365/2: 351. Eschewed the traditional stuff this year, went with a Scandinavian red/white theme.
A bit more spare; room to be, room to think. The visual clutter of Xmas gets to me.
It is astonishing, that on Flickr ...
I can have absolute no views, but someone’s favorited a photo. Astonishing.
365/2: 350. Just after dark.
Client Christmas parties.
Never heard of “White Elephant” gifting before. Next year, I’m hitting Archie McPhee. Instant (just add water) underwear, anyone? I can’t wait.
Medium: Why I care about PowerPoint.
It takes way, way too much time and frustrating effort to create excellence in Powerpoint. I find noone’s willing to pay for excellence; the presentational quality of a ... Xerox ... is fine with them. With sparkly transitions. *Gag*.
365/2: 349. Early today - only because we just don’t often get fog.
And you know, I went out to take this photo, and forgot to get the mail. Back out again I go ...
Snowing fit to beat the band.
About an inch, but I’ve got to clear the driveway. Links as I can (nearing 9 here).
365/2: 348. You’ll enjoy this one.
Completely unexpected after a sheet-cloud-grey day. There is so much difference in acuity when I use a prime lens ...
Gripe. Minor annoyance.
What is it with mini-USB plugs being used narrow side up? Or is it me? I’m used to the wider section of plugs always being on top ... I still haven’t gotten used to it. Kindle was the first device I ran across doing this. Now my iPad keyboard.
365/2: 347. Paperwhite in a teacup.
Think I’ve got a Brit in the house?
Buffer: The Two Keys to a Lasting Early Morning Routine.
Good advice. Our little wintering hummer forced an early morning routine on us (thawing feeders). The practice has boosted overall productivity.
The Millions: Garrets Etc.
“Most writers, unless they’re lucky enough to have an ideal place in which to work, make do with the best space available.” In my case, my own head (heh).
365/2: 346. The lonely mountain, in the snow (view large).
See the falling/blowing snow?
Xmas gift suggestion: Gordy’s camera straps.
Great stuff, and you’ll be supporting a fellow blogger.
Note: I’ll start doing these occasionally, pointing to those who frequent this blog and have wares for sale.
365/2: 345. Dawn this morning.
I was hoping for some other spectacular photo opp today, but nothing gelled.
The Fully Intended: Death to uniform.
Funny. I wrote a similar thing in high school, ranting against the ‘school uniform’ of the day. Or rather, the in-crowd’s ‘uniform’. Painter’s pants (wrinkled). Polyester skin-tight shirts/blouses. Wallabees. Docksiders. Dr. Scholl clogs.
Of course, I wrote it wearing blue flowered western shirts, cheese-yellow bell bottoms, Raichle hiking boots, schlumping about with a Sacs Millet bag.
My English teacher of the time loved it. My classmates ... not so much. I’ve never had so many irate girls yelling at me in my life. Heaven forfend you attack perceived ‘individuality’.
365/2: 344. Weather’s moving in this weekend.
Such a headache. And I don’t usually get weather headaches ...
“Mark All as Read”.
Too much stuff in the aggregator. I have to cry “UNCLE!”
365/2: 343. That kind ‘o day.
Shoot went well, programming went well ... links tomorrow. I’m exhausted.
Links IF I can. Sorry. Tootle along elsewhere. Craziness on this end.
365/2: 342. “Found greyscale.”
Light, middle grey, black. Well, sorta.
BarnFinds: The Original Commuter - 1972 Honda Z600.
Ah, memories. I remember the very first one I saw - I was walking back home from the Princeton Public Library, and one was parked in the lot. I saw it from the back first - and you have to get this - the heavy rubber gasket around the back window was originally dark black. It resembled a diving mask - and seemed not very much larger, either. Tiny wheels/tires, too. That one stuck in my history-banks, for sure.
Just too busy to do any ‘real’ shooting. Two new clients, I’ve got to get them settled in. So another sunset.
365/2: 340. Blah.
Totally spaced on today’s photo again. As muddled as my mind. I’d better buck it up and send this 365 off with a bang; it’s pretty sad.
EuanSemple: Social media purist.
“Content marketing” vs. just plain old blogging. Makes me think of the difference between beef cattle on big old ranches, versus feedlot beef. Feedlot beef facilities have to deal with a whole lot of ... well, ‘byproducts’. Whereas for traditional blogs, the byproducts transmute to fertilizer for future posts ...
