The right two people, the right conversation, and these chairs wouldn't be so reserved.

The hand that feeds

One of the attractions at the #NCZoo  is the Acacia Station Observation Deck, which places you eye-level with giraffes and lets you feed them tasty leaves of lettuce. This was the first time that I'd seen the station open with a giraffe hanging about, so of course I shelled out my $2 and got to hang out with seventeen foot tall Jack, who was incredibly pleased to slurp down salad from anyone with a leaf and an outstretched hand.

Yard check: the next generation

If it looks like Pierce went on a diet, it's because I'm pretty sure this is a new adolescent rabbit who's been hanging around my yard lately.

Dorothea Clix

Some years ago, I guessed that the campus of the now-decommissioned Dorothea Dix Hospital would be a good venue from which to capture photographs of the 4th of July fireworks juxtaposed with the Raleigh skyline. A little scouting gave me the evidence I needed, and tonight, I discovered what a few hundred people apparently knew -- that it's a fantastic spot to view the festivities.

The more things change

The recent move by Google to separate Photos from Google+ appears to have broken the existing Google+ Photos posting functionality. If I upload a photo to an album, clicking Add just results in a modal mask/loading indicator which never goes away. No more automatic sharing to Google+ after uploading a picture.

The obvious workaround would be to use the new Photos interface to upload the photograph, but my sharing options appear to be limited to the entire album -- which does not highlight the new entry -- or selecting the individual photograph and sharing -- which creates a new copy of the photograph in Photos from Posts (and does not let users browse the rest of the album if they open the photo in the viewer).

The last time Google+ broke this workflow, I gave up posting pictures until it was fixed. I'm ready to do that again, but I'm less sanguine about the chances that the old workflow will be restored.

I just do my uploading through posting now, and when I add a photo to a post, I am able to select which album that photo needs to be added to. Uploading directly to Google Photos is not at all intuitive and requires a huge number of steps, it seems to me. Not worth using that for upload. I  like to think of the Google Photos as simply being a repository for what you uploaded elsewhere. Google Plus Photos still seems to work great.

Wet willy

I was incredibly glad to see that not only is the gorilla habitat open again at the #NCZoo , but they've also added some new inhabitants: a silverback male (Mosuba), an adult female (Rosie), and an adolescent male (Hadari).

This one made me laugh.  Worth the wait to see what you came up with.

Stop, children, what's that sound

My backyard receives many visitors. Perhaps some are less friendly than others.

Chillin'

I haven't seen Pierce hanging around my lawn much this year. Apparently, he's been escaping the oppressive summer heat in my nice shady azaleas.
