I realise that it’s been quite a while since I’ve last posted anything on any of my blogs, but I just want to share with you something that is of very sentimental value. They’re my shoes and socks from when I was a baby. My mama has just shown them to me, and when she asked if I wanted them, I said yes. The shoes and socks were purchased at the Sky City store in Thomasville, which has shut down 25 years ago.
Image the hell that we as photobloggers go through!
It’s been interesting to compare our shots, many of which were shot when we were almost literally shoulder to shoulder. A lot of the time, Ehpem was using a full frame DSLR and a wider lens than I had, a combination which made a surprising (to me) amount of difference in how much of a scene he could capture.

Anyway. The parking garage. Ehpem has been here before and was happy to return so I could have a look around. We were inside 20 or 30 minutes, and nothing very exciting had happened (other than making dozens of photos…

According to Engadget, NASA’s New Horizons probe has just taken its first snapshots of those new satellites, something of a miracle considering it was 55 million miles away and Styx is only 4 to 13 miles across. It required 10 second exposures from the probe’s sensitive Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) and copious image processing to reduce background glare, resulting in the animation above.
The photo is a sign of things to come, as New Horizons will carry on toward Pluto until it it passes within about 10,000 km (6,200 miles) of the dwarf planet around July 14th this year. At that point, it’ll map out Pluto’s surface and study its largest moon, Charon, which is actually about half the diameter of Pluto. It’ll also search for evidence of cryo-geysers that scientists think could be active on Charon. The probe will produce the highest resolution images yet…

Words don’t mean anything
Narration went abruptly mute
soul was denied the truth
blatant lies uttered, none refute
True warriors broke slaved pens
their blood screamed, enemies rattle
redemption was near, felt closer
fortitude won emotions battle
