Day 365

On the last day of the year I went out early to catch the sunrise.  I got the Moon first! This is with my 75-300L lens, at 300mm. And this is that same lens at 300mm with a 2x teleconverter, making it a 600mm.  This one is resized to fit my 1440×960 format I mostly use […]

Day 364

Somebody got a selfie stick for Christmas… We had to check it our. One of the churches in town went a little crazy…it is all set to music and lights are nuts!  A job well done! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 363: Christmas, Part 4!

Later that evening came the traditional “crackers”!  A tube with pyrotechnics has each end pulled, and it results in a “Bang!” (Two photo panorama!) The winner gets a bad joke, tissue crown and a toy.  In this case a plastic(?) diamond! Crowns and Quidditch in the kitchen! Prime rib!  A little rare, but very good! […]

Day 362: Christmas, Part 3!

I got ‘Stache a great little locomotive and train car… …the stacking pieces come off! My Sister gave the Dailylife Daughter #1 this nice quilt she had made. Then ‘Stache found the best toy yet… “We lays it out like this.” “Then we give a big jump!” “And…pop pop pop!” “Ta Da!” I gave Lugnut […]

Day 361: Christmas, Part 3!

Lugwrench gets… …and… …looses… …a present! ‘Stache really gets into this present stuff. He shreds with the best of them! *** “Oh Boy!  Headbanger!” Re-carpeting in crape paper.     “What’s that?” “It’s a cow.” “Oh Boy!  I got a cow!” “I got a cow!” “Look, Nana!  I got a cow!” “Nana, what’s a cow?” […]

Day 360: Christmas, Part 2!

The calm before the storm…watching NBC morning anchors giving each other gifts… ‘Stache showing off a present… …before he even gets his hat off… Lugnut being watched by the creepy gal on the TV! ‘Stache’s train from Cars/Planes World. Two grandkids and a head starting to sort through it all. The three of them looking […]

Day 359: Christmas, Part 1!

More on the festivities and fun, but first: the First Christmas full Moon since 1977! Hey, wait a minute…that is a leaf in our Mountain Ash tree…Here it is! Not to worry, that shadow at the top isn’t a giant alien spaceship or a storm from.  I was shooting through the fairly bare branches of […]

Day 358: Christmas Eve!

The usual family feast for Christmas Eve…fondue, shrimp, salmon, leafs (thanks to my Brother!), garlic bread, turkey summer sausage, little bbq’d smokies, meatballs, ‘shrooms,crackers, homemade cheeseball…the usual! After the dinner comes cleanup. Of course, ‘Stache is big helper! He is still a little limited on endurance, though… And of course, the Tree! !!! Here is […]

Five photos from a recent trip down by the River. A Mallard. Mr. and Mrs. Mallard in flight. A Common Goldeneye. I think the road does…something…here… A centerpiece for your screen. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
