Not a One Done

I've got several folders where not ONE photo has been processed.  I'm behind.  Aaack.  Work. You know? It's totally butting into my blogging time. I hate when that happens.

And, I spilled my coffee this morning-on my mouse which made me curse and sent cat and dog flying out of the room and absorbed more open time.  Blah!  Hang on to those mugs while you're multi-tasking I say.

Work calls in just a few minutes, but I thought I'd share a couple without much comment. Maybe if I just shut up, blogging would be a faster endeavor...but then I'd feel like I'm missing something.

Off to hit the office (yuck!)  Have a great day.

you've gifted me my first laugh of the day. not too long ago I did the very same thing - spilled my mug of coffee all over my mouse, the table, myself. luckily my laptop was spared, but it was a close call.
I love "Handles". It's such a Susan shot. they all are. and they're all fabulous. I hope you have a serene day.

I've had mornings like yours -- hope your day turns the corner for you! Deep breaths. Your images are terrific -- I just love that old truck in the field.

OMGoodness, Susan, I absolutely LOVE that door, and it's so perfect for black and white.

I know what you mean about the unprocessed photos. I've spent every spare minute of this week cleaning out and sorting files in anticipation of a new computer arriving tomorrow. It has ended up being a lot more work than I thought it would be, and I'm not sure I will finish before tomorrow.

Happy day to you!!

Don't you hate it when your day starts out with a spilled drink? Hope that was the worst of it and everything is perfect from here on out. Love what you have shared with us this morning - of course, you had me at the reflections of "Handles" and that lovely rust; the unbelievable textures of "Side Door" - this works beautifully in BW; and the wondrous juxtaposition and contrasts of "Flower in the Field" - weren't we just talking about that? Nature vs manmade; red vs green; disintegration vs growth. Yea - contrasts :)

Icky morning! I blame the rain!!! Hope things turn around - the images are AMAZING

Reminds me of the time I knocked over a large Coke onto my keyboard. "Fortunately" I was at work so it wasn't my personal computer I wrecked, and they quickly found me a new keyboard. I hope the rest of your day is going better than it started. And thanks for these photos - each is wonderful in its own way and none needs an explanation. Miss you, my friend.

Wonderful shots! The black and white one is amazing.

I don't even want to know how many unprocessed photos I have. ;-)

Love these! I really like the old car in the field. Hope your day improves :)

Love that pickemup truce.

The shingles break up the linear aspects; I hope they get a little TLC soon. Regardless, it makes for a great image.

I am a man of few words, but it can take a while for me to figure out the few I post.

Your images are divine, but your blog would not be the same without your words and your humor.

Obviously your boss needs to be informed that blogging is a much higher priority than working. Duh! (lol - hi, Mr. Downing!) :-) I agree that not writing any narrative on our posts would save gobs of time, but I like reading the explanations and backstories - it's half the fun!

That "Side Door" just demanded to be a B&W photo. Were it not for the grass in the foreground, I'd have a very hard time believing it's not completely black and white in real life.

I always wonder about old vehicles abandoned in fields. Does that just happen to be the spot where it gave up the ghost on a Sunday drive? Did someone drive it there intentionally to abandon it? (Why? No junk yard handy?) Were they wanting to provide shelter for mice and raccoons? Well, can't say I like to see a rusting hulk of a vehicle gunking up a pretty field (and oozing all manner of toxic automotive fluids into the ground and groundwater over the decades), but it certainly does make for a dash of bright color and photogenic interest.

I hear ya loud 'n clear, ditto here: "I've got several folders where not ONE photo has been processed. I'm behind. Aaack. Work. You know? It's totally butting into my blogging time. I hate when that happens." Nice stories here; especially like the door.
