We have sloughs in my area. They collect and redirect the rain, storing some of it for the water treatment plant, and sending the rest away from our homes.
This is a short walk from my house, but my HTC Thunderbolt had a psychotic break. I had to stop, take the poor thing to the smart phone hospital and have the battery taken out and put back in.
That's all. Now I know. Now, I know.
But I did score a cool universal charger that charges everything that needs charging. The charger is charging right now.
It is tiny enough to stay in my purse.
Here is the gruesome detail of my little smartphone's nervous breakdown just when we got the clouds and rain that I have been waiting for! Those who are sensitive to such things should scroll past it quickly!
This twig was not touched or moved. In fact I went off to get the camera fixed and to take other pictures for a couple of hours and came back to take this. It was still there!
This gate just grabbed me eye. My psychotic camera actually captured a lot of color on the first try, but this is after the camera valium kicked in.
I am not a photographer. Those people have different brains that do different ways of composing. I will only shoot what I see with my two eyes and only allow cropping because the picture is already composed in my mind.
If it's not in the scene, I can make it there. If it should be gone from the scene, I can make it gone.
Photography is too difficult for me brain.
