Random Ranch Revue

A place to post the leftovers before I lose them in the black hole that is my Pictures folder.


Green acres is the place to be



Kickin' ass



George works his mohawk



The safest place to be in a storm is under mom's desk



Smooch in the first light of day



Choose wisely, Grasshopper.


Post processing: 1. Clone tool and spot healing brush to wash the window; 2. PW's Dim the Lights action on the background; 3. MCP's High Definition Sharpening action; 4. PW's Warmer action at 40%; 5. PW's Boost action at 35%; 6. PW's Quick Edge Burn at 15%.

  2. I know that black hole very well.

    PW's actions are working well for you! I am able to use them with my older version of PS but most of them don't work like they should. Oh well.

    Do you have any unshared photos of Deets left?

    And Hank. Remains my favorite hunk o' paint.

  5. You live in such a beautiful part of the state. And your photos always show it off to the max. I see you have created chicken envy in an unnamed donkey lover. I just love waking up to the two of you and your lovely photos of close by.

  12. I LOVE this site!
    But I am an east coast city girl and I need a serious remedial course in critters.
    Are burros all donkeys?
    Are George and Alan different kinds of donkeys/burros?
    Do you have any mules?
    Any goats at 7msn?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  16. These are delightful! The first one is magnificent. After reading MeMaw's comment I had to look at Grasshopper again - she's right! There is a cat face!!!

  19. Like the random pictures. Maybe you need to dig in that black hole more. My favorite is the sunlight on Smooch.

  20. Gorgeous hues in your photos Linda...you get better every day!

  21. Don't bother posting this publicly but I want to say: You have courage. I learn from you every day. We do not need to know what happened to Deets. That is your business as well as your pain and I respect and honor your silence.
    May peace be with you and all those you love: past, present and future.

  22. Several comments:
    It is so refreshing to see the bright greens (and blue sky) in your photos, especially as the summer heat is burning everything up :( Glad you are getting rain, but hope trenches aren't needed!
    My dog's favorite spot is also under my legs while sitting at the computer. Saw your comment on PW's site. How true. Chaps/chinks do help you "bond" with the saddle!
