Bumps and Humps

The first snow has arrived in Buffalo, New York. I am not ready for it.

Therefore, I am not going to write about it (ignore the fact that I just did, please), nor am I going to take any photos of it.  Winter needs to wait a bit – after all, between my camera problems and all the recent rain, I never even got a chance to take those wonderful fall pictures.

All I could manage in the last week or so were pictures of …

Potholes:

Yes, everyone’s favorite part of driving in northern climes.  I won’t say why I was driving around during a rainy lunch hour taking pothole photos, but I was.  Unfortunately, most of our potholes were “fixed” during the spring and early summer, and what remains are the “repairs”:

Lovely, isn’t it?  I drive that road every day and there’s no way to avoid that section.  Of course, on other days, I manage not to be standing on the edge of the road with a camera so that I can get drenched by passing motorists:

And of course, I somehow parked my car in the exact spot where I would have to step into several inches of water both getting out of and back into my vehicle:

Thankfully, my office is in a back corner of the building, and I was able to dry off some before having to face other people.

So, back to today.  Despite the snow (which I am not going to write about), I must venture out for my Remicade infusion – which is now every 6 weeks instead of every 8 weeks because the effects haven’t been lasting as long as they should.  At $4,000 a pop (pardon the pun), I was amazed that the insurance company approved the shorter treatment interval.

(And thank heavens for the 4-day work week so I don’t have to beg my employer for a day off every 6 weeks.)

Later this afternoon, I will be pretty much out of it so may or may not respond to all those comments you’ll be leaving.  Just be patient.  I will get to them.

What are your plans for the weekend?  If you’re single (or not, and simply oblivious to your partner’s feelings), you may decide to try “speed dating.”  That didn’t exist when I was young, and I’m inclined to think it’s a good way to meet a lot of prospective mates in a very short time.

However, I’m not overly fond of the newest trend:

But then that’s not for me to decide, is it?

Happy Friday, folks.  Stay safe.

Is It the Camera or the Photographer?

Or maybe it’s just timing.

I took this little gem with my really old Kyocera flip phone, through a car window on a rainy evening.  I call it “A Nation Weeps“.

Do you like?

(Yes, I know the period is supposed to go inside the quotes, but I like it better this way, and it’s my blog.)

What do you think of my new photographer’s moniker?  I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my mom, and it just seems fitting.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Do not ‘firsake’ me !!!(゚ロ゚屮)屮

Being re-blogged or linked to is always an honor – but another blogger choosing one of my photos to use on her own site is priceless.

Happy Halloween, Everyone!

Spooky Update

I forgot to include this photo on my last post.  It was taken on the unpaved nature trail at Walton Woods Park.

Doesn’t that look like a face (or a decapitated head) near the bottom just left of the base of the tree?  I sure didn’t see any faces when I took that picture!

I think I’ll stay out of those woods until after Halloween.
