The last (for now) reminder to vote

Good news for them getting tired of these reminders — the nineteen who voted; this is the last reminder before the January 1 deadline for castig your vote for the best Christmas Short Story Challenge submissions for them who’ve yet to vote. I’m calling on the 1,573 non-voting followers of this blog to step up.

Meanwhile a few photos, including some from our January 2019 Panama crossing cruise.

The next photo is from when the bridge was in front of us.

I might need to spend more time with Luminar 4, but probably not until the next release when — hopefully — they‘ll have fixed whatever is causing it to be super-slow.

Aurora is still behaving reasonably well.

Just for kicks, a few photos from Navarre, Florida (c. 2014).

And, let me finish with more from the cruise . . .

A bit exposed to the elements, but isolated enough to make it attractive.

Next, these condos(?) are at the other end of the spectrum. Not all the way there, but some.

And here’s a hotel treated to a bit of a retro look.

Not sure if anyone else has noticed a correlation, but beaches are mostly found at the edges of oceans. Beach-like terrain is also found at the bottom of oceans, but they go by different names: seafloor, bottom, Andreas, and so on.

Well, I’m done with this reminder.

Redundant, but here’s the gallery of the above photos for them who prefer this format:

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

    Yeah! I got some new favorite photos! Let’s see . . . first is the one of the sand dunes . . . love it! Second is the Leafy Seadragon. Third is the pigeon in flight at the beach. And fourth is that lovely hut on the rocky shore! Awesome, bro! Thank you for providing me with hours of pleasure and inspiration for my art!


  2. ‘Tis a cold Jan 1! These photos make it feel warmer and smilier! Thanks for sharing them!
    Love your bridge shots!
    We used to live where we had to travel on bridges daily to work and home. I don’t miss the driving on the bridges every day, but I do miss them and the view from them.

      Thank you, that’s very kind of you to say.

      . . . I was impressed by how fast you read so many of my posts; all under a minute.

      I stopped by your blog. Interesting material, although my French is (a lot) rusty. Mostly, I know a few exclamations I picked up in movies. OK, that’s not strictly true; I can work out a fair amount of what I read, but not enough to gain a full understanding.

      However, I don’t use wallpaper or other art on my digital devices as I prefer a neutral gray (PC) or absolute black (Android) screen. And, if I did, I’d probably use one of my 108,758 photos. I’m sure I could find at least one I liked.

      Thanks again.
