Wow. What happened to last week? Have you ever been so busy that you just bounce around like the silver ball in a pinball machine, just doing what is in front of you, and barely taking a moment to look up from your work? Then, when it’s all over, you wake up and realize you’ve briefly lost touch of who you are. Just about everything had taken a back seat to your work for the past week or so, and the non- work you had somehow been suppressed out of existence. Well that’s the week I just had. I woke up this morning and remembered the non-work me. The Dad, husband, photographer guy, and I had to wonder where the past week had gone. Actually, I had a great weekend last week. I spent it in a 100 year old cabin in the woods with a bunch of friends watching the snow fall at a furious pace. At the height of the storm, I laced ’em up as they say, and went for a long walk. Unfortunately, because of the week I just had, I still haven’t gotten the shots off my camera but I’ll share them with you as soon as I can.
Today’s picture is from the summer obviously, the tail end of what appears to be a pretty good season for these guys in the flower bed. I was drawn to their grizzled look. The bees had long since had their ways with these flowers, and had moved on to better prospects, and now they were left to be scorched by the late afternoon sun. Well past their prime, they all seemed to still be hanging in there, with an admirable never say die kind of attitude. I kind of liked that, and thought it was worthy of a picture.
