A Year In Photos: 2017 (Part IV)

(Apr 13 2:32 p.m.)

Okay, so spring wasn’t all messy and bleak as previously stated.  There were good parts and bad parts like any season.  I can’t speak much for the progress of others… they have their privacy and/or blogs.

Rope table.  (And lingering snow outside, soon to vanish for good.) (Apr 6 2:57 p.m.)

As for me, 2017 was the year I got an official ASD diagnosis.  It remains to be seen as to whether state services will help my employment prospects.

A Year In Photos: 2017 (Part III)

(Jan 4, 2017 4:48 p.m.)

The new year begins where the previous left off.  And where we live, that means winter is still lingering around, with snow (and ice).

Eventually, that white stuff clears up. Continue reading A Year In Photos: 2017 (Part III)

“Hello.” (Feb 21 1:59 p.m.)

So… where was I?  Oh, yeah.  I can get silly sometimes.

(Apr 15 5:21 p.m.)

My mother bought this snowbird in December of 2016.  A traveler with a backpack, it was a nice addition to the home.  It also gave me something I desperately needed since the conception of the blog: a decent avi.  I gave that bird a few shooting locations.

I’m on top of the world! …Okay, just a car. (Apr 15 5:26 p.m.)

Plant soil, roots. (Jan 27 2:49 p.m.)

So, we’re well into the new year.  Storms have come and gone, and the kids are back in school again.  (None mine, lol.)  2017’s wildfires paved the way for mudslides, and… it’s like my fingers would begin to hurt how much I’d be crossing them hoping this year will be better.  There are, however, always good and balanced parts to reflect on.

Library stool. (Jan 19 2:17 p.m.)

2017 wasn’t exactly a great year for subjects.  But it was the first whole year I had a modern iPhone.  An iPhone SE camera doesn’t sound like much, but, with the right software, it’s enough to experiment with, and reflect on my small world, here in Maine.

Non-improved photo. (Jan 19 2:18 p.m.)

Improved technology, improved HDR and improved methods (or so I’d like to think). Continue reading A Year In Photos: 2017 (Part I)

Second snow

Partial moon in top-left corner. (Dec 10 7:08 a.m.)

For the second snowfall of the season, which happened over the last two days, we got around 4″.  (And you can click here for the first snow, short-lived.)  We’re expected to get more precipitation tomorrow, with temperatures in the 20s and 30s.

(Dec 10 8:18 a.m.)

This time, on Saturday, I could somehow tell the clouds in the sky were snow clouds. Continue reading Second snow

Rest

Next Sunday: full moon…  Last night: it took a while to fix the color balance for this photo… Today: downloaded MuseCam for manual white balance! (Photo taken Nov 29 5:27 p.m.)

Yesterday and Sunday I slept longer than expected, that I rose later in the afternoon.  (Of course both days I went to sleep between 8 a.m. and noon.)  These days it’s like I need to sleep in, sleep the day off, sleep it away— just go to bed and not get up for anything.  Getting to sleep and having no reason to get up is not without its obstacles Continue reading Rest

Breathe

(Nov 25 4:18 p.m.)

Sometimes we get too involved in our work (and/or get frustrated with it) that we miss out on life.  We can miss out on the little things, and on ourselves too.

(Nov 25 4:17 p.m.)

There’s a whole world out there.

(Nov 22 3:58 p.m.)

But you’ll have to… you know, physically leave the house to see it.  The “information superhighway” is just that— a means to transport information, not life!
