Tell me what's a-happening.

Tell me what's a-happening."

“Bring me then the plant that points to those bright
Lucidites swirling up from the earth,
And life itself exhaling that central breath!
Bring me the sunflower crazed with the love of light.”

— Eugenio Montale

Day ?

— Oscar Wilde

Oh, yeah...

I forgot I had a picture-a-day blog. Clearly.

I recently purchased a remote-control, so the thrill of a new toy may be just the incentive I need.

Cross fingers; say a prayer; perhaps tomorrow I'll be back in the game.

Day 67

"They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn. ..."

— Jack Kerouac, On the Road

See all the love – love that's in me."

I've Lost Count of the Days

It's been a week since I've posted any photos. It's not in the spirit of the blog to post a bunch at once, mind you, but I have been taking shots pretty consistently. Here are several:

I love up close and interesting texture shots. This is of the bottom of a tree in a downtown parking lot.

Day 53 -- Help?

I thought it was another setting from when I took indoors, but clearly not. Is the graininess just an ISO issue, or is there something else I'm not doing that's keeping a bunch of noise in my shots?

Day 50

Self Portrait

More Signs of Spring

Days 40-49, or something like that

I've been very lax in taking every day. I hit a I-don't-want-to-have-to-do-anything snag, I think, and I'm trying to get back on track.

The following 10 photos were taken over the course of a couple of days. A couple are documentation of events or moments, like the one of G during an orchestra concert or the sudden reflection of the yard on the bumper of the car.

Catch The Buddha

Oh, the Calla Lilies Are in Bloom

Bumper Reflections

Peeking at the Violin Section

Razzle Tazzle

Pretty Senora

Spring Leaves

Stilted Trailers

Somerset & the Sunset

Came in Through the Office Window

Day 36

E treated me and J to a b'day lunch at her place of work. J enjoyed the notice that was displayed above the fire extinguisher, that there was, indeed, a fire extinguisher below.

Day 33

I spent the day photographing a church for an art competition. It's the most time I've spent in church in a long time.
