Replaced the counter top microwave with an over the range model... and I really like it. Was great for a big cooking day like today!

Easy as pie

Easy as pieEasy as pieApple pie!

Made the crust from scratch, with a little help from my Mom. Family secrets!
Used my favorite apple... Macintosh. It is very good. But I'll adjust the filling a bit next time around. Don't need as much sugar or cinnamon as I used this time. I'll get it perfect!

Hello. This is Mop. And Flop. And a nice little flower too.
Amazing what treasures you can find at the thrift store!
A nice quick photo for a busy day. What will tomorrow bring?

Tried to capture the meteor shower... too much light polution, and probably went out too early. I tried a few new editing techniques with the shots I took. Not too good... Can't wait to get some dark skys. Adirondack will be soooo much better!

I've seen some "twirl" photos over the last two days... so I thought I would give it a try. Extreem twirl of my 5 headed lamp. Colorful. And groovy.

224 The Flying Humallendas

I watched this little guy training on his high wire. His name is Karl Humallendas, and he is one of the Great Flying Humallendas. It is impressive to watch him on the high wire, but his being able to fly takes some of the tension out of the show. None of the Great Humallendas has ever been injured during a performance, so this is a very safe act.

Took another look at the 2015 CVA Outdoor Scultpure Exhib entries. I like this 8 foot tall giraffe made of found steel objects. I award it the Karl Fisher Best in Show award. Very prestigious award! Very.

I watched this little squirrel for a few minutes. He didn't move from this spot, but kept his head kept sinking down lower and lower. Gave me a chance to get a nice B+W portrait for the Fall edition of the Gentelmen Squirrel Quarterly. It is an honor, really!

Printed and framed a group photo today - hung it on Dave's door. Won't he be surprised when he gets back to the office!
There as a space suit photo prop - with the face cut for photos - in the building last week. The entire group posed, then I put them on a photo from January 24, 2012 of the building we work in... Came out nice... Especially Lili's cheeta suit!

219/365 Drops

Drops on a misty afternoon. Had a nice cloudy, cool rainy day today. I liked it. Very nice break from the summer heat. I liked the water drops on the *side* of the Jeep. This is a near vertical side panel, and it was covered with small water drops. White on white... made some adjustments in Lightroom, and brought out the drop detail. Probably not too exciting for anyone else, but this one is for me...

... and if you didn't think that was exciting, how about this one?

This is my cable TV buster!   Just need to get a real Antenne mast rather than a broom handle and zip ties!
