about 30 mins., each. When I’m not using a lens-product, it stays in my dehumidifier box or my camera bag with dehumidifier.
