Sleuth Bunny

Image by SnaggleTooth Easter 2013

In an effort to do something "me" for the current holiday celebration, I've resorted to altering a photo of a shadow bunny...

I haven't had this one off since 2007. I miss my Mother's ham dinners, n will miss out this year on all the festivities with egg hunting. Yep, I have to work. N get some sleep before that too.

 I did get some Peeps so I wouldn't feel too deprived.

Have a fun Easter, or Seder, or plain old week-end if you get one. N thank your lucky eggs in the basket when you get them... Or your sip of wine... (I'll miss those)

So many eyes to see,
Staring at me-

Strange faces there be,
Blaring serene,

Within symmetry.

Colorful characters
Born from buttons.

Monkeys, mantas,
Clowns n monsters.

Facing forward.
Image by SnaggleTooth March 2013

New creatures greeting me.
Leading me to believe-

In magical places
Hidden before my eyes,

Within nature.

Where's the green promised on just past Saint Patty's Day? Where has the warmth been hiding?

It's been avoiding the Cape today on it's astronomical debut-

On the Vernal Equinox equal time is applied, not just implied.

Here 's to hoping green things spring forth soon, not remain closed in by bitter cold much longer...

This version is my favorite- you can almost tell what the original is...

This oak leaf with snow pic was taken on the front walk after work with a flash...

Happy Spring to you!

1K MileMarker

ESR has just now finally reached it's 1000 th published post!
Beginning on a light note of "text only" in the Spring of 2005, pic use on ESR soon evolved thanks to a scanner, web-cam pics (now gone), Paint Shop Pro 7.01, n finally the digi-cam received in late 2007. I'm still operating on that 5-mpxl btw- These pics were generated in Paint Shop Pro.

Post subjects from all over the charts have appeared. From Sharks, n rubber Ducky cruising world currents, to personal artwork of original images n unicorns, to Bees, n Critters, over to what I did, where I am, n how I've felt, the on the spot poems, Rypo definition invention, n a few Memes, I've worked hard to expose my creative true self while still guarding my identity somewhat.

I don't know how long they'll allow me my Bloggy fun, but I hope I can keep going awhile. Then I'll make a new one if they make me.The company of some wonderful blog friends n readers thru the years has been the most fun of the entire experience, along with the rewarding comments. 
Thanks again for reading here-
1K, n it only took me 8 years!

More strange altered images to wonder about. You can never tell what the original may be...

Or even guess at the original colors..I like the abstracts alot.

Then there's the odd, silly faces found. Yep, it's all the same pic...

- Large waves at the Boat Ramp Beach during the past windy, Nor"Easter storm. The water is always so calm in the shallow water here, this is very unusual. You can see the slapping against the sea wall  near the trees at the top.
Today is much warmer, yay-

Of Course

Image by SnaggleTooth March 2013

Yet another long duration, windy, flooding, winter storm is accosting my area of the country. I pray this round the power stays up enough for heat, n not ruining the food. Meanwhile I may need a tether line for errand running thru the plaza- The wind gales are strong n the storm surge waves are slapping the wall by the nearby ramp...

On a February vacation week Day Off, a couple weeks ago, I took a field trip to a horse farm with some folks. It was freezing n a bit icy out, but I was charmed by the company of the Equines, who were no doubt bored with winter also.

 I've always preferred horses. Having some is a dream I gave up when I had Little Ones decades ago. Horses meant the world to me when I was young. I used to read all the horse story books, collect Breyer model horses, n go riding at every opportunity before parental duties became priority.

After a morning of spending time with all kinds of horses again, I revisited my old dreams. I'd really like to have the money n ability to have a farm like that someday, right after I hit the lottery jackpot. I'd have to become a day person again to do that tho.

I'm still wondering how I'll get to work on time for "Spring Ahead" on the clock time here this week-end...

Outside the rail from my paddock

I can almost reach this pretty thing.

In the dead of winter in icy cold 

Taunting n tempting me.

Looks as good as summer candy, 

but doesn't smell like a living thing 

N I know some flowers taste so sweet

Except tough plastic ones...
