My daughter, Christy, and her husband, Bernie, recently returned from a camping trip in eastern Washington.
A few photos from our trip to eastern Washington.
My Mac comes with a quick but limited photo editing program. It is not as sophisticated as Photoshop but it is very easy to use. On the "effects" matrix I can:
|4) Fade color|

|10) Maximum Shadow|
|11) Or Just Leave It Alone|

PS: It's hard to see clearly in these quick shots, but the guy who was watching Obama's speech at Notre Dame accompanied him to Moscow, too.
Our condo was paid a surprise visit by some of Watcharee's hair dressers. They are a giggly cute group.
Next: Part II
