Apparently it's monsoon season here, and the deluge of rain daily has foiled our living room renovation and frame-making plans for the entire week. And I've come down with a summer cold, so that has me feeling extra blah and with zero energy today. My one accomplishment this morning: I organized a bunch of old photos on my old powerbook. The theme of today's post is "These are not good photos but I like them anyway." Some are out of focus, some are grainy, some are downright everyday dull. But for some reason, I feel an affinity for each one of them.
Pelican takes flight. Taken at dusk in Cedar Key, Florida in April 2009.
Abandoned flip-flop on the side of the road in Cedar Key. Taken in April 2009. For some reason, this pic reminds me that summer is winding down and it makes me feel a little sad. Perhaps is I should go shop for some skinny jeans and boots I'll feel better.
Big dog "Jade" carrying an even bigger stick. Taken at my parents' old house in Chattanooga, Autumn 20005 (?).
Sign on one of those throw-at-a-target game booths at the July 4th, 2009 celebration on the courthouse lawn in Dunlap, Tennessee. The prizes included a gun, a haircut and color, or an oil change.
Home run scored during a Rangers v. Braves baseball game, summer 2008. Arlington, Texas.
Armadillo in our campsite at Manatee Springs State Park, Florida, April 2005. I know these critters are destructive, but they are so cute!
My first "sighting" of a UFO Peach. Ok, that was a bad pun. But aren't they adorable? Taken at some small town grocery store some time during peach season this year.
Giant snowflakes and me in my pajamas. If you enlarge this picture you can see my pup Dodge in the doorway, eyes huge and glowing green from the flash. He looks like an alien. Taken in front of our house in Knoxville, Tennessee in January 2005.
I hope you've enjoyed my crappy pictures :)
