A selection of old books on my bookcase .. most of which I’ve read and enjoyed. Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon/Nikkor lens. Photoshopping included textures from the great Jerry Jones of ShadowHouse creations. There is, however, a mistake in this image … can you spot it??

    Hi Lois….They are old for sure…but then, with this gold leave added it is like a jewell. The result is splendid really..by the way what do your think about the new RB display?

  • Thanks so much, Rosa!!!! As to the new format, I came across it very late last night (or early this morning, lol) and it really threw me for a loop. I don’t understand why they feel the need to change things as I was quite happy with the old format. I do, however, like that they took the small row of images that used to crawl across our activity feed and gave them their own page. That’s nice.
