Again, with the phone photos

Salsify SnapSeeded

Salsify SnapSeeded

So, just a few things to remind people I am, in fact, alive.  Alive, but fighting the unfolding of the Universe for every scrap of free time I can get.  Let me tell you, the Universe is winning.  

However, I do take small pleasures where I can.  The above was snapped during one of our walks.  It’s the seed ball of a Salsify plant, photographed with my phone, and processed through SnapSeed.

I also take pleasure in the chance encounters . . . 

. . . such as seeing a house driving down the road.

It too got the same treatment as the Salsify seed ball, plus it was Pixlr-o-maticated . . .

Finally, yesterday evening I spent some time among the hummingbirds on my deck, and together we watched a sky that, while not amazing, certainly entertained.  By the way, you can click on these to view the full size photos.  These are all panoramas from the phone.

Those are in the span of about 10 minutes.  As I said, the sky might not have looked like much, but I saw it like this . . .

Well, that’s it . . . my lunch is over, and I must cease all enjoyment in life, and get back to work.

However, I do hope I brought at least a tad of enjoyment in your life.  Thanks for visiting.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me some recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline nominations whereby one blogger bestows an award onto another blogger, or group of bloggers.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I would much prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would actually mean something to me.

Should you still nominate me, I will strongly suspect you pulled my name at random, and that you are not, in fact, a reader of my blog.  If you wish to know more, please read below.

Note: to those who may click on “like”, or rate the post; if you do not personally hear from me, know that I am sincerely appreciative, and I thank you for noticing what I do.

    You take full advantage of opportunities, indeed.
    Hmmm. If I went home and told my wife I saw a house doing over the limit … :)

    I’m not allowed to photograph and drive at the same time. But I like it when others do.
