TWiP: Last week of May

I’m still participating in Picture Spring most days, so there are a lot of images again this week. I actually didn’t get around to taking a Project 365 picture one day, but I decided not to sweat it. It’s not like I shot nothing that day. I (or my camera) was just focused elsewhere.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…



365 📷: 2017 147/365 – The backyard is beginning to resemble one of those documentaries where they show you what the world would look like 10 years after all of the humans have gone.



365 📷: 2017 148/365 – For the holiday weekend, I’ve set my LIFX lights to the “Memorial Day” color scheme. It’s pretty intense…

365 📷: 2017 149/365 – This cat simply refuses to look up. I can’t stand here all day, so I guess the best I’m going to get is the top of his stubborn little head. [Taken at my parents’ house.]




365 📱: 2017 151/365 – I ordered dinner ahead (like WAY ahead at 3pm) and left myself a note so I didn’t forget to go pick it up on my way home from work. Spoiler alert: I remembered. It was delicious. [Taken at work.]



365 📱: 2017 152/365 – There are still a few peonies left, so I grabbed a handful for my desk at work, where I can enjoy them all day. [Taken at work.]



365 📱: 2017 153/365 – I feel like this one little picture kinda says a lot about me. All that’s missing is a cup of coffee… [Taken at work.]

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
