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 […]

Catching up with the cranes

Crane 59 of 1000 for 2016. I’ve been out of town for the long weekend. I took a bunch of pictures, but I don’t have time to sort through them now. I just wanted to take a jiffy to catch up on my cranes. 57-58 55-56 52-54 The top image and the bottom image show […]

Out of office

This is just to say that today’s blog post is still in the camera.   I’m away from my computer, so I haven’t posted any pictures today, though I have taken many. I’m testing out my WordPress app right now to post this from my phone.  It was a sunny day spend with friends. I […]

In Love and War and Laundry

Alice believes she should always look her best no matter what she is doing. My photo prompt today was “all dressed up and nowhere to go.” This is what Alice decided to do to help me get the shot. I haven’t taken the dog photo yet today, though we can’t blame Lucy Peanut. The dog […]

Shooting at the moon

I’m not going to post a zillion pictures today. I’m tired, and I only took half a zillion pictures. I think I’ll just leave you with this one. Professional photographers, if they are nice people, share their recipes for how to get certain shots. I’ve just been reading some of those recipes. Every shot requires […]

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 […]

Don’t be sad, sad kitty

Stella Calico was stuck inside today, watching Jack Cat and Lucy Peanut play outside. Stella is a shy and skittish kitty and does not go outside, but sometimes she sits in the window looking sad to be left home alone. To which Lucy Peanut replies… I don’t have anything to add to that. Lucy P […]

It only takes one

I chose a random shot for my photo of the day because capturing these random moments is what a photo project is all about. My cranes for the day were busy reading a literature anthology to prepare for class. My photo prompt for the day was “hidden treasure.” Alice hid some treasure from herself out […]

Just like that bluebird

Cranes 34-36 of 1000 for 2016. “This way or no way You know, I’ll be free Just like that bluebird Now ain’t that just like me.” Rest in Peace, David Bowie.

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 […]
