My computer was (re)formatted this week. While everyone has Internet faster than the speed of light these days, mine only seemed to slow down more and more, till it got to a point where I could go and make myself a cup of coffee between the loadings of pages. My brother blames it on Bill Gates. I blame it on my downloading of 1000 and 1 free programs. Now that I have formatted the computer, and am back to zero, I have to download the bare essentials (for me); Picasa.
Some of you sometimes comment on the lovely photos I make, but although I’d love to take all the credit, most have been pulled though Picasa. Such as these, made yesterday on the slopes of Feraya; 6 Degrees, sunshine, good snow, few people (on the Wardeh slopes) and only one traffic jam. Holland is currently in a Siberian time zone, with -20 Celcius in some places. - 13 C in my hometown. I miss the Dutch winters (now and then), but luckily the snow is just 55 km away.
We’re not getting any younger, Marijke and I. We’ve known each other since 1990 if I am correct, but she’s got a better memory than I have. And that’s why I thought this 60’s filter (which comes straight out of Picasa) was appropriate. Two old bags in the ski-lift.
