A Journal For Charlie

The Fuzzy Foto

Rita and I invite you to visit

The Fuzzy Foto

A blog where I dump photographs that don’t fit into my home here.

Rita has an opinion about The Fuzzy Foto

But … she is a kept parrot.   To her everlasting dismay, hers is not the majority opinion.  She has condescended, however, to make an occasional appearance.

Thank you

George and Rita

  1. I’m a firm advocate that there is a place for “snap shots” on blogs (that includes 99.9% of my photos too LOL) I never think of myself as a professional photographer and my blog like yours, is literally a snap-shot of our lives with the aim to share and make people happy.
    Rita is either imitating a cat (I’ll-show-my-face-when-and-where- *I*-want-to) or has imaginings of herself as a film star… face it George, you are the Paparazzi and treated as such :)

  2. I love your blog, have decided to follow it, and am going to recommend it to my Mum, too. She is just starting out as an octegenarian (?) blogger. Love your photos, your parrot, your humour (both of you) and the dark look of your blog. :-)

    • Your mom is in her eighties? Fantastic. I wish her well. What is the title of her blog?

      I’m glad you like my little stories and the zoo around here. I will investigate your blog when I get my act together…

      Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to chat! :-)

      • Hi George – no problem. I am utterly in awe of your photos. Do you edit them in Photoshop / Lightroom? What’s the secret? Why do they look so sumptuous and sensual – the plant ones, in particular??? Do you live in Eden (it appears so)?
        My Mum’s URL is http://mavisstilling33.wordpress.com (I don’t know how to turn that into a link) and it’s called ‘A Patchwork Quilt’. I have only just taught her how to add tags to her posts so she could do with a few visitors. :-)

          • The early photographs (The Stripper) were only edited in Picassa or Snapseed for added color saturation and basic noise removal, etc. Yes, I use Photoshop now, but I use the Nik and Topaz plug-ins with Photoshop heavily. I like them for clarity, color, and noise removal. I particularly like the Topaz filter that removes UV haze for clearer images. I am no very good at graphics manipulation so what I do is fairly basic. Thank you very much, Lorna. :-)

            • Well thank you for sharing that, George. I use Photoshop & Lightroom, but for my blog I am enjoying taking ‘snaps’. I used to do photography for a living, and now that I’m not, I’m rather enjoying taking bad snapshots. It feels very liberating! Meanwhile I do regard yours with a certain amount of envy… :-)

              • Well, a good photograph need little editing. My photos are snapshots too. I snap what I see. I think different folks see things from different perspectives. I also like deep color and shadow. ;-) Sometimes, I am slightly aghast at the photos that I post! Thanks, Lorna.

    Hi, there! Very unique pictures and nice close up shots. You have inspired me to buy nikon macro lens for my esthetic dentistry photos.

    • IF you are in Victoria, I have a Nikkor 105mm that I’d be happy for you to try before you decide. :-) Thanks!

  8. George, I’m so glad you found me again, I’m also from Victoria, Australia that is. The elections are well and truly over now, what have you been out capturing lately?

    • I felt right at home when I saw the signature vultures again! I’m still smiling about them. I am the quintessential hermit, you know. If it lives within ten miles of my house, I find it. Otherwise, I consider it to belong to the world at large. I”m happy to have found your blog again! Thanks for the visit! Be seeing you soon! George

    Excellent composition. I am trying to catch up on comments & visits as well. Nothing lose one’s head over, but you know how I worry that I offended someone. :D

    November 9, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    • I’m sure I DO offend, but what’s one to do? I’m what I am. I need to catch up too. I’ve been involved in watching the election stuff here. Thanks.

  13. Hello! I could not get into your post “If I were a painter, I would paint a blossom” other than what I got via e-mail. But I did stumble on your Fuzzy Foto which you had mentioned somewhere. I stumble around quite a bit on WordPress but I do eventually learn! lol And I am glad I did as I like your rejects and I’ll be back if I can find my way. Rita expresses herself well! Have a great day!

  14. I just saw somebody on Charlene’s blog wondering how in the world you keep up with answering every comment and visiting everybody! I’ve had your last post open in a tab for two or three days! Like Rita’s attitude here? She’d funny. Thanks, Madhu! I’m having the best time dumping my fotos on The Fuzzy Foto! :-) Shame on me. I have to go visiting!!

  15. Thank you and Rita for the gracious invitation. It shall be my pleasure :-)

    June 25, 2012 at 3:15 am

    • Madhu, on June 25 you posted on my “Parrot” blog’s “About” page. I am just reading it now! How far behind am I? WOW. I may never catch up. Thanks for visiting and putting up with me. :-)
