Photos for February

Neither politics nor Covid-19.

I finally caught up with organizing my February photos for Project366. Here’s the mosaic:

Project 366 February

Clearly, less themed than January.

    A lot of nice pics, I’m rather partial to the park bench. I am always drawn to lonely photos. The cloud pic below it is stunning in it’s contrasts.

    That first candle pic, what is that one flame refracting through?

  2. @OzarkHillbilly: It’s a small crystal ball.

    (And thanks).

    My fave is still orangutan with bowl on head.

    The facial expression just kills me.

  4. OzarkHillbilly says:

    @de stijl: I like it (more than a little) too.

  5. OzarkHillbilly says:

    @Steven L. Taylor: You are a good photographer. By which I don’t mean technically proficient or anything like that. I am not knowledgeable enough to say about those things. But you are not afraid to explore the medium, to try new things. And what is more, put them up for the world to criticize. I admire that, it takes courage.

    Probably anthropomorphizing, but I understand the situation.

    You have done something bold, but now that everyone’s eyes are on you, you cannot help but think that I probably made the wrong call, but to back away now would be lame and read as cowardly.

    My original take was basically “After boldly exhibiting attention-seeking behavior realized you were underprepared for the attention.”

    I feel the anxiety.

    That orangutan went for it. Then regretted doing so.

    @de stijl: 😉 As an overt introvert, I empathize. I remember well going to festivals provocatively dressed (meaning only that it was hard not to notice me in my loud clothing) and getting all kinds of female attention, which was good, and intentional… until they got bored with me, which was a real let down.

    Just another boy toy, and a rather disappointing one at that.

  8. de stijl says:

    It’s a photo of an orangutan with a bowl on his or her head.

    Yet we can read so much into it. I immediately empathized.
