It’s been a busy few days, so I’ve not been able to post the Pictures of the Day for nearly a week. Here they are, in chronological order. As always, if you’d like to see more pictures, you can check out my Leftovers page on flickr. In the text below each picture, you’ll also find various links to pictures that I’ve taken and enjoyed over the past week, so feel free to click on those links, as well.
December 21, 2009: I took this with my new camera I got from Brad… it’s great, but I’m still learning the ropes! I chose this picture because when you look at the big version, you can actually see a (freaking) dog hair in Mary’s hand, and it looks like she’s using it to tickle Jesus. Seemed like a good justification for Picture of the Day.
December 22, 2009: Angela and I were walking in City Park with Dustin and Sam and we came across a sculpture. The sculpture itself was pretty cool, but then Dustin pointed out that this was written on one of the columns. Bummer.
December 23, 2009: Angela and I went sledding with my brother Paul (and his dog Iris) at Edora Park in Fort Collins… for about 15 minutes. It was pretty cold, actually, but still a good time before it got dark, windy, and freezing. I chose this one for Picture of the Day just because I liked the color.
December 24, 2009: As part of our traditional Family Christmas Eve Fondue Dinner, Paul made these little cut-outs for everyone as our place-cards. I’m on the left (the guy from Alien), and Angela (Helloooo, Kitty!) is looking on as a paper alien bursts out of my chest.
December 25, 2009: Nothing says “Christmas Cheer” like a new machete under the tree. I engraved this one for Paul with the Kill Bill inspired message: “To My Brother Paul, The Only Man I Ever Loved, -Ryan.” He liked it, and used it to guard the artichoke dip.
December 26, 2009: Today we saw some friends from high school, including Aaron McGrew and his fiancee Ashley. We went to their house in Fort Collins for coffee and, since it was built in 1904, the house was a great place for interesting Picture of the Day opportunities. This is actually an altimeter on their furnace. I’m not sure why one would have an altimeter on a furnace, but I’m also not sure why one would ride one of those weird old-fashioned bicycles with one giant wheel and one small one. Old stuff is weird that way.
So, the upcoming few days are also looking busy, but I’ll see about posting pictures. Rest assured, I’ll still be taking Pictures of the Day, but it may just take me a while to post them.
Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
