I collected that picture, and it still makes me think of Decker and Spinners every time I go through that folder.

Small-town me would be absolutely lost somewhere like that! I'm not very brave about big cities. The biggest I've driven in is St. Louis, and I just skirted that to go to Henry VIII Inn & Lodge for SF/fantasy/genre conventions. Nowadays, I doubt I'd have the courage.

If I could go anywhere, it would be Ireland, where most of my ancestors came from. I don't know if I'd like the bigger cities, but the countryside and villages would be wonderful. I believed for such a long time that I would get there, but that dream definitely has been put aside. It really is the one place in the world I'd love to visit. Now, close to home, I would spend every weekend at Bristol Renaissance Faire if I could, even if I could only sit beneath a tree. That would be enough. And, I WOULD play my music again. Being in garb would demand it. At Bristol, I was able to blossom.

My wife and I periodically flirt with the idea of going to Ireland.  Our choices for our next trip keep fluctuating.

If you ever go, I shall be anxiously awaiting your photographs! I should start an Ireland folder! That's going to be my next search here.

I hope you will go, as it looks like such an amazing place, with many areas locked in a long-ago time. Even parts of the cities echo the past. I'd have to stock up on batteries and those memory stick things for my trusty little digital camera. I never thought I would want one and bought it originally for selling at eBay and Webstore; I purchased the cheapest, easiest-to-use one at Wal-Mart, and I've never regretted it. I rarely edit pictures except maybe to crop them. Otherwise, most pictures turn out successful enough to suit me, not that I'm all that picky. I'd be terrible trying to work a complicated camera, as I learned with my first 35mm back in the Seventies. What a disaster!

Sometimes we just toss a dart at a world map and that settles where we are going.

I am not a member of the photograph purist club.  I have no problem playing with photos on Photoshop and using them as my canvas.

I've started experimenting with photographs. I was trying to "doctor" one of Pyewacket and had the notion of seeing her "retro", in b&w. I got some positive feedback when people "favorite" it.

I'm going to try some effects, but I'm limited on Photobucket. Sadly, Print Shop won't load on this computer. Darn it! I LOVE Print Shop! Wal-Mart doesn't have an edition that will work, so I'm dreaming of getting a motherboard for the laptop that went out. With it, I could do so much that this notebook won't.

Photoshop stays far too expensive for my pension. *sigh*

I know, it sucks :( It will take me a long time to save up enough, but it's worth it. Where's your favorite place in Japan that you've visited so far?

That was a tough question. Although I highly enjoyed visiting Tokyo, I only felt like I was having a genuine traditional Japanese experience in a resort inside a volcano in Hakone. Thats where I slept on the floor on a genuine tatami mat filled with hay. There were communal baths. People ate together in a big room where people were seated according to their room number. Genuine traditional food was served. And, in the volcano, people took mud baths for therapy.

I'm inclined to agree with you :) I really enjoyed my time in the cities like Osaka and Tokyo, but the more rural areas really had such a charm and feeling to them that just took you back in time. I love the culture there. That's awesome you got to experience that! Hakone sounds really neat! I never did the communal baths or got to sleep on the tatami mats (my host family insisted I take their daughter's bed since I was a guest).

Hopefully we both get to visit again in the near future :)
