Instagram Dump #1

I don’t really trust other websites with my files, so I’m backing up my Instagram photos here. A lot of these are complete crap, but I was unable to decide on a methodology for determining which ones should stay or go, so I’m uploading them all.

a photograph of a cake covered with white icing

I made this cake for my birthday. It had to be a gluten-fee cake, because my brother, Alex, has celiac disease.

a photo of a banana sitting on a counter

I thought it was really weird just how straight this banana was.

a photo of a usb to ps/2 adapter attached to a ps/2 to midi adapter

It’s a USB to PS/2 adapter attached to a PS/2 to MIDI adapter. I couldn’t get anything to work when attached to this configuration.

a photo of the sign for the forty creek distillery

Fun Fact: I passed out on a tour of the Forty Creek Distillery, because I had been fed recalled beef the night before. At least I didn’t die of listeria!

a photo of a purple fleabane flower outside

This is fleabane. It doesn’t really keep fleas away.

a photo of a plastic dagger to go with a women's halloween costume

What’s the difference between a she-dagger and a he-dagger?

a photo of a watch with its chain draped into a wine glass

This is my first-ever arst-fartsy Instagram photo. DOESN’T IT SUCK?

a photo of some paint cans and yard tools on a deck

These are some crude, yet mystical, digging tools.

a photo of a silk flower, a toy pig and a pearl necklace

The pig really ties this whole composition together.

a photo of a bolt, sitting on a step, with rays of sunlight shining on it

I wonder where this bolt came from? Something probably has compromised structural integrity now.

a photo of an eight of cups tarot card

The Eight of Cup tarot card means that we’re all doomed. DOOMED!

a photo of a bunch of bags of naked barbies hanging in a thrift store

Who the Hell would want to buy a bunch of janky, old naked Barbies?

a photo of a box of president's choice bran flakes cereal

Yep. That sure is a box of bran flakes.

a photo of five different pairs of glasses lined up

I have owned a lot of different pairs of glasses in my life.

Why am I so blind?

a photo of a tree with its leaves turning orange for fall

Isn’t Autumn beautiful?

a photo of some cranberries withering on the bush during fall

We had this cranberry bush in our backyard my whole life and I have never tasted the berries. I’m not even sure if they’re the kind you can eat.

a photo of a light-up ceramic christmas tree

My mom found this Christmas tree thing at the dump. It think that it should have stayed there.

a photo of a "resurrect eggs" carton

I never opened this Resurrection Eggs thing, because the container was really grody-looking, but now I kinda wished that I had.

a photo of a brown toy car sitting on a brown boot

A brown car on a brown boot. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!

Well, that is all for now. There will be more later. Instagram doesn’t let you right-click save photos, so this has been a really annoying process.

The Last Flowers of Summer

Summer is almost over, so I decided to take some photos of the last flowers of the season.

A combination of allergies, high wind and LCD screen glare, meant that these photograph didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped. Ah, well.

Attack of the Isty Bitsy Spiders

About a month ago, I got up, in the morning, to walk the dog. The field we walked through was filled with hundreds of dew-covered spider webs.

I had to walk the dog through this.

Every single one of those white patches is a spider web.

You get a bit itchy just looking at it.

This guy mostly caught a bunch of water.


another photograph of a spider web covered in dew
Nobody was home in this web.

I thought that this one was very pretty.

The next day, all the webs were gone, or, maybe, it just seemed that way because there wasn’t as much dew to make them visible.

Yeah, so, I really need to get into the habit of posting my photographs right away, instead of waiting a month, or more.

Flickr Dump #8

Yay! This is the last flickr dump! It’s pictures 351 to 397. I’m a little upset that it’s not a nice, round number. Anyway, click a tumbnail for a larger version.

That’s all, folks! Well, actually, there were more photographs in my flickr account, but I didn’t think they were that interesting.

Flickr Dump #7

This is the second to last flickr dump. These are photos 301 to 350. Click for bigger.
