This is a look back at photos from the last five months of 2022.

“Why five months? Why not six months?”

Well, Bob — if that is indeed your name — I’, not going through this again. If you want an answer, read the intro to the previous post.

Anyway, we continue with a brief — but hopefully worthwhile — look at a sampling of the 2022 photos I snapped using the Nikon D7500 camera.

“So, like, are these the best photos of the year?”

This is a look back at photos from the first seven months of 2022.

“Why seven months? Why not six months?”

Well, Bob — if that is indeed your name — I have 56 photos and wanted to split them into two posts, and it just happened that the first 28 photos cover the months of January through July of 2022.

“But you could have just processed a few more on this first half, no?”

. . . everyone’s a critic . . . Yes, I could have, but I didn’t set out with a particular number in mind. Fifty-six is what I had in the end, and fifty-six is what I’m working with.

“So, like, are these the best photos of the year?”

New month, new year, new calendar . . . oh, and Happy New Year!

Note: you should see six calendars in this post . . . if you don’t, just reload the page as sometimes they’re slow to load.

Since I have mucho many AI offerings, I will be using them for the calendars. . . or I will until I get tired of AI-created stuff. Here is the first of the January offerings:

As before, I don’t expect anyone — in this digital assistant age — to actually use a paper calendar, but a few readers said they’ve used them, so I’ll continue to offer them.

Last month of the year, and I’m actually on time offering up a calendar.

I used to do monthly calendars, but I discontinued the practice beginning of 2016. The last monthly calendar I posted before this year was for December 2015.

This is the December 2022 Calendar I created at the beginning of the year (actually, at the end of last year).

Really, I don’t expect anyone — in this digital assistant age — to actually use a paper calendar (although many still do; they get them for free at banks and other places) . . .

Once again, I’m a tad late with this, but I’m presenting these for continuity.

So, once again we find ourselves hitting the road. Yup, we be traveling. The reasons are mixed . . . we’re attending a funeral and a birthday celebration; the funeral today, the birthday celebration tomorrow.

The person who died is . . . was the husband of one of Melisa’s cousins, and he was my age.

The birthday celebration tomorrow is for one of Melisa’s aunts . . . celebrating her 100th birthday, she is.

And that’s all Iwant to share about those two events . . . so let me get to some photos.

Well, that’s not true; I’m sure there will be additional consecutive posts, but not deliberately.

“What the heck are you talking about!?”

This is the 61st consecutive day that I’ve published something. To be clear, a blog post, and not a book. I remain — explicably — unpublished.

I should explain . . . WordPress does this thing where once you have a few days in a row that you post something, it sends you a congratulatory acknowledgment. At first, I wasn’t trying, but once it got to a few weeks, it had become a habit. More than a habit, actually; I was addicted.

OK, so addicted is a little strong . . .

I used to do monthly calendars, but I discontinued the practice beginning of 2016. The last monthly calendar I posted prior to this year was for December 2015.

This is the September 2022 Calendar I created at the beginning of the year (actually, the end of last year).

I used to do monthly calendars, but I discontinued the practice beginning of 2016. The last monthly calendar I posted prior to this year was for December 2015. And that’s why this year it keeps slipping my mind.

The last calendar I offered up was for March. Mind you, I had all intentions of doing one every month (considering they’re already done, not much of an effort), but it slipped my mind. This is the August Calendar I created at the beginning of the year (actually, the end of last year).

I don’t look at my stats much because — as mentioned before — they can be skewed by many things. Views can be skewed by having a gallery in the post, and visitor numbers can be skewed by back-and-forth comments between two people. Meaning, two people conversing over the course of a day would show up as multiple visitors (as far as I know, the system doesn’t check for unique visitors on any given day — or ever).

There are widgets that will give you better stats. I have one on my sidebar, but, as I said, it don’t matter none since the only person with any possible interest in the number of visitors during the recent past is me, and I’m not invested as much as some.

But, I am casually interested in another metric . . .

It would be nice filling-in that world map. Having said that, I got to thinking about how many countries I’m missing.
