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’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?

Feathered promises

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”

Duck, duck, goose

duck

This would be the duck.
A stuffed duck.
In my co-worker’s office.
That he shot.
That would be the duck that he shot, not the office.

He has two others on the wall, in addition to a pheasant.  I feel sorry for the birds – they were such beautiful creatures and they deserved better.

Taken with the Lensbaby – love that thing!!

Beautiful Flower

Beautiful Flower

This is a song for every girl who’s
Ever been through something she thought she couldn’t make it through
I sing these words because
I was that girl too
Wanting something better than this
But who do I turn to

Now we’re moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives

‘Cause you’re beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind

There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient

This is a song for every girl who
Feels like she is not special
‘Cause she don’t look like a supermodel Coke bottle
The next time the radio tells you to shake your moneymaker
Shake your head and tell them, tell them you’re a leader

Now we’re moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives

‘Cause you’re beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind

There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient

Yeah, you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient

Yeah, you, this song is for you
Yeah, you, this song is for you
Yeah, you, this song is for you
Yeah, you, yeah, you
You are brilliant

— India Arie

Curly Ques

curly-ques

I wasn’t able to get a shot of the farm thingie yesterday (too many people) so today we have a shot of these curly que thingies.  Yes, more thingies.  Thingies of a different type and class than the farm thingie, but thingies none the less.

Snow Fence

snowy-fence

When I stepped out on the deck the other morning to play catch with my B-boys, I noticed the snow that was stuck to the fence.  After playing catch (can’t put Buster off for more than a minute), I went back inside and grabbed my camera before the snow melted off.  I took some images with my regular lens then switched to the Lensbaby.  I love the feeling that the Lensbaby gives this image – the feeling of movement, even when there wasn’t any.   Otherwise it’s just a fence with some snow stuck on it.
