Greetings loyal friends, faithful followers and random stumble uponers! Nope. Sorry. This isn't a PINK MAGIC blog, though I promise one is coming soon. I've been busy...

I've finally decided to try and turn my photography hobby into some supplementary income. To that end, I've set up some new social media accounts...

Twitter - @PhotosByWLG - This is up and running. I'm...

@shinyarmour90, @littlejohn22, thanks guys!

So Mrs. DeadGuitarist started her new job with Faraday Futures yesterday. Her official title is Program Manager.

She also found out she's traveling to Los Angeles every week for at least the next 6 weeks (probably Tuesday mornings returning Thursday evenings.

I bowl on Tuesday nights, but I'm free on Wednesday nights. Anyone want to hang with me on a Wednesday night sometime...

@skisby... Oh, I expect that no one will take me up on that offer. So I'll probably head out to the Clark County Wetlands Park, which is only like 5 miles from where I work, and take landscape, wildlife and sunset photos until the park closes at dusk. Grab some food on the way home. After eating I'll either continue processing photos while watching some movie I've seen 50 times, or pull a guitar off the wall, plug in and wail for an hour or two.  Oils also do 30 minutes of cardio boxing or other exercises.

Dude I would definitely hang out if I wasn't so far away! Enjoy your free time, brother. 

Mine and Mrs. DeadGuitarist's 23rd Wedding Anniversary is coming up in just under a month (14 May). Because I figured she'd ask me what I'd like as a gift, I had been thinking about it lately. Saturday she asked me if I wanted to get a tattoo, thinking I wanted a bass clef on my left arm to "match" the treble clef...

That looks awesome :)

Congratulations on the upcoming anniversary. 

Happy Easter Everyone! However you celebrate Easter, I hope it was a good day for you. I had a lazy Easter Sunday, doing laundry in between naps. I also worked on a new project... more about that in just a bit.

Two weeks ago, Mrs. DeadGuitarist and I went to Death Valley. We got a late start, but that gave me an opportunity to try...

Happy Easter brother @deadguitarist. I've actually had a day completely to myself this weekend. Which is a first in about the last couple years. Hope you and Mrs had a lovely weekend 😃

Dang, some excellent shots especially the silhouette!

Who wants this?

Holographic Hair

Is there a more perfect t-shirt for @sundew than this one?

That shirt is awesome! :D

Mrs. DeadGuitarist and I had a full Saturday agenda even though only one thing was planned.

Let me start with a quick mention of Friday. We got a refund check of several hundred dollars from one of our creditors. Apparently, we overpaid our account (or I should say the debt management company we hired to help us get mostly out of debt overpaid the account...

@asteria, I bowl in two leagues this winter season. Taking summer off this year. My right shoulder hurts every time I bowl. Has been since November. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. Will have it checked out sometime after May 3 when I see my PCP and she puts in an prefer for an MRI and refers me to an orthopedist. Death Valley was nice, but Mrs.  and I got in a bit of a row (100% my fault) part way through the day so it wasn't as much fun as it could have been. More on Death Valley in a blog coming soon.
asteria:
Well at least you admit fault! I think it's a good quality to have. To be aware enough to know when you're wrong.🙂

I've been around, commenting on a few photosets, group threads, PMs and a few blog posts. I even managed a couple of blog posts. I've got more coming as there are some very interesting blog homework topics I want to catch up on and I will have a new PINK MAGIC in the next week or two (not this week though, too busy...

Cool update, I did have to look up what a cartouche was though! Learned something new!
deadguitarist:
@skisby, they are pretty cool. My wife recently had hers rhodium plated for a white gold appearance since she doesn't wear yellow gold any more.

Got it done by Pamela Hannam. She is my wife's hair stylist and now mine. She's also a bodybuilder and one awesome lady.

Because I want the color to be as close to white as possible, it always burns, but it's so worth it! The cut wasn't quite as high and tight (Marine style) as I like, but I can fix

yes looks awesome

Thanks , @littlejohn22

It's been a long time since I've been to Death Valley. I went there on a Geology field trip when I was in junior college on Thanksgiving weekend. That was probably 1981, though it could have been 1982.

Time to go back.

So, I'm planning to head out to Death Valley on 01 April 2017 for a day of photography. I think...

@littlejohn22, yes, there is camping ⛺️ and a couple of lodges/hotels inside the park for those who want to stay in the park but aren't campers.

Sounds awesome, I've always been intrigued by Death Valley.
