In case anyone's wondering why I haven't posted many vacation photos, my preferred upload tool (Hello/BloggerBot) is hosed, and I really don't like Blogger's Upload Image tool, because it makes resized images look like total crap.

I recommend clicking on the pictures for full-size versions that don't look like total crap.

Fern shadow, fern shadow...
