After several days of clouds and rain, the clearing sky was a delight this evening.
These photos, from about one hour ago, were taken two minutes apart at ISO 400, 1/160th second, at f11. And are without filter or fixings . . . .
After taking photos of Auggie last evening, I turned the camera, with macro lens, to a dark corner of the living room.
The peonies are from my garden.
I’m late in the day, on a day that would have been Aunt Esther’s 105th birthday.
As a reminder of this lovely woman:
I miss her terribly.
You beautifully created means of locomotion and safe passage from one point to another.
Why do you allow blockheads to drive these contraptions?
Am I asking too much to request that you strike with bolts of lightning those who:
Am I being mean-spirited?
If not, then perhaps one other query?
Might you please flatten the tires of every jerk who, when seeing a car starting to back out of a garage, or a parking space, and instead of stopping, decides to barrel past the car and almost get hit? (Dear Lord, I can’t tell you how many times a month I have to slam on brakes, even at a modest 5 m.p.h., because someone can’t give the 10 seconds for me to back out of a space.)
Thanks in advance for your many mercies to me, and your punishment to the trangressors.
P.S. — might you regulate my body temperature so that I don’t feel like I’m turning into an old man who is cold one minute, then warm the next?
