Favorite Shot: Shameless Butterfly

I love butterflies shamelessly. And it’s really ok because I’m a girl. No one blinks twice at a girl who loves butterflies. But even if you blinked thrice I would still love them because they are so fabulous. Just look at this picture. By the way, I totally faked this macro shot.

I found this one after a morning run. I see a lot of wildlife in the mornings at camp. Surrously, I’ve seen prolly sixty bunnies on the road. Live on the road. It makes a run that would otherwise seem like folly a little more bearable. Because let’s be real, no one really loves going on runs early in the morning. You can like it, but ‘love’ is a little too strong for 6 am.

Another random fact I learned about bugs this summer: Flies actually do taste things with their feet. Your fourth grade teacher was right all along.

Have such a happy day,


Pipe Dream #41: To Pretend Like I’m Not Working Out

Before the summer, I used to work out. Now, I work too long to really have time to work out, so I console myself by saying I’m doing “lifestyle exercise.” Basically, I hike around a lot.

On this particular spring day, I decided to go on a run in my favorite run place: The Path. I now invite you on a tour of the path.

Conditions were cloudy and wet; I was experimenting with manual mode on my camera. I like manual mode. I spend a lot of time in aperture priority, but manual mode is my second favorite.

I luf trees. Their silhouettes distract me from my burning lungs. Beautiful scenery is my second way of pretending that I’m working out.

I like flowers. They give me hope that the flaming hell kindled in my legs will be extinguished.

This bench is a fabulous duck viewing spot. Of course, I never stop to look at the ducks when I am running. That would be counterproductive to building my endurance.

Oh for pretty. I faked this macro shot.

Silt and sand.

And Lord of the Rings picturesquity.
