“Hmm,” readers are saying. Project 313 had 313 posts (duh!) and these posts cover ten posts at a time. That means … carry the one … HOLY CRAP! There’s gonna be at least thirty-one of these?”

And here me thinking readers can’t do math . . . anyway, they’re wrong. Some of the posts are fairly long, so I cover fewer of them at one time. That means there will be more than thirty-one posts.

Anyway, we’re at Post No. 021. Remember how I said that upcoming posts would be short? Well, I lied . . . we’re actually entering a string of fairly lengthy posts. Post No. 021 is actually one of the shorter posts I’m covering today. It deals with ponderings about Art (again, the result of creative processes and not a guy name Art), quantity versus quality, and the problem of letting bloggers know you visited without engaging too much.

In Post No. 022, I bemoan the state of the Internet, and specifically Google. At that time, Google was obviously heading toward being an evil corporation. Now, four years later, it’s made it, and then some.

What is Critical Thinking? Well, Post No. 23 explains it using Spam. I mean Spam as the delicious and healthy food stuff, and not spam as the tons of emails one gets, all offering the secret to all that is good in the world for three easy payments of $19.99. But wait! act now, and they’ll also throw in — for free — the secret to all that is mediocre in the world.

We’ve established revisiting the Project 313 offerings is primarily an exercise in laziness, but it’s also because I’m busy with stuff. Ain’t ‘stuff’ a great word? I use it for all manner of things since it can encompass pretty much anything.

So, where were we? Ah, yes . . . we’re approaching the teens. Post No. 011 and Post No. 012 are short offerings. Aside from the photos, cartoons, and doodles, there are few words, but, even if succinct, you’ll find quirky takes on both pressing and mundane topics.

In Post No. 013, I comment on what — four years later — is still a common issue with ‘newer’ blogs, although I’ve encountered the same thing in some longer-running blogs. What is it?

You should click on the link and read the post, but, in brief, it’s the lack of — or, incomplete — ‘About’ page. Why does this matter?

No post linked today since this is the last post of Project 313. Three-hundred-thirteen posts . . . Three-hundred-thirteen photos . . . Three-hundred-thirteen cartoons . . . Three-hundred-fourteen doodles.

I understand a lot of people got bored with the whole concept and the effort; rest assured I don’t mind as I’m prone to similar reactions to various projects. To those who stuck with it, kudos on your fortitude and thank you for putting up with all the silliness, tediousness, and other nesses that currently escape me.

I hope this captures the spirit of this last post. Thank you for reading along with me and thank you for all the likes and comments. 

You know, I often look back at times when I could knock out a short story with little to no effort. It’s something I hope to do again . . . soon.

Meanwhile, perhaps people will enjoy THIS bit of drama and pathos. 

And now, the photo:

Sometimes, one has to dabble into the world of dramatic expression.

How did I do?

Normally, this being Sunday, I’d have a quick post and a link to something few will mind missing . . . but, if you like B&W photography, you might want to look at THIS post.

Lots of B&W goodness, if I do say so myself.

And now, the photo:

Project 313 310

Pretty bold, if I do say so myself . . . which I often have to. 

A part of me can’t wait for the opportunity to cultivate colorful flowers once we settle down. Another part of me remembers how much work they are.  I guess the part I’ll feed will win out.

If you (dear reader) are a car person, then THIS post is for you. If you are not a car person, the post is still for you . . . you can find out what the fuss is all about.

For the record, I’m not a car person . . . but they do make great subjects for my photography. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 309

I struggled a bit with this shot of fireworks . . . but, ultimately, I think I done did it justice. 

Wow . . . closer and closer; only five posts left . . . well, six if you include this one. I think I should ramp it up for these last few posts. But . . . how!? I suppose I could link the best post ever. No. People need to find it on their own.

Instead, I’ll link THIS lofty post . . . still pretty good, I think. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 308

I’m not sure if this is considered “stepping up” . . . I mean, it feels like it but readers might not agree.

If you want to get bugged about something, read THIS post.

I used to photograph a lot of bugs. Had me veritable bug safaris, I did. Not sure why I stopped. Perhaps I’ll pick that up again. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 307

As far as I know, this Model B is still sitting there, where I left it about 31 months ago. At least, I hope so. 

Well, if you liked the previously linked post of B&W photos, you’re in for a treat with THIS post. Not only a crap-load of B&W photos but I also interview myself and wax poetic about life’s fortunes and misfortunes . . . actually, I wasn’t paying attention so I don’t know what I wrote about but I can guarantee it was amusing (at least, it was amusing to me). 

It’s actually worth a peak just for the photos; the brilliant writing is just gravy atop a gourmet offering.

And now, the photo:

Project 313 305

I seldom do landscapes in these treatments but Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak make a fine pair for an artistic offering.
