Yes, yes, I know that the way to actually have my Photo Friday/Kitsnaps post regularly is to prepare them weeks in advance and get them set to auto-post. It’s the weeks in advance part where I’m falling down, especially because I’d *like* to post the pictures false-framed the way I’ve done the last ten or so.
Possibly this is a terrible choice and I should reconsider it forever, especially as I’m reasonably certain the only one who actually cares about it is me. I just feel like the images look more *finished* with the frames, and it gives me a sense of satisfaction. OTOH, so would posting images more regularly. @.@ *Either* way I really need to find the time and enthusiasm for going through thousands of digital images and deciding what’s worth keeping and what isn’t. @.@
Anyway, for today we have the penultimate image from our brief sojourn in Athy, taken while I was wandering down side roads to see what was to be seen.
Kitsnaps: Canal Reflection
I’m going to have to do something about the fact that my Computer That Goes Clunk can no longer run any image manipulation programs (the failed update that caused it to start Going Clunk had something to do with the graphics card, and even *booting* photoshop elements is now impossible), because I’m running low on the handful of Photo Friday images I’d prepped. Fortunately (?) I’ve been doing such a bad job remembering to post them they’ve lasted a while… :}
Reflection on the Grand Canal in Athy, Co Kildare, Ireland, circa Jan 2006. I could do a whole series of Reflection photos, now that I think of it. I like them. :)
Kitsnaps: Red Cow
I’m irrationally fond of this cow picture. It’s not, technically, even a good photo–the focus is a little soft–but I just love this cow. It is a good red cow. It has a good cow face.
I love you, cow. ♥
Kitsnaps: River Barrow
This was taken just about exactly ten years ago, which flat-out does my head in. I guess we’re really officially in Ireland 10 years; this has been our 10th New Year here. Wow.
Happy New Year, everyone. Let’s take some names and kick some ass this year. A lot of people I know need that, after the last year. I love you all, and I’ve got your backs. ♥
Kitsnaps: Song Thrush at Sunrise
Look! Look! I’m remembering to post a Friday Photo! Very late, but we’ll take what we can get. :)
It turns out I really enjoy taking pictures of birds, although I’m not very good at it and get decent shots through luck more than skill. This one, f’rex, is pretty but a microcosmically small percentage of the original photograph, which I don’t believe I had the telephoto lens on hand for. Still, I like it. :)
