Journey of a body on this earth

Screen Resolution

Things have been in a state of flux lately.  Lots of things going on not to mention my camera AND computer are out for repair.  They should be returning any day so yay for that.  I’m so glad that my computer is covered under the Apple Care plan so I won’t have to pay anything for the repair.

One thing I’ve noticed now that I’m on my old 2009 Macbook is how DIFFERENT my images look on this screen.   Compared to my Macbook Pro with Retina Display, it cannot hold a candle to it!  The images look washed out, and nothing like what I see on my regular computer screen which makes them rich with color and so sharp.  It makes me wonder how others are seeing my images.

Here is a flower I reworked the other day on my computer before it went in for repair.  Hope to be back taking pictures soon!

Health Scare

Yesterday I met my camera club at the UC Berkeley Botanical Gardens.  It was an absolutely gorgeous day and I was looking forward to being with the group and taking pictures.

We had just gotten inside the gate, though, when one of the members felt very ill.  He was dizzy and unable to get up.  After about 8 minutes of this or so, I noticed him trying to yawn and he said he was sweaty yet his best friend who was there too felt him and said he wasn’t.  At that point I rushed to the front and called for 911.  The next thing we knew an ambulance arrived and whisked him away to the hospital.

Needless to say I was extremely worried.  😦   I asked the best friend to please contact me and let me know how his friend was doing.  In the meantime the group wanted to take pictures, so in I went in an attempt to take SOMETHING.  Frankly I just could not concentrate so these aren’t the best but I’m posting them anyway for the member.

I did find out later that the member is ok thank GOD!  He had very low magnesium levels, the hospital released him, and he’s going to his doctor to have himself checked out.  What a huge scare though!
