This is my favorite song quote from the 1975 Diana Ross film Mahogany. It says a lot about my current situation.
As you can see I’m still using a walker. And as it turns out, I will soon be having surgery on my right knee; a total knee replacement. Hopefully my recent fall on my left knee will not require additional surgery.
Sorry that I missed my August posting, I’ve been very distracted due to my continuing health issues. I also have an update on my vision. I am now legally blind, but with my husband’s help I am able to continue to blog. The proton beam radiation treatment for my tumor has damaged my optic nerves, leaving partial degraded vision in the right side and no vision in the left. As you can guess, this has made photography challenging, but not impossible. I persevere! I have even heard of blind photographers. I will have to investigate their work.
My February 2021 offering to the Frugal Film Project. Almost didn’t make the deadline last week, but fortunately my film turnaround time at Old School Photo Labs was quick. Thank you guys! So here it is:
Gross Dam & Reservoir
On one of our afternoons wandering the Foot Hills of the Rocky Mountain Front Range, we ventured to one of our favorite sights: Groos Dam and Reservoir.
The Gross Dam is part of an extensive network of reservoirs that supply the Denver Water System. It was named for Denver Water former Chief Engineer Dwight D. Gross.
Approved for expansion July 2020. The design of the addition is expected to be completed in 2021. It will add 10 feet to the height of the dam.
These may be the last Nikon=D40 images posted here. We made a little get away trip to Pueblo, Colorado. And I thought I had captured some very interesting images. But no, the camera had malfunction. I tried to reset is but in the end only capture a few useable images. This wall art probably turned out best:
The girl appeared one her own last month as a #WednesdayWindow:
We arrived home safe and sound last night. After being stopped by a storm and multiple accidents in NM the day before, with clear rods and skies we decided to make the ~600 mile drive from Galllup, NM to Boulder County last night. Had some snow on the way, but less than an inch and easily drivable.
No, this wasn’t the snow that greeted us last night. This image is from a late snow last Spring. But still a very comforting view of Home……..
OK, so my Birthday was in May. Those of us that use film know that rolls sometimes aren’t finished in a timely fashion. But these were beautiful, sent to me by my eldest brother and his wife………….Back in May. It was my 60th Birthday, so I wanted to highlight them:
