It must be hard to let go of a beloved pick-up truck, so this Hill Country owner found a new use. Later, out on the lake, I mentioned this to Mike (below) who thought it was a bright idea.

This is a submission for the Photo Friday theme of "immature." Honestly, I don't know if the immaturity comes from an exposed belly on a cold day, or from surreptitiously photographing that belly. Twice. There are things I really love about my little camera.

And of course I recognize that my interpretation of this event is in part a reflection of age.

This is for the Photo Friday theme of "evil." I didn't want to put pictures of individuals, be too political, or try to fit into an Evel Knievel costume, so I was left to examine the darkness of my own heart. Then I went and attacked an avocado. It had it coming.

fall, part two or three

Last week I took a sick and tired day from work (don't tell anyone) so I could take advantage of the fruits of global warming. While not entirely related to the picture above, a haiku came out the experience:

Blue skies, nothing but
blue skies. Oh, and a yellow
Chinaberry tree.

I also had occasion to visit an air show, where the skies were equally blue.

I decided to take an Alfred Hitchcock approach to the assigned theme of "gross." That is, rather than directly show you what makes this portable toilet gross, the icons lead viewers to conjure grossness from the dark recesses of their own consciousness (ooh, gross). Plus, I like to minimize the amount of time I spend in there.

election day

Here's Air Force One about to leave following the President's ballot casting. After I took this picture, security told me "we need you to step back." Fight the Power! I wanted to tell them of the likelihood that I had just counter-balanced all their boss's votes.

Here's my submission for the theme of "light." I was thinking that "light" could be the theme in just about any picture, since there's got to be at least some to get an image. Here, though, the interpretation is of color. Light could also be the opposite of heavy, which could then be measured either in pounds or in intellectual value. This heavy dog is light.
