Playground Art

An elementary school (Capitol Hill) has for several years adorned their playground fence with plywood cutouts of fish. Each student paints their fish their fanciful colors. I haven’t researched the intent, but I suspect it is a respect the habitat/fish effort. There are several hundred fish hanging about the cyclone fence line.

Out the Back Door: Forgotten

Seedy, blue collar bar: It was a warm night. The air conditioning was not working. The front and back doors were propped open seeking some kind of breeze. I checked out the back door and to me it appeared the area wasn’t visited much anymore. I like the forgotten, over taken, eroding, rustic spots especially when they are right out the back door from the struggling to stay in business present.

Macro Lens: A Brick & A Chunk of Wood

photography-stimulator-green pupa-callibaetis-wine stone-SwittersBI had some time the other day to take some macro shots of some patterns I had tied some time ago. I wasn’t home with the usual setup. I set up on a dusty table and snapped away. The shots were blurry. I found myself hunched over looking into the camera while looking over the top of my glasses and nothing ever looked crisp. We are so dependent on our eyesight. Now it seems like adjust the lens and hope for the best. Kind of like it always it…but more so now. The fly patterns shown are: Stimulator (UL), Green Caddis Pupa (UR), Little Brown Stone (LL), Callibaetis Mayfly Nymph (LR).
