A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
Another highly photogenic flower, which we considered a weed when they grew randomly along our ditchbanks on the farm where I grew up in northwest Wyoming. But it's almost impossible to take a bad picture of a bright yellow sunflower and it's hard not to smile even a little when you see one.
These photos of oxeye daisies are from just the third batch of photos I had taken in the two months after my vertigo episode. They were just recovered from the June 2014 photo archives so we have a jump on next summer and a nice reminder of what oxeyes looked like last June
I went in the hospital in early May 2014 and took the first photos after that nearly a month later, in June. I have several hundred unedited photos taken during the summer that I haven't edited. My blog almost died during this period because I went for months without posting. Now I am going back to see what I can uncover from the unedited treasure trove of photos I took sporadically during my vertigo recovery period.
Almost home in the South Salt Lake Valley! I hope you have enjoyed the scenic tour from St. George to Salt Lake. If you are familiar with the road between St. George and Salt Lake, you will see many familiar landmarks. If you are from somewhere else in the country or the world, you will have become acquainted with the rugged terrain between the two places. Except for a few scattered small towns, the trip scenery is mostly of hills, mountains, and prairies. Imagine Brigham Young and others going on this journey by wagon or horseback and taking days to make the trip. Two days after I took this photo, I landed in the hospital with severe vertigo, which has taken months to recover from. To retrace the trip, go to Categories on the right, find I-15 from St. George to Salt Lake, and take the trip again.
