Rypos" I did it!" Edition

Yikes- I have been neglecting my Rypos since February 2011 ! Although I've laughed at them many times, I never got to the ready to share stage.... until this month. It even took me ages just to get some images together to post with them.
This round I've left several bare with-out comment, definition, or even a thought! Just cause they are so funny or strange! (Plus, I drew a blank of good stuff to add). If a googled pic was used in making images, urls are underneath. Some *edits have been added since posting.

I confess the other thing I inadvertently did, was accidentally post the un-fixed up, plain text of "I" when several clicks ahead on my constipatedly extra-slow reacting Puter, before "I" was near ready! Don't know how it happened, (when did I hit control P?)- n hope no one read that... Sorry if you were pre-teased! After the clicking caught up to what I was looking at, I took the post back down in drafts for the images, links, n color stages to get done.

Oy- I did it!

Eyes n Legs

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

What a silly looking thing I found today upon applicatiom of my usual techniques...
Surprized, dis-embodied eyes steaming with heavy thought clouds, separated from legs in pink hose, under a flared, blue skirt- What else could it be?

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

Before that discovery, the image's bare color essence revealed rare, mysterious beauty. This speaks to me...

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

Another treasure found last week from the side of The M-cove, n it's hidden alter-egos to share...

The water shimmer glare doesn't look real, but that's what my cam got.

Today's got eaten by the humidity clouds. We've been hot n muggy all week.

Suggestion Box

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 21 2011
"Excuse me -"
I was thinking someone needed directions...
... Coming from a car driver stopping in the middle of the D-bridge to interrupt probably my last shot of a fading sunset over the M-cove sky. I did not turn about, but held cam steady n clicked.
"... If you climb to the top of that hill you'll get a great picture of the whole cove" she loudly suggested.

I bit my tongue.
"No thanks, I take this shot here every week." Is all that came out in response.
Then she drove on, but many aggrivated thoughts entered my mind from the brief encounter clouding over what would have been peaceful.
I don't want that hill pic.
Photo by SnaggleTooth 2010That's not where the light is. It doesn't show the reflection of the sunset over the water. Even at sunrise, you'd have to aim at the other B-cove, hidden behind trees n homes.
Been there done that, n the power lines are in the way of what I'd call a good pic from up there. She missed the point of what I'm doing.
Who is that person to tell me what I want a pic of, as though I don't know where a good shot is?

Photo by SnaggleTooth 2010
If she wants to see those shots, why doesn't she go get her cam n climb the steep, brambled, n newly tree-toppled pathways up there in the bug swarms as the light fades, n then realize it's too dark to even get any pic? N too dark to climb down...
I've only been living here about 30 years. I don't know what I'm doing, or what I want to see...?
I'm so independent n focused on what I prefer already, that I really don't want anyone telling me what to do, especially in my free time on my Day Off! Wow, I really resented that womans intrusion into my chosen activty. Why can't I just let it go? Why did I let it upset my peace-time?

Photo by SnaggleTooth 2010 Now, too late, I wish I'd had a printed business card with my blog addresses on it... I'll start working on making a card so the next time- maybe I can hook a new reader.
My stats the past few weeks shows ESR traffic so very low. Many bloggers have slowed down on the net clicking this summer.

Would this unsolicited suggestion have bothered you as it did me?

Note: The top pic was the interrupted one, The other ones were taken from the top of the hill in April 2010. From those shots I posted the "Twisty Twig" pic.

Red Vines

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

First to change color-

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

Then I changed them more...

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

N again, finding so many funny faces from a pic snapped just out the window.

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

Another vine I walked past last Day Off on my way to the D-bridge decorates a tree beside the M-cove.

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

Red vines are the sure sign that summer is past in this neck of the woods, before other greens even think of other color.

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

Red vines are trusted to tell me when I need to ready the coats n warm blankets, n give me such pretty pics to play with each autumn.

Feeling Fall

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

The weather took a downturn the past few days from the 80's F to the 60's for daylight, n 40's overnight. I quickly got the storm windows down, n have started using the hot-water bottles in socks to stay warm.

Ever since Hurricane Irene, I've noticed all the trees have been quickly defoliating. It will likely be a dud color year for the leaf turning, which is usually peak here the first of November.
My altered pics continue becoming stranger, as evidenced by this example... (Hey Mon n Boo-Boo Kitty with a mouse on his head? any better guesses?)

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

This was the first pic I took walking out on the D-Bridge that day back at the start of the month.

Pastel Horizon

Photo by SnaggleTooth Summer 2011
Opposite the awesome, partly cloudy sunsets that happen at Fav Beach the sky often turns pastel colors, as it did the last day of August. Difficult not to feel calm n peaceful sitting on a rock watching the sky change after a rocky journey there.

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

... Or is the sky watching me?

Sunday, September 11, 2011


Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

Ten years have passed n it still upsets me as if the death of a parent, putting a knot on my gut that churns. How could so much human damage caused by other humans ever be acceptable?

People were going about their day to day business, doing their jobs, n taking planned trips on a beautiful clear day.

