Photo of the Week

This week’s top photo came from Maru Animal Park in Australia. You can’t visit Australia without getting to pet a koala, and this was Jim, the sleepy koala that my husband and I got to meet. I snuck this shot between the branches where he was snoozing.

      It’s a great photo Kevin! Definitely hurts when you realize your settings are messed up. I went through a day in Australia where I had some little piece of dust on the sensor, so all of my pictures from that day have a fuzzy S in them. Some were easy to edit in Lightroom, but others are just impossible to fix. :( Don’t be discouraged though – it happens to all of us. :)

    Hi, Kristi.

    Love the video and your photo of the koala. Would love to see one up close somebody. :)

    And as usual, your roundup is great. Having clipped them to Evernote, so I can look up all of them later when I am done with my Google Reader’s offerings, I visited one first that really caught my eye. Stephanie Sammons’ 7 Character Traits of Top Bloggers. I so enjoyed the post and the blogger that I subscribed to it immediately. Thanks for introducing me to her, Kristi. :)
