Cranes 87-89 Cranes 90-92 Cranes 93-95 I’ve spent a few days away from Internet access, and I’m just now making up my crane pictures. I could have figured something out about posting the pictures without missing a day if never missing a day had been all that important. I’ve decided to let myself skip and […]

Ch-ch-ch-choices

Cranes 84-85 of 1000 for 2016. I folded these cranes at an Asian restaurant while waiting for my food to arrive. I had the choice to go to dinner or complete my origami/photo project for the day, so I decided to do both, of course. I am a person who enjoys a challenge, and one […]

All hail the power of peer pressure

Lucy Peanut is tuckered out, and I can’t say I blame her. She burrowed into a blanket on the couch to take a nap this evening, and I tried to get her up to play so that I could take a more active picture of her, but she just kept going right back to her […]

In which habit is who you are

Jack Cat says “oh no you didn’t” to Lucy Peanut. That’s his usual line for her. If you’ve been paying attention, you might have noticed that I’ve fallen behind on Lucy Peanut pictures while I’ve posted more Alice and paper crane pictures lately. I decided to make up for that today. Here are a few […]

No matter where you go, there you are

Did Confucius really say this? No matter where you go, there you are. The Internet says that he did, so it must be true. The concept is certainly true regardless of whether the attribution is legit. I sure seem to drag myself around wherever I go. My latest thing has been an obsession with the […]

In which we all suffer for the art

Today’s dog photo challenge was “all dressed up,” and Lucy Peanut had to endure grave insult because of it. She was not impressed with her new outfit. I had been saving this sweater for excessively cold weather, but after having to model it today, Lucy Peanut informs me that the weather will never be cold […]

A walk in the park

Lucy Peanut and I went to the park today, and she heard another dog bark (one that was inside a fence and just saying hello) and made herself bigger by hopping up on the nearest available bench. Alice, the little mannequin, was already there, and I intended to photograph her. I had to move Alice […]

Grant me the confidence

I’ve often been amused by the quote that makes its way around social media from time to time: “Lord grant me the confidence of a mediocre white man.” Because yes. I’ve met those guys. And no. Not all white guys are like that, mediocre or otherwise, but it is a joke, so it’s okay to […]

Just Start Somewhere

Cranes 25-27 of 1000 for 2016. The coffee mug pictured is by Wyatt Waters, a Mississippi artist. The building depicted is a real building in Brookhaven, MS, and yes, it does have a giant coffee pot on top. That’s what I love about the South. So it’s Day 8 now, and I’m still making cranes. […]

If at first you don’t succeed, try 110 more times.

Today’s dog challenge was “too much is not enough.” I thought about photographing Lucy Peanut with her toys because she does have way too many. Then I got the idea of photographing her with my toys. I have a set of sock monkeys that I keep in a plastic container safely out of LP’s reach. […]
