Fall Colors-in fresh and cripsy clean 5.2

The reds and yellows speak for themselves

The pine don't lose their leaves because they never surrender to the bitter wind and frigid temperatures
I miss Portland despite the hippies

Today so far I have managed to get out of bed early using my new method of having the coffee maker on my bed side table ready for action!

When I went outside for some fresh air with my coffee... behold I saw a really nice sunrise from my deck so I snapped a couple of shots featured below! A great start to the day :) I enjoyed the rays of cancerous light being hindered by water vapor muahahahahaha...

Then I chopped some of my clients grass… Here at Nellist lawn care we are the best, so it’s only natural that your lawn will turn out looking like a U.S. Masters golf green. I chopped it curving toward the house this looks a lot more pleasing to the eye and also makes the lawn seem bigger.

I like to think of the grass as a blank canvas upon which I am free to create a master piece! I love my own propaganda it’s a lot more convincing than most he he... now I will try and contact my super beautiful girl friend.... sigh

Yesterday I had a very productive day at school we discussed the “magic hour” in filmmaking and I posted my schoolwork so you can see what I have already gained from this class so far. It was so stressful with all that work going on that I almost forgot to pick up Alyssa from school…

My Schoolwork… I have decided to name my creation "Crazy Crow says BAGHA!!" I think maybe I will turn it in to a series of children’s books about the Crazy Crow and all of his adventures he he

After Class the Dutch man and I went fishing and had a few drinks on Cedar Lake. It sprinkled with rain a little but was nice and warm. No fish this time… well the Dutch man caught a small Bass but no luck in the search for the elusive/delicious Walleye. Better luck next time... BAGHA!!

The summer is ending

The summer is ending... school has started, the fire flies are gone and the air tonight just smells like fall. Its cool and refreshing after the hot weather but something inside me feels sad that those summer nights will be gone, replaced with bitterly cold wind and snow ugh... that isn't here yet though there’s at least one more month to enjoy the great lakes splendor he he...Me under water hmm... I took these photos a few weeks ago but never put them up... until now!!
Shallow water at the Barton lake boat launch, I liked the ripples in the sand. Below, me blowing out an air bubble he he...
How to water proof your camera: 1. Take a gallon sized zip lock baggy 2. Insert camera 3. Seal the bag with air trapped inside so if you let go it floats! (This is probably the most important step) 4. Place under water and snap away!! When taking a photo hold the bag tight against the lens otherwise the photo will be blurry, it gets a little blurry anyway but hey… Also I don't recommend doing this and accept no responsibility if you drown your camera!! I try and keep the camera as shallow as possible in the water preferably not letting the zipper on the bag even go under... Bingo!! your very own underwater camera!! Enjoy!!

styx ... we head to the ocean this weekend! camping out under the stars

I'm sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
Ive got to be free, free to face the life thats ahead of me
On board, Im the captain, so climb aboard
Well search for tomorrow on every shore
And Ill try, oh lord, Ill try to carry on

I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But well try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said
They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise
They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies
Singing come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

A Brief Record Of Shenanigans and Stupidity...

I know I promised more frequent updates which will happen however, I just got back from the Upper peninsula of Michigan where I was staying on Drummond Island for a few days just relaxing drinking too much and not showering.
When I was there Dan and I were fortunate enough find the night sky clear and beautiful every night. Due to the lack of city light we were able to see a great many things with Dan’s telescope, looking at the moon through it was truly amazing especially when I found that the majestic 5.2 was able to take photos through the telescopes lens, not the best quality I will admit but the fact that we spent a good hour trying to take a photo worthy of even looking at is a testament to our greatness!
There was one point at night when we heard a low growl for a few minutes, which freaked us out because there are supposedly 100 bears on that Island! I personally was more worried that it was a crazy Canadian! Being that close to Canada is worrying enough!! After this we promptly took action by drinking more beer to avoid a sober death at the hands of a grizzle bear! Luckily nothing came of this but just to be safe we drank more.

This photo didn't work out because the flash went off but I kind of like the effect it created what do you think?

While there I decided we should go fishing, the locals said the best fishing was next to some dock near us however, I was of the mind that the water was too shallow to catch anything worth my time and besides I told the lady in the fishing shop that I wanted a lure for catching Pike she was snotty and said “ there’s nothing that big in this lake so good luck with that,” I was of course thinking this is lake Huron ridiculous local. Why is it that anywhere you go in the countryside the locals always think they know best when in fact people from the city know best this is why when I was catching Pike while they were crammed around a dock catching nothing!! So Dan and I proceeded to the mouth of lake Huron were I though fish would be plentiful given the deep water and prime location. Sure enough after only a couple casts I caught a Pike. The proof is in the photos! I caught two approximately 20 inch pike, I did release the biggest one back in to the wild however the next one I got was a fraction smaller and the hook had unfortunately fatally wounded him so I thought it only right to eat him and he was delicious!
I was right and the locals were WRONG! Us city folk always know best silly buffoons muahaha ha ha… after proving we were right we though it best to keep every camp fire raging all night long to contribute to the pollution on the island!
That concluded our amazing adventure so enjoy the photos…

The Pike above was the bigger one he was pissed and bite a hole in the net!! Below the smaller one

Shooting Stars

Well I am finally updating my blog!! I will do this more often now but I had problems uploading photos. My blog without photos would be like a book with out pictures and honestly who reads the book when there are pretty pictures to distract you! Anyhow the mighty 5.2 always takes the best photos :P and from now on, frequent updates now that I can actually upload stuff.
I love the Shooting Star Lilly featured below they need to make its fragrance a cologne, that would be delightful! Recently I have suffered the constant urge to listen to the Smashing Pumpkins while drinking coffee! Tomorrow more photos and less talk, :)

West Michigan Lake Monster Attacks Local Residents!!

Today mostly work until late after noon when a Dutch man picked me up on his boat! Upon crossing the lake we went through a small channel leading to the next lake. When arriving in the next lake we saw a family of swan. I got some photos of family and the male hanging behind to ward us off.
After this we fled back to the channel and safety or so I thought however, when entering the channel we were attacked a beast so furious that the boat almost capsized… upon which time we saw the evil creature swimming at speed, straight ahead! All hands on deck!! Evil creature 12 at o’clock… wait… thankfully the evil creature was distracted by a lily pad, which he was stealing from our lake!! I reacted to this blatant attack on my ego with a counter strike that included a paddle. I was fast and my actions noble however he was the swifter man so my cameras eye was not adapted to handle this monstrosity. I posted the photo anyway so you can see a glimpse of its true and terrible nature!
After this scare we decided to stay in deep water away from this monsters habitat until the sun went down. I got the last photo back on the dock away from the water and the terrors it holds.
Well I vote same thing again tomorrow. This time we shall bring beer to fend off this threat to national security!

Do you realize swans are together for life ;) and there is an ugly duckling in there too!

Evidence of the ‘Evil Beast’ that attacked us then fled with his prize

Pretty blue ripples in the deep waters
