Don't expect too much from this magazine it's an experiment. The high-end photo books can be expensive. I want find out if the magazine format offered by Blurb will work as a lower cost option. This magazine of photos from August 2008 will demonstrate the viability of this option. These photos were taken the weekend of August 8th, 2008 in Frisco, Dillon and Leadville Colorado.
The magazine is 8.5" x 11" has 37 photographs and only 1 paragraphs of text.
Note: The on-line preview doesn't work on iPads or iPhones.

We've had quite a bit of snow along the Colorado front range this past month. Denver recorded 22.2 inches of snow in February breaking the record last set in 1912. We've stayed in the double digit temperatures (20&30's) for most of February but they are calling for single digit temperatures later this week.
I haven't done much of anything productive so far this year. I haven't taken any stunning photos or taken any trips. I have been trying to get back into painting and drawing but have trouble sticking with it. I have been watching a lot of painting & drawing 'How to' videos.
I had to take the cat to the vet a couple of times this year. He developed a couple of red sores around his neck and under his chin. It turns out that he scratched himself. The vet thinks he has a seasonal allergy. After an injection of steroids and an inject of antibiotics he's all well again. They also put some rubber tips, called 'Soft Paws', on his claws.
I've been staying home quite a bit simply because I don't like to go out when it's cold or slippery outside. I'm looking forward to it warming up enough to make it comfortable outside (not too cold & not too hot.) Maybe then I'll put on my French artist cap and go outside and make art.
