Tonight I went to Home Run Burgers to get something for June and I to eat. Not only do they make a pretty good hamburger, but it’s the only place I know of here where I can get a fried egg on my burger. I just need to coach them to add beetroot and grilled pineapple rings to their menu, and I can get close to a “hamburger with the lot” from home. (Although nothing will ever match a true hamburger with the lot from an Aussie fish ‘n ‘chip shop!)
This how the table on our back porch looks at the moment. No-one would ever guess that my wife is gardener, would they?
During my desk-bound days especially, I love seeing this magnolia tree right outside of my office window. But tonight as I was getting into my car and looking back at the building, I realized there is something to be said for finally seeing from the outside too! 🙂
When I got home from work tonight, I noticed some unusual vegetables on the countertop in the kitchen. They were slender, purple and white in color with a green stalk on the end. I asked June about them and she explained that they were Asian eggplants. I picked one up and the first thing that struck me was that the stalk looked a bit like a duck’s head. Bingo — this had to be today’s photo!
On the way home from work tonight I returned to the manhole cover I shot a couple of weeks ago because I remember that the center of it was interesting enough to warrant it’s own shot, and the receding light looked really good too, The center has the word “sewer” running both horizontally and vertically, intersecting at the “w.” I thought that would be the end of the shot, but after playing around with some apps, I came up with this version. It’s a bit more abstract and I liked better than the straight shot, so that’s one that made it to the blog.
With these long workdays, I’m increasingly finding that I need to find photographic subjects in and around the office in order to get a photo done each day. And today was no exception. So ladies and gentleman, I present a study of the drinking water fountain (complete with some mineral deposit build-up around the nozzle)!
Just like yesterday, we had several pop-up thunderstorms in the area today. I was just heading into the grocery store this afternoon when a torrential downpour started, so I just bided my time in the car for a few minutes until it eased up. When I got out of the car I noticed the water beading on the roof, and thought…you know, that could be my photo of the day. And by golly, that’s how it turned out!
