    Still pretty cool looking. I can only image how good the original looked.

    Sounds good. Looking forward to it.
    I believe this is the only remaining photo from the set of Goonies and it is a scan of a weathered print.

The bad news is that the slides from the time I stumbled on the filming of Goonies appear to be lost. Boy, I wish I still had those. I also still have a pretty good collection of Cokin slides. Once I get an adapter to allow them to fit the current camera I will get more creative.

    I do have a personal website. it is currently fully dedicated to my wife. At some point I will probably start sharing both old and new photos there.

    All Greek to me but I'll still be here owwwing and ahhhing. Not a creative gene in my body. So I'm left to bask in the glow of others.

    At this point I basically know "point and shoot" and the processing and developing is all done via Adobe. I am re-acquainting myself with different techniques of taking pictures and once I have that down I will purchase Adobe and begin learning that side of things.

    That's awesome. I have a great appreciation for photography done well. It's always been more to my liking vs paintings and whatnot.

    Thanks. I am trying to get back into photography so I plan on taking several trips this summer and taking lots of pictures. I used to be a pretty good photographer but between what I have forgotten and the photo technology changing to digital I am almost starting from scratch.

    Decided to go for a drive today. Have been thinking about going to White River Falls but it would be a five hour round trip drive. Opted instead for Horse Thief Lake along the Columbia river and took some new photos of the petroglyphs.
    First up is Horse Thief Butte above the lake.

    There were a few climbers on the Butte:

    Before The Dalles damn was built in the 1950's several of the petroglyphs were extracted from the valley and placed above the water line. Several more are buried in the Columbia river. Over the last several years I have noticed what appears to be an accelerating deterioration of the petroglyphs. I believe they are in an area that is overly exposed to the elements. Here are a few that still look good.

    Perfect weather today. A few clouds and 70 degrees!
