every month the floor staff gets some kind of free lunch or dessert or some such, and today it was hot dogs. now, a pile of dogs off the grill is festive. a pile of supermarket dogs, out of the microwave (I assume) is kind of….sad. and unappetizing.
it’s not all that unusual to find a bowl of playdough in the staff lounge, but this batch was very warm, having been heated in the microwave, which is a little weird.
a few minutes after I took this picture, the skies opened up…
went to see Commonwealth Shakespeare’s annual free production on the Common. this year was “Two Gentlemen of Verona” which was absolutely brilliant. and the weather was just perfect for enjoying an outdoor performance.
had a large scale mural project going on today, which prompted me to try the panorama setting on my camera for the first time.
Watson prepares to celebrate Ramadan with a plate of food prepared for the poor, a loaf of bread to break the daily fast, and a lantern, to signal day’s end and the breaking of the daily fast.
this is a Green Crab. they’re usually reddish brown. go figure.
a couple summers ago, there was a caterpillar photo exhibition at work, and we had a few live demos, which were amazing. well, I invited them back for a day and it was still just mind-boggling. I will post more pictures later, but I did like this one….the lighting/focus are a bit off, so it looks like they’re silhouetted on the back of the leaf, which they’re not.
another year with the fishing program happening in front of work. this kid was funny…when he spotted me, he hollered out to his mom “she’s taking pictures!!!!” she explained that they had been at a park and there was a creepy guy with a camera. so mom told him anytime there was a stranger with a camera on him, he should let his mom know right away. which he did.
there was a really fun Frisbee “playshop” at work today…we learned some fun tricks. here’s a kid giving his best go at the “jump up and catch it behind your knees” trick…which has some official name that I can’t remember.
