Re-Elect Barack Obama
Holy Jebus! I thought I only took a brief break from blogging. Is it 2012 already? Wasn’t the Earth supposed to spin off of its axis or something by now?
As you may be aware, I haven’t posted any articles for a bit. This was an unintended interruption. Real life just sometimes gets in the way. Even the prolific Bing McGhandi has stopped blogging for the moment. What is this life thing, and why is it such a pest?
I hope to return to my goal of about two articles per week. In the meantime, I want you to contemplate the above photograph. Aren’t our election seasons long enough? Do we have to start 2012 already?
Even more than I enjoy writing this blog, I enjoy making feeble images that remind me how feeble my photography skills are. My black-and-whites are only minutely less feeble than my colors, so last Saturday I decided to go up to Muir Woods and try my hand at the Ansel Adams thing. I’m still trying to determine if any of those images are remotely above feeble.
That is where I found the above bumper sticker. I guess out in nature hugging trees is where you would expect to find a dirty liberal Obama-loving hippie socialist, so I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. Contrary to expectation, the sticker was not on a VW Microbus. It was on the back of a gas-guzzling, Earth-raping SUV. Stereotypes are such difficult things to maintain.
I’m hoping to have another article up by Saturday. In the meantime, enjoy this banana slug.
ADDENDUM: Apparently not enough of you were enjoying the banana slug. Enjoy this mental slug, instead:
