Stalking Wilde-life in Havre de Grace –The iPhone series continues…

Oct 15, 2018

A two-fer this time – I'm really enjoying this. In the shot above, both Pam and her subject, Mycki Ebel, have just noticed that I was outside the window and turned to look at me. That was quick and easy – and adds a little variety to the series. I don't know what prompted me to start playing around with the posting titles for these – maybe it was the expresson in this shot. Another idea this shot gave me was to replace the thumbnail for the album on the Havre de Grace Street page with the center portion of this shot. After all, I have to be allowed a little fun.

Below is Carol Hooper posing. She sports a relaxed, if perhaps a little bored, pose while her early-stage portrait peeks out from the back side window of the SUV reflected in the window. Of curse one can always find neat little touches – like Pam's seat floating in air.

It occurs to me that I could make a slide show out of these and offer to let Pam play it at her showing next year – wish to heck I had started at the beginning. As it is, pretty soon these will overflow into a second album – they only hold a couple of dozen images each, max.


Reads Notes…

     Fishished my second reading of A Universe from Nothing by Lawrence k. Krauss. The second time went much smoother – maybe not quicker because I was reading very carefully. And I feel like I managed to hang in there a little better – convincing my self that I have something of a grasp on the principles, if not a great deal of the science behind them. The Afterward, by Richard Dawkins, brings home the importance of this work in adding a piece to the impossible puzzle-picture of the universe/world we inhabit.

Now I'm back to re-familiarizing myself with NOW, The Physics of Time by Richard A. Muller. Admittedly, the first time around, I had a very tenuous hold on the Now. Hence taking it on again second. Good times – but after this I think I'll relax with something a little less demanding.
