Home now.  Well, J.’s home.  The title?

Last year when we went up to the observatory he made some comment about the loony or crazy drive/car.  I can’t remember but it had to do with all three of us covering a significant number of diagnoses that make us nuts.  However, his friend B. who drove us there isn’t diagnosed with anything.  At least not to my knowledge–or J.’s either, I believe.  J. had told me prior that everyone “suspects” some OCD/Tourette’s business.  Well, I certainly have to agree.  He’s got some major tic’ing going on, that’s for sure! Pretty anxious too.  Some odd behavioural things as well?

Then there’s J. who is dx’d with Depression and can’t sleep so he’s on meds.

Then there’s me with all of my crap.  If you don’t know me or if you are a new reader, you can have a look at my About Page.  Or if you are feeling lazy: ADD Inattentive Type, Asperger’s, Bipolar II (although, I am an Ultradian Cycler–therefore I feel it should be Bipolar NOS) Epilepsy and Migraines.  I’m still on the fence about the Post-Traumatic Stress.  I was given that dx. from a doctor in the ER when some fucktard gave me a concussion (also dx’d in the ER) and there was a lawsuit pending.  The investigation and pending lawsuit? Dropped.  “Me vs. Them” situation, basically.

I think I’ll leave the PTS off the map.  I’ve obviously got enough going on as it is.  Although, I could have it anyway and it has just never been dx’d at all!

Oh, I also have GERD but that’s a tummy issue.

I am utterly and completely dusted.  Screw Pink Floyd.  I am Uncomfortably Numb!

I’m going to bake out here for a while.  A long while.  I may even stay overnight but The Horror! I don’t know if I can stand another couch! But I’m soooo exhausted! Whine…whine…whine…  I’m sorry, I just can’t help it! Serious whine time.


Indeed, it has still been cloudy and raining all night at the observatory.  However, I did manage to take two shots that I would like to show you.

After one downpour, we actually had a full arch rainbow! However, don’t get too excited.  Those are so hard to photograph–at least with PAs Digital SLR! Absolutely! Or even many or any a camera! Their spread can be so massive! Not to mention, they don’t last that long.

So here is the best one, of the last, final, disappearing portion of the rainbow.

So what do you think?

So what do you think?

I tried to capture it in the best way possible with the contrast of the dark sky to bring out the colours of the spectrum even more.  Then, something more interesting happened.  Clouds started to drift around the landscape so I played a bit with that as quickly as I could so here, you will see some clouds above the trees.

I am not a fan of photographing “landscapes” and what not however…

…I won’t be too harsh a judge in certain circumstances?

I don’t like to toot my own horn.  In fact, I don’t even think I have a horn to toot, except for some, cheap thing someone gave me at a New Year’s Eve Party years ago that was only made of cardboard.

But still.  I took this shot just fucking around because there was nothing else to do.  I was surprised, though.  And again…not much into “horn tooting” but I kind of like this.  The sun was setting at a certain point in time, therefore the colours and the clouds, refractions, reflections…? All different, so many variables.  J. even said I should use it as wallpaper for my computer! ACK!

What can I say?

What can I say?

Neither of these photos have been “touched.”  I’ve just uploaded them and plopped them onto my blog.  But this one? As the rollover I made…Ominous Sky? That’s it.  Sunset and cloud patterns and light.  Due to distance and settings, I did need some assistance via my flash but none of these pictures have been digitally altered in any way.

So…”some sky?” At least.
