this feels like a polaroid.
I dunno…when I say “downtown self storage” it’s my polite way of tellin’ somebody to shove it up their ass.
But that’s just dainty me…
Worlds are colliding.
look at all the purty colors…..
Digital cameras: Letting perverts everywhere throw out the Polaroids!
Bucky, as is so often the case, you said what we all were thinking. (Actually, that’s hardly ever the case. Usually we’re all WTF?)
Lovely atmospheric photo!
is this morning or evening? tell me
ok evening, facing west, i get it, stop now
Susie, sometimes my brain patterns imitate those of a normal human.
Most of the time, though, they dance to their own house mix of latin jazz and dirty garage rock. Even I say WTF to my thoughts all the time…
I love that sky.
It reminds me of that line in the Elizabeth Bishop poem “Twelfth Morning” that goes “Is perspective dozing?” I think it’s because the buildings are so flat and black, silhoutted against the sky; you can TELL there’s some fancy perspective going on, but at the same time, it’s almost muffled by the darkness of the shape of the building.
Uh, I’m going to stop playing mediocre-art-critic-crossed-with-earnest-English-major now. I just liked the fact that the line jumped into my head when I saw this.
Lovely sunset, considering you don’t have that beautiful lurid smog red.
Heather must have slept in this morning if I managed to get up, make coffee, wait for the girl to get off the computer and still manage to be first.
I thought the comments were closed until I saw the comment box.
Glad to see they are not closed.
and I agree…looks polaroidish (is that word?)
Hi everyone…I’d like to ask something of you all. In response to all the critiscism Dooce has taken (which resulted in comments being closed etc etc) and especially her battle with depression I think it would be nice if we Doocelings (ands I mean fans of hers, not the people who want to bitch) did something for her.
I would like to put a little book together, which people can contribute to with a page containing their ‘thank you’s', photo, favourite comments, something like that – and we can have it sent off to her. *Anyone interested please see my post ‘Present for Dooce’ on the unofficial Dooce Forum:
Bucky and Susie: I now have two new things to add to my dilect:
“Downtown self storage and undercarriage” LMAO!!!
I think that’s the best photo yet. Though I love Chuck Fridays.
I love that hint of lavendar in the clouds. subtle.
heather, you rawk my socks.
I like the ever so cryptic “downtown self storage”.
For some reason the sky makes me think of the summer. Can’t wait.
OH HAY LOOK IM IN THE FIRST 50! WOO!
That’d make a great desktop background…
By the way Greenthumb, I very much enjoyed your story today… I think I would have run away afraid too!! Who wouldn’t?
i love your photos. i’m thinking if only i had a D70, i would automatically become a better photographer.
and then i remember, “oh yeah. it takes talent, too.”
do you get paid by Nikon to advertise that you take photos each day with a D70?
because you SO should get paid. i wonder how many people have bought one just because YOU have one???
I didn’t know a self-storage building could look so pretty. I want to eat those cotton candy clouds.
greenthumb, I don’t see that lavendar in the sky you reported (#45)…note to self: must….clean…monitor…
Or is it that we all have lavender on the brain after yesterday’s booty full (derviationfrom “booty flies,” natch) post about the power of Walmart lotion and sense memory?
I’m on my way out to take pictures of our Bookmobile.
Is it just me, or does the picture make anyone think of their toilet? You know, Crane == bathroom fixtures? Could be related to the downtown self storage bit, I guess.
Bookmobile…ah fond memories
Doocelings, take a look at http://dooce.migrantroo.com/viewtopic.php?t=40
I have a plan!
I went downtown, last night.
Thanks Leafgirl77. Be afraid, be very afraid….
Sherri…give that monitor a good scrub…it’s there…really…I can see it.
Oh, yeah yeah yeah!
The Bookmobile! Woe to those who didn’t experience the Bookmobile. For painfully shy girls such as myself, it was a gift from God!
that story about the lotion is beautiful, heather. i teared up which is nothing new cause i do most of the time you post one of your posts about leta or jon that are so full of love [/cheese] but it’s true. and now i’m going home..
love the sky in the west. love it.
it’s what i miss most about arizona.
well, that and easy college girls.
That’s beautiful. I’m glad I’m not the only one who squinted because they HAD to know what the ‘downtown self storage’ sign said…
Woot! How beautiful is that picture? Great colours.
Jimbo, that’s what makes you Mighty.
Easy college girls were great. Now it’s those easy blogging girls who rock …
OK, tell me if it’s poor etiquette to ask, but….
What software do people use to fix up/manipulate, etc, etc, their pictures once they’re on the computer?
I checked out Adobe Photoshop yesterday and the one I was looking at was $650CDN. Is this what I should be looking at or is this way more than I need?
Once again, if this is not the place to ask, just let me know and I’ll let it go!!
Leafgirl, I bought Photoshop Elements which is much cheaper than Photoshop (around $85 or so). Check it out; it might have everything you need.
I love Crane papers…call me snooty, but there’s nothing like some smooth, perfect Crane stationery for writing private lil’ notes of sincerity
Gorgeous! You and Jon and so gifted I’m jealous.
From the little icon on the sidebar I thought it was going to be a picture of a scrabble board. Even though it’s not, still a cool picture.
Leafgirl. I have Photo Impact. It’s easy to use and IMHO, just as good as photoshop. But eveyrone that is a photoshop person says, “NUH-UH!” so I must be wrong. I have had PI for about 2 years and I love it. I use it to crop and lighten. Shaun uses it to turn my mother into pope idol though. It works for lots of stuff.
