I Won’t Mention the ‘C’ Word

Cannon Beach, Oregon.

If your email in box is anything like mine it’s been completely overrun this week. Every business imaginable seems to be emailing to tell me what they are doing about this virus. Quite a few of these I haven’t heard from for years and some I’ve never heard of. This may sound callous, but I’m … Continue reading I Won’t Mention the ‘C’ Word

These then become quite exaggerated when processed hard with Nik filters. In … Continue reading Revenge of the EM5
