Some days nothing seems to make any sense.
Today is October 25 – 6 days before Halloween here in the USA. Stopping at the grocery store after my dentist appointment, I saw the expected display of Halloween candies and pumpkins – but just beyond it was a display of Christmas Trees! Really? And whatever happened to Thanksgiving?
There wasn’t enough time left in the day to go to the park, so I did my best to find fall foliage outside the grocery store:
I think I did pretty well, don’t you?
But I still don’t understand why some of my photos get more attention than others. For example, here’s one I took on my way home recently:
It’s a crappy photo, taken through a dirty windshield on an overcast day with a cheap camera – yet, once I posted it, it became my #1 “liked” photo on YouPic. I don’t get it. These are much better (in my opinion) but weren’t as popular:
It doesn’t help my confusion when I try to participate in Flickr’s theme of the week. Last week it was arches. It was rainy and cold, and I didn’t want to go out. Sure I could have gone to the Golden Arches, but the nearest McD is on busy Union Road and I’ve already had my car accident for the year, thank you very much. The best I could do was this photo from inside my own home:
I think it’s an interesting photo, at least. I like the little bit of blue-gray at the back. But no one else liked it. Go figure.
Puppy Cody doesn’t understand it all, either, and she’s seriously tired of me taking flash photos of her:
Guess Cody and I both need a nap after all of that. Happy Weekend, Everyone.
