From Cycling Experiences to jalexartis Photography, 12/06

Times are a changing…

Thanks to people at Automattic [owners of WordPress.Com], my recently migrated CE Blog was trashed as it related to photographs in blog article galleries. I fixed all of November’s galleries and a few at the end of October.

The source blog for the migration is intact. I am using this blog [the one migrated from CE],  for photography. Essentially, of late, I have blogged more with pictures anyway–no more cycling here[as I  expunge related articles and others not pertaining to photography]. The process takes time. If I have cycling post, they will be in the Cycling Experiences Blog

I intend that Cycling Experiences remain online for the foreseeable future. I trust my readers will be here with me [and there for occassional pieces]. Thank you for your continued support.

Best!

Thanks to Ms. Helene G. Smith, Director, for hiring me and to my friend, Janet Major-Ferritto, for referring me. Best to both of you and the members of your choir.

Be blessed…

Technology ~ iPad Pro 12.9 [3rd Generation], 11/22

Replacement device for iPad Pro 10.9, sold 11/04.

unboxing

I expect my greatest use of this iPad will be the remote control of the Canon EOS 6D through CamRanger. The LiveView Screen size is significantly larger and of course, increased speed [along with CamRanger 2–due sometime in 2019] will allow me to take pictures more rapidly. My initial impressions are very positive. I should take my first pictures with this 12.9 Pro this weekend.

Photography ~ Lake Glenville– A Fayetteville, North Carolina Drinking Water Source, 11/21

Do you know where our drinking water comes from?

The Public Works Commission (PWC) Watershed staff manages four lakes and a wetland pond – Bonnie Doone Lake, Kornbow Lake, Mintz Pond, Glenville Lake and Mallard Creek Wetland Pond. These areas are part of the Fayetteville drinking water supply watershed. The PWC staff co-manages Big Cross Creek and portions of the Cape Fear River. Out-flow from Lake Glenville is the Little Cross Creek.

Fayetteville’s current Watershed Management Program was established in January 1990 to ensure high quality water supplies for PWC’s water plants. PWC has two water treatment plants, the P.O. Hoffer Water Treatment Facility, which is located on the Cape Fear River, and the Glenville Lake Water Treatment Facility, which is located on Glenville Lake in the Little Cross Creek Watershed. PWC also operates a pump station on Big Cross Creek, which can pump up to one million gallons of water per day to the Glenville Lake Water Treatment Facility.

Okay, now you know a bit more about our tap [drinking] water sources. Please see this PWC Watershed Management Article for more. I have posted other pictures of Lake Glenville [dawn] and [late afternoon]. I also took pictures of the lake in 2014 when the spillway was under renovation.
