RPoD: Lotus in decline

I’m back….and a bit knackered as the Brits would say.  Good trip, great and not so great food, fantastic weather.  The only exception was Mr. TxPepper having a severe case of the hiccups for the whole! trip!  The entire! trip!  11 days! worth!  This not the first time and certainly not the last.  When this happens he doesn’t rest which leads to exhaustion along with no appetite which made food exploration little more problematic as one person just can’t eat that much and still wear the same clothes.

So I offer up a picture from the past just to let you know that I’m still alive and hopefully will finish up my Antarctica trip report in the next several days.

I thought I would be finished with my Antarctica trip pics but alas….I got severely sidetracked watching the Summer Olympics.

And this evening, I have the good fortune to head out on another grand adventure…which I will reveal via my Instagram account.   I will probably be posting some Insty pics as I go along….but blog posts…it will be a lot easier and tidier to post after I return.  In addition, I would like to keep the Antarctica posts in one continuous chain…which isn’t really necessary because of those little things called tags.  I’ll think about it.

So I offer up this random-picture-of-the-day instead.

I was never really excited about this particular camera.  It seemed that the majority of my pics were always fractionally out of focus.

Working on Antarctica Part 12 and should have it up in a day or so.


RPoD: Akaroa, New Zealand

Another Antarctica post is forthcoming but until then…New Zealand!

RPod: Random Picture of the Day

Since it’s taking me a little more time to write my next Antarctica installment, I thought I would post a random picture.  I may do this a little more often as I sift through some of my earlier photography.

People often ask what I do with all the pics I take…if I print them up in book form or whatever.  Mostly, I randomly view them, relive the moment, and move on.  Rinse and repeat. I keep saying that I’m going to print and frame but never get around to it.  Now I can say that I’ve released them into the wild so that hopefully others might enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by!

Side Note:  I don’t really like birds as they give me the heebie-jeebies (I blame Alfred Hitchcock and my mom’s dearly departed cockatiel) but I find myself photographing them frequently.  They can be a very challenging subject matter.
