Muse-ings

It’s not even eight-thirty in the morning and I’ve already shot several photos and posted them to my PAD. And just yesterday I was thinking I was out of juice and vision, ready for a prolonged break. Well, it could be the winter weather that blew through with cinematic cloudy skies last night and the quality of the crystalline blue behind them. Or it could just be that I made time on my drive in to work. Whichever, it feels good and I feel ready for the day.

Too bad this muse thing isn’t a bit more consistent, eh?

4th of July Weekend

Aside from an obligatory wedding tomorrow afternoon, I’m looking forward to a long and quiet weekend. I’ve taken this monday off, extending my weekend to four days. Too bad I won’t be at the beach. Ah, well, at least there’s iced tea and the air conditioning.

We’ll probably hunker down and try to keep the excitement to a minimum. The dogs will be reacting to all the fireworks and the neighborhood’s requisite piccolo petes. Sophie will need to be reassured, Jack usually does fine, not sure how Teddy will react.

Last night we had an odd situation. One of the neighbor kids tossed a baby doll over the fence and apparently caught Teddy off guard. He was quite perturbed by the sudden arrival of something strange that looks like a human landing in his yard. He would just hunker down and very cautiously approach, slinky style, not wanting to get too close, with a deep rumble in his chest. It was just past dusk and that made it all the weirder, Cathi called me to look at the spectacle… pretty funny…

I stopped on H street on my way in to work this morning, wandering with my camera between the Padre hotel and the Nile theater, taking pictures. The sky was dusted with clouds and looked like a painting. I shot a few pictures and posted this in my PAD (Photo-A-Day) gallery.

I was pretty happy with this:
