KIT CARSON (testing)

Riding Into The Sunset

I was just poking around in my AOL YGP albums and I came across this old favorite of mine of the Kit Carson statue on Fort Carson.  It was one of the first pictures taken with my Nikon shortly after I got it early last year.  Originally I posted the picture in black and white, but reposted it in color (no, that is not the natural color of the sunset, I increased the contrast and red tones for effect).  I also deleted the telephone poles and power lines to give an unobstructed view of the mountains in the distance.

Actually the real purpose behind the reposting of this picture was to test out the method of posting pictures directly from a YGP album, and it works great!  It comes at the perfect time too, I've almost used up all of my FTP space.

speaking of which.. what happens when we use all the ftp space??  I've thought of that a number of times since i use so many pictures.???

(you have to love editing pictures in any paint program.. i know I do too!)

The alleged dying words of Kit Carson?
"Wish I had time for just one more bowl of chili."

That's a great photo. I use Photobucket which gives around five times the space of FTP. Have a good weekend. Jeannette xx
