Let’s kick back again

And so I finally get back to more of the beach trip, but part of the reason for the delay may soon become apparent, especially if you look at the page load times or sizes of some of the images. As I said, fewer pics this time around, largely because I was doing other […]

Per the ancient lore, part 14

This week, we hit the last of the stock folders, the so-called Sunrise/Sunset bin – which is one of the thinnest folders that I have (‘thin’ insofar as number of images within, because there is no measurable thickness to a bunch of magnetic squiggles on a hard disk.) The reason for this is, I […]

Early Friday morning color

Remember when I said, on last year’s trip to North Topsail, that I hardly did any insect photography at all? Of course you do – forgive me. This trip was about the same; I might have fewer than ten more insect images over what I got last year. This is one of them, taken […]

Odd memories, part 16

I’m trying to recall what kind of conversation we were having tonight that brought this subject to mind – it’s not like anyone would routinely discuss anecdotes of this nature, but then again, I’m involved, so…

This one occurred around the same time period of most of the ‘Per the ancient lore’ posts, like […]

Okay, but could be better

So first off, let me just assure you that we did get outdoors for National Get Outdoors Day (which was Saturday) – The Girlfriend and I took the kayaks out on Jordan Lake for a short excursion. “Short,” in part, because we’re still not conditioned to long kayak trips yet, but also because I […]

No excuses now

Hey! I’m betting you forgot that Saturday – that would be June 9th – is National Get Outdoors Day. And the walk from the house to the car doesn’t count; you’re being graded on this, so let’s see some real effort put into it. If you don’t have some chewed-up areas on your hands […]

Thank you, May I have another?

‘Tis the last gasp of May, and that means it’s abstract time! You’ve been bouncing up and down in your seat the entire month, haven’t you?

I am finally recognizing that making difficult decisions can induce a lot of stress, which is not good for your health and even less so for mine, so […]

It’s been a bit turtley lately

Back a couple of weeks ago, I featured a teaser image from a recent outing, one that I’m finally getting back to – but in the interim, we did that trip to the beach, which only added to the pattern that had been established. I don’t honestly think there’s anything more than coincidence at […]

Lucky I have something

You are well aware, naturally, that today is Relate Something That Happened Last Night That Has Nothing To Do With Alcohol Day (that modifier put in there to prevent things from getting really fucking boring, because who needs to hear yet another story about people with no self-control?) and, as fate would have it, […]

Podcast: But no Annette Funicello

It’s funny; while I was in the final stages of putting this all together, I allowed myself to be sidetracked with more subjects for future posts, and just had a rather interesting evening. But I’m getting ahead of how behind I am. So for now, we have a podcast of the most recent trip, […]
