365/2: 113. Crazy skies, again.
WNYC: Do World’s Fair Relics of Queens’ Past Have a Place in Its Future?
As a young boy, my parents took me to the dinosaurs. And I had to share my plastic dinosaurs with visiting friends from the UK. Bummer.
365/2: 112. Checking baselines the *proper* way.
I need a haircut. When the curls start back up again … just makes the remaining hair look thin.
Rio on Targa 8. ShowPro V and Procall X on Genesis through Doves.
Talking A/V talk. Just because I don’t want to forget (and perhaps someone with a similar work background will find this). My TVL 32-bit video system, alas, seems to have disappeared from internet history.
HuffPo/Roadtrippers: That Time Subterranean Aliens Killed 60 People in New Mexico.
“His fears were realized when after drilling underground he came face-to-face with a 7-foot tall, stinky, gray alien. Obviously he freaked out and grabbed a pistol he was carrying (because that’s what engineers do?) and shot and killed two aliens.” I’ve heard a lot of strange alien theories, living here in NM. Everyone seems to have a ‘close encounter’ story of some kind. Never heard this one, though.
Tired of your house’s existing state of decoration?
An article I just skimmed said, “Put furniture in other rooms, in unexpected positions.” I just put a living room chair on the bed. I have a feeling that when Sandra sees this, all hell will break loose.
Later: Yup. “No room for you. I guess you want to sleep on the floor.” Woof.
Sorry; busy morning.
A full email box this morning meant I had to spend a deal of time writing replies. And, whereas I’m short and concise on this blog, I tend to go deep on email. I’ll get to links soon.
Autoweek: Steve McQueen’s Jaguar XKSS in the Hollywood Hills.
365/2: 111. Storms hovering around this afternoon.
BoldItalic: The Gutters in Buena Vista Park are Made Out of Old Headstones.
Even a gravestone isn’t immortal. For some reason, these photos serve to remind me that blogging is even more ephemeral, another warning about where I invest my time.
365/2: 110. Get yer rocks off.
New Age folks like to leave cairns and anthropomorphic assemblages of pebbles on large table rocks around here. Outtake: Happy horses and happy riders in the Preserve on Easter.
365/2: 109. Sandra, concentrating.
365/2: 108. Lady Grey feeding her young’uns.
Old Nikon 75-300 mounted on my 50D; terrible quality, sorry. Worth the shot, though.
365/2: 107. From this morning’s shoot.
Grumpy ham on the hoof.
Photo shoot this morning; links later on.
Tootle along elsewhere for the morning, kids. I’ll be back in the afternoon.
365/2: 106. Struggling for the shot today.
After a day of digging into Expression Engine programming (changing an existing site’s mobile layout through Foundation 5), my brain is just *not* in a creative space. I liked the pattern against the viga crack, and that’s all.
inessential.com: Mark All as Read.
A frequent reader asked me if I’d read this (yes), and then went on to tell me “that’s okay for everyone else, but NOT for you.” Jokingly. Feared my frequency variations of late. It’s getting to summer, when I will no longer be posting on weekends. Need that natural Vitamin D! ‘Mark All as Read’ will be used.
car-ux.com: Dashboard views of latest cars.
Luxurious. I prefer the ones I shoot at Santa Fe Concorso each year. For example … racing Corvette, gullwing Mercedes, convertible 300SL, AC Cobra, unrestored Jaguar D-type, Aston Martin DB-5, Ferrari, Jaguar E-Type, Dino Ferrari, Chevy Corvair, Hispano-Suiza, and the Porsche 550, my favorite for minimalism.
Just got a seminar email ...
… and on requested unsubscribe, I see a one line piece of text on a white background … “Your subscription has been adjusted.” And my mind immediately flashes, “Oh shit.” Here comes the avalanche of spam.
365/2: 105. A bit of selective color fun.
Still a little cold, after our recent spate of snow, to sit outside … hence the blue pillow.
365/2: 104 outtake. Moonrise.
Moonrise with interesting foreground light as the sun goes down.
365/2: 104. Shadowplay.
paulstamatiou: Design for Curation.
“Swiping down to hide less-than-stellar photos is as satisfying as crossing something off your to-do list. It’s the only curation tool you need for a stark gallery app.” I can think of many apps I’d love to have this feature in.
Near 80 yesterday, and now we have a winter storm watch for northern NM. Weather’s moving in!
Later: Outtake, just before dark. Strange brown strip of clouds.
