Hiatus Post No. 25 – Ship Decor

I am taking April off from Disperser Tracks, from reading blogs, from Facebook, from Twitter, and from the Internet in general. I plan to return (virtually) live on May 1st. 

Meanwhile, I scheduled a few posts (like this one) to go live during April . . . like a blog heartbeat of sorts.

I should mention, I am not monitoring comments. I will eventually read them in May, but if anyone has a question, the best bet is to send me an e-mail.

While on our 2014 cruise I snapped photos of stuff I found interesting. Cruise ships have murals as part of the décor. 

I also notice people have been doing challenges involving different processing for the same photo. Heck, I can do that . . . or so I think.

Mural #1:

We have not done so for some time now, but we used to visit antique stores pretty regularly. One of the things often seen are models of machines.

Small things, they are, sometimes no more than mere inches, but depicting literally eras of our history. The contribution of the machines they represent often cannot be measured or quantified except to say they helped change the world. 

Not motorcycles, of course; they are just something middle aged jerks can use to annoy other folks. 

Sometimes the machines are mere mechanisms requiring human power to operate.

Sometimes only parts of a machine are on display . . .  but it still evokes memories, and still can bring a smile to one’s face.

20140111113635_DIGI

Sometimes the whole machine is there, and it contains the actual memories for us.

R7 is one of my favorite songs, and it goes well with this next machine of sorts . . . one that humans have been slaves to for far too long.

20140111132743_DIGI

Sometimes the machines have no moving parts . . . they are mere representations of grander things.

Finally, some machines remind us just how far we have come . . .

Posts that receive a lot of attention usually involve animals, birds, flowers, or bugs. 

The Big Dump 2012 Bug Edition was one such post.

Here are additional interesting cloud formations I’ve captured here in Colorado.

These are from a morning in June 2012.

We have not done so for some time now, but we used to visit antique stores pretty regularly. This is not really about antiques, but rather stuff we saw while shopping for antiques. Specifically, in Cañon City, Colorado.

Looking back at a time long past, the mural represents the roots of the city . . . much like now, people milling about without doing much.

This is a more modern take on life . . .

Not sure what the large serpent is doing in the scene . . .

No, it FSM damn doesn’t; it’s your child, you take care of it and make sure it does not grow up to be a nuisance, especially to me. 

An intermediate mural was inside Lola’s . . .

We don’t normally go in these places, but it was closed, and we struck up a conversation with the owner who then invited us in to see this:

I don’t recall the story . . . but I’m pretty sure those two were not best buds. Then again, I ain’t no follower of either.
