Per the ancient lore, part 20

Whoopsie! Here it is, mid-afternoon on Friday, and I usually have the Ancient Lore posts appear at like 6 AM. Somehow, I was not hounded with thousands of e-mails from eager readers who wanted their weekly photo post with their morning coffee. I wonder if the e-mail server is down?

But better late […]

Per the ancient lore, part 17

This week we’re back in the Beach folder, but what we’re doing here and how we might escape, no one can tell. What can be told is where this was taken, because like damn near the rest of the Ancient Lore pics so far, it was taken at my wading area on the Indian […]

Per the ancient lore, part 10

After a brief jaunt into the future with last week’s post, we return to the earliest days of digital photos (for me, anyway) and of course Florida. The subject here is the lovely textures of a Caribbean sycamore tree, rudely blocked by an impertinent anole. Okay, I lie, I have no idea what kind […]

Per the ancient lore, part 3

Previously we had entries from my Aquatic and Arthropod (1) folders, and now we have Beach. Even though this appears quite early in that folder, it still falls over a thousand images into my use of that borrowed camera, taken while my brother was visiting me in Florida. Walking on the beach alongside Sebastian […]

Sunday slide 40

I had planned, only a short while ago, to use an entirely different slide up here this morning, but the slide scanning program started getting balky and I haven’t yet determined how to fix it. My suspicion is that this is caused by a Windows 10 automatic update, which if true would be seriously […]

Sunday slide 38

I think the reeds give a pretty good indication of scale, but just in case, the first thing I’ll point out is that you’re looking at the head of an American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis,) and a small one at that – much less than a half-meter in length, probably closer to 35cm. Most of […]

Sunday slide 32

We have returned to the Brevard Zoo in Brevard County, Florida, only to come face-to-face with a southern cassowary (Casuarius casuarius) – not the healthiest thing to do, given the aggressiveness and wicked capabilities of this species. Which almost goes without saying, since this is a native of Australia. It’s kind of an internet […]

Sunday slide 22

For this week’s slide, we go back to one of the first photos I took when I’d moved to Florida in 2002, a curious thing that I saw as I pulled into the apartment complex one evening. This Cuban treefrog (Osteopilus septentrionalis) had chosen to perch on one of the series of light globes […]

Sunday slide 2… and 1

Yeah, so, I missed out on starting this new weekly post for the year by a week. Partially because the film scanner wouldn’t play nice with Windows 10 (imagine that,) partially because I’ve been busier than intended with countless projects these past couple of weeks, but mostly because it didn’t occur to me to […]
