I’ve made some headway with Charles Reeves memoir, as far as copying the text to this site. I’m about halfway now and with luck I get about 5 pages per day. That translates to about 20 something more days at that rate.
I think I mentioned that I went with my Mom to a writers exhibition called the Tucson Book Fair and on our layover in Vancouver I was fortunate to meet a couple of family members, albeit family members a bit removed. One of the ladies I had been emailing back and forth with, exchanging family information. Fay H., the distant cousin, invited me to her home to share with me some of her family history. She had also invited my Great-Aunt Delores to join us, the wife of one of Charles Reeves sons. What a great treat to meet and talk to both of them.
Delores has since given me the contact information of one of her nieces, Noreen, the holder of the original Charles Reeves memoir. I will certainly get in touch with her to talk family. Maybe she’ll lend me some photos to copy and put on here.
I took some photos the other day of a nearby creek. I was playing with the shutter speed and trying to get the motion of the water to blur and was partially successful. I think I need another run at it to perfect. These were taken at 1/10 of a second, I think at least a second or so exposure might be better. Apparently the slower the shutter speed the better.
The picture below is the same creek just a different location and a wider view.
