Fiery Sky

Fiery Sky – Toronto, April 12, 2016

We seldom see fiery sky here in Toronto.  So, imagine how excited I was to see this on my way home yesterday.  Dusk could not have been more beautiful… to me.


Photo Editor – My New BFF

Photography is such a fulfilling hobby for me.  Although I don’t travel much these days, I love walking around my neighborhood taking pictures.  I don’t care if I don’t have a big professional camera… those are expensive and I can’t afford them.  My little Nikon Coolpix digital is good enough for me.  It takes amazing pictures and it is simple for anyone to use.

But there are a few times… ok, many times… that pictures just don’t come out right.  That’s why my new BFF is my photo editor.  I use PhotoScape, which is free and so easy to use.  There are a number of free online photo editors and they are all good.  You can have your pick.

See the photo above with borders?  Doesn’t it look like a painting?  Thanks to my new BFF, it does.  The picture below is the original one, taken in St. Pete, Florida at dusk.

Mysterious Light Beam at Dusk

It happened at dusk.  The mysterious light beam appeared.  It was like Captain Kirk just said “Beam me up, Scotty” and he went shooting up towards the Starship Enterprise.   It was a slow ascent (The Enterprise was an old spacecraft after all) so I was able to take a shot.  You don’t believe me, do you?

What if I told you that I just witnessed an alien abduction.  Those stories are true, you know.

Ok, it was a jet plane shooting straight up in the sky?  Yeah, that was it… I think.
