Taco appears to be stumped

How to camouflage a taco

Have expressed this exact thought so many times...

...but never this beautifully.

The photographer was set in his ways. A traditionalist, he did not have any faith in digital cameras, no matter how many millions of pixels they were capable of producing today. To him, half the pleasure of photography was working in a darkroom bringing pictures manually to life. He disliked the immediacy of digital cameras—the way you could see a shot seconds after taking it. At heart photography should have a certain degree of mystery in it, something ineffable and elusive, which was why he liked being in a darkroom developing pictures. It was a hands- on process you could not measure or ever replicate exactly. The photograph slowly emerging in its chemical bath was like a woman undressing in front of you—slowly slowly everything was revealed."

Taco chillin' like a boss

Mom left today

...but we pre-celebrated her birthday six times, and introduced the grand-dog.

Late summer backyard plum harvest

The tree is in our neighbour's garden, but the branches bring the fruit to us over the fence.

Tonight is vanilla ice cream and as many of these as we can handle.
