Project 313 – Post No. 216

This is one of the few times I caught a dynamic version of these birds (HERE). Usually, they are either eating or shitting or both and not overly exciting to look at.

That time, they provided me with a few great shots.

And now, the photo:

A somber look at a truck’s rear light and tailgate.

Where we currently live and in our previous state of residency (Colorado) hill are a common thing. I’ve learned to not get right up to the cars in front of me when on a hill because . . . 

At least Willy has an excuse. Modern drivers, not so much. 

We all have encountered instances where . . . This is what most people visualize when they tell you “it’s simple, really”.

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

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

    I like Willy’s car. And those shots of the Canada Geese were a real delight to this old bird lover.

      In days past, those cars were a lot more common than they are now (although they’re still a few around). In part, there are fewer of the real beaters because cars are actually lasting longer now and it’s a bit easier to keep them running and looking OK with just a little effort (which still seems more than most people are willing to put forth).

      And yes, those are some of my favorite shots of geese. There is one shot in particular that has me baffled. I mention that in the post.

      Namely, the fact that it looks like the geese “jump” before spreading their wings to fly off. Or, at least, it so appears.


      • paolsoren says:

        Yes, I saw that. The Australian ‘Cape Barren Goose’ takes of and is airborne just as quickly which is different from the Black Swan which takes off from the water and has a long run by paddling on the water flat out like a lumbering Jumbo Jet.


  2. Your photos of the Canadian Geese are so spectacular, Emilio! I especially love the ones of them in flight! I saw my first Canadian Geese in Denver many years ago. I think the CG are beautiful…and kinda’ the majestic-ones of the geese family. I like their coloring, their wingspan, their “talking”, but I didn’t like all the poop they left everywhere! ;-)
    Oh, and your drawing of The Girl is wonderful and sweet! :-)
    Okay…just thinkin’ out loud…the Twente geese are cool looking, too. As are the Magellan geese. Hmm…Maybe I just like all geese. Most of the geese I’ve met personally had attitude and were aggressive. They were better than having a big growly watch-dog!

    PHOTO: Interesting and cool perspective. What is the gold chainy locky S-hooky-thingee for? Just a lock of some kind?
    CARTOON: HA! I could pick Willy’s car out of a car line-up! ;-) :-D
    DOODLE: HAHAHAHA! Your doodle and it’s title made me snort-laugh! :-D So true!
    HUGS!!! :-)

      As much as I harp about their droppings (specifically, on golf courses — try reading a green and get a line to the hole around little mounds of goose drek and you’ll know what I mean), I do like the birds. But then, I like all sorts of birds.

      The chain thing is a safety in case the latch to the tailgate fails (that’s the back of a pickup truck).

      The bumper sticker would give it away . . . and I’d love to meet Willy and Ethel. More so than any celebrity anyone could name.

      It’s funny because it’s true. When someone knows something, it seems simple to them. Someone coming in cold just doesn’t see it all that simple.

      Thanks, Carolyn. The weekend is almost here; hope you’re ready for it.

    The “painting” photo of the geese taking off has been snipped and placed in my Artsy Photo folder for future inspiration . . . I think if would look great as a vignette on a t-shirt!

    And your doodle is anything but “uninteresting and bland”. A wonderful splash of color on this snowy day.
