My recent Instagram photos

I’ve been too busy to get my recent Instagram shots posted here.

It’s probably time to investigate plugins for automatically grabbing my Instagram shots and posting them here. Last time I looked, the plugin pulled over a small image. Since then, Instagram has increased the size of photos it stores. Maybe the plugin has followed suit.

Update. I installed Instagrate to see whether it’s something I want to use. Not right now, but it sounds like an update that supports larger pictures and the new Instagram API will arrive before June. I can’t wait.

Monday

Q: What do Oregonians call a sunny day after two days rain?
A: Monday.

Although this applies today, who am I to complain? Today is beautiful!

Puffy

Riding home through Dawson Creek Park, I stopped to admire some clouds.

This picture is currently my desktop image, blog background, and Facebook and Twitter header images.

Signal Post

After taking the picture of the oak tree, I left my camera hanging on its strap around my neck as a continued biking home. Wouldn’t you know, I had to stop for a red light. So I did what I normally do with my camera: take a picture of a pole.

Pole

During lunch, I have been biking over to inspect the construction on Brookwood Parkway and NW Huffman Street.1 There is a new industrial park going in north of Huffman and Brookwood is being widened to include more lanes, bike lanes, and sidewalks. Just this week, all the trees along the sides and in the median were removed.

This pole at the east end of Huffman attracted my attention. More specifically, the weights on the right side that direct the connections between the lines. I don’t think I’ve seen weights used like this before, so I will start looking for other poles using them.2


  1. This is also where the new transmission line was installed late last year. 
  2. I don’t believe any of the many pictures of power poles here have such weights.

Umbrella sky

It would appear that Punxsutawney Phil is wrong this year. I mowed my lawn yesterday … in shorts! Today, the weather continues its blue streak.

Wing Over City

I thought the flight home yesterday evening was going to be too late/dark to take any good pictures. Maybe it was…

Friday Sky

Yeah, I’m posting another sky shot. It’s blue!

For some reason, I’m reminded of Vince Lombardi’s quote, “When you get into the end zone, act like you’ve been there before.” Welcome to the end zone.
