More non-organic photos and “P” stories voting reminder

The Alphabet Challenge “P” Stories are experiencing what has become the norm halfway through voting rounds. Namely, the voting goes from slow to glacially slow. Actually, given the changing climate, glaciers might be changing a tad faster than the vote count.

I suppose it could be the daily reminders act more like a deterrent than an incentive. I mean, there is such a thing as being too needy, and that’s aggravated by constant nagging. Starting with the next round, I might drop the frequency of the reminders to every other day. Of course, some readers enjoy both the photos and the constant reminders to read and vote.

If you are one such reader, thank you in advance for eventually reading our stories and for eventually casting a vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge P-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link

Of course, it could also be that our plots are a bit like that panel . . . a bit too complicated and requiring reading expertise that is lacking in most people . . .

. . . even when we beautify the offerings . . .

Then again, what we see as beautification might be seen as nothing but a mess.

Because we are amateurs with little feedback from adoring fans we don’t yet have, it could also be our plots are simple, but not exactly elegant.

As such, we might fail in our effort to connect with our readers (current and potential).

. . . we could try to smooth out the rough spots . . .

. . . but that wouldn’t change the underlying structure. Not even if we simplified it to black and white.

Ultimately, our stories will either click with readers or fail to connect. Our job, then, is to write and hope that a sufficient number of readers find value, entertainment, and have a positive life-changing experience from reading our stories. 

The new Gallery for the reminder photos is HERE<<<Link. Some photos are only slightly larger (30-50%) but the details — and quality — are better in SmugMug than here.

I always struggle with what I should post here. It’s usually a post for people who have already voted and have the time to go wander up and down the blog. I try to pick an interesting blog post that I’m at least marginally proud of. This HERE<<link is about the RAW deal. Photographers might be interested, but I doubt it because they probably should already know this stuff. Other people, though, might be amazed!

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

    These did “come to life” with your added colorful processing! I like!

      Thanks, Ann. It’s only when you get to see the clear picture that you realize many things are caca.

      Thus, most things look better smeared and blurry . . . other than, of course, actual caca.

    I love all the instrument dials – but that electrical gadget really has me puzzled. 😨


    • disperser says:

      I thought at first it might be a signaling device, but it looks more like a switch of some kind.

      Perhaps mvschulze will chime in and tell us what it might be.

        It’s reminiscent of an electrical relay or contactor but I think that’s a spring, not an electrical coil. I reckon it may be a thermostat, with a bi-metal strip expanding or contracting to make or break contact. The spring provides an an adjustable mechanical pressure.
