Bill's doughnut bed. It seems to be filled it with things, but it is empty without my Bill.

Day 175. June 24: Negative space

Do I understand this theme? Not very well. I get the concept, I just don't seem to get the execution.

I met this guy while I was cleaning up some yard debris.
 I took a few pictures, then moved him 
somewhere out of my work area.

This is the main street through our housing development.
It is not a small stream.
At least, it is not USUALLY a small stream.
Right now, I am NOT SO SURE.

I miss Hostess

The more I try to center my shots, the more off-centered it appears I am.
Centering is not my strong suit, obviously.

At 11:00 o'clock 
I was trimming and weeding outside. 
I trimmed the huge hydrangeas 
away from the house 
(It's a superhighway for insect infestation to have shrubbery rubbing up against the house. 
I learned that on DIY network.) 
I stopped to make a still-life 
in the midst of my yard work. 
And OF COURSE I had to take photos...
I think I have finally figured out 
why 
I never get anything accomplished.

The camera was set on the floor on automatic shutter release 
with 12-second delay, just enough time to pick up ZuZu! 
The camera goes "Beep! Beep! Beep!" just before the automatic shutter capture, so it captured ZuZu's interest just before capturing the pic.

Day 158. June 7: Bright

It is NOT a bright day. It is a gloomy, wet, rainy, grey day. 
But the bushes down the hill are bright 
in the background through the rain-spattered 
sun-less sun-room window.

~~~ I wasn't very BRIGHT today, either. I didn't go to my cross-country 5k because I was spooked by the weather.com forecast for this evening. 
And it was WRONG WRONG WRONG.
BAH, HUMBUG, weather.com.

It bugs me how often I have great photos from the previous days that would be excellent for the theme of the current day. But I always take the daily photo ON THE DAY and I refuse to check ahead to make sure it won't happen. Part of the challenge, I guess.
[ I do like the way ZuZu jumped in behind the curtain and ended up in another photograph. LOL ]

One year ago today
