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.
365/2: 102. Best seat in Galisteo, NM.
Our other plum tree is in full bloom. Sun is happy about it.
Second day of ‘summer sunshine’, got a couple more days due before it gets cold again.
MetaFilter: Reviving the Scarab of Ra.
Looking at my 1Password database ...
… the realization of just how many passwords I’m going to have to change … oh my freaking GOD ...
365/2: 099. From death, life.
Pretty severe crop, but worth it, IMHO.
Pacific Standard: Can You Learn to Judge Creativity?
“A new research paper suggests that amateurs can, indeed, be trained to be better judges of creativity — at least when it comes to children’s paintings.” Reminds me of the time when we were using children’s drawings in a particular company’s PR push … the creative director didn’t feel the drawings were ‘right’ and grabbed crayons and drew over the children’s work to ‘improve’ them. I felt that the children’s work should not have been altered, no matter what permissions had been obtained. Bothers me still.
Grab shot, tea under a patio umbrella for the first time this year.
Just a bit of green that caught my eye.
EldoradoSF.org: Summary Judgment, ECIA vs. Billings.
It seems the ‘chicken conflict’ is over. As one would expect, chickens are poultry and not ‘household pets’.
365/2: 096. Spring thunderstorm over the Sandia Crest.
Small storms all around. This one was flashing a bit of lightning. There are actually two storms to the right of this frame, and one to the left, as well. And here I sit, a few miles away, dry as a stiff martini.
