I meant for the moth photo in the previous post to go up today, but I didn't think to schedule it so it went up right before I went down. I could have stayed up another 30 minutes and posted it right after midnight but I wanted to get into bed early, expecting to run today, not knowing that a storm would roll in and our run would be canceled.
I sat in my car with the engine idling, checking email before rolling down the drive. RUN CANCELED, the email read. I thought about running through my own neighborhood, but then I imagined getting struck by lightning and what that might feel like and having to fetch at least one shoe if it did happen. I think it's a given that at least one shoe, if not both, will fly off your feet if lightning strikes you.
I weighed the risk and pulled the key from the ignition. I decided to finish reading Wild instead. It would give me a feeling of accomplishment to finish something, a nice way to start my Friday. Now I am left with wondering what to read next. I'm in no hurry, something will turn up. I'll take this little lull as an opportunity to put in some Photoshop hours. I'm starting to accrue a collection of PS tutorials on YouTube so that I can apply some of the editing techniques to my photos.
I gathered up a few photos from Easter Sunday to share with you. Katina suggested we go to McKinney Falls and it was beautiful, the wildflowers had hit their mark and were everywhere. We took Beagle and Katina proved herself to be a dog handler extraordinaire, I didn't have to worry the hound tugging at me while I took a few photos.
Besides the moth, here are a few more photos that I came home with:
