No, frogs are not lazy, even as transplanted extra-dimensional beings (gnomes) knocked into this plane of existence and manifested as eggs and then tadpoles and then frogs, but for some reason this picture reminded me of this song.

OK … here it is …
I was looking for something else and discovered this post which never published as scheduled, so I’m publishing it now. It reminds me of California painter Richard Diebenkorn.
Do you remember Louise Fryer? Who got married and became Louise Whiting? She was the It Girl of iphoneography for a while. A gorgeous woman who did amazing selfies along with other kinds of work. She was quite a character, too. She’s completely fallen off the map.
I tried to contact her a while ago regarding a project I was working on, never heard back. Oh well, many other stories like that in the world of iPhone photography. I actually think Facebook and its groups and the insane behavior of some people on there have driven a lot of people into hiding, or retirement.
I was updating the galleries on my personal website and realized I had quite a body of work in the Sun King series. I thought I would share them. They are scattered, individually, throughout Pixels, but I kind of like having them all in one gallery.
If you have a gallery or grouping of images you would like to share here, let me know.
Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years caring for patients during the last 12 weeks of their lives, during which time she asked her patients about “any regrets they had or anything they would do differently.”
The patients responded with great clarity as they reminisced. Ware shared the commonalities in her book, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying: A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing.
The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.
- I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
- I wish I hadn’t worked so much.
- I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
- I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
- I wish that I had let myself be happier.
Now, please pour a coffee or tea and consider the regrets you don’t have to have at the end of your life …
Ólafur Arnalds – improvisations
Mauro Neyt, who posted this video, had this to say about it:
For 2 years I kept this for myself. Now I let go this beautifully, emotional music. I’ve recorded this in Ghent, Belgium, on his ‘An evening with ÓA’-tour, where he improvised to get new ideas for a new record. The pictures were submitted by fans on his Tumblr, inspired by his latest album. I have arranged the photos as the way it feels to get homogeneous with the music. All pictures, artwork and design: http://olafurarnaldsart.tumblr.com/ Please (oh please) listen to my similar music: http://pillowfilmours.bandcamp.com/ (Editor’s note: his music is lovely)
