Observation about time/place/person. Hastily reached conclusion. Description of feelings towards Large Conceptual Simulation. Description of my surroundings, with detail to show that I was actually here in Paris/Reichenau/Boulder/Goa/Hanoi. Random thoughts about sunsets or Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Use. Periods. To. Emphasise. The. Concepts. Largely superfluous swear.

Thing that bothers me about Large Conceptual Simplification. People who might or might not read this, couched enough in vaugeness that they might not recognise themselves in the description but they might and maybe comment. Maybe I want them to, maybe I don’t. I’m in a noncommittal phase of this blog, this blog here. Generalisation. Perfectly honed swear. Confusion, couched in certainty. More. Periods. For. Emphasis.

I do this thing. I do that thing. I like this. I don’t like that. Short, to the point sentences to break up the otherwise mildly ridiculous length of sentence I tend to use, to the point of probably annoying my readers and confusing antecedents within the structures that I weave out of strange combinations of words that probably don’t go together, nonetheless hoping that all follow me on this brief digression. Non-superfluous swear, which readers probably agree with.

Unnecessarily left-wing political statement. Reference to random and likely unknown bit of history. Swear. Literary reference, equally obscure. Semi-swear.

Reversal, with a contentedness-inspiring photo to prove my own musings wrong, at least in my own head.

Deliberately open-ended nonconclusion.

The many painted colours of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo

We attempted to pull a real travel photographer’s day on Tuesday. Alarm at 3:30AM. To the first site at 5:00AM. Photos for a few hours. Then hotel to nap. Up at 3:00PM. To Lunch. Then to the Tre Cime di Lavaredo for the evening.

The following are shots that I took from about 18:00 to 00:00, with minimal editing. They are more or less from the same angle, and as the night went on things got really beautiful.

It was an incredible experience. I will post more photos soon, when I haven’t got a bus hangover from flying across the Alps in a Flixbus overnight.

More photography! MORE MORE MORE

I’m not really writing much these days again, but I take photos every day. I have a backlog to edit at least three weeks long, which means I still haven’t edited the ones from Hoi An in Vietnam nor the many from our short jaunt to London.

Here are some from a great hike the other day.

And a gallery of wildflowers here in the Alpine high summer.

More adventures soon.
