Fly Paper and Phone Photos

I’m busy, but taking a bit of time to relax. I’ve read a few blogs, but I’m still operating at a reduced blog-viewing capacity. To all those whose blogs I’ve missed . . . I hope you have other readers looking at your stuff. 

For the past three nights, I’ve indulged in a bit of sketching . . . I used to call it doodling, but this seems a bit more than drawing abstract but somehow regular (and geometric) patterns. 

I try to infuse a little humor into my efforts. I figure it might be just distracting enough to keep people from being overly-critical of my drawing skills. 

Actually, no one has commented on either of my previous drawings . . . and from that, I take it readers are just too in awe to conjure up worthy superlatives for my efforts. (Edited to Add: one person has, in fact, commented on the drawings and in a complimentary way, and the comments were appreciated.) 

That’s a long way of saying . . . here’s my latest:

I call that “The Wall” and here’s a framed version of it.

Yes, I’m still playing around with the frame option in Topaz Studio.

OK, I’m kind of tired and I need to hit the sack, so I’ll just present a gallery of a few more framed photos. These are all photos that were shot with the Samsung Note 8 and processed in Topaz Studio.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I 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 mean something to me.

Finally, if you interpret anything on this blog as me asking or wanting pity, sympathy, or complaining about my life, or asking for help and advice, know you’re likely missing my subtle mix of irony, sarcasm, and humor.

  1. Needs a bit of jam on that slice of bread. I suggest a dash of raspberry!


  2. HA! The Wall made me snort-laugh!!! Great drawing and great theme, Emilio!

    Very unique and cool photos! Is that colorful bird an owl or an eagle?!? The green bug is beautiful! A katydid?! I like the way you framed that one!

    HUGS and Happy Whee-kend to you and Melisa!!! :-)

      Thank you, diem3.

      That’s supposed to be an owl and it’s in the same parking lot as the big owl photo I had submitted for the Monochrome Madness. There are a few more, but they were blocked by a truck and I’m waiting for a chance to photograph them.

      That particular owl is painted half on one shipping container and half on another.

      That green bug is — as you guessed — a Katydid or Green Leaf Bug. I have a short video of it (6 seconds) but then it flew off.

      I liked all those photos and was pleased with how clear the bug photo is, but I especially like the colors of the cat clock and the way it turned out.

    That owl is very creatively done! And the colored pencil flowers are sweetly simple. Nice job with the frames!

      Thanks, Ann. Yes, the paintings of those owls (and other stuff) on that building are very good. Vibrant colors and striking designs). An example of street art that is well done.


  4. I suppose while you’re stuffing around playing with this stuff poor Melissa is slaving her insides out taking care of house and hearth and making Spam sandwiches for you to stuff
