more with the bee theme

The original. Is that even a bee? It's awful small. Maybe a mutant bee? Maybe it's the kind of bee that has been burrowing into my ears at night. Wait, that's just from a dream. Sorry.

And its negative.

Okay, so I'm running out of photos, I fear. I hope I don't accidentally begin to post photos I've already posted because I'm now having to go back through older photos for material. I have a few more recent photos, but not many. My supply is definitely finite since I just started this photo gig in 2004. I'm not depleted yet, and I have a few recent photos yet, but I'll be lucky to make it to mid-August on new material.

And after the photos run out, then what? Dare I make a post without a photo? Is that allowed on my blog? I fear I may have to go that route. I think at that point begins my political commentary. And my restaurant reviews. And celebrity gossip (which I warn you now will focus on Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley and Cate Blanchett and Michelle Pfeiffer and the young Ingrid Bergman. Oh, and Winona Ryder. And, ahem, Johnny Depp.) And my fashion reviews. And my retelling of local county commission meetings. And my personal stories of my several alien abductions and how I tried to convince the aliens I'd be more than happy to individually select some individuals as my substitute.

I don't have time to go out and take a bunch of new ones. So be prepared to see a lot of ballet recital photos of my kids. And their birthday parties. And the kids in front of the Christmas tree. And me in the shower.

Did I just say that out loud? Drat it all, not again.

Thanks for the comments on my blog. I'm never sure whether I should post pictures, so it's nice to have some feedback.

You don't have time to go out and take more photos? But you do have time to write up lengthy posts (ie, fashion reviews? ;) without photos? I don't understand this. I always found that writing took more time... Either type of post, however, will be welcomed!

Oh, you're welcome. Of course you should post your photo's--they're very good. Quite.

Photos take no time to shoot IF you happen to have your camera at your ready when you encounter something visually interesting. That's true. But to go out in search for shots (as I sometimes do), well, that takes more time than writing a commentary. And especially so when I write a commentary to accompany my photos.

But thanks for welcoming both kinds of entries.

All it means is that it time to find some new places to visit so that you can take more photos.

I think I sense a B-T family convergence at Mt. Cheehaw

Examples: here.

Rumor has it that it might be fairly close to your undisclosed location (but nowhere near the Kroger). (Map)

first of all, cool technology. links and maps and all sorts of cool stuff.

second, i love your photos. they're lovely.

third, your proposed trip sounds great. should we have our respective business managers work out a deal?

Steven Taylor said...

Indeed, meguesses that the only way such a deal will be struck is if said business managers get involved.

Rumor has it that a Labor Day trip your way is in the works. Perhaps then we can plan a fall convergence.

And thanks (in re the photos).

Michael B said...

sounds fabulo-so.

More photos of you in the shower please! The masses have spoken and that's what we want.

Yes. That is precisely what I...err..WE want.
