SUNRISE OR SUNSET SPECIAL

Image
ROGELIO ... (ROW-HAY-LEO) Welcome back, my friends. Welcome to sunrise and sunset photography blog. ... Today we have ROW-HAY-LEO visiting us.  This guy is such a good friend that I would give him the shirt off of my back. And I will tell you why. ... Back in the '90s, when I was working in downtown Calgary, Alberta, Canada, I suffered an ulcer.  I am very much a Type A personality, so I was hustling.  What did I do?  I took this four-tower office complex from the stone-age to the computer age.  Anyway, type A and go, go, go.  I was having a great time discovering all of this geek stuff.  I got it.  It came to me naturally.  So a very cool career. ... Anyway, I suffered a severe ulcer.  I was in the hospital being monitored and was hooked up to tubes here and there.  So, ROW-HAY-LEO comes to visit me.  All good.  But he left the room every 5-10 minutes while he was visiting. ... I come to find out after everything was said and done (I got operated on to fix said ulcer. Got a beauty

SUPER SUNSETS SEEN

.SUPER SUNSETS SEEN MAGICAL MOMENTS SUNSETS are magical in that their patterns are unique every time that the Sunsets.  I, for one, feel privileged to view each and every one. (A story for another time). With the year progressing to now be August 6th which is pretty close to the 15th.  That is mid-August and almost September;  September has always freaked me as that was back to school time.  From top to bottom, each picture is called Close, Closer, Closest.  . Copper colors create a creepy cloud over the closed commercial storage complex. Casual and Soft, Sun shows her colors when below horizons Sam the Strawman waving goodnight to Sun.  He waited all day. Nature never ever makes a straight line. The top is Nature and Bottom is manmade Humble and Humid.  London, Canada at the end of the day. . A few nice pictures is always a good idea to show to people.  I have way more on my website. https://www.andregaudet.ca https://www.photogaudet.ca . I am having such a great time taking these pic

PLASTIC IS FOREVER

PLASTIC is FOREVER . . Some plastics that I have. . . . .Imagine that the smaller of the plastic objects above (my iPhone case) is a face. . The two black round dots are eyes and the straight line below is it's the mouth.  What do you think that is saying to me? . What the heck were people thinking when they started to use plastic bags, I was very apprehensive as I knew that brown paper bags had so many other applications or used elsewhere and I knew that they would decompose. I can think of these applications for paper bags: Cover your school books. Wrap that shoebox that you are using to return goods. Keep your tulip bulbs over the winter. Bury your pet. Bury your dreams or keepsakes for later. Carry your fortune to the bank. Lunch? Yup, how many used paper bags? I have a daughter that returned from 4 months in Bangkok and visiting other cities and close by countries, For take-out food, you get each dish individually placed in a plastic bag. That could be three items  Then those

SUNSET SOFTLY SEÑORITA.

FRANKEEE ... so glad that you could come over today.  Come in out of the chilly air.  Google tells me that it is -4'C this morning.  Cloudy and going up to +7'C.  Warm sunshine to warm our bones. ... You know the drill, mon ami.  Shoes off and slippers on then move over to your reclining chair by the window and close to the fireplace.  I still don/t know how you ended up with the choicest location of the living room.  But, I suppose the guest should have the best of what I can offer. ... You relax and I shall return with some tea this time. Some nice tea with some homemade biscuits.  Yummy for the tummy.  Meanwhile, you can look some pictures of this morning. ... We can start off with a short video of the skyline with a couple of accompanying photos;. ... . . .. That is the half-moon up above.  I have a time-lapse of it having its moonset.  I should be able to find it.  Sure can. ... . . I realize that each of the videos is marked as a sunset.  That should be sunrise!! ...   .

SUNRISE SUNSET SUNDAY

Image
FRANKEEE ... Its Sunday today.  Church day for most.  I stopped going to my church awhile back.  That is a story by itself.  I fact I walked out twice in the middle of the ceremony to protest what the priest was saying.  But, that is another blog post. ... The other reason that I don't go into established churches is that I see God in everything I look at when I am in HIS outdoor.  I am awestruck how everything is built (form) and how it interacts with the whole (function).  Form and function are friggin' awesome. ... But, where are my manners?  Come in my dear FRANKEEE ... and make yourself comfortable.  That's right.  Get those slippers on and go on over to your recliner chair by the window and close to the fireplace.  ... I'll go and get us some beers in an ice bucket and we can sit down for a spell.  Meanwhile, do you want to see some recent images? Sure, my friend, coming right up. ... . . Hey, now pilgrim.  Here are the beers.  I'll pop one for you.  There you

SUNRISE SILLINESS

Image
FRANKEEE ... WOW, my children told me that I can no longer go outside or amongst people. ... There is a reported case of the CORVID-19 infected woman in London, Canada. .. Seeing that I am in the group that is most vulnerable (babies and older folks or anyone with a lowered immune system) I can no longer go outside for fear that I will get infected and pass on to another life. ... I don't see any difference as I have not been able to drive since the beginning of December when I was told by the Ministry of Transport that my driving privileges were revoked until certain criteria were met. ... This all happened because I was honest in my words and I told it to a Doctor. ... First, let me get us some beers and we can sit down and chat more.  You get on your slippers and go sit on your recliner there by the window so you can watch the deer in the garden. ... While I am gone why don't you look at some pictures of my recent photoshoot?  Actually, it is the sunset of last night.  Frida

SUNSET SUBLIME SHARI

SHARI ... hahaha, I bet that you would never be featured in a blog post when you were growing up.  Well, Shari, I hate to just type.  I like to talk to people.  So I took a name that I knew could be male or female. ... I came up with FRANKEEE.  But now for this blog, it will be Shari that I am talking too. ... Here you go, Shari.  A couple of pictures for you to look at while I slip into the kitchen to make us some tea. ... Some sunsets of not too long ago. ... . .I know!  That was awesome when I saw it for the first time too.  Those ever so colourful clouds as they march across the sky.  Spectacular I say. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
