Seems every few decades the World goes batshit crazy. Just long enough to forget the last time the World went batshit crazy.

Rarely I'll link to another social media site, it's warranted. Wake the fuck up.

Patchouli Clove Soap
One with ground dried cloves. :)

Olive oil, coconut oil, hemp oil, patchouli and clove essential oils, red oxide for color, but doesn't look like I added enough, and a teaspoon of dried ground cloves in one of the soap molds.

I really should try to make the tops prettier. :D

Inspired by a friend's star trail image, I thought I'd give it a brief try last night when photographing lightning bugs (fireflies) failed.
This is the result, processed in Photoshop, then cleaned up a little in Pixlr because the hot pixels looked awful.
So much noise in this image.
But now I know I can do it!
Next time I'll allocate enough time to do it right... More trails, less noise!

Excited!

Rose of Sharon
My daughter and I went into the edge of the neighbor's yard to get this shot, and of course as I go to take the photo... wind, typical. This is the only shot where the bloom is completely in frame. :) It was a warm afternoon so I'm thankful for the wind, but really... right when I frame the shot?! :)

Happy Friday!

Thanks to +Alvaro Gonzalez​ for the identification. :)

My own biophony recordings
Relating to my earlier post where I shared a Nautilus article, I'll frequently use my phone to record the sounds around me when I'm outdoors. When I was taking photos of lightning bugs, then trying to photograph star trails, I had my smartphone there, recording the sounds around me. They were loud, and I've uploaded them to my +SoundCloud account, link provided here.

My time outdoors is an immersive experience, so this article was really exciting to read. Not only is it about what I see, and sometimes capture (and share) via photography or videography, but it's also about the scents in the woods, the sounds around me, the different textures of the leaves or tree bark, the air can change from humid-hot to a refreshing cool. It's nice to stop, be still, and listen, breathe deep the aroma, feel the sun or shade on your skin, and of course take photos. I often record the sounds around me, thank goodness for smartphones. :)

Biophony
Take a walk in the woods and you’ll almost certainly be soothed by birdsong and trilling streams and wind whispering in treetops. But when you get home, you’ll likely be asked: What did you see?

Each animal occupies a unique frequency bandwidth, fitting into available auditory space like pieces in an exquisitely precise puzzle. It’s a simple but striking phenomenon

“The biophony is the pure expression of life, of the given organisms in a habitat,” he says. “When you’re in a healthy habitat, all the species are able to find bandwidth where their voices fit.”

The traditional approach of bioacoustics, focusing on single animals and species, is anathema. It’s “decontextualizing and fragmenting,” he says, like trying to extract a single violin from Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. “Take an instrument out of the performance, and try to understand the whole performance, and you don’t get very much,” he says.

This article was originally published in Nautilus' “Feedback” issue in April, 2014.

One of most immediately striking features about Bernie Krause is his glasses. They’re big—not soda-bottle thick, but unusually…

Forgot this morning's update.
No raccoons overnight, however a Pokemon has pooped in front of the mailbox, I didn't get a photo as I was leaving for work. For some reason there are a lot of Pokemon on the street, I think I should trap those instead of this mommy raccoon and her babies.

At lunch I thought I'd check the laws, again.. I checked a week ago, then I also see that in addition to people asking what kentucky raccoon laws are, they would also like to know Is it legal to own a pet monkey in Indiana? Neato.

These are gross.

Also, I've not taken many photos lately! I need some photo-therapy. :)
