In Photography

I needed to clear my head and heart. I needed to reassess my place in the infinite cosmos. I needed to think of how I fit into the grand ocean of time. I also needed to drop off my dry cleaning.

So, I took a camera or two along for the journey.

I saw things. A spiderweb worth noticing.

And I was so busy noticing the web that I almost missed what was behind the web.

On the birdbath.

A hawk. What type of hawk, I do not know. A quick google search of birds of prey in Texas lead me to a frustrating set of photos with no identifiers for what type of bird of prey I was looking at. So, once again, technology has failed me and I am left simply saying, I saw a hawk.

And I had no telephoto lens with me. So, I left and took pictures of flowers.

And buildings.

And this sight.

And of course, this can only mean that I Scotsman moved to the island and decided to never leave. “Aye’ll not be needing me luggage t’any longer.” And they simply chunked it. I am also fully aware that the previous sentence does not read like a Scotsman, but I should have mentioned that it was obviously a Scotsman who had spent considerable time in Ireland.

Finally, I came across a fairly ordinary house.

What caught my eye was the cowboy altar/totem/sacrificial pole by the grass covered driveway. Not sure what they were going for but damn if they didn’t get to somewhere weird.

    I’ve come across your posts for some time now and admire your photography work. It wasn’t until today that I took the time to browse through the rest of your blog. Your writings and shared poetry are delightful.

    You moved to the island. Must be a whole different world. It’s been eight years but I hope the name rings a bell and that this message finds you in good health.
