So what did 2017 hold?

Of course, with the replacement of a small stack of bound pages with kitten pictures on our walls and the practice of crossing out the incorrect date on our checks (neither of which actually occurs anymore,) it is time to examine the previous twelve months and try to figure out what went wrong, just […]

Podcast: But anyway…

And so, things finally come to a culmination, or at least most things. I’ve been deeply involved in several projects, some of them offshoots of others, some of them needlessly, but here we are. I’ll let myself explain it orally. Or aurally. One of those is correct.

End of Sunday slide month… something

And so we come to Sunday slide 53, which we could only accomplish because Sunday was the first day of the year and, accordingly, the last too. But that meant we’d also have to do an end-of-the-month abstract, and I thought about this as I scanned this slide a few months back. Was there […]

Sunday slides 52

In 2006 I had just returned to the state again, after spending time in Florida, Georgia, and even briefly in Texas, and near the little duplex townhome in the woods that I was renting, I came across a marvelous landscape of fungi and lichens, all only millimeters in height. In fact, this entire frame […]

Sunday slide 51

So some years back, Jim Kramer (the Official Other Blog Image Contributor) drove us out to a small island in the middle of the Haw River outside of Burlington. At one point well in the past, the island had been occupied, with the remains of a house thereon, and at the time of this […]

Sunday slide 50

Many years back I sometimes hired myself out for various photographic jobs, and one of them was for the museum. They had an ancient parchment map delineating the borders during an unknown period in European history, and wanted some detailed photos of it so they could make measurements without chancing damage to the fragile […]

Sunday slide 49

So to begin with, this is another where I can’t quite remember where it was taken, but since there are no big hills in the area and I hadn’t been to the mountains when this was shot back in 1998, I have reasonable certainty that it was taken overlooking a lake. I don’t think […]

Sometimes I simply can’t

I’ve been trying all day, really I have, but it’s just not happening, so I have to apologize to you. Today, November 30th, is Annual Make Up A Bogus Holiday Day, but I’ll be damned if I can think of anything…

What? Last day of November?

That means it must be time for my warped idea of what an abstract image is.

The autumn colors largely escaped me this year – you will likely see just a few images in another post at some point – but I snagged a quick pic in high contrast that I decided to play […]

Sunday slide 48

I’m fairly certain the dragonfly is an eastern pondhawk (Erythemis simplicicollis.) But that’s not the only species visible in the shot. Take as much time as you need to find the other, before you check out Sunday slide 13, which should visually clue you in. Yes, they were taken at the same time. I […]
