Well, after many go rounds with the technicians from Microsoft the only way we could fix my computer was to do a clean install of the operating system. The good part is that all my data are on not on the C drive. My computer C drive is an SSD drive and contains mostly the operating system and program files and all my files are on a 1 Tb D drive, and my pictures are all on external drives. The only problem was now I had to reinstall my program files, Office, Lightroom, Photoshop, etc. that has been taking up all of my time. So I am up and running.
I am packing for my trip to the Columbia River Gorge with Joseph Rossback Photography. I have always wanted to visit this area in order to photograph the rainforest, waterfalls and spring flowers. it will be a busy trip photographing from sunrise to sunset . then once I come home I have to get everything cleaned and repacked for a trip to the Rio Grande Valley of Texas with a friend of mine Larry Ditto.
I read an interesting article today from the Digital Photography School entitled "Finding Gold in Your Image Archives" this article hit very close to home. Since I have been reviewing old pictures keywording and the leading out of focus pictures, but I have found pictures that I have either not post processed in the past or now have reprocessed and have gotten a better image.

While I'm away. I will try post blogs on my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Photo-Bee-1-Photographing-the-Natural-World-Around-Us/191608700932223, and then when I return I will also send out links. The reason for that is I do not use Outlook on my laptop and I have to find a way to import my mail list onto my email server.
