The last one…

office-plant-lb

This is the last of the photos from the office.  I accidentally deleted about a week’s worth of posts so I’m recreating them.  Can’t remember what I wrote, though, but at least the photo is here.

I should mention that this is some more fake stuff from the office.  Only one more office photo to go.  Looks like I’m going to have to get my camera out again during lunch to see what I can see.

I’m glad it’s Saturday

salmon-LB

Another office photo, this time of a mounted salmon. 

Apparently resident killer whales in the Pacific Northwest are being poisoned by chinook salmon that have high concentrations of DDTs and PCBs that were injested by the salmon during their time at sea.  You can read all about it here.   

I need some happy thoughts.  Anybody have any they’d like to share?

Texture

lamp-base

Don’t you love texture?  I do!  There isn’t anything really exciting about this shot – just a lamp base at work, but I really like the texture of it. 

Happy Friday, everyone!  TGIF!!

Shades of Gray…Grey

office-weeds

I’ve been playing with the title for a little while.  Back and forth, back and forth. Grey.  Gray.  Grey.  Gray.  I can’t decide which spelling I like better.  Both are correct.  Why does the English language do this?  I like things to be black and white.  Shades of grey…gray…whichever, are confusing.  Although, if this was strictly a black and white world it would be pretty dang boring.

Which is your preferred spelling?
