I'm just going to sit here

I’m just going to sit here

Don’t make me decide. It’s too hot to do any­thing but swim. Real­ly  too hot to swim, so I’m just going to sit here.

Summertime

Summertime

Yep, that’s pret­ty much it.
Let it out

Let it out

It wasn’t the most amaz­ing sun­set ever, but it still makes me take a deep breath, let it out, and feel more relaxed. Michi­gan in the sum­mer is so amaz­ing­ly beau­ti­ful. I had no idea.
Brand Spankin' New

Brand Spankin’ New

I’m at an age where I seem to con­sis­tent­ly have 3 or 4 preg­nant friends at any time. At least this time it was a local friend so I can at least take some pic­tures now that the baby is here. I want­ed to meet the baby pri­mar­i­ly, but I also want­ed to give them some decent pic­tures. No more bad cell...
End of day monarchy

End of day monarchy

I’m not even sure what the title means, that is how fried I am. How­ev­er, a quick pho­tog­ra­phy stop for sun­flow­ers became even more glo­ri­ous with my lep­i­dopter­ous friend here. Again, unabashed word abuse, but I like the way it sounds.
My what big eyes you have

My what big eyes you have

I need­ed a goal before I began tack­ling some pho­to library orga­ni­za­tion and clean-up this evening. It only took me 4 days to actu­al­ly start after think­ing up the idea. Tedious but nec­es­sary. Find­ing inter­est­ing eyes makes it a bit more bear­able.
Hopefully "Pardon Our Dust" Coming Soon

Hopefully “Pardon Our Dust” Coming Soon

Can’t you just see it? Makes per­fect sense, doesn’t it? I’m a rock­star at mind-map­ping. Def­i­nite­ly need to add that to the résumé. Now I have to find the time to sit down and actu­al­ly do the redesign. The idea is that by post­ing this, I have to hold myself account­able to it. We’ll see how well it works....
A plumed thistle for your thoughts?

A plumed thistle for your thoughts?

Found on a pleas­ant evening dog-walk. It is either a Wavyleaf this­tle or a Texas this­tle — still inves­ti­gat­ing the sub­tle dif­fer­ences between Cir­si­um undu­la­tum and Cir­si­um tex­anum. Any botanists want to chime in? Both are plumed this­tles, I believe.
Turn the car around

Turn the car around

No seri­ous­ly, I swear there are zebras back there. Noth­ing like clas­sic week­end Amer­i­cana in Texas Hill Coun­try. Best unex­pect­ed zebra detail: fuzzy ears I just hope they aren’t for sell­ing zebra meat.
Bad influence

Bad influence

If only I could say that this wasn’t one of sev­er­al sim­i­lar­ly-sized stacks of treats to return with me. It’s for presents. Sure, presents. Except, I can’t give the squished ones away.Dino made me do it. Dragged me all over the gro­cery store.  
Oh, why hello there

Oh, why hello there

It’s nice to see you again too. You are so beau­ti­ful, moun­tains. I’m hap­py that after two years apart, you were only shy for a few days before let­ting me see you again. I’ve missed you. Why don’t we do some­thing on Sun­day? I hear the weath­er is sup­posed to be very nice. I would love to go...
