I like the fisheye lens from Olloclip.  

These pictures were taken by me at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum with the Hipstamatic app, and the Olloclip fisheye lens on an iPhone 6.

Shiny Rocks v.6

9 Comments

A week late, but here it is, the latest edition of Shiny Rocks.

Quotes

Peace in the brain. It is a very good thing. ~ Joanna DeVoe The KICKASS WITCH : Putting The “K” In Magick
The greenest building is the one that is already built. ~ Adaptive Reuse

 Web sites

For $5 a month E-junkie will help you sell your stuff.
Do you have expertise to sell?  Clarify will help you do that.
Web We Want is a global movement to defend, claim and change the future of the Web.  Connect, share and take action with others to build the Web we want.

Thoughts I thunk

Escape the cult of average.

Change the lens and change reality.

The magic sword of truth.
The odd thing is we all seem to have our own truth.

People have made a lot of rules.  Rules aren’t bad.  They help in a lot of cases.  But life isn’t about rules.  Learn and teach critical thinking and what is right in a situation becomes easier to find.

Relax, take a deep breath.  Get ready.  It’s going to change.

Interesting idea

Positive Psychology  Positive psychologists seek “to find and nurture genius and talent” and “to make normal life more fulfilling”, rather than merely treating mental illness. Positive psychology is primarily concerned with using the psychological theory, research and intervention techniques to understand the positive, adaptive, creative and emotionally fulfilling aspects of human behavior.

 Double exposure

Photographic evidence that a child can be in two places at once.

Background  

People who can see me in non-cyber space know I love shiny rocks.  I pick them up.  I carry them with me. I randomly give them away. I accept them as gifts. They sit on windowsills and tables.
This is the fourth in a series of biweekly features about sharing the gems and jewels I find along the way  (quotes, songs, thoughts, notes, websites, photos I take, photos I see).   I hope you like the shiny cyber rocks. I may update Shiny Rocks all during the day as I come across new shiny things.
If you have some shiny rocks you’d like to share leave them in the comments.   Let me know what you think.
May truth, love, and light embrace you and emanate from you.

I don’t think I’ve posted any of these before. Forgive me if I have.

DeSoto Family Fun Park
There is a nice cave to visit.

Something new is opening in the town down the road. It looks like it will be an interesting place.

These experiments help me see new directions I could take with photography.

Mr. M.D.
Now can you tell me, tell me, tell me,
What’s ailin’ me?”

My throat
oh my throat
Thursday morning I woke up and couldn’t swallow without great pain. Coughing was an act of personal torture. Talking was totally out. I had to go into work at noon so I picked up some throat numbing lozenges while I was out. I gargled with warm salt water. I drank pickle juice.
Friday morning I was a bit better but it was still difficult to swallow. With the help of the lozenges, tea with garlic, lemon, ginger, and honey, aspirins, and popsicles it improved during the day. I thought I was on the road to recovery.
Saturday morning dispelled that illusion. Saturday was the worst morning of all. Tea with garlic, ginger, honey and lemon, gargling with warm salt water, aspirins, and numbing lozenges weren’t doing the trick. I had to have medical attention. The sooner the better. At 7am I headed towards an urgent care facility. On the way I passed a closer one and turned around. They weren’t open yet so I went next door to Ground Up Coffee and Smoothies for a cappuccino.

I knew they were good because I’d been there before. The warm coffee soothed my throat and the two shots of espresso boosted my energy level dramatically. I finished the cappuccino and headed back to the clinic.

It took a while because I was a new patient but they got around to me in 20 minutes or so.   The nurse called my name and hustled me off to examine room 1.

20140215-174402.jpg

She took my temperature (99.8), blood pressure (140/90), oxygen level (98), and pulse (102). She swabbed my throat. I almost puked. Then she scurried away with her sample.

20140215-174430.jpg

Pretty soon the doctor came along. He was friendly, out going, non-judgmental, and seemed to be a nice guy. I wish my GP was so cool. He was unhappy with the blood pressure and we talked about that for a while. When I mentioned the cappuccino, he went ‘OH’. And told me I shouldn’t drink those. He listened to my heart and lungs, looked in my throat, looked in my ears. He prescribed an antibiotic and a decongestant and labeled it strep throat. He said a nurse would be along with a steroid shot and my prescription.

It wasn’t long before she showed up and said drop your pants.
OH NO! Not a butt shot!
Maybe I should have worn underwear?
She gave me the shot and prescription slip and sent me on my way.

Think how much better my medical care would have been if I hadn’t been taking pictures, texting, and playing on facebook with my cell phone. roflmao

So what did I do next?  I dropped off my prescriptions at the pharmacy next door and went back to the coffee shop for another cappuccino (sorry doc).  I had to do something while I waited. Right?
After the shot and one dose of each medication I do feel a lot better. I was even able to eat soft food tonight.  The real test will be in the morning. Keep your fingers crossed.

Peace, love, and light

Faux Double Exposure

A few double exposure pictures taken with the Hipstamatic app and post processed with Snapseed.

The pictures above and below were taken at Market Square.  Seren and I were hanging out there while Starr took down her art after a successful hanging at The Tomato Head.

The last picture was taken while I was drinking some coffee in front of the DoubleTree hotel in the Secret City.

Zoom Zoom Zoom…..
It was on to the secret city today.  I left Nashville around 10 this morning.

I missed my turn and turned around in this hospital parking lot.

The next time I stopped was in a rest area.

There were great animal footprints in the concrete base

for this awesome sundial.

Finally, I arrived at my destination, Starr‘s studio/home.

I visited there for a while and then checked in to the Doubletree Hotel.

Today I drove from Memphis to Nashville.  Along the way I came across Casey Jones Village.

These were taken in the Brooks Shaw’s Old Country Store.

The bell was in the Casey Jones Museum

and so was Engine #382.

Progress Report

462 days to go

What have I done?  A lot of things are the same as the last time I posted about my progress.  Some of these seem to be never ending.

Cleaned out my office some more.
Took some junk away out of the yard
Threw more things away at the house.  It amazes me how much there is to throw away.
Took a lot of  items to the donation box
I looked at three more motor homes.

Photobucket

This Infinity motor home has 32,000 miles and the asking price is $33,000.I have no idea if that is a good deal.  I did like the way it looked on the outside.  It had one slide and no awning.  One slide and an awning are on my preferences list.  The mileage is two thousand over my 30,000 mile preference.   That isn’t a big deal.  I think this is a gas burner and people have told me that diesel is the only way to go.  Beats me if there is any important difference.

Imperial

It didn’t say how many miles were on the 1991 Holiday Rambler Imperial.  The asking price wasn’t listed either.

Photobucket

It had no slide but it did have an awning.  It appeared to have a gas engine.  All around, I didn’t like the way this one looked.

Photobucket

I really liked the driver’s side door.  I haven’t seen that before.

1991 Winnebago

I also looked at a 1991 Winnebago.  It had body damage and wheel damage.

1991 Winnebago Wheel Damage
500 Days is the name of this evil plan. I need your help picking a title/name for my upcoming evil plan: a seven day road trip across Tennessee:  Memphis, Nashville, and Oak Ridge.  Any naming suggestions?
