I thought you might like that. ~__O

Yes, I do have a new camera, however, a lot of photos from the old one are just fine. The old one drives me toward the asylum bridge - I love it, but the pink tinting is so unpredicatble that I just can't trust it anymore for exterior shots. It seems to work fine for indoor, but I already shot the entire collection of covered bridge in Wisconsin.

Hey J.R. , how have you been ? It would appear that sometime late June or early July you had your camera repaired or started using a new one. You are no longer "pinking". Good looking photos.
