The Last Gasp of Good Weather...

Here's a photo I thought I would share. I think I've got an 'eye' for a good photo. Obviously, I don't have great camera equipment, though. I guess I'll have to get a digital camera someday. I don't wanna do it during the Christmas season, though! I don't want to get stomped to death at Best-Buy or Wal-Mart anytime soon.

Anyway, this photo, to me, feels like a sort of "goodbye" to good weather before we Coeur d'Alenians have to face the onslaught of the winter season.

It was taken on October 10th of this year at about 5:30pm, and it looks southwest across CDA Lake. What you're seeing here is the very southwestern tip of Tubbs Hill as the sun is just about ready to bid adieu.

This is actually a "photo of a photo"; a picture which I photographed with my webcam. That "2nd generation"procedure gives the image a rather ghostly appearance.

Actually, we did pretty good this year, in the ol' weather department. We had a lot of great sunny days this fall. I'm not much of an "outdoors animal" anymore, but I love a good view, and it's cool to be able to capture it on camera. When I do that, I feel like I'm taking the view with me. A way of proving to myself, probably, that I do indeed exist.

I'll be back later to post some more stuff, never fear; but now I've gotta go out and read the paper (and, indeed "live" some of my life), so as to obtain some blog-ammunition, thereby tricking my readers into thinking that I actually know something about something...

Thank ya, Vickeb. Glad U like it. It's a crazy blog, but I have fun with it. Sometimes it's not fun and that's when I "grind it out". Other times I'll write what I think is a great post, and get no feedback. Then I "sluff" on a post (like the one you responded to) and get good feedback. Go figure!
