This is a terrific, (mostly) sensible, hallelujah can I get a witness post with advice for women traveling solo. Road Junky, as usual, tells it like it is. For example, on bringing a journal:
So tell your journal all about the delicious club sandwich you had for lunch and spare your friends the boring stories.
If you are overwhelmed by the complexity and breadth of Photoshop, this book will help you narrow the focus and show you just what you need to know to work with your digital photos.

Gena Haskett took a comprehensive look at how you can safely and legally photograph or video record your vote. After you read her primer, grab your camera and whether you vote early or on November 4, we hope you'll share your photos and videos.
I love picture gifts - I admit it. I love to give them and I love to receive them. This may have a little something to do with the fact that in the three years since becoming a digital SLR fanatic I've logged over 20,000 images on my various hard drives. (Don't ask me how many of these actually make it into print, because the percentage would be very, very low. But the ones that have? Priceless.)
So I got a job working from home! It's great I'm a web editor/writer. I'm thinking of picking some extra work from home stuff so I can put aside $ for X-Mas and traveling.
Also, I'm indulging in one of my (many) passions: Photography. If anybody can give me tips on how to get better, let me know as I'm trying to sell my pics on photostock.
Allow me to nerd out for a moment... the G1 from T-Mobile with the open-source Google Android
platform has got hardcore techies and not-so-hardcore phone aficionados
salivating all over themselves. It looks like a serious competitor to
the iPhone, with incredible functionality and a robust operating
system. Whether this is an indication of Google slowly moving to take
over the world is another question entirely. ;-)
To blog or not to blog...blahg, blahg, blahg...After mulling around in the muck and mire of indecision, I have decided to jump into the blogpool and fill more virtual space with my mundane take on Life, or to be specific: Living Nicely! Firmly believing that everything has been said and done somewhere, by someone, I have no expectations of originality or uniqueness for this blog...however, I do believe that even though someone else has been there and done that, it doesn't hurt to try to do it better!
Photography changed my life. My first photography teacher told us that photographs give us the most accurate record of our lives, and I believe this more and more the longer I devote myself to picture-taking. This is why I love looking at other peoples' photographs as much as taking my own, and I especially love to see young people excited about photography.
