For the World is Full of Beauty and I Have It on Film

Did you know that if your hand is in the wrong position on the keyboard, you’ll type “die” instead of “for”? Not the way to start a Sunday blog post, is it? “Die rgw Qieks ua Dykk id VwYRT bs U GCW UR IB DUKN.” It’s almost Klingon.

After a long dry spell, due no doubt to my focus on my other project, I had two link-worthy posts this past week. Mike linked to “Inner Map to Paradise Found” and Beth linked to “How the Hollywood Writers’ Strike Can Help Your Blog.” Thanks!

Last Sunday, I mentioned that earlier that week, Mike had tagged me with the PhotoShow – 100 Meters Meme. The object of the meme is to post four or more photos of things you see within 100 meters of your home. For those of us still using standard units, that would be about 328 feet and 1 inch. The PhotoShow – 100 meters meme was started by Andy Bailey with the assistance of Vegan Momma and Lalla-Mira.

Here are my four photos:

Squirrel 072

First, a squirrel on a maple tree running off with a partially eaten black walnut.

Birds Nest 163

Second, a bird’s nest in a dogwood tree in winter.

Iris 173

Third, an iris flower.

Sunset 008

Fourth, sunset, I think right before or after a thunderstorm. One of the presidential candidates may have been in town too, or something.

Now, I’ll just copy and paste from Mike (so this may look familiar), but change “My Tags” to my tags. ;-)

My favorite picture is the first one. That squirrel is so adorable!
Once again, I am jealous of all the nature surrounding you. All I see around id buildings. Sigh!

[I'll add you to my post right away!]

My favorite squirrel image is one I don’t have. A few years ago while out walking (without my camera) on Easter, I saw a squirrel trying to carry a plastic Easter egg up a tree. It could get its mouth around it, but it couldn’t hold on to it well enough to get it up the tree. But, the squirrel kept trying!

Back when I was a smoker (many many years ago) I used to sit out on the front stoop and watch the squirrels play in the trees. They were actually quite amusing and noisy with all their screeching and carrying on.

Creative meme idea too…

OMG! Finally! a Photographic tag! :D

I gladly accept! Whew.. i don’t have to write anything clever.

btw:“Die rgw Qieks ua Dykk id VwYRT bs U GCW UR IB DUKN.” Completely zapped my inner geek with a gigawatt of current! Immediately I started thinking of writing some encryption code based on 1 character to the left transformation, BEFORE applying hex transformation AFTER obfuscating double letters and punctuation. Uncrackable I SAY!

Very cool DCR, now this should be different! I should have time to take some pics this weekend, but I don’t know if they’ll be as nice as yours :)
