Getting NIK Back after Upgrading Photoshop

Just a quick note.  I’m on the Adobe cloud.  Upgraded to Photoshop 2014.  Opened an image in Photoshop 2014  from Lightroom 5 and my NIK menu was gone.  Normally it pops up as a floating box.  Also, now have two versions of PS installed, PS6 and the latest one – 2014. Went to Adobe, realized […]

Empire casino (Yonkers).   This morning.  I won $8 after two hours of video poker.  Then walked around with the Ricoh GR2.

2nd Avenue Construction with GigaPano Head

Of course nobody says that you need to stay naturalistic when you’re using the Pano head and Kolar stitching software.  This was 180 degrees vertical, shot from beneath the usual New York scaffolding – but messed up along the way pretty much on purpose.  Almost like a seashell gone wrong.  It’s composed of 75 RAW […]

Life In Social Media Part 2

Life In Social Media Part 2

Sitting here in the year 2025 I can look back and see how it all happened.  It’s now 25 years since I began a photo blog.  And it wasn’t that I was an outgoing person who wanted to tell his story to the world; but rather was a private person that realized (these were the […]

Palindrome City 1

A word that is spelled the same whether from left to right or right to left, such as Otto is a palindrome.  I called these images visual palindrome because they’re mostly the same whether flipped around or not.  Although strictly speaking – sometimes they began as palindromes and were later processed to be uneven.  Visual […]
