Art comes from our guts....

I am horrible as a "group member"...very undependable...
Interests
Yesterday evening gave us summer solstice and a strawberry moon.
Considering it had been a while since I made any artistic photographs, I decided to venture out for some image making.
It was still very warm outside....about 30-32 C (90 deg F). The gnats and mosquitoes were out in force. Bullfrogs were singing for mates, and the lake was rife with swallows.

The moonrise was expected at 8:14 pm. For me, that is late. I get up at 4-4;30, so usually, I'm thinking about sleep at 8:00.
But I was not deterred! I had slathered industrial strength repellent over my extremities to ward off the bugs. It worked for a half hour or so. Those were the sissy mosquitoes. Weak, lazy, unwilling to suffer a little for their meal. "This repellent is great stuff!", was my thought. Then the sissy bugs, gave way to the big brother bugs. Bullies, relentless, taunting..."hey nice touch that stuff you added for flavor...ha ha!" Suck suck suck. 

In between making images, I was locating and smashing these boogers. Red splats of (somebody's) blood stained my legs and arms. Carnage.



After about an hour of shooting, the moon began to rise. It stayed low on the horizon and was very orange and beautiful. 
I managed a few and got outta there.

I was just too tired to even upload the images for review.

More on that later

Peace. Have a good day!
