A week of miscellany 2


This is the second in a week-long series meant to clean out my backlog of un-posted and disconnected photos.

As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does all the heavy lifting in selecting the photos. And thank you sincerely for dropping by the Book of Bokeh. I would also like to invite you to visit my Book of Pain  poetry blog.

    • You’re not the first person to be fooled! Actually it is some type of bull…a specialty “heirloom” breed, I think, that I found at a local “living museum”…a village that recreates life in New England in the 1850’s. Personally my favorite shot from this series is the first one. I love the statement of the birthday balloon against the sky. Why, I don’t know, but still… 🙂

    • No, in fact it is a bull’s eye and I think I nailed the picture exactly. (Sorry, that’s an awful pun. 🙂 ) Number 6 is the side of a pine cone, in very, very close.

        • Thank you very much! To be honest, I am less ‘proud’ of my shots and more ‘constantly amazed’ that some come out as good as they do. Thank heavens Mr. Cannon does all the hard work…all I have to do is hit the little button on the side of the camera! 🙂

    • Thank you! In fact, if memory serves me correctly, it is the eye of a bull, but I agree, I was lucky to catch something else there, wasn’t I?

        • Hey, that’s no bull! But it is, too. Is that a good example of a koan? 🙂

          It is some exotic, or perhaps heirloom breed. I took it at a ‘living museum’, a place where everything is from, and all the actors dress as, specific characters from the mid-1850”s in New England.

    • Thank you so much! I know that they are all awfully eclectic, but lacking any cohesion that is about what they have going for them! 🙂
