Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #170: Street Art

When my Hubby told me he wanted to drive up to the town of North Bend (Washington), in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, I jumped at the chance.  He had told me about an event going on that involved various blues bands playing at assorted cafes in town-you would buy one ticket for the …

Maybe some Americans aren’t the Sheep we think they are-fighting vaccination mandates Updated October 11

Everyone should be aware of the two huge issues in the news lately.  One is the cascade of "worker shortages" everywhere, from local bars and restaurants to big airlines, delivery services, and trucking lines.  Everyone is having trouble hiring enough workers, now that things are opening up everywhere after government closures of businesses due to …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #169: The Ordinary

I learned a long time ago to pay attention to even the ordinary objects around me, which can become extraordinary if you photograph them the right way.  Even a russet potato looks interesting, with the brightly-colored background. When Hubby and I were in Michigan last month, we had meals in a big dining-room, with many …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #165: Going Wide (with pride)

I love taking photos of landscapes, since I normally notice the wide view.  I don't have a wide-angle lens for my normal point-and-shoot camera, nor my iPhone, which I have been using for most photography for the past two years.  I used to pooh-pooh all the people who are constantly using their phones to capture …

In 2020, the Washington State Fair in Puyallup (pronounced Pew-al-up), was canceled, like everything else, due to Covid.  This year, the Almighty Dictatorial Health Nazis in Olympia and Tacoma "let" it go on.  Albeit with a Mask Mandate, requiring that all fair-goers wear a mask, indoors and out, regardless of vaccination status.  What did that …

Happy Birthday to Harry Potter

Since it's still July 31 where I live, it's not too late for me to wish Harry Potter, born on July 31, 1980, a very Happy Birthday.  Over on the Wizarding World Web site, and in the app, there was a very good story ranking all of Harry's birthdays.  Of course, his eleventh birthday was …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #151: From large to small, in color(s)

My favorite color is red.  I drive a red car.  I have a red leather folio for taking notes in meetings, a red leather case for my pens and reading glasses, and a red "accordion" wallet, all from Levenger.  On our recent vacation in Nashville, red things were abundant around us.  From the Waterfront Park …

Continuing post: My Mask Journey after new CDC “guidelines” approved vaccinated people ditching the face-diaper

It should be common knowledge now, that the Almighty CDC last week issued new "guidance" (treated as LAW by most governments); allowing those who have been fully vaccinated against the Wuhan Coronavirus to quit wearing masks everywhere (except for public transportation and medical facilities).   And it should also be common knowledge that the Dictator …
