I guess this counts.....a further trawl of the archive.

One from the Panasonic GF1 which I took years ago:

Some families in Nicaragua don't just stick their dead in the ground.  Family mausoleum, taken in the dry season.

 

Another of the Jinotega Municipal Cemetario showing more of the hills around town.

At the top of the mountain is a cross and since this photo was made, a mirador.   Walking up to Peña de la Cruz is a common hike for tourists and locals, but there is a road on the back of the mountain.   Some people live uphill from the cemetery and give directions on how to get to the cross.

Some shots from a very arduous and challenging hike/scramble above Makapuu on the East end of Oahu, Hawaii. Taken in October but uploaded in December

When someone gives your wife a bunch of roses, obviously they have to be photographed!

My son drew a self-portrait... I photographed it and decided to upload because you never know....a-childs-self-portrait-drawing-in-colourful-felt-tip-pens-2DJA9AK.jpg

 

My son recorded a song for our church... so of course, had to take a photo!

These are some of the first pictures I took with my digital camera. I'm looking at some earlier photos more closely and uploading a few.

love the self portrait.  Curious as this is 2d art, wouldn't you require some "context" around,   I assume the artist won't sue you, but you never know....

I have a property release! I even clicked 'yes' to the property question and 'yes' to having a release in AIM. I'd like to think that a little bit of common sense applies too. And I guess this is a little akin to uploading vector graphics.

This one isn't showing up as on sale yet, or in my blue numbers, but it's one I took in rural Virginia before I left the US, and the only thing I had of the original shot on film was a smallish scan.  Massaged it, enlarged it in Photoshop, wondering about the cars as modern technological ghosts against an 18th Century house, and sent it in to Alamy and then researched and found that the house had quite a past and was now an event hotel.   The addition on the right is 20th century.  And a window was probably cemented over on what's now a bathroom.   Hillsboro, Virginia, national historical district expansion area.

 

At one time in the 19th Century, the house's stone was stuccoed over and a hundred years later removed.

I uploaded some of my own skies and have to say the sky replacement tool really saved this image taken on a gray soggy day - nothing like spending a week at the beach to take photos and having it rain or drizzle nearly every day. Gray skies do not sell travel scenics so gotta love this new tool.

Let's go for a splash of colours. Rain is forecast on Christmas day but so far so good.

Mmmmm... home cooking. The moral: don't take a phone call while there's pizza in the oven...

Thought you needed a special oven for pizzas.

So did lots of folks till needs must!

John may indeed have on, but no, a large, very hot frying pan, followed by topping and a go under a hot grill does the job. Been doing it every Friday since you-know-when.

It does not appear that John used a frying pan? I would at least have placed it on a tray.

No, it doesn't look like the frying pan shape. But you need to cook the base through quite quickly before the topping goes on. Perhaps he grills it and flips it over. More than one way, etc.,etc.

Ah right. I have not cooked a pizza before so on a learning curve here. Thank you. Something to try in the New Year.
