This is me, taking photos of our show and tell and president's challenge offerings. Actually, at this moment I'm setting my aperture and shutter speed. I shoot these images on manual mode in RAW format. I use Aperture with Nik Software plug-ins for processing.
Walt Betley, my neighbor from across the street and the wonderful gentleman who got me interested in wood turning. Walt's been turning for about 75 years now. Steve captured Walt perfectly - always a smile and something smart to say.
Fred Dutton demonstrated hat making - not an easy thing to do on a mini lathe.
Jim Burrowes and Barbara Crockett did the beginner's corner. The topic was natural edge bowls.
This beautiful goblet was turned by Dennis DeVendra. Dennis is blind and I'm amazed at how accomplished a turner he's become in the past year.
For more pics of the evening, check out the photo album on my Facebook wood turning page:

I thought my readers might enjoy the comments that are posted on my Flickr page with regards to the history and uniqueness of Orton Hall. Click on the picture to navigate to the Flickr site.
I took this photo just after sunrise this morning. It's an HDR of three photos plus some post processing using the Nik software plug-ins for Aperture. Enjoy!

I finally had time to take a photo of my most recent sphere in the series, "When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be." - Lao Tzu. This one is #6.
You can click on the image to go to my Flickr set that has examples of my recent turnings. Some of the turnings in this album are available through del Mano or Arrowmont. This one is currently in my possession. Inquire if you're interested in adding it to your collection.
