Out at the same time

Checking the cupboards over carefully, it appears that we have not only used up all of our December, we finally made it through the family-sized box of 2021 as well – don’t you love it when they both run out together? So to celebrate, we have our end-of-month/end-of-year abstract.


I really should let you figure this one out on your own, because you look like you’re read more

On this date 59

Boy, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? But I noticed that I haven’t posted anything for December 1st in the past three years, and decided to rectify that. This was a good choice, because I’ve shot quite a few photos on December 1st, though mostly in two specific years, so I have plenty to work with.

We’ll start with 2008.

November, git!

As we look out the back window and find November once again getting into the trash, we send it on its way with a shout and a well-aimed pine cone. Yes, it’s the end of the month, and time for our abstract. Would you like to hazard a guess as to what it will be?

Never mind, nobody likes guessing games. It’s this:


The original framing was wider than this, but as I saw the read more

It is an ex-October


Whoa, damn near missed this one! As it is, it’s posting, like, 21 hours later than normal for the end-of-month abstract – I simply got involved in other things and plumb forgot about it. Not that I had a lot of choices from this month anyway, nor did I go out yesterday in search of any like I’d been considering, and the few frames I shot today don’t really read more

Is that all you got, September?

I really shouldn’t ask that, to be honest – it’s been an aggravating month on this end at least. This is posting in the early hours of the last day, so there’s still plenty of time for September to rise to that challenge.

But hey, it’s the month-end abstract – that’s a bright spot, yeah? And what do we have for that, Johnny?


Why, it’s… read more

Just because, part 43

I’ve got a longer post, the last tattered remnants of the trip to, you know, the state and not the city, but that’ll take some writing, and I’ve had these images sitting in the folder for a little while now, so you get this quickie.


I went over to the pond, oh, eight days ago now, since the sunset looked a little promising. As usual, that promise was broken and read more

July to me?

Another long, eventful month to wave toodle-oo to, and so we have the month end abstracts. And all three were shot within the month, so, good on me? I guess that depends on how good the photos actually are.


From an outing early win the month with the Unforeseeable Mr Bugg (who it appears is not read more

Been a long month…

… so we bid June adieu, toodle-oo, and get lost ya bum with the month-end abstracts. Yes, that’s right, plural. Three, even. Two of which are remarkably similar though, so be appeased by that. Or whatever.


Our first comes from Jordan Lake, a bit south of Walkabout Studios here in North Carolina, during a sunrise outing. The sky was a little too clear for optimal colors, read more

May be not

Since today is May but tomorrow is not, that can only mean one thing: it’s time for the end of the month abstract! Did you have your alarm set to get up early just to see this? I bet you did…


Of course it would have to be from the beach trip, and in fact, we have two, just to let you decide which one you’re least indifferent about.


Stunning composition, textures, read more

April must skedaddle

Nobody skedaddles anymore, do they? It’s becoming a lost art. Maybe I’ll start a school…

But it’s the end of the month, and you know what that means. No, not fresh underwear day – it’s the end of the month abstract, begun through a trivial coincidence and continued through sheer lack of originality and good sense. Today we have…
