This morning ...

(12 bar blues, sung with a gritty black American male voice)


Woke up this moanin … (duh du--uh de duh)
At a quarter to six … (“)
To the sound of the cat … (“)
Throwin up her bics … (“)

Aaa--ah, no no no--oh!


… sorry about the crap lyrics.

After clearing up two lots of cat sick from the stair carpet (one of which
contained a fresh blade of grass), I rushed to take some photos of the early
morning sky, through our bathroom skylight. The sky was on fire … pinkish-red
clouds in the distance, partially covered by dark fluffy ones, scudding by
in the strong wind.

This reminded me of photos I’ve seen of the fires raging in Los Angeles …
a real hell-hole at present. (see the Flickr Blog for September 3rd).
These photos make me think how lucky we are to be living in a wetter and
cooler part of the world.

Thanks for saying that, Dumdad.

BTW, I haven't enhanced the photos in any way, so the colours are natural.

Hi Justin.
These are lovely photos - I don't see any problem with the quality of your pictures, what are you not happy about with them?

I do use flickr, but for blogger I just upload pics. straight from my computer. I resize them for both flickr and blogger.

Hi Lettuce ~ I'm happy with the quality of my pics, thanks to Flickr. I didn't get good quality pics using (Old) Blogger, to upload them.
