East Side City Lights

This is a very old photo (an early attempt with my first digital camera). It’s a study in mistakes. Technically, it’s just… awful. Still, I kinda like it for some reason. Maybe it’s the somewhat eerie colors illuminating those wisps of smoke… maybe it just reminds me of how excited I was to be taking photos… or maybe I’ve just bounced off my head one too many times. Either way, have a great weekend, everyone!

A different look at a park I shared last November (you’ve probably guessed I’ve had a chance to catch-up on a few ‘mysteries’ lately). Have a great weekend everyone!

This wasn’t orange. At all. But it is now. So… that happened… I guess.

Also, I finally finished assembling the support for my next project (fingers crossed that painting will be done / posted around the end of the month). Have a great weekend, everyone!

Forrest Gump: “One day, it started raining… and it didn’t quit for four months!  We’ve been through every kind of rain there is: little bit of stinging rain… and big ‘ol fat rain… rain that flew in sideways… and sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath.”

– Tom Hanks – Forrest Gump

Luther Tower

One of my favorite phone-camera shots yet… I was almost happy my DSLR battery died. Still, keep those batteries fully charged, people (and by people I mean… you know… me).

Scout Master Ward (of Mr. Bishop’s bruises): “What happened to him?”

Becky: “I’m not sure. I think he went searching in the dark.”

Mr. Bishop: “She stole the batteries out of my flashlight.”

More trees. More fog. More… other things… on Thursday.

I’m afraid I will fall way behind with my comments today (depending on how Thanksgiving times-out), but I hope everyone has a good one… and a wonderful weekend as well!
