Classic Car at Camp Curry

I was at Yosemite National Park a few years ago and saw this classic car in Camp Curry.

That’s a bummer…

I am really fond of the Microsoft PhotoInfo tool.  It was quick to load, easy to use, and did a lot of useful stuff.

It seems that it isn’t compatable with IE7.  Drat and damn.  I just switched to a new and faster desktop for the express purpose of better digitial photography work flow and and one of my favorite Q&D tools doesn’t work on it.

I’m open to suggestions on replacement tools.  I’ll also try uninstalling IE7.  I use Firefox and Chrome pretty much exclusively anyway.

Update: I’ve found the replacement for it. The Microsoft “Pro Photo Tool.”  Many of the same features, but you have to launch the app and then load the photos.  Easier for batch work, but I liked being able to quickly right click photos and update them.

Paddington: The Station and the Bear

I was in London a few years back and the hotel I was in was right next to Paddington Station.

Now if you have kids, you probably know who Paddington Bear is.  The bear is named after the station, because that is where he is found in the original story.   There is a statue of Paddington Bear in Paddington Station.

Of course I took a picture. 🙂
