I have quite the hodge-podge today. I went for a little walk but didn’t last more than about half an hour — it is lousy with cold and wind. First, though, I took some pictures of the gorgeous weather from inside to get revved up for a jaunt into Cold Town, USA, and then a few other household scenes.
Rain beading on my bedroom window. That is a crabapple tree out there.
Rain on the screen.
I haven't 100% been taking care of this plant. You may have gathered this by the overwhelming crappiness and the spiderweb thread thrown in for good measure. This is a picture of guilt itself.
It's like my very own monochrome Saturn right in my bedroom.
Just a cat being beautiful.
My diet has been disgusting lately. I'm trying to fix that, so yesterday I had vegetables and today I tried this thing called fruit. I was met with this kiwi's ambivalence.
A little later I noticed Layla staring out the window looking hungry and/or angry. I thought it was another cat but it turned out to be the first, second, third, and fourth robin of spring.
Once I got brave enough to face the wind, I went straight for the tennis ball. Notice the paw prints at the bottom. I thought at first this was something a little more exotic, they looked different somehow -- but I think they're just prosaic old dog prints. Probably from the same dog that left that tennis ball there.
Gasoline rainbows. Or a rainbow and some peacock feathers, to be more precise.
Some goldenrod at the edge of the field along the dirt road.
I love the color of these limbs when they're wet.
Some nice textureness.
I just like the angles.
Fulfilling my legal obligation with pictures of lichen and curly stuff.
Samaras in a fallen tree.
Samaras blowin' in the wind.
I also took these pictures in my room last night. Tried some more light painting — with the moon this time. Nice paintbrush, huh.
Moving the camera around to produce some bleary effects.
Then the moon crawled in my window (left) and ran riot (right).
