• I think this is right. Using DSC I was able to get from gold to platinum in 6 months July-Jan19 figuring that would likely be my only chance of getting to Platinum, effectively for 18 months as my year starts in July.

  • I'd be more worried that, despite a Southern California desert roadtrip, all the pix are boring & grimy downtown LA (other than the Gehry Disney Hall?). What, no actual Joshua Tree desert shots? Obviously they left the photog in LA, lost opportunity.
