Okay; that does it!
I'm forcing D to wrap up warm this afternoon, and then we're going to the park!
And don't forget your camera.
I still have pictures in my camera from my last trip to the park, but I still can't find the cord to my camera, so I can't get them onto the laptop... :-(
So no point in bringing the camera, really, as I'd just be replacing one set of park-pics with another...
Talking about cords- I was recording something onto tape yesterday and the rabbit snuck up and bit clean through the microphone lead.
Cats do that, too--Vincent bit through a Christmas tree light set last year.
There is a solution--a spray called Bitter Apple, that tastes awful but is nontoxic, I assume for rabbits as well as cats.
Pet stores carry it.
Thanbk you for the tip. We'll go search some out. Just suppose he were to sever my internet connection- aaaargh!
The bitter apple never worked for Leona, my vet told me it often does not. YOu might try this instead.
Thanks. That's great. We'll see if we can buy it over here.
I'll put Ailz onto it. She loves doing that kind of research....
Very pretty. Were it not for some of the leaves in the penultimate shot I'd think these were taken in the summer.
That, and maybe the bare tree in the first shot gives it away a little too. :P
Also I think there's a softness to the light that you don't get in summer.
It's true. The light is softer in autumn and in spring. Somehow, in the autumn, the light looks 'older' and in spring it looks 'newer'.
I suppose that sounds pretty silly! YOur autumn looks a lot like the one we've had so far, though.
No, not silly at all- I think that's exactly how it is.
Sometimes in early evening at the cottage I go for a walk. The woods is full of captured sunlight - I love it. But I can't quite seem to take a picture of it. I'm sure part of it is that I *see* it in three dimensions, and when I take the picture it's just flat on the page.
If I had suzilem
's eye and talent, perhaps I could take the picture and have it look like what I see-what I picture.
If I'm unsure about a photographic set-up I sometimes shut one eye to test how it's going to look with a dimension removed....
I'll have to try that. I went through a period of time where I HATED my camera (I have a pentax K-1000) and was going to sell it - there's a gentleman who owns the camera shop where I take it to be repaired, and he is interested in it. Now, maybe, I'm going back to it. I have a roll of Holga film to be developed, but I can't find anyone around here that does it...
There's one place in the whole of Manchester that will develop Holga film. I went there once and- well, it's a long trek and it's expensive and I'm afraid I've given up now on the plastic cameras...
Yes, you must. I've missed seeing your photographs.
Yes, I have too. Please take some and post them..soon.
Before all the leave are gone.....
first shot with the sky-trail overhead totally reminds me of a ST:TNG episode. the one where picard (a righteous man!) gets knocked out by some freaky probe and ends up stuck in his own brain living on a world that died out like a million years ago. and he gets old and has kids and the last thing he sees is the probe launching to take the memory of this dying world off for other people to see.
funny. just reminded me of that.
Because that's my favourite Star Trek episode of all time. It brings me to tears every time I see it.
no shit?! ha ha ha!
that flute music he plays is rock on. and so damn poignant. when i think of lumpen bob and the way that ends, it makes me think of that episode. mezzler looking back on his own life, at the same time as looking forward to bob's future.
TNG kicks a thousand asses.
It's a lovely tune. It starts off like it's going to be "Speed bonnie Boat" then takes off someplace else.
