Pussy Willows

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Every once in a while when you download the images from the Canon, you come up with totally unexpected results. This is a completely unedited picture; no brightness or contrast editing at all. Straight off the camera.

Pussy Willows

When I was up in Marblehead a few weeks ago, someone had some pussy willows in a vase, right next to their very white front door (blue house). I guess the sun was just right — and super bright — behind the vase when I made the photo and so the pussy willows almost seem to strangely glow.

Tongue Tied

Friday, April 9th, 2010

Every once in a while, apparently I can’t speak English. At least a few dozen times this week (and I am not sure why particularly this week), I have:

1. completely forgotten the English word for something, yet know it in German and just blurt it out without realizing it is in the middle of an English sentence
2. have gotten completely tongue-tied with the whole accent thing, stumbling over Th’s, F’s V’s and W’s.
3. spoken English however used German sentence structure…

Oh well.
