The Processing and Projects Weekend

There would be no repeat of last weekend’s wonderful photography weekend here in South Texas.  Solid rain Saturday.  Deep fog Sunday morning with thunderstorms predicted for the afternoon (which ultimately didn’t materialize).  That meant that this would be a weekend of rest, photo processing, and completing a couple of indoor projects that have been started in recent weeks and months but have not been completed.  Oh, and maybe a football game Sunday afternoon.

The highlights?  Finishing processing of the best of the images from last weekend.  For the first time in years I am one month into the year and I have no backlog of images from the current year.  Never mind I’ve only shot once this year, I’m still caught up 🙂

I also managed to move a big chunk of legacy portfolio images into my new structure.  Yes, the word “new” is stretching reality a bit–the current portfolio structure has been in place since mid-2013.  But there were (and still are) a lot of images to move and ensure that I have accurate keywords and descriptions attached.  Generally when given the choice between administrative work and making new images, I pick getting out into the field.

I’m hoping for better fortune next weekend.  As good as it was to get caught up, I’m looking forward to getting behind again…

About the Image:
This Inca Dove (Columbina inca) was shot towards the end of my shoot at South Llano River State Park.  The harsh shadows were starting to make their appearance by this point, but it is still a nice image of a pretty dove.  Camera settings were ISO 400, 1/320 sec at f/10.  It comes in as Image #190 in the portfolio.  The final number after the weekend was 219 (and growing).

    Beautiful dove. I’ve never seen that one. We just have Mourning Doves, plain and ringed. The photo is wonderful.

      Thanks. They are very much a south Texas specialty. White-winged doves seem to be a dime a dozen (and we’re looking for the guy that is handing out the dimes), but it is a special opportunity to make images of the Incas.
