I Stole This But They Didn't Try To Shoot Me

I took a picture of this sign, "robbed them", but no one noticed, so there was no shooting. 
At least at me. 
While I was there.

My Bud-get Plan Is Working

My bud-get plan is working. I don't know what all the fuss is about President Obama and his fancy thick blue book that I saw on teleBision today. His blue book bud-get doesn't look like mine, and my buds are turning into blooms! His flowers appear to be much more eXpensive than mine.

There are about 19 buds in the "bud get-ing" process on this round of orchid branch growth, with 4 blooms so far. I almost lost this plant to a repotting process. I believe I will try a new approach that recycles all the old branches and blooms, and then slowly add a few pieces of fresh orchid potting mix progressively on top of the old. No more major disruptions! I think this plant is around two years old, and has bloomed with fresh branch growth about 4 times, and has had a total of at least 9 leaves.

This was the first bloom of this season of buds

My Closet

My Shirts

I spent about an hour setting up this shot, cleaning the junk off the top shelf, and finding just the right spot that I wanted to place the camera. I used a tripod. There was very little indirect natural sunlight from the west window outside the closet. I normally keep my shirts equidistantly spaced, but this time I used a physical device to accurately space them. I did not use a flash. Photo was taken with tight aperature and long shutter time, I'll see if I can find that info. I think I spent about a half hour doing the actual shooting.

This photo was taken at my old house. At my current residence my shirt closet has a double rainbow. The shirts that I currently use are in one rainbowed sequence on the west side of the closet while there is another section of brand new shirts on the east.
