I am self-taught in both photography and graphic enhancements…and what a fabulous, intensive journey I’m having!!!
My creative vision goes BEYOND the camera shutter..right into the Digital Dark Room where ART pieces emerge…each one reflecting a piece of my soul.

    Great Photo !!!!!!!!!!!! Yes the " GOOD OLD DAYS ". You could also go the store and buy groceries for 20 or 30 bucks and have 5 or 6 paper bags full.

  • I remember in the 50’s…grocery paper bags filled to the top for $10 per bag! NOW…a little bottle of A-1 Steak Sauce is over $5..!!!!
    Thanks for the terrific support and memories, Jan!

    Of course I remember. I should have taken a pic of the old one last week that had painted a decimal change to accomodate the prices. I love this.

  • Thanks for enjoying my walk down memory lane, Kay!

    I know I have been quiet of late, Pat. Hard to keep up with all the hard work of others during our lengthy road trips, then all the time expended on processing on the multitude of photographs taken on the trip. Sorry.

  • No need to apologize, my friend! There is a fabulous life outside RB and THAT’S more important! Just know you are missed & it’s always a pleasure when you “pop” back in now & then!
