Aged Scotch (Tape)

We've been participating in the informal community clothing, furniture and decorating swap. We got some useful modular foot-by-foot-by-foot storage cubes for a kid's room from the Millers, whose son also goes to DCS Montessori.

I de-crayoned a blue cube and then went on to tackle the leftover scotch tape. The more boring the job got, the more interesting the bits of removed tape appeared.

I have to admit, used is the way to go. Since I enjoy repairing, I may have an uncommon viewpoint. Perhaps I should buy, refurbish and sell.

Flying Saucer

If it isn't a flying saucer, I'd then say it resembles something that says, "Feed me, Seymour!"

Aspen Leaf in Dehydrated Slimy Algae

We visited Barr Lake State Park today. We didn't have a lot of time, but we were able to take a little walk around. From the boardwalk, we could see sections of the wetlands (we called them swamps until the government people came) in which the water had receded. I don't know that this could really be called a traditional autumn picture. I stepped in, sat in, and cleaned this stuff off myself and the kids; funny how something so icky could look so interesting. Even after discovering its unique texture and goose-poop additions, it was still interesting to look at.

The school year has started. I'm not sure what Rorschach-ian interpretation would be given to my associating this picture to this event.

Incidental Discoveries

I found these pretty yellow flowers. I like combinations of buds and flowers and sweeping stems.

Upon taking a few shots, I paid enough attention to detail to see the yellow crab spider in the center. These spiders do a great job of matching their host plant's color, so I didn't feel too oblivious.

When I'm on the other side of the camera, the flower and the spider take up the frame, encompass the view. Later, I get some perspective and realize just how neat it was that I found what I found.
