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 […]

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. […]

It was a dark and dreary day

Cranes 22-24 of 1000 for 2016. It was a dark and dreary day, but the friends were together, and a good time was had by all.

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. […]
