Just chillin’…

… in the window of a temple many hundreds of years old… I’m not sure what the these two were doing, except just hanging out… They were there when I arrived, and they were there when I left… And only slightly perturbed at the interruption of a tall westerner… Unlike so many children I saw at the Angkor Wat experience, these two weren’t all that interested in shaking down this tourist… Just chillin’… At just one more temple out in the jungles of Cambodia…   Maybe they were seeing into their future, and maybe knowing about this post, some seven years into their future, and realizing it was written on this, the 402nd anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, and possibly, the 454th anniversary of the birth of the best-selling fiction author of all time…?   Naw… Just chillin’…          

It’s getting closer…

… to an actual, honest-to-goodness, by-god semblance of Spring around here… By which I mean the average temperature has inched up a few degrees, on average… It’s still too cold for any extended time outdoors, without standing under anything less than a burning man celebration… But the spring astrophotography season is creeping ever closer. I can’t wait… Gonna try my hand at some DSO’s this year. That’s deep space objects, for those of you who don’t reside quite as far off-planet as I do. Meanwhile, a picture from the high plains of California’s Yosemite National Park… Just looking at it makes me thirsty…
