Most of this storm is behind us now.
It's not unreal enough to be surreal, just real enough to be a photoshop disaster when I replaced the window with another — the drops are dinosaur ginormous and light is coming from the wrong direction and masking my hair is just wrong but it's done and I'm done with it.

Whatever it was that went thru the wash, at least it's the wrong color to be another cheque. And it matches our violas. Because mistakes should always be coordinated with one's garden doncha know?
Funny how for the last few months the heat to my extremities is improved. My hands are often warm and pink instead of grey as the dead.

a variant of guerilla knitting on trees and lampposts was left by someone in the park.
kids going by all wanted to run up to the web. one little sister scolded little brother not to touch. he can look but not touch. there might be spiders.
Spider, by Barry Dempster. I like his gentle self-mocking tone, his imaginative twists.

In the 365-doldrums. One pic at a time back out. Was going to do a indoor staged one but the sun and warm is too nice to miss.
This one run thru cross-processing and 60s-effect of Flickr effects. Like how the stiffness and stillness of me and the antiquing is at odds with the cycling and movement in the background.
Ooh, and sometime today someone tiptoed in as the 2500th page view of this blog.

A quick-as-possible photo while a couple walking their across the street realize they have nowhere they need to go to so stop, stare, point, and settle in for watching me go back and forth from shutter release to wall.
Take 2, sooc:
71 days, just over 2 months to go. August 22nd.

The head is worse than yesterday. Woo, floor, lovely to see you again. How have you been? The head rushes have been, shall we say, entertaining, for a few days now.
It doesn't help that my cooking binge has heated the house up to 28 degrees. And 3 meals of basically sugar may not have been a hot idea either.
