My friend, Catherine, asked “Wither is they?”
So, I respond, They is here:

Close-up of a Mentzilla (I don’t know a common name for it), taken down the street at my friend, Mark’s, house. I have mentioned Mark here a few times before; he is a curator at DBG. Recently, I submitted this photo for possible publication in a book of local photographers on Contemplative Photography (examples of which are here but aren’t local, just good examples that were used in a class I took at Working with Artists).

The Beginning of the Universe

The Beginning of the Universe

My birthday was yesterday. I celebrated the 30th anniversary of one of my earlier ones. A friend was over and I showed her my “electric” stuff, which she hadn’t seen. So I started to show her the process from start to finish. She interrupted me and suggested I use this other sliding bar that I have never used….doesn’t matter which one. We played for a few minutes. I took her here:

Then she took me there:

I asked her if she wanted to be responsible for my never leaving my house again so I can pinpoint who and why I’ll be on my computer the rest of my born days.

What with what she showed me and what I have to learn, also, about HDR (see an excellent source of that here), I’ll never get out of the house. Oh, I may go outside, but I won’t leave the yard long enough so I can come back in to alter my photos some more.

From my early morning treks to Denver Botanic Gardens, chronicling my friend, Ross’s, Perennial Walk installation, comes this little fellow having an early morning drink.
