I would disable comments on this post but for some reason I’m thick this morning and can’t figure out how. Any comments I feel aren’t relevant or respectful will be terminated with extreme prejudice.
I’m not much of one to be photographed, and I don’t much care about photographing other people, however horrible and antisocial that may sound. But landscapes, the weather, my pets and other animals… those I do like to take pictures of. Here are a few of the ones I found when going through the 2013 folders. Note that I am an enthusiastic but entirely unskilled photographer.
You know, I could make a killer slide set from those, invite some friends over, and drive them all insane by forcing them to watch 3,000 slides that nobody but me gives a shit about.
In the meantime, here’s a half-dozen or so. That’s only worth 1d4 SAN points. Click for much larger versions.
None of the images are processed (I wouldn’t know how).
1 & 2: We live on the eastern slopes of the Sandia mountains near Albuquerque, and they’re different from moment to moment 365 days a year. Our sunsets are really short but they make up for it by being quite frequently incandescent. I keep trying to capture the colours but don’t usually succeed.
3. Only one snow picture. I’m being restrained, because it occurs to me that not everyone finds cold wet white stuff as fascinating as I do.
4-9 : My dogs and assorted other animals. Neva, the husky, gives the one of the best head-tilts I’ve ever seen on a dog. The birds are just cute, and hard to capture (for me, anyway).
And finally, 10: A picture of my grandad’s house. No, seriously, it’s a picture of Chambord Castle in the Loire valley, which is only a few miles from where my grandad used to live. I am not allowed to bring people to that area without a) making them visit lots of local markets, sample lots of cheese and sample even more wine and b) making them visit this particular castle among the gajillons that line the various rivers of the region. The castle itself is some medieval e-peen thing where the French king Francis I was trying to prove that he had a bigger one than everyone else.
I couldn’t wait to make the Elekk Plushie battle pet, and as soon as I had 50 hexcloth I immediately
wasted used them on that. And he’s cute… until you summon him. Then he’s just creepy.
He doesn’t move, see, and that’s the problem. He just sort of stands there, staring at you with those pink button eyes. And then you move, and he stays where he was, and you forget all about him… until you stop again somewhere and suddenly he’s there, right behind you, staring at you with those pink button eyes.
It ain’t natural, I tells ya.
I would like for these to be tameable because my hunter wants one. I’m more of a cat-person in WoW, but these guys are super cute. (Yes, I have a couple of the non-ghostly ones from the Plaguelands.)
I would also like for my Warlock to have ghostly form all the time, because it’s super cool. Kthxbai.
See also this for further evidence.
I don’t actually have a cat right now, but I have had cats continuously from my 8th birthday until last year, so I feel it’s still valid. I always knew they were out to get me. Though not nearly as much as Stargrace’s cat: clicketh.
