Good Sunday morning!
It is the last weekend of July and I am sitting here chilled! The temps have dropped from somewhere around 100*F to the 60s. That wouldn’t be bad, perfect temps really, I like it around 70, but there is a fierce southwest wind blowing up a storm in this low pressure system. The wind feels like it’s blowing from the Arctic rather than the south. It’s lovely to look at but I did not come prepared to sit outside here.
Today I have a photoblog for you. Yes, it has been a long time. I haven’t been taking very many pictures, I simply have been too busy. Summer school is done and I gave myself a break and decided that CampNaNo is done too. I am working on the Birdie/Rolf story I started in NaNo 2011. I hit the 50k with it but never finished the story. So I am going to do that and I think it will be the second NaNo book to be published under my name. I will tell you all about it in the coming week. The first NaNo book to be published is coming soon!
I do have a collection of pictures to share though; the small collection I had and yesterday I took my camera out for a little walk around our friend’s house. I took a bunch of nature shots and some mechanical ones. Most of them came out so well that all I’ve had to do is a little auto-levels or contrast. There has been some cropping here and there to cut out the superfluous imagery and point you at what I really wanted you to see. Overall though, I’m really pleased with the way they came out.
There were so many that I had to decide what to share and what not to share rather harshly. I think I still have too many. *laughs* Shall we begin?
First, the picture that inspired the title. It is a closed bud of a mini black eyed susan. It’s been cropped and auto-contrasted but otherwise is untouched. After that I am simply going to post the pictures and talk about them beneath the photo. Enjoy!
And now for the last one, the weirdest of all the pictures, simply for the fact of what it is.
That’s it for me folks! Time to wake The Boyfriend so I can go to the flea market and pick up some local fruits and veggies. Have a great day and a lovely week.
Aha! The bike is a 1981 Honda CX500 Custom.
