Northern Flicker

Image
April 20, 2019. Spent the day indoors working on a scraper for gRSShopper and adding chapters to my upcoming ebook. Meanwhile, the songbirds are flocking to our backyard, joined by this Northern Flicker. https://flic.kr/p/2eekfGB

Alex Helps

Image
April 19, 2019. I finished a paper today with plenty of help from Alex. He wasn't as interested in the ball game after as I was. Still, he fits perfectly in my home office. (I like the light in this photo) https://flic.kr/p/RPX6TB

Ordinary

Image
April 18, 2019. I was sitting at the mall waiting while my snow tires were changed and I looked at the scene and thought "nobody ever takes pictures of the ordinary and mundane, like this parking lot." So I did. https://flic.kr/p/Ts4yqQ

Vine

Image
April 17, 2019. This is a vine along the fence-line on the train tracks in front of the house. You can see the trunk and branch structure really clearly - this is obscured when it has leaves. Wrote a scraper for gRSShopper over the last couple of days and am using it to create reference lists for my blog posts. https://flic.kr/p/2ebvUUr

Roof Repairs

Image
April 16, 2019. We had some patches applied to our roof in advance of what are likely roof repairs. You can see where we lost a large chunk of shingles. We're hoping insurance will cover it. A new roof, by the way, costs a *lot* of money. https://flic.kr/p/2fuKtKG
