I am going to try and catch up on all my buddies blogs as soon as the weekend is here. (Is it Friday yet??)

The Captains closed the Columbia River Bar last night. No ships coming in and no ships going out.

If anyone knows why, when I take a photo of my computer screen, it makes those little checkerboard lines or swirls, can you please tell me? And, is there anything I can do about it?

You can check the status of the Columbia River Bar any time by clicking HERE [columbiariverbarpilots.com] Although I don't think anyone would be nearly as interested in this as I am.

The Coast Guard ship “The Steadfast” out back of the office. I really took this to get the ship anchored underneath the ship lines but a coastie walked right into the shot.

So I waited for him to move and I zoooooomed.

This is the bottom of the walkway. I know the really green stuff is moss, but I forget what the lighter colored stuff is.

And, does this look not too bad for a close up? I'm just starting to try these. It's just as hard as I thought it would be.

      Love #3 (worth the wait!), and you're doing great with the close ups too :)

      The lines in your first shot are something to do with the way LCD screens work I think. The camera is more sensitive than our eyes, so we don't see it. To avoid it in photographs you need to use either a faster or slower shutter speed (sorry can't remember which it is). Try experimenting until they disappear!

      29 foot waves!!! I would have to accept McMommy's answer about the white stuff as I am as clueless as you on that one... but it sure is pretty!

      very nice shots, and the close up is very cool. I love the look of the ship in the distance in #3. :)
