Project 313 – Post No. 269

So, today, something for Air Force fans . . . HERE‘s my first foray in shooting fast-moving planes. 

The interesting thing about that particular series of photos is that they were shot hand-held with the Nikon 80-400mm lens . . . a pretty slow lens both in terms of aperture and in the ability to lock focus. 

But, boy, did it perform well on that day. Still some of my favorite airplane shots. 

And now, the photo:

That flower looks — to me — vaguely carnivorous. Pretty . . . but not to be trusted. 

It hasn’t occurred to me prior to last week, but now clicking on the cartoon will link you to the website with all of Martin’s archives. If you want to die laughing, give it a go. 

This cartoon has very profound implications for modern times . . .

Specifically, all them surveys who would like to rate the experience with a given business as ranging from “crap” to “extraordinary”. Those ranking irk me as much as being asked if I was “completely” satisfied. 

Note to businesses: I’m probably never going to be completely satisfied with what you provide. At best, I won’t be pissed off. Put that on your survey.

Anyway, today I also offer you the . . . Muddy Skull Carnevale.

. . . wish my teet were that white . . .

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.

    Carnivorous looking . . . or not . . . I like that floral design, plus the shape/design of the teacup/saucer is very elegant.


  2. Your Thunderbirds photos are amazing! Great job in shooting them! They do look fast and high and like a flock of birds!
    PHOTO: Sweet and delicate and beautiful! That’s what I saw. Then I read your comment and, darn, now it DOES remind me of a cousin to the Venus Flytrap!
    CARTOON: HA! I guess in the diner business presentation is important.
    DOODLE: He looks handsome…and chocolate-y to me! Normally, I’d think of mud before chocolate…but, I guess I’m hungry right now.
    HUGS!!! :-)

      Thank you, Carolyn. As with almost all my shots, I was, on that day, lucky.

      Thanks also for your other commitments. And, yes . . . you can tolerate bad food easier if the presentation is nice.
