Fool

I'm going to be a photo posting fool today because...that's right...the rest of my vacation pics got back from the developer. Remind me not to shoot Seattle Filmworks film on vacation again even if it is free.



First off, here is a photo of my sister Starhawk who came to visit me on the farm last week.



Next, the beginning of my late summer harvest. All this in one hour of picking. Sugar Pears, Anaheim Chilies, Sweet Banana Peppers, Jalapenos, Habaneros, Hungarian Yellow Wax Peppers and Cayennes, Red and Yellow Tomatoes, Green and Yellow Cucumbers and a bushel of Crab Apples. Not pictured, Peaches and Persimons and a truckload of Crookneck Squash.



And the first of my small pumpkin crop. I planted 5 seeds and got 15 pumpkins like these jolly fellows:



The pears that fall when I'm not around have made a squishy mess on the ground and attracted a variety of animal life. I walked out on Saturday and a carpet of red and gold lifted to the air. There were literally thousands of these medium sized butterflies. Mostly red/orange and black but a few of the blue/black variety as well. Some of theme graciously posed for the following portraits.











Hope you enjoy!

This also reminds me of some reading I was doing a week ago on building a butterfly garden… now I have renewed motivation to do this!

Re: oh ya....
Butterfly Bush, Bee Balm and just about any of the asters are great to attrzct butterflies. I once bought one of those butterfly hatching kits at the Nature Store and raised them from eggs and fed them on asters. Very cool little critters.

Re: *groan*
Every woman I've showed this to has said, "OK now how about a picture of the guy?"

Seriously though it was the hands I found most attractive about him. I mean he was pretty much and Adonis anyway but it was the hands that spoke to me so that's what I got. He is single though. Good reason for returning to CO. He lives in Bailey up above Denver.

Re: *groan*
And to top it all off the guy is like 50 years old. Looking at him I'd have sworn he was no more than 30, he just glowed with youth. He was staying at one of the clothing optional Hot Springs where he went out each evening to watch the sunset in a secluded pool and play various crystal bowls for anyone who cared to listen. It just killed me.

Re: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Well not on these photos but my boss gave me like 6 rolls for free before I headed out west and I didn't really want to use it because it's a bitch to get developed. But I found a developer other than Seattle who will do it for $2 a roll and they actually made it look pretty decent. I won't do it again though. you're right it's crap.

Re: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
The reason nobody develops it is because the chemicals in the film are so toxic they screw up any printing machine you got. We had a "Accept this film and we fire you" policy at Eckerds cause one roll of Seattle did $800 worth of damage to the machine. We even accepted 110 film over that crap.

Re: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Actually it's not even a C-41 process. The film is thicker than normal 35 mm film and coated with a different kind of emulsion since it's movie film and not print film. So under no circumstances should it ever be run through a C-41 automatic machine. That's kind of like trying to develop slide film with a C-41 processor.

very impressive.

and those hands definately glow.
