My Backyard In Spring

The truth is that it looks the same all year! Those old woodchips need to be swapped out though. All of the extra rain over last winter has brought forth a bumper crop of weeds though and it’s an every-other-day task to spray or scuffle-hoe them down. I am very sure that the HOA people are sending notices to all of the homeowners about controlling their weeds which too many of them don’t. Stop being so lazy, people!

Lenka Grayscales

On today’s ride, I took 21 photos, let’s begin with these three. The Lenka application is strictly for the iPhone platform and shots only in grayscale, or black and white if you prefer. I rarely use it but its photos tune up very well in the high dynamic range app on the MacBook. It was 80F with the tiniest breeze, perfect!

The Pigeon In The Mist

This Nikon photo was shot in grayscale yesterday looking west toward the small mountains west of my place. I didn’t notice the rock pigeon in the mist until this photo made it to my MacBook desktop. Sunny, windy, and just a meager 53F are on deck for the valley today which really sucks it but supposedly the high will hit the 80s later this week. Seeing is believing, folks, it’s still true! This photo is 100% unprocessed.

The Color of Nevada Coffee

My sister left her bag of coffee here when she left a few days ago so I knew that it would only be a matter of time until I made myself a cuppa. The first cuppa I’ve had in a long time actually and this dark roast is really good! I miss the good coffee buzz.
