    Default Summer Pics

    Since LokiV indicated interest -

    This is what my "outside world" currently consists of - Part 1 and Part 2. Or, rather, believe it or not, it's a limited sampling. There are other aspects, too, which I have not photographed (yet). But this should give you an idea at least. Since it began paining me to whittle it down past the point where it is, I'm taking my cue from Cracka and linking you to an album instead of attempting to post them all here. There's a lot, so don't feel you have to look through it all.

    I'll probably add to or edit this album as I have time and as I take more pictures. (Right now the quality of some of the jpegs is a bit below my standards, so I apologize for that to anyone who cares.)

    Very nice topic!

    I'll start with some pics of my travels to the mountains-hills nearby. It's something I do biweekly, however often the pics are not as good on jpg as they look on my camera.

    That's the small city where my girlfriend lives


    That's still the small city, but now I am observing it from the mountains that are visible on the background of the preceeding pic:

    Were those pics taken with a camera phone FDG? If not there's an issue with your cam you may wanna figure out. If it's a camera phone that would explain it.


    How come I'm never just out in the woods and able to catch stuff like this...lol



    This child doesn't have the kinda fear I've seen in some kids when riding on a horse, it's quite adorable.


    good catch.


    lol, this one reminds me of what you were speaking of when you said you just start taking random pics of stuff instead of the people...lol.


    LOL @ the guy in black's face...hahahahaha

    Maybe you don't spend enough time in the woods? Although, this was at the beginning of the summer, by the barn and before the horses had arrived and scared the deer to other grazing grounds. I haven't seen a deer for several weeks.

    I thought it was cute because the saddle was bigger than she was.

    Yeah... I just can't help it. The combination of something that catches my eye (which happens often) and a digital SLR in hand is irresistible. The only thing that holds me back is a lack of time.

    To me, he looked more like a fish with limbs. Or a tadpole-alligator.

    Hmm, she's wielding a pocket knife and a hammer... Gotta be Se. Probably some Beta ST, maybe SLE?

    Edit: Look at how she's about to bend that pocketknife to her will! Or against her will. But she's going to bend it that's for sure. Look at how she has terrified the cameraperson so much that the camera can't even meet her eyes, lest the camera be sledged next! Oh the Se interplay going on there!

    I was just thinking about what vibe she was giving before I read this post, lol.

    My first thought was ISFp, then I though INFp might be feasible too.

    The Two Gentlemen of Verona, by Shakespeare

    The local actors' ensemble puts on two Shakespeare plays per summer, free of charge to the public and held in various parks. I went to one of them this last weekend.



    Lady Julia, waxing eloquent and emotional over a love note from Proteus




    Lady Sylvia, flirting with Valentine, and Valentine's servant watching while making clever commentary




    Lovers Julia and the false Proteus say farewell




    A servant, Luance, and his hard-hearted dog, Crab




    Valentine courting Sylvia, with jealous suitor Thurio in the background




    Valentine and Proteus discussing Sylvia and Julia




    Proteus informing Valentine of his banishment and counseling him to leave




    Duplicitous conspiring for the heart of Sylvia between Thurio, Proteus, and Sylvia's father, the Duke of Milan




    Valentine receiving counsel from his servant, Speed




    Attacked by outlaws and forced to be their leader!




    Happy ending


    Here's a link to more pictures.

    As Cracka has mentioned before, photobucket does terrible things to the quality of pictures so, like him, I promise that the originals are nicer to look at (in terms of image quality).

    Perhaps in the process of priming it. Some putty to smooth over bumps, nail holes, etc.

    Or,

    She's a new age peanut butter painter.

    In reality, cracka and UDP are correct. But, I agree, it has a sense of... story. That's why I chose the picture for the album.
