November 10, 2014 … brevity …

This edition should embody the soul of wit.


On my way to the convention venue at Silverstream I passed six or so bunches of cyclists out for a long training spin.

It is brief because yesterday I took very few images. It was the last day of the convention, and like the rest of the days, we had organized fine weather. Well, we are taking the credit for everything we can, but as far as I can tell, this was a very successful convention and barring a few minor glitches with the venue, people were going away happy. We were fortunate to have an experienced and hardworking person in charge of the committee (she knows who she is).  I got a bit distracted attending sessions, so I was not the hardest working person on the team. Nevertheless, I felt at the end, as if I had ridden a hundred kilometres with these people who I saw in the morning as I drove in.


Fungi of species unknown

While we enjoyed our lunch in the open air, someone drew some fungi to my attention . I have no idea what they were, but as the person conduction the nature photography session wisely told us, they can’t run very fast.

I hope normal service will resume tomorrow.


About wysiwygpurple

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
