My Last Photo — September ‘21

Brian, aka Bushboy, posted his monthly prompt that asks us to…
  1. Post the last photo from our camera’s SD card or the last photo from our phone taken in September.
  2. No editing — who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like, or the subject matter didn’t cooperate?
  3. No explanations needed — just the photo will do.
  4. Create a pingback to Brian’s post or link in the comments.
  5. Tag “The Last Photo.”

So here’s the last photo I took on my iPhone in September.

You might think I took this photo at a gas station and that I’m filling up my car’s gas tank. Well, you’d be wrong. This picture was taken in my home’s garage and I’m actually charging my electric car’s battery.

I bought this car in early August and I haven’t driven into a gas station since then. Woo hoo!

My Last Photo — August ‘21

Brian, aka Bushboy, posted his monthly prompt that asks us to…
  1. Post the last photo from our camera’s SD card or the last photo from our phone taken in August.
  2. No editing — who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like, or the subject matter didn’t cooperate?
  3. No explanations needed — just the photo will do.

  5. Tag “The Last Photo.”

So here’s the last photo I took on my iPhone in August.As I did last month, I took this photo specifically for this prompt. We have this interesting — weird, perhaps — carved piece in our living room. I’m not sure where we got it. A gift? An inheritance? And I don’t know who or what that is in this little work of art. Some cultural or mythical figure, perhaps. If any of you know, please enlighten me.

Anyway, I decided that it is a strange enough piece that it would make an interesting photo for Brian’s prompt.

My Last Photo — July ‘21

Brian, aka Bushboy, posted his monthly prompt that asks us to…
  1. Post the last photo from our camera’s SD card or the last photo from our phone taken in July.
  2. No editing — who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like, or the subject matter didn’t cooperate?
  3. No explanations needed — just the photo will do.
  4. Create a pingback to Brian’s post or link in the comments.
  5. Tag “The Last Photo.”

So here’s the last photo I took on my iPhone in July.

I took this photo specifically for this prompt and I decided to get a little, well, artistic, with this shot by going black and white and shooting it in portrait mode on my iPhone.

Care for a banana, anyone?

SoCS — Last Photo

For this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill, we are asked to take the last photo we snapped and to think about the first word that comes to mind when we look at it. And that word is our prompt for today.

Alrighty then. Here’s the last photo I took, which I took in my backyard yesterday morning.

It’s a plant in my backyard with purple flowers. I might have used the word “backyard” or “purple” or “flowers.” But the word I chose was “bees.” Why bees? Well, the reason I took this picture was because there were bees flying around the plant. Can you see any of them? No? Well maybe this will help.

Can you see them now? Not yet? Okay, how about now?

See? Bees? There were about a half a dozen bees around this one plant, but by the time I pulled my iPhone out of my pocket, got close to the plant, and snapped this photo, most of them had flitted off to neighboring plants.

Anyway, Bees. That was the first word I thought about when I looked at this photo. Bees doing whatever bees do when they are investigating the purple blossoms on a flowering plant in my backyard.

What was the first word you thought about when you saw this picture?

One-Liner Wednesday — Mass Insanity

“In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs, it is the rule.”

Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher, cultural critic, composer, poet, and writer

While Friedrich Nietzsche died 121 years ago, it’s as if he was warning us about the mass insanity that has gripped the United States Republican Party in the 21st century, especially in the post-2020 presidential election era.
