Legs in a window.

I see things. Details. Windows. Nooks. Crannies.

I’ve probably photographed this store widow five or six times. Usually at night. Evening light, plus the lights in the window, make these mannequin legs look sort of garish. In daylight they look just fine. Toning down the color a little and adding a little softness makes them look a little mysterious. And, it hides me. My reflection is behind the middle leg.

Needless to say, I’m enjoying the new photo editing software. I learned something today that made me smile. For most work, I have to fine tune each image individually. With this app, I can stack similar images, create what amounts to a formula and process them all at once. Not only does that save time, but it allows me to make a collection of images that have the same basic look and feel, in one go.

Weather report.

If you’ve watched or read the national or world news you know that Houston, Texas, is underwater. The hurricane, which is now a tropical storm, is going to linger in the area until Thursday when it moves northward. By the time the storm finally leaves Houston, about five or six feet of rain water will have fallen. That’s five or six FEET. Not inches. This is unheard of. Nobody seems to know what to do to help the region recover except to keep on rescuing people and doing what we can. This is a disaster of epic proportions. It will take Houston years to recover. Shipping and oil refining is shut down. The airports are closed. Hospitals are being evacuated.

In New Orleans, this sends shivers down our spines. We know what this is. We know how it feels. We will do whatever we can to help. Meanwhile, we’ve had some rain, with more on the way as the storm bands swing around to the east. We expect maybe another eight to ten inches. This would not be a big deal… if the pumps and power turbines were all working. But, they are not. To make matters worse, the entire sewage system needs to be cleared, cleaned and repaired. We have five old sewage trucks and a new one on its way. If they don’t break down and work at full capacity it will take them 20 years to clear the system. Then, they start again.

Think about that.

TWENTY YEARS. And, while they are at it, our streets will be repaired at about the same time. My street is scheduled to be repaired in the year 2032. FIFTEEN Years. Sheesh, assuming I survive that long, I’ll probably be rolling around in a Hoveround. You know, one of those motorized scooters.

The picture. See above. Way above. Heheheh!
