World Gone Wrong


Strange things have happened, like never before. 
My baby told me I would have to go. 
I can't be good no more, once like I did before. 
I can't be good, baby, 
Honey, because the world's gone wrong. (Robert Dylan)

Eat Beef


Now that the Lenten season is over, these chickens can now come out of hiding.

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
She would merengue and do the cha-cha

Romeo and Juliet Noir


A re-edit of a previous artsy image I made years back.  I think this was in Galway.  I'm really digging the film look nowadays.

Valentine is done 
Here, but now they're gone 
Romeo and Juliet 
Are together in eternity 
(Romeo and Juliet)

The Sewing Room


This image predates my DLSR phase.  Captured with a crappy point and shoot equipped with an 8 megapixel tiny sensor.  That was all I could afford to go to digital photography.  Used a wide angle adapter to get the fake fish eye look.  Re-edited to look like film.  Didn't take much editing considering the image was lo-fi to begin with.  After all these years, I still like it.

Reminiscing on the Eternal Love of the Spotless Mind

That’s the time you must keep on trying"

Chase the rainbow


Chase the rainbow, find and see what's at the end.  Must be the Irish water. Photo editing tends to go a certain way after drinking from the tap. Or was it the stout?

Tolerance is a good thing


"I ain't scared of you nor your limpid sword, buster."
"Nor do I. Not scared of yer bald head."

That day Vice President Dick Cheney and Sir Kenneth Branagh became good friends.

Voodoo Vibes at the Little House in the heart of Texas


A weather like this:  Have a cup of coffee.  Or better still, have a glass of wine.  Hope your day is going well.

The Wonderful World of Colors


Our room we were renting was bereft of color - as though time rewinded into the monochrome past. It is as though how the developers of photography have envisioned it. When photography first came out, it was already in color but the scientists who wanted to be artists thought the color photos were scandalous so they made everything black and white - even at times adding blur and scratches and sepia coloring to make the photos primitive. Fortunately, that has now changed. We now have the luxury to see things in color once again. A major leap forward to progress.

Nota Bene: the photo was edited using the Lark preset found under the hood of the @instagram.

Untitled Painting by an Unknown Artist


I was surprised to see this image got posted two hours ago without my knowledge. Siri is playing tricks on me.

Hope your day is going great.

Willkommen Vienna


Welcome to Vienna.  The sky is teal and the roofs are all made from clay.  Great works have been done here by the early thinkers of the elite Vienna Club.

Hope your day is going well.

Moon Over Cardiff


Our last night in Cardiff.  Not much going going on here.  It is the capital and largest city in Wales.  I thought of just heading down to the bar and chat with the bartender.  I then remember that there is no bar in our hotel.  We are holed in this small hotel and there is nothing much to do.  I'll try to count how many street lights are out there.

The Art of Contentment


For those who have been following this blog, this image may look familiar.  It should be as it was taken around 2020.  This post may be a reminder.

I believe this is Poco, one of the two donkeys who live in Berry Springs Ranch, a few miles from us.  The other donkey (not pictured) is Amigo.  Not sure why they named the donkey that  because she is actually female.  Maybe she is transitioning.  Who knows.  

Berry Springs Park and Preserve is a park in and of Williamson County, Texas close to the city of Georgetown, Texas. The park is on farm land with many pecan and oak trees as well as the waters of Berry Springs that provide a lake for fishing with fresh water. 

Hope your day is going well.
