Warm and May Day

Ah, color! Ah, Sunshine! It will be warm today and tonight as we sleep.

I’ll be doing some transplanting this evening to my new DIY planters. We have tomato plants galore. Can’t wait for the juicy sweet fruit later this summer.

The tomatoes are just too small to see in this photo. There will be more film in a few weeks.

I think this is the third season for the catnip. It is going wild in the sun. The leaves are gigantic. I hope it retains its intense cat-seducing aroma.

I bought a little container of basil from Trader Joe’s for $2.99. It will be transplanted as well.

So glad we had a visit from Brian M. Pratt. I need to see my boy sometimes. The week was a very pleasant mix of work and play. The next time I see him will be at his graduation ceremony. He receives his Juris Doctor in June!

Popcorn Frog

Good morning and welcome to my world. I am up at the luxuriously late hour of 9 a.m.

Above is a quick pix I tried of a little piece of popcorn. I thought it looked like a frog.

I stuck it on a pin and wedged it among three plastic stars. It’s rather drab. I think I need stronger bulb in the lamps I place outside my light box.

I’m thinking about photos and about my mess of a Flickr Stream.

I am an optimist and a child at heart. I am imagining the process of refining its contents. It shall come to pass.

Here’s a new photo I took when last at the post office.

I imagine a series of postcards or notecards. They are probably too weird and abstract for massive Wal-Mart level consumption. That’s a good thing.

I absolutely have to make myself take the Photoshop class next semester. I’ve been saying that for two years now.

I love industrial material. This is a big pipe on a flatbed that was parked on Hilltop Drive.

This is the photo “posterized” in Gimp. I guess I could Play around with that program and stop being intimidated. I should buy the $50 book and learn how to use it.

I’ve got crap chores to do today. The fun must be postponed for a few hours. I could just get lost Playing all day if reality didn’t intrude. But hey, life has so much variety. That’s what keeps it fresh.
