Photo finish Friday: “Flower power”

After a summer rain, its anthers covered in pollen and filaments opening up, this day lily strives toward renewed life.

Photo finish Friday: “Film at Eleven”

Some things you can’t ig-noir.

From my limited understanding, they were filming scenes for one of the cable true crime shows, which is interesting if not ironic because the owner of the house used to read true crime books. Then she married and had two sons, and found them to be scary enough, as young children often are.
 
When we arrived, the entryway — foyer — was strewn with magazines, papers, and other chaos to make the house looked ransacked, and two actors — too young, too thin, and too nattily dressed to be real police detectives, were putting on blue surgical gloves as if they were about to inspect a crime scene.
 
I wonder what cops wore before latex.

Reaching toward the future.

Reaching toward the future /

raindrops reflect the present /

while seeds crack the past.

Photo finish Friday: “Checkin’ in Once Again”

“One for the money. Two for the show….”

From blue suede to persuade, Elvis is still singing to Marilyn down at the local pizza and sandwich shop. Four years

Elvis and Marilyn hanging out at the local pizzeria from May 25, 2013.

ago, almost to the day, Photo finish Friday featured these two. Not much has changed. Marilyn has gained a cap — which may or may not go with her dress — and she’s clutching her clutch in both hands now. You can never be too careful these days. But they are both still hanging around Harby’s.

Who do you know now that you knew four years ago that might be worth checking in with or writing about. Is he still living in the same place? Does she still have the same job? Do you still see each other and visit?

Oftentimes the biggest thing holding you down is the crap from above that lands on your wings.
