I'm liking your candids of young people, which are very nicely captured and show their personalities and relationships so well. This series is especially pertinent in light of the serious work teens are doing in organizing for reasonable gun controls in the wake of the Florida tragedy.

I may get dinged for posting this in two places, but it is the only photo I was able to take today, so I am dropping it here in 365 and in Adventures in Wonderland, as well. Matt

Well spotted, and yes it belongs in both series! Like that you kept it in color.

#19: A Selfie in a Security Camera

How dumb is this! While the bride was having an Xray, I stood in the hallway and yielded to the devil in me. I wonder whether anyone was monitoring the monitor. And whether I am not the first to try this prank. No one came in search but I suspect I may now be in some mugshot database. If I vanish, you will know why.

Ha! You shoulda spun the wheel to get Selfie this week! The security guys are probably studying up on you right now.

Thanks Minnie. Now that the bride and I are showing less flexibility in getting into and out of sedans, we got a Toyota Highlander. Tried the RAV, but, when we ran over a nickel, we could tell whether it was heads or tails. With the H, it felt like a $5 bill. So, we sprung for the cushy ride. Spending our kids' inheritance. After a 10 hour drive yesterday, we are back in MD. Searching for the camera. Matt

Thanks Minnie. We oldies need to encourage and support the younger ones, but, more importantly, open doors and "...send (their) roots rain."

(Minnie, if you don't know his work, let me recommend Gerard Manley Hopkins and the poem, "Thou art indeed just..." )

Matt's 365: #21, Kettle On

At the Brewster Swap Shop, this stove serves as the heart. I don't think they use the kettle but it makes for a good photo op.

Matt's 365: #22: Is this what humans look like to a woodpecker?

On my morning walk in the woods, I noticed this etching in the tree "waving" to me. Friendly little chap, I thought. On closer viewing, it seemed to be the work of a woodpecker. Or maybe it is a trail marker for visitors from another world. Or maybe something else. Maybe. Matt

#21 - I would not have been able to take that pic without requesting removal of the garbage can :)

#22 - the processing is super on this feast of textures and lines. As always, your humor is laigniappe :)
