I moved closer cautiously. It’s something I learned from the Doctor: always move towards danger rather than away from it—it’s the last thing they’ll expect. I used to ask him who ‘they’ were, but he’d just look at me in exasperation and say, 'It’s a metaphorical “they”. “They” as in “the personification of whatever is causing the danger.’
'But why"they”?’ I’d press him. 'Why not “he” or “she” or “it”?’
'Because danger always comes with reinforcements,’ he’d say.

Yesterday it started snowing right before I had to head to class. It doesn’t snow very often here and when it does it usually doesn’t stick, so just in case I took my camera with me. By the time I left the uni it had turned into a proper snowstorm! Unfortunately it was already past 4 which means it was getting dark, but I decided to walk through the botanics for some photos anyway. I used long shutter speeds so I could keep my ISO low, allowing me to brighten them a bit in lightroom afterwards. I love this beautiful city, and even more so in the snow! Shot in Glasgow, UK, with a Canon 600D and an 18-55mm lens.
The McKenzie River, just east of Eugene and Springfield, is a popular recreation spot for rafting and fishing. Boat launches, day-use camp sites and swimming areas are also available within the McKenzie River Corridor in eastern Lane County. And don’t forget to look up to spot the bald eagle nests high in the evergreens!
I spent three years on Earth as a management consultant, back when I was young and black. I’m very good at answering people’s questions with things they already know, and then charging a fortune for the services.
