Anyway….. recently I did a sort of my music library on iTunes, and noticed a pretty high number of songs that have never been played. There’s lots of reasons why this is, but it's mostly older CD's recently ripped to digital, and lots of various forms of free stuff. Bottom line: after cleaning up the obvious stuff (such as stuff downloaded for my wife and immediately burned to audio CDs), I was left with over 700 un-played songs out of almost 10,000 on the iPod (7.01% of my library). More than I expected....
Hmmmm, what to do?? Obviously, make a “smart” playlist of songs with a play-count of zero! Which I did, and to which I’ve been listening for the past couple of days. Lots of interesting stuff.

Over the years, I’ve taken images that have ended up in company brochures, sales presentations, training materials, and posters for conferences / trade shows. And I’ve taken countless photos for myself, and even to sell via microstock.
My current company even provides a camera to each office, and encourages us to document projects: before, during and after. Of course, I think it’s a wonderful evolution in the world. Meanwhile, one of my employees recently had to take a quick business trip to Hawaii (I know, but somebody had to go). Along with photos documenting the business, he also took a few images on a quick run by the beach. Since he didn’t clear the memory card before turning the camera in, I’ll just post my favorite of his images here, just 'cause I can:

This image was taken atop Kamiak Butte, on 4/13/2008. A year (and a day) ago. Kamiak Butte was one of my favorite places out there, just 10 miles or so from my apartment. A great place to get away and do some trompingaround.

Last week we made a quick visit to Atlanta... On the way out of town, we made a stop by the High Musuem of Art to see the exhibit of China's Terra-Cotta army. A bit of a wait to get in, but certainly worth it. Sadly (but nor surprisingly), they wouldn't allow any photography in the exhibit area. I took this in the ticket line, looking back out on the entryway....

I rather like this one, it turned out pretty much like I had hoped it would. This is using the B&W conversion built into PSE7.0. I've been thinking about investing in a "real" B&W conversion, but not sure I can bring myself to drop the dough...

My wife took the photos, and did the above collage in Photoshop Elements... I'm going to have to figure out how to do that!!

Kentucky Lake, Land Between The Lakes, KY...... Somewhere down towards the TN border. But not sure exactly where, I was just exploring around with my son. Headed south on "the Trace", down a random side road. Followed it from black-top to gravel, then stopped for some wandering on foot once we reached the lake.

We were in Murray, KY, last weekend, and my son and I found some tome to wander over to Land-Between-The-Lakes. We took a spin through the Elk and Bison prairie, and found a herd! We've seen elk on previous visits, but the bison have been shy. But not this trip.
Not only were the bison "not shy", they were quite unconcerned about us. They wandered up the hill, onto the road, then stopped.... and... just... stood... there... For probably 20 minutes! Fortunately, we had plenty of time, so we just relaxed and enjoyed.
Eventually, whatever sign or signal happened, and they continued across,,,,
We did share the moment(s) with a few other folks (2 other cars), and at one point I caught this woman taking a few images....
