GoPro rough-cut



My first panorama with a GoPro. I didn’t take it thru all the versions of software but like the feel of the image with this one test. The folks beside me were shooting with one also from the distinct beeping I heard from their camera.

Curious that wordpress puts an image caption on the post? I can’t keep up with all the digital world and find some of it annoying, I did mention my only friend is a bird! (chuckle)…

Very thankful for heat and electricity thru this event, first time ever my truck couldn’t get out and currently. Big Thanks to the folks plowing enough for us to get out as I posted this. Must have been our Hospital neighbor? Our street has been in third world condition for years which I can live with but being stranded is a little too much, so very grateful.

The Passiflora rich in religious symbolism still occupies my thoughts during these short days with an artic plunge and Windy Clipper System upon us. Much appreciating our Franklin stove while listening to David Bowie’s, “Lazarus” and our Presidents hope in the state of the union speech. This passion flower photograph was taken last August 20th, 2015 out our backdoor.

Re-visited our passion flower photos from last summer from our backyard. Still in awe of finding some blooming this month.

I was surprised by a wall of passion flowers in bloom on a side street in the FAN while searching out the last of the Holiday Lights with some family last evening.

Finally more arctic air making it down for a few days and some well spent time in a museum.

This is a ” Danaide” in a friends private collection that I enjoy more than ones in the museum show. It was curious how the same pieces varied so much? I noticed the bronze’s in the show were cast in the 1950’s _ 80’s and nineteenth century. Looking forward to reading more about Rodin!
