    Will you subscribe to Adobe CC?

    You need a fifth choice. Keep using Adobe's products but continue to use versions you purchased and own the license to use outright and have no plans to use the cloud. That's my choice. I have the CS5 Master Suite and am a beta tester for LR5. I won't pay no cloud fee even though I have close...

    Photoshop moving to cloud/subscription service only.

    Yes, that's quite a film. Personally I think the conclusion is flawed, but it's still an interesting film.

    Photoshop moving to cloud/subscription service only.

    Two things: 1. Use an older version of the software. 2. Shoot film.

    A Photographers vehicle?

    What's a photographers vehicle? Whatever you've got. Quit dreaming about what you don't have and go out and shoot. This thread has lots of cool trucks but the more you spend on the vehicle the less time and money you've got to go and photograph. If you care about the all...

    A backcountry trip to Utah sells the wife on overlanding!

    Two things: 1. You married a keeper. What an awesome woman to want to share that adventure with you. 2. You had an awesome adventure. So glad that you cut your teeth in such an amazing part of Utah.

    I had a FREE 300TD sedan...complete. The 5-cyl. motor even ran well and I decided it would be too expensive. This will be fun/interesting to watch. Good luck!

    School me on buying a used canoe

    Oh I dunno...that Coleman has drink holders! I don't know if there's a particular 'way to go' on your first canoe. Just get whatever feels right knowing that you'll be able to sell it for pretty much what you put into it.

    School me on buying a used canoe

    Those paddles are way too long for a canoe. They are designed to be used on a Stand-up Paddleboard....IOW, you are standing on essentially a surf board and using that looooong paddle to move around with. The length is 52 inches and won't work for you. See if the seller has any paddles...I'll...

    School me on buying a used canoe

    That is a perfect starter canoe. Take cash, offer him $300 and have him throw in some beater paddles. I think it's interesting you and FAW3 have memories of the aluminum canoes being hot. I learned to paddle in northern Utah and only remember them being cold. That's a sweet little Old...

    School me on buying a used canoe

    Some thoughts: Aluminum canoes are cold as sin when you're sitting in them. Also, if you're fishing they transmit the tiniest noise into the water very, very well. Also when you bang against the sides when you're paddling (occasionally we all get sloppy/lazy), it's loud and broadcasts across...

    Vanagon Owners - check your wiring...

    Apparently they are prone to 'shorts'. Please act accordingly. I cried when I saw the photo.

    1992 Montero nicely equipped

    That is the first Montero I've seen that made me want a Montero. Dang, and in Portland too...we could come up and see friends if I was in a purchasing position. Good luck with the sale!

    Two Summer Solo Exhibits - Utah

    Thanks Jay. I got a call from the Lee Library...they have space available to hang my show a month earlier than it's really going up on 6/11 rather than on 7/6. A month extra won't hurt I guess. :)

    Two Summer Solo Exhibits - Utah

    I am pleased to announce two upcoming solo exhibits of mine this summer. The first is work from my Great Salt Lake Photographic Survey. The work that I will be exhibiting has not been shown before and has a piece from 1998 as well as current work. All of the nineteen prints are from film...

    Expeditions 7: Two Years Around the World on all Seven Continents.

    Holy crap, can't you guys be a little patient with the team? I mean hell, if all they did was update the website from their expedition they wouldn't be actually DOING any 'expeditioning'. Updating a website, editing images, generating text, this all takes TIME...of which there is precious...
