So you might be saying to yourself, “Boy, that’s a weird looking one. What was he thinking putting that up?”
I’ll make a story out of it. Why not? It was a sort of an oddball day.
As I’ve noted, we’re in the silly season and I couldn’t bear to read about Joe Burden telling us about how he rassled with Vlad the Impaler and forced him to raise the price of oil to a thousand dollars a barrel to save the world from green house gasification.
So I spent today outside digging some weeds and planting some seeds and playing around with the camera. In fact I spent so much time that I lost track and actually filled up the 64 Gbyte memory card I had in the camera. Now it wasn’t empty when I started, far from it, but I got so wrapped up taking photos of bugs and flowers and mosses and mushrooms that I definitely took way too many shots. And that’s why someday I will have to do a massive purge of bad and mediocre images. I have something like a million files and I could easily get rid of 75% of them if I had the heart to face that task.
Believe it or not I have images many times worse than the ones I put up on the photo of the day! So I had to stop and empty out the files onto the desktop. But then I got distracted. I started looking through the images and I started liking some of them. And then I got playing around with them. I’d crop them mercilessly to see some tiny corner or center that had some geometric or pattern thing going on. And before I knew it the day had disappeared. But it was fun. So I figured I’d share the reverse order of what I was doing today.
So as you can see even weeding has its moments.
