Photo a Day #258/365

I went outside to fill the bird feeders after lunch because lunch made me nauseous and I had to go get some air. Today’s been a smidgen of a roller coaster for the ol’ tummy pouch. I’m okay though. May you live in interesting times, and all that shit.



I had to run to the store to pick up an online order for my beautiful, brilliant wife. That means I had a few candidates for the photo a day thing that weren’t taken in the cellar next to my desk. Sweet.


Hello and welcome to design a-la 1918 or so.

Wait… I thought that was a three wheeler, but now that I look at it again, is it a bike with a side car?

I was stopped at a left turn light, the blue lights were across the street. It took me four tries to get this without having a car drive through the shot and block everything.

Bird Houses

If you zoom in on this picture you can see some twigs inside of the bird house. It’s awesome.


I have checked on it a couple of times today and I have seen a little sparrow going in and out of the bird house and I love it so much. I don’t imagine I’ll be able to get close enough to see any potential eggs, should the universe dictate that there will be eggs, but I hope I can figure out a way.

Here’s a picture of the other bird house that’s off to the side of our house. If you zoom in on this one you can’t really see anything inside. I can’t tell either way, really, but it looks like this house is still available for rent.


On an unrelated note, here is today’s photo a day selection. It was nice to be able to turn the camera’s ISO setting down from my usual in doors go-to of 3200 to my usual out doors go-to of 100.

Sick Day Cats

Feeling a little better after some food, but a little worse after some water? What the hell, stomach? Anyway, here are two cat pics.

I didn’t sit in front or her, so she didn’t run away. 215/365
I like this one. The point and shoot is often fuzzy in the living room light but this one is sharper on her eyes and that makes me happy.
