Caleigh Still Looking
February 16, 2011
Well, I finally gave up and went to the doctor. The doctor gave me a prescription with the words, “Take these twice a day for ten days and if they don’t work. Come back.” I sure hope they work. I will let you know in about 10 days. This is getting really old.
I have also received a few emails wanting to know why I have not posted many photos lately. You might think it is because I have been fighting the flu bug but I have a better excuse. My main camera, my Canon EOS-1 Ds Mark III has stopped working; I guess I just wore it out taking photos of Molly, McGee and the owlets. I took it in for repair and they tell me the issue is the shutter mechanism has failed and has to be replaced. Like I said, I think I just wore it out. I should have it back in a couple of weeks.
While I am waiting for my Mark III to be repaired I will be taking photos with a new backup camera that Donna bought me for my birthday. It is a Canon 7D. The photo of Caleigh was taken with my new camera. Wow, I am impressed and I think I am really going to like my new camera for more everyday use. It is smaller and lighter.
We are still getting reports that people are just getting their copy of Molly and McGee, The World Most Famous Barn Owls. Like I said when they were mailed, it could take up to three weeks because they were shipped media rate. Eric has since changed the shipping to first class mail: Yes, it costs more but you get your book in just a few days instead of three weeks. You can still order copies of Molly and McGee, The World Most Famous Barn Owls, photography by Carlos Royal.
And if you loved Molly and McGee, The World’s Most Famous Barn Owls, then according to Eric you will love Molly and McGee, The Second Clutch even more. Eric is still taking pre-orders for the book which is expected to ship in April/May. Order yours now. Molly and McGee, The Second Clutch. If you order now you will also get 4 high resolution, 8.5’ by 11” photos you can down load instantly.
Austin’s DVD Molly’s Story, a documentary is still available at Austin4Media.com as Austin continues to chase his goal of 4,000 sold. Austin is also in the process of opening an online store for young teenagers. He is just waiting on approval from PayPal to turn on the site. Stay tuned.
We have not seen McGee since returning from the desert. It has been too cold to sit out and watch for McGee but I am sure he is still around because Molly is still in the box… hopefully sitting on eggs. We plan to announce that you will be able to buy those latest Large Frame Prints of McGee by this weekend since so many of you have asked for them. It seems Chris also has the bug, but he told me today that his goal is to have them on CafePress by this weekend unless he has a relapse. Visit CafePress today and save $3.00 on purchase of $30.00 or more.
All the best,
Carlos, Donna and Austin
