Perfectly Timed Photos, Part Two

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

Welcome to part two of this short series of perfectly timed photos, where the click of the camera caught that perfect moment in time.

I would hazard a guess that most of these were taken accidentally, but however they were done the results are good.

Enjoy today’s selection

Photographs Or Optical Illusions?

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

From time to time I publish photographs on this blog. That isn’t it’s primary purpose, but sometimes they fall into the unusual or exceptional categories that contrast with posts about the more intellectually challenged members of our society.

See what you make of this selection.

Enjoy.

Further Furry Fun!

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

I feel a bit of a Sunday Sermon coming on, if I get the time to write it.

But for today something a lot lighter and hopefully amusing.

It’s a second helping of our animal friends. They are fun.

Enjoy.

Signs That All Is Not Well

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

If you run a business, especially one that involves selling to the public, then the one thing you really want is a memorable stand out sign to advertise your location.

But… and it’s a big BUT.. you want them to be memorable and stand out for the right reasons.

How do you think this lot did?

Enjoy.

Hubble, Bubble, Toil And…………..Some Really Great Photographs!

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

When I was a kid one of the things I loved to do was to go over to my cousin’s house at night during the winter months when it was dark. He lived out in the country on a farm – and he had a telescope. It wasn’t an expensive one, but it was a lot better than anything I, or any of my friends, had so to me it was great.

Many evenings we spent looking at the moon and the stars. It fascinated me then and it fascinates me to this day.

I never did get a telescope of my own. For one thing anything decent was always a lot more than I could afford when I was a kid and for another as I grew up so did the town where I lived. To the extent that there was so much ambient light from street lights, lights in houses and buildings etc., that there was very little left to see.

When I was in Las Vegas I did make a few trips well out into the Nevada desert which provided some fantastic results. You really have no idea just how many stars are out there until you can view them from somewhere very remote. (BTW, I think what I saw were all stars, but with Area 51 and all that, you’re never really sure. Cue some Twilight Zone music!)  

So how much better would it be if you had  telescope actually out there in space?

Well for the past few years we have, and it’s a LOT better as you will see.

But enough of an intro from me. There are other bloggers who can write with much more knowledge and passion about these things, such as Alex at Things I love, so I’ll sign off and let you look at some of the Hubble photographs that I though were worth sharing.

And whether you believe in Creation or that it is all the chaotic result of a big fart that came from nowhere, enjoy the wonder and beauty of what is out there.

This Is Too Dog Gone Funny!

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

Yesterday’s post was a bit heavy going. So today, a little bit of light relief for you.

I’ve mentioned a few times before that I am very fond of dogs. They are great loyal companions and usually very protective of their family.

I have a strong preference for German Shepherds which are well known as being courageous, intelligent, watchful, confident and alert. I would argue that they not only have these attributes, but are also highly intelligent AND also look quite elegant as well.

But there are a multitude of different breeds out there and they all have their followers.

I wonder can the owners of these breeds say the same thing?

Enjoy.

Just a short post this Sunday. Something that a friend emailed to me a little while ago that I thought was worth sharing. If you have seen it before, my apologies, if you haven’t, I think it is worth a look.

Clever Celebrity Caricatures

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

 .

As most of you know, the main focus of this blog is on the stupidity of the politicians and bureaucrats who do all that they can to make our lives less enjoyable and free than they could be without such unwanted and idiotic interference.

Occasionally, however, I like to feature quite the opposite, things and people who are exceptional in their chosen field, whether that be science, sport, engineering, music or whatever.

Today’s post is one of the latter and is a wonderful selection of caricatures that I received in a recent email. Unfortunately I don’t know the names of the exceptional artists who did these drawings, otherwise I would be more than happy to acknowledge them. Nonetheless I think as wide an audience as possible deserves to be able to view their work and what follows I hope will be a small part of that.

Enjoy, I think you will. And if you feel the urge please let me know you favorite or favorites.
