In my effort to occasionally keep you appraised of my photographic shenanigans, and to occasionally poke holes in my long "Agua Fria" episodic story box, so it can breathe, I have fallen into the pattern of showing you pictures a couple of times a week. But as I set down to show you pictures today I don't actually know what I have in my pile. So let's just stick our hand in and see what we pull out, okay?
So, first we have a picture from the back room of my library, taken near the end of the giant MACHINE. It's probably the best picture I have for today, as I got the trickery right, so it has a lot of verisimilitude.
I'm just crazy about verisimilitude, but didn't know until just now about that first "i" in it! Of course, there wasn't really a bat flying around in the back room, but it has happened, and one of my co-workers was once in the elevator with a bat!
Next we have some... girders. This is from the underside of a railroad bridge over the Mississippi and I suppose I fancy it because it feels like some kind of Life Magazine picture from the thirties or forties.
Here is a creek picture from the height of Spring runoff, run through one of my favorite photo filters. This creek is already barely a trickle again. The Spring runoff goes by fast!
I'm sorry. I can't really explain why I spent ages putting a cat calendar cat into a Van Gogh painting. But I thought I should keep you up to date.
I'm not sure I have any better explanation why I put a yawning Calvin here, but at least it doesn't leave me puzzled.
And finally these figures are from a book about Partisans in WWII, put into something from Versailles, maybe? Perhaps it all has something to do with Ukraine on my mind?
