Today I went on a three hour photo safari to Pike Island. There, surrounded by an astounding Island of nature and history, on a brilliant late fall day burning with golden light, I took over 500 pictures! I also accumulated dozens of charming stories and anecdotes. Then I came home and spent seven hours editing the pictures down to five really good ones.
Also I forgot all the stories I thought of.
But to make it all worthwhile I have to spread my five pictures out over, like, two weeks of blog posts, mostly by padding it out with my extensive assortment of pretty good pictures that came out of that same editing process.
I also have to recreate all those anecdotes, probably by making stuff up.
But before we all head to Pike Island for an extended stay, I first have to show you all of last week's pictures. While there is no coherent theme to these "cleaning house" pictures, the good news is that they're like a smorgasbord. You can just pick the random one you like and go with it.
And if you don't like any?
Soon there will be deer!
It will be worth the wait.
