Monday color 6

This image was taken almost exactly a year ago (March 11 to be precise,) as some early bulbs were bursting forth. A week later, another freezing rain storm had redecorated them, and everything else.

I should have made these ‘Wednesday color’ posts – then this one and the first could have been lined up […]

A few more

These are just a few more images that I obtained in the past week, that I didn’t try to jam into the previous post. Instead, I’m jamming them in here!

I have photographed these peculiar blossom pods umpteen times in this state, and never figured out what they were. Finally, for this post, I […]

It’s been… a week

Not a long week, not a hard week, not even a weird week – just a week. All over the place, and hard to categorize.

The snow from last week was still present when Monday rolled around, bright, sunny, and topping 15°c (60°f,) and a student wanted to take advantage of this, so we […]

Monday color 5

These hibiscus flowers were photographed during the trip to Sylvan Heights Bird Park that I talk about here, and were part of the selection of images that I’d prepared for that post – which probably should’ve taken place in August, but didn’t. When the end of the year was rolling around, I pulled this […]

Can’t be smug

The snowstorms that have hit the northeast have completely passed us by here in NC… or had, anyway. Tuesday morning it came in with a vengeance – thick clumps of snowflakes packed together like schoolgirls on the way to the ladies room, but considerably quieter. I ventured out for photos, but had to keep […]

On the negative side 1

I actually took photos today! But I may get some more tonight, and want to do a longer post, so for now, we go retro.

As I’ve been skimming through my images, I have a couple of folders dedicated to scans of slides and negatives from long ago. This one is not quite the […]

Monday color 4

For this week’s Monday color, we hearken back (not to be confused with harkening back) to 1991 I believe, during a training seminar for animal cruelty investigation being held in Nashville, Tennessee. I had some free time in the evening and was wandering around the downtown area when the sky was suffused with some […]

Freezing my balls

As New Horizons draws closer to Pluto, it’s starting to send back some really detailed images of the distant dwarf planet, including this lovely shot of dawn over its frozen surface.

Okay, that’s an outright lie. You’re looking at something that I’ve wanted to try since I saw it online last winter, and we’ve […]

Monday color 3

I have a lot of purple in the ‘color’ folder, so I’m trying to space them out adequately, but I suppose they’ll be spaced out with other photos as we go anyway.

(“But Al,” you say, or at least there’s a greater probability of such if you’re female, “that’s not purple, that’s mauve/amethyst/heliotrope/whateverthefuck.” Sure, […]

Under the wire

So, in a post on August 10 of last year, and again on August 13, I mentioned a trip that we’d taken that I was going to feature “shortly.” Given that there is no firm definition of this word, I maintain that I still made this deadline.

Also, I had waited for both The […]
