Day 28 Today I gave the Page-Walker Hotel the vintage photo treatment. How did I do? Did this at Matt’s suggestion. I like it. Look in my photostream for the full color version. Beautiful light, that came through in the antique version as well.
Late evening, and still no photo of the day… what to take? Night shot of my 10,000 oaks? Bugs? Remy! This is Jessica’s beta, Remy. He is visiting for the week. HARD to photograph! Used a flash light from above. I didn’t want to freak him out with a stobe. He didn’t seem to mind the flash light. But getting him in focus was impossible. But I like it, he is a nice guy to have around.
Matt’s birthday was on the 28th of April. We are having cake today! Make it last night, hope it is yummy! And look at my new glass cake plate and cover. Thought it would be tough to photography through, but ended up no problem!
I think of fall when I see red leaves… not so! These new red leaves are on a tree in Bond Park by the Boat House. Hanging in the bright light as the sun dropped near the tree tops on the horizon.
Monster gardenia bush is in bloom! Look at all the blossoms. Also note the cement rubble were Eric and I removed the slab that was poured up and over the siding. I’ll have to trim this bush back to side this corner of the house… but not until the blooms are gone.
Election day in NC. Mostly primaries, but the ballot did include a constitutional amendment: “Sec. 6. Marriage. Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State. This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties pursuant to such contracts.”
I see the courts will be busy if this passes. And it will make Liberty sad too.
Back to the pear tree. Last visited the pear tree on Day 156 - June 4th. On that day I wrote about how the squirrels chew up the fruit to get to the seeds before they ripen. They are going at it now! Here is one of the little guys today. Squirrelie sat right there and ate while I clicked away.
I don’t think I’ll get any pears this year. But this is the payback I get for keeping them off my bird feeders. Good trade I think. I know the chickadees think so.
At SAS taking pictures for the SAS 2012 Employee photo contest. Got some interesting stuff. But this young lad really wished I would move on. This tree was very tasty tonight, but hard to eat while being watched. I moved on, and he went back to trimming the landscaping. Everyone is happy.
