Another example of yarnbombing. For reference, that book is about a yard wide.


So, my last image was so grainy...because it was shot without enough light, at way to high an ISO. This is somewhere around ISO 400, I think.

New toy, and a freak.

Photo of a mutated rose taken with my new Holga lens for my DSLR.

Someone asked what my last picture would look like in Sepia. The answer? washed out shit. In my opinion, MOST images photographed for color, look better _IN_ color. There are different things you look for in black and white, cyanotype, or sepia. It does look...ok. In a high contrast black and white, but I prefer it as it is. So there.

Also. Guys. What's with this posting links to your articles in other peoples blogs shit? We see your blogs. If we feel like it, we'll check them out.  I follow your blogs, and I SEE those posts anyway.

Post your articles on my blog...your comments get deleted. You loose any sort of view-ability of your blog from that comment, because that shit is fucking rude. People want to see what your blog is about? They click on your name, and then on your blog/blogs. It's quick, and it should be easy, if you do your shit right.

that is about an inch of hail. I didn't get a better image as it went from hail to freezing cold rain in a few seconds and I love my camera to much to subject it to that.

shaping, bending, re-forming light. Held just right, it can show things behind you, without a mirror.

At 8:08 tomorrow morning, in just under seven hours, a Tsunami is going to hit. Chances are pretty good I'm to high for it to matter, inside a bay.

Still. i don't think I'm gona sleep for crap tonight.

Withered white

What once was a beautiful white flower, now, a wizened husk. The same shape, but a different entity. Still, in it's own way, beautiful.

Golden poppy.

A bit of California pride, I guess. Love this flower.

Also. Have i really been mis-spelling graffiti the entire time? Awkward.

New followers?

So, two things. First, Devon...Most of the graphiti I find is in very out of the way places, or tucked into corners. The John Lennon bit for example is literally by the train tracks, on the back of a factory, in an industrial part of town.

Secondly...I've gotten a few new followers, who don't have their blogs listed in their profiles. As such, I have no idea what your blogs are to check you out. So tell me, please. Same goes for anyone who's following me that I missed, somehow. let me know. It's not intentional.

Because you never know when I will actually have more photos on any given subject.

This one is rainbow colored. It's actually still there, but a little warn...I should go take a picture of the change over the past month or so.

Graphiti, Little old lady edition.

So, there's this thing all over my area called "yarn bombing". Apparently, it's like graphiti. Only you have that nasty polyester yarn everywhere.

So, this Disqus thing.

Why are there blogger bloggs that have outside comment managing software? why do people do this? what's the benefit?

No real post processing, beyond proper white balance.

As for the bit with the chunk of stump...I was taking a stump down to little chips with an axe. That chunk sticking in the fence flew there and stuck from that process.
