August has been a tough month, in weather conditions and technology problems.  I won't go into weather conditions except that it was great for taking photos of clouds.  Tonight's sky display was luscious!  Vibrant tints of  peaches, apricots, strawberries on creamy clouds with spikes of  lightning.  It was impossible to not take hundreds of photos tonight.

Computers, on the other hand, are currently a muddy shade of murk.  3 weeks of crashes, technicians, loss of files, stalled and unresponsive programs along with  hidden conflicts has led me in search of a new computer.  Linux has been recommended but I am tech-challenged.  Finding a computer that is not loaded with games and media programs is difficult.  A Mac Desktop, my premier choice, is out of my price range. Build-your-own with Windows software is a challenge beyond my range financially or mentally. 

I have fallen in love with photography, especially conceptual.   It is essential for me  to have a computer with programs such as Photoshop and that can handle large files as I am now beginning to work with HDR.  I admit I am addicted to experimenting with dimensional images  and want to try Stereograms in a more complex manner than dots or cartoons.  A computer is an essential tool in this endeavor. 

 August, as it turns out, has been  non-productive for me.  September offers better prospects when I replace my computer which might be in the bottom of the trash barrel by then.
