Best of 2013 - The Big Collection

Best of 2013

Big treat coming! My best photos of 2013. Sample:

Ancient Bristlecone Pine - Inyo NF - California
11,100 feet ASL

If you are a serious photographer and do serious printing and use Epson paper, check out the photo on the front of the 50-count "ULTRA PREMIUM PHOTO PAPER LUSTER."

I'll be posting more tomorrow!

Happy Holidays DU! (A photo holiday card)

Happy Holiday Photos for DU!

"Wilderness Fire Lookout Camp"

"The Road to East Butte"

Dandruff is sexy (I now tell myself) .. snow on ancient hills (a rant).

I have been fighting it for most of my adult life (I'm 65). I have spent thousands on cures, and my insurance has spent more.

My great dermatologist, who has a secondary specialty in pathology, prescribed a new shampoo on my visit last Monday. She was excited by the match. If she was, I was too! (BTW: she is 64 and looks not a year over 44, not that it matters). So she called in the Rx shampoo, Dr. Fountain-of-Youth.

I went to the pharmacy to pick up that Rx, and some B/P meds from another physician. The shampoo was not covered by insurance. It was $356 for six fluid motherfucking ounces. WTF? I mean, really, WTF?

Cosmetics. Vanity. Hold the phone, and cancel the order. Mother of my fucking dog! I'm not paying for that shit. Let the snow fall. And I love and will continue wearing black, all you Johnny Ca$h-loving motherfuckers!


A bit of Yeats for the House GOPers:

William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Route 66 Photo Essay (I'm in Gallup, NM, tonight - BIG FILES)

Don't eat no road kill at the Roadkill 66 Cafe

Burma Shave hell:

"Like a poem poorly written
We are verses out of rhythm,
Couplets out of rhyme .."

The BNSF (Burlington Northern - Santa Fe RR) bulls (cops) tag-teamed me for over 50 miles after I took these pics. I was doing many 180s on 66 to get back to certain photo ops (NOT RR THOUGH!).

Might go to Santa Fe , tomorrow. Big Porsche 356 meet there!

U.S. Presidential Line of Succession: #1 - VP Joe Biden (D-Sanity)

#2 - John Boehner (R-Drunk) He raves, he caves .. He drinks, he stinks .. He cries, he lies .. And he is #2 in the line of succession to the Presidency.

Good Lawd! Toyota of Bend (OR) has The Ed Show on waiting room TV!

Never seen MSNBC on in an auto dealership. People are watching it, too.
