The last picture I took was from a train I was riding on that had struck a person and that person died.
As we sat waiting for the various agencies involved to finish their work and clear us to go, people who lived in that area got as close as they could to us and started to take pictures of the person’s remains.
They ran around with their cameras, they looked through the bushes and you could see them wave their arms around in excitement when they saw something.
This picture is of one of the lookie loos who stood on a log with his food in one hand and directed people to body parts with the other.
I’m kind of surprised this is the last picture I have taken for awhile but maybe that’s because I’m really not in humans right now.
Teeth clenched, lips pulled back into a grimace- his MAGA cap planted firmly on his head.
This photo was taken at a rally calling for the recall of a Snohomish County Sheriff:
( Briefly )
Snohomish County Sheriff Fortney has reinstated officers that were deemed to have made unconstitutional searches by the previous sheriff. He reinstated another officer that committed an unjustified shooting leading to the death of an Edmonds man.
In addition he has declared that the Governor’s stay at home order is unconstitutional
So at this rally to recall the Sheriff, a Trump Supporter went up to a group of protestors and stuck his face near theirs and breathed on them.
He did it because he feels it is his right to spread a virus that could kill someone, he did it because he wants his America back.
He did it to make his President proud and I am pretty sure he has.
Cee posted some Funny finds at her site and heaven knows I have tons of those myself, so I decided to post some fun finds instead- and in searching I came across these articles about the first in photographs.
These are a selection of photographic firsts- first selfie, first picture of the Sun the picture of lighting and the first hoax.
I’ve also included a clip of the earliest recording of music to exist.
I think it’s fun to look back on these- enjoy!
RobertCornelius- first self portrait photograph. Taken in 1839 and even though it is a selfie he managed to keep his tongue in his mouth.
First Hoax Photo and it did not rely on photoshop!
” Self Portrait of a drowned man”. 1840, France.
First Photograph of the sun.
1845 Paris, France
First photograph of lighting.
1882, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, USA
This is the earliest recording of music known to exist.
In 1888 a recording of Arthur Sullivan’s song ‘The Lost Chord’ was etched onto a phonograph cylinder.
What if I gave you the skinny on some pictures I took, stripped away the distractions ( like color ) and told you a little story about each one?
I’d be glad to.
Fox Lake, Wisconsin– I thought this would make a great opening shot for a horror movie. Why? Because that’s how my mind works. That’s why.
Here’s the skinny. Someone died next to the tracks and when I took the picture I had no idea that had happened. I just saw a bunch of police cars and was going to send the picture to my friends who used to scam free parking down here and freak them out into thinking they were all going to get towed.
LOL on me I guess.
Anubis at the King Street Station in Seattle. He was there for the King Tut exhibit a few years ago. Anubis is gone and in his place is something called a ” sanitation station ” for the homeless people so they can have a place to clean up a bit and try to avoid spreading the coronavirus among their community.
I thought you’d rather see the picture of Anubis instead of one of a well maintained port-a-potty and a hand washing station. If not, well. Ugh on you.
