Profile Pic/k-ture

October 2, 2009

In hopes of using something distinctive and recogizable I decided to use a section of my custom header photo.

Some of you might remember the original shot which was taken at the Bob Dylan concert we attended here in town almost a year ago. Not bad for a cell phone camera photo.

Hey LOOK! There's Zimmy!

(I ran it through ‘Dumpr’s’ Alien Vision¬†effect – see right sidebar under ‘Fun Stuff’.) {Below, bonus Bob photo.}

So, having made the choice for the I.D. / Profile picture all of a sudden I find myself wanting to change the header photo. I’ll see if I can’t resist the urge and maintain for a bit to see if it doesn’t just go away.

What’s Bugging You? II

October 2, 2009

Here’s some (really bad) photo evidence of the creatures I mentioned the other day HERE. Sorry about the picture quality…. the focus when zoomed really sucks.

Hadn’t seen one like this before. Besides his loverly yellow jacket he had a half-dozen long spikes dotted along his body. Most caterpillars we see are rust and black banded ones.

Eye On The Skies

October 2, 2009

Though I haven’t participated in about a month I got some shots of our stormy skies this week that I thought I’d share with the Skywatch Friday crew. We’ve had a slow moving low pressure system passing over Southern Ontario¬†which has brought all sorts of rain and some pretty fierce winds. All these shots are from my cell phone camera; two of them taken while driving.