Suddenly the day turned into Hellfire, slammed by large planes, offices exploding, evacuating, fires smoking, folks trapped, folks jumping, buildings collapsing, Pentagon hit, government security shattered, Going down to doom in a field triumphantly thwarting further destruction...

My Day to Day became unimportant in that shadow.

Sleep became non-existent seeing the nightmares.

The intensity of the memory survives.

The number 2996 had died.

On this date I always experience a day of mourning, especially as I'm forced to continue my Day to Day activities, for I'm no longer complacent.

This year there's a new Tribute Memorial with fountains n specially arranged names at Ground Zero in NYC. Looks nifty in the pics n concept. I hope to see it someday.

There's also a yearly blog project to pay tribute to the victims.

I'm only able to reflect n deal with the day's feelings quietly on my own, still vivid in my mind. I'll never be at peace remembering 911...

Pretty September

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011
Here's my best pic from sunset over the M-cove at Low Tide on the first of the month. I always prefer purple n pink sunset color. With the added elements of reflection colors, n water ripples, the composition intrigues me.

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011
Tough to imagine that pic could get twisted about n still be pretty altered...
Yesterday we began a stretch of cool, rainy, grey days for the rest of the week.

18th Century

Photo by SnaggleTooth Aug 2011

Being a Night Owl was tough during the long-term power outage this past week. Luckily I'm the prepared sort, having been a Girl Scout Of America for 10 years growing up. Also, I'd never realized how handy it would work out for improvised lighting because I procrastinate packing away some holiday decorating trinkets.

A glass snowman with a glowing sparkle-light n lantern which ran on 3-AA batts was my Livingroom navigation light.
In the Bathroom a lithium cell powered, plastic, fake, flickering Ghost candle-cup helped me out. To counter-act the ghost, while needing more light, there was an Angel, stained glass votive stand with some tea-lights in it. A few years ago at a clearance sale at the pharmacy, I'd bought a bag of 50 unscented tea-lights for about one dollar! I finally made a decent dent in that bag.

On the kitchen table I went through about 5 of them. They last longer when blown out to re-harden after lighting a new one from it, to save on matches. When needing more light I supplimented with a regular candle for short periods, careful not to use it up. I found a 30 year-old, small Santa candle still in the junk drawer too! How do you increase candlepower without additional candles? Easy, put it infront of portable mirrors to multiply illumination power.

Photo by SnaggleTooth Aug 2011A co-worker recently gave me a car-battery booster because the tire-inflator was broken. I made sure it charged up the day before the storm, n used the AC outlet on it to re-charge my cell phone several times, because the house phone was out, n my cell runs out of juice fast when in constant use. It could've also been used for the lamp, or TV, but I didn't know how long it would need to last for the phone safety factor. The elec Co's estimate for returning juice was Saturday, so I felt fortunate I didn't have to wait that long after-all.

Days before the predicted storm I'd put the freezer-pak collection in the freezer. All week I'd worked at eating the good stuff out of there, so the ice-cream wouldn't become a casualty n be wasted. Then about 6 hours after power was out, I put a frozen pak next to the milk in the fridge, n repeated at intervals. I also had back-up boxed milk on the shelf, n canned condensed milk, which don't need refrigeration.

I used the gas stove downstairs to heat water, n hard boiled the eggs so they wouldn't go bad. While I was down stairs I ended up bailing water from the defrosted freezer, n big hunks of frost broke off it, which I then put in zip bags n used as freezer paks in my frig. Doing this helped save my tangerines, lettuce, n unopenned cheeze too.

I stretched the use of the hot kettle water by mixing it with some cold in a basin to wash, n made tea in thermos travel mags several at a time to last all day.

Sunday, day of the storm I didn't have to work, but on Monday the power was back on there, so I did. Power was still out at home. Washing up in the dark after the sweaty job was tough, using a bucket of warm water made with kettle water n wash-clothes. It was really tough getting my hair done too.

Image by SnaggleTooth Aug 2011 If I had to do things this way all the time, little out of the necessary would ever get done. I felt like I was living in the 18th century- but they didn't have glowing, battery powered snowmen then...

Reflecting Flight

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011
I think this altered image is nifty.

Image by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

Here I see a cute little critter with blue glowing eyes n a white wig, who's reflection is doing a Russian jump...

Photo by SnaggleTooth Aug 2011 A days end on a free day at my fave place in the world gave me this moment to keep forever.

This week I have some free time off from work. I'd been hoping to go swimming more but fave beach is closed due to so much debris being washed up. At least I got some beautiful sunset pics to enjoy n share.

Also MB n her Little Ones are here for the week-end. A PC party/ BBQ is tomorrow- a great way to celebrate The end of Summer.

I hope yours also ends on an up-note...

Happy Labor Day!

Village Sights

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011
At the little church right around the block The bell is sunning itself... something's missing- The Belfrey blew off!

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

The pieces are still waiting to get carted away on the other side.
I took all these on the way to the Post Office n back.

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

All seems normal at the pier until you realize it's Labor Day week, the last week of summer, n there are no crowds!

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 2011

The pier is the BG of this pic with an uprooted, mature oak on the bluff right across the road.

I saw even more tree damage, n it was a short walk...
