Let’s do it again

Today, October 6th, is International Time Warp Day, and to celebrate, I’m going to use the oft-ignored option in WordPress to publish this post at a random date, either ahead of or behind when I’m actually typing it. I couldn’t ever find a use for the function before, but I realized it was handy […]

Sunday slide 47

We go back to 1999, or maybe even slightly farther, for this one, an old staple of my abstract images. This is mostly because all of the slides I just scanned for potential use this week didn’t really pass muster, and I’m too tired to scare up some other choices.

Falls Lake, as I […]

Woooo, I’m a ghost!

What that title means is that I’m here, but you’d never be able to tell, at least not from my posting or indeed from the number of photos that I’ve shot recently. There’s been too much going on, yet not anything worth mentioning here (and you know that’s not exactly a high bar.)

I […]

Sunday slide 46

Yeah, I kind of slipped in a twofer again. Sue me.

Same location and date as the previous post, only minutes apart. At a small clearing along the boardwalk in the Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, a juvenile yellow-crowned night heron (Nyctanassa violacea) was among the dozens of birds enthusiastically fishing among the water plants. […]

Somewhere out there…

… someone has almost the exact same image.

I found this one while picking this week’s Sunday Slide, and decided to mention it just to flesh out another post, so here’s the story. While shooting in the Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary near Naples, Florida, I espied this yellow-crowned night heron (Nyctanassa violacea) dozing in […]

A visit with the warbirds, part 2

I told you I’d be back – I just didn’t say how freaking long it would take. Someday I will do a post about projects that took up way too much time, but that would be taking time away from the thing I’ve been trying to get to, which is this, so it’ll wait […]

Sunday slide 45: you big silly

So, I made a list of posts that began with the word, “So,” and it’s way too long. So I’m trying to stop doing that.

Just to let you know, this is the first time I attempted using the slide scanner after the failure, oh, this many weeks ago – I’ve just been using […]

A visit with the warbirds, part 1

Okay, I’m finally getting to this!

Several days back, the Wings of Freedom tour from the Collings Foundation made its visit to nearby Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU,) and the Immaculate Mr Bugg and I paid a visit. The Collings Foundation is a non-profit organization that restores and maintains vintage military aircraft, and there were […]

October blows past

I pretty much knew when I took this that it would be the end of the month abstract; what I didn’t know was that I wouldn’t have the time to post all of the rest of the images ahead of it. There is at least one post coming up on the warbirds, possibly two, […]

Sunday slide 44

Today’s slide comes from central New York back in… well, there’s no date stamp on the slide mount, but I want to say 2006 (because I like saying 2006. It just rolls off the tongue; try it. “Two thousand and six.” Doesn’t that just sound smooth? Stop looking at me like that.) Anyway, I […]
