Today's post title comes courtesy of Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert. I chose it mostly because I couldn't come up with anything else to plug in there, but I also felt it was at least a little relevant to one of today's images. I certainly wouldn't go so far as to say it's art, but it's definitely a mistake that seemed worth keeping. At least to me, anyway.
To begin things, though, two photos I took this morning as Kaylee and I began our walk. This was looking back toward the sunrise from the edge of the woods:
Next, a shot of the mountain ahead of us as we walked; I liked the contrast of the sky with the mountain as it was lit by the rising sun:
I took this on my way through the parking lot of the local Chinese restaurant as I went to pick up my lunch; the red berries popped out at me as I drove around the first corner:
And now the keeper mistake. As usual, while I took Kaylee for our final walk of the day I attempted to take some photos of the sunset. And again, as usual, they all turned out blurry due to the low light. Today I was also contending with strong winds, particularly as we walked through an area that had been cleared of trees for a housing complex, so that certainly didn't help matters—I could actually feel the wind move my hands as I held the camera. However, as I checked through my photos I found I really liked how this one turned out—it reminded me of the effect you get when a watercolor bleeds into the paper. So I thought it was worth sharing here:
Finally, our Kaylee photo. She likes to taunt me in the morning as I prepare to head to work by falling asleep right in front of me:
Talk about your cruel and unusual punishment, huh?
