First Day of October!

This mornings "Art A Day" titled "Ghosts"

Morning all!
New music player mix today...
A collection of fifties tunes....

Happy October 1st!

So a quick post.
Then out the door to work on several projects.
I'm back with my "Art A Day" & now "Photo a Day".
It might seem tedious to you.
The reason behind it?
Is because if I don't do it?
I loose it.
Its easy for me to fall off the artistic wagon at times.
Make sense?
Life is busy.
So many things get thrown at ya.
I went several weeks without taking a photo.
Bad.

This morning's "Photo A Day"

Its so easy to sit and waste a few hours watching too many reality shows.

I can do that when my legs don't work anymore.
In my retirement home, or trailer.
Or wherever someone decides to put me.
I can spend hours watching old TV shows
and eating soft foods in my older days.

But I won't always be able to go out and capture life with my camera.
In my retirement trailer I hope to still
have a spark of romance and adventure.
But I might be trapped in my own head by that time.
It runs in the family.
In my bloodline they live long but crazy.
Also good hair.
My three step brothers not so lucky.
They will be sane ... but bald.

October 1st -Railroad Tracks

So anyway... my goal... a photo a day.
Does it need to be great?
No.
It just needs to be me... using my camera.
Learning new tricks... working on settings.... balance, light... etc.
I will also be doing my "Art A Day".
So here is today's photos.
Also my "Art a Day" project.
Took and combined them both.
Enjoy.
I will be back later.
A certain friend sent me something very cool in the mail.
Made my day! Can't wait to share it!

Talk soon.
-Mike
