We all came to RetouchPro.com because we are interested in editing photos -- retouching new or old images, restoring damaged images, or creating painterly impressions from a photo.

Everything we do here starts with the photographic image.

The image came first. That is where my fascination still lies.

Maru is a Scottish Fold cat who lives in Japan with housemates who take photos and videos of his daily activities - nice photography and funny videos. Video is required to show certain behaviors performed by Maru - such as shoving his body into boxes, bags, glasses, etc. Watch those hind feet as they splay outwards behind him when he dives headfirst into an empty box.

Photojojo

has a twice-a-week newsletter aimed at sharing ideas for taking pictures. Today's idea looks at adding an object to a background that creates a connection between the two. Their example focuses on a photographer -- Horst (hb19 on Flickr) who "finds the perfect sky or set of clouds and gives them their object counterpart. The cloud shooting out from a bottle’s top. The sun’s perfect, shiny orb behind his ET-like finger. The fluffy ice-cream cloud on top of its cone....

My brother died last Sunday. (Aug. 31st, 2008)

His diagnosis of myeloma cancer had been a shock, although he and I knew his weight loss might be due to some form of cancer, but his downhill dive while in the hospital (pneumonia and other infections) surprised him and all of us. He was (only) 69, and we had relatives who lived well into their 80's; he had been a career military man - strong, active, and only slightly damaged during his tours; he certainly prided himself on his strength...

Timing is very important in photography. Getting up early, or waiting late in the day for a certain quality of light is common for photographers, as is waiting for the "right" moment in action sports photography, nature photography, and street photography.

I've been waiting for the "right" time to visit Utah's Arches National Park, but it seems that I missed my "moment"...
