A Photo a Day Keeps the Boredom Away

I have lots of opinions and I like to write. But often there's just no time to do it. I also love taking photos, and I have 25,000 images sitting right here on my computer hard drive. So, I decided that even on days when I don't have time to cogently present my opinions, I probably DO have time to post an interesting photo and offer a caption or an observation or two about it.

So I thought I'd give it a try--especially since my slogan is, well, just read it above. We all should be as happy as kings, and as grateful as our hearts have
room for. And certainly, I can share with you a number of things. I hope you'll leave your comments, even just a few words.

Above, we have one of the critics of my photography, reaching for his favorite refreshment. He is wise. He is sanguine. He sees the world from a unique perspective.

To the right is a strange fish (those are his real colors) in the Seattle Aquarium. He has no tail fins. He's ugly. What is his name???


  1. !!!!!!!!! I love you !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Mink, no, "I love you" is not the fish's name.
    However, it's a pretty good sentiment--requited!

  3. Suspense is killing me. What IS that ugly (but obviously intelligent) fish's name?

  4. I do not know the name of this fish. Let's just call him..."Fred."

  5. I think this is one of those poisonous puffer fish-those fish that blow up to scare away predators who annoy them (hey!wouldn't it be fun if we humans could do that? POOFing would surely elicit peals of laughter and possibly defuse any tense situations, no?) - and really, it's ugliness is almost beautiful, in a kind of uniquely creative sense ... well, I'm sure its mother would think so anyway ...
