With the threat by Microsoft to abandon security updates on Windows XP, went and bought a copy of Windows 7, which I'm running on my laptop, to convert my old desktop PC, which was XP. I was rather apprehensive about doing this, but it only took less than an hour to install. That was the easy bit - but I'm spending ages re-installing my software, settings and files, most of the latter being some 23,000+ images & Raw files!
Anyway, between doing the above, fiddled about with a few flower images I took in the Museum Gardens on a day out to York three weeks ago - how different the weather is now, it's grey, dismal and cold!
I'd like to thank LynneJoyce
for inspiring me with her beautiful presentations
