Camping out.

Today, you get two.

Two posts. One just an hour earlier than this one.

I scheduled one for yesterday morning as usual. But, I bought a new iPad, I changed some operating systems which caused WordPress to be so confused that I can’t even remove the App for the new iPad in order to reinstall it. Somewhere along the line that introduced a bug which kept yesterdays post from appearing as scheduled.

I’ve had people make suggestion about workarounds. Do this. Do that. Do this other thing. Keep in mind I am not a tech guy. That’s one reason that I use Apple products. That’s also the reason¬† that Storyteller hasn’t become the website that I’d hope to have built by now. It’s way too much for me. I’ve tried WordPress template sites. They don’t help. I tested one page and it hung up everything.

So, my apologies. I’m not one of these bloggers who thinks you should post ten times a day and then let it go. Just so you know, when I see a whole bunch of posts from one blogger on one day, I usually read one and trash the rest of them in email. It’s too much. Think about this. If you are busy, so I am. That’s just a variation of what the army teaches you. If you can see the enemy, the enemy can see you.

Anyway.

More Halloween. In the 9th Ward. Apparently, this dude camped out with his travel trailer. And, never left. Or, he was shot, which is kind of a usual thing in this neighborhood. I didn’t do much to this picture except to clean it up a little bit.

Glaring at you.

A little skull for you.

Because we are into our long Halloween weekend. Because it seems normal in the swamp that I call home. Because I saw it. Because I made the picture.

Simple. Like a skull.

The picture. It’s pretty much as I described it. f5.6 and be there. I worked on it a little in post production. Mostly to hide its flaws. My photograph’s flaws. Not the skull’s. Shooting a little after noon, does not a great picture make. I knew that. But, sometimes… you have no choice.
