B-Team Mug Shots. October 26, 2011

Here’s a slightly sorry line-up of Usual Suspects who didn’t quite make the cut – photos which have sat around long enough on my desktop so that it’s time to either use ’em or lose ’em.  They’re not my best work, but just as we Plain Folk deserve to find happiness, these photos ought to be seen before being recycled.

A riverside granite outcrop in NH:

Wet Paint taken not far from there:

That NH She-moose in a casual moment of herbaceous bliss:

And another framing of North Pond in Savoy:

There.  Now I can clear these stragglers off of my desktop without feeling like I abandoned my children without acknowledging them.

Lovely moose.

She was indeed a sexy beast, as we all strive to be. 😉

I am jealous that you got to see a moose. How close were you?

The boulders in the last photo look creatures about to push off and swim away.

I wish my best work was as good as your worst. Completely dig that leaf shot.

I love Wet Paint, too. The colors are brilliant.

Gina, between thirty and forty feet. I got behind a roadwork barrel and walked straight toward her undetected, then poked Gizmo around the side and snapped away as she ate leaves in the rain.

I wish you could have been there, you would have loved it.

Lisa, yeah, like whales breaching, making the turn toward that far shore.

Randal, my worst efforts get deleted. I wouldn’t inflict them on you nice people. These are decent photos without a compelling message, though I’m in love with that sexy moose.

eileen, this was such a rainy weekend that most of these shots were hand-held, and many were from the driver’s seat of my car. This is one of those, and would have been better had I set up a tripod.

The colors are nice though; they’re the reason I stopped for this photo.

All gorgeous. Did you know I’ve *never* seen a moose? Sigh.

On a separate note, I’m slightly torn between appreciating your sympathy for art and your likening tossing these shots to ABANDONING YOUR OWN CHILDREN. Ahem 😉

Sweetie, we don’t see many moose here at home, and you won’t in Boston either – I guess seeing them depends on spending a lot of time wandering around where they wander around!

As for tossing photos, they’re my creations (albeit not really important) and I’m a wee tad “retentive.” I hope you weren’t offended by my hyperbole. I’ll call. ❤

I’m glad you chose to show them before stowing them. The wet leaves one is very pretty but I must admit an attraction for the moose lady. She looks so content.

11. littlebangtheory - October 29, 2011

Indeed, susan, she’s totally at ease, aloof to the curiosity of us puny humans. And as long as there’s enough food and the weather isn’t desperate, life must be pretty good for such a large being, without predators except in hunting season (which part saddens me greatly.)
