I take a lot of photographs. I have almost 48,000 of them on Flickr and I am adding more all the time from my “good” camera, my point and shoot, my Ipod, and cell phone plus I scan in my film photos and I’m in the process of scanning in lots of pics from our family shoebox archive.
So I don’t remember taking this shot of Joe Perry’s guitar at the Tulsa History Museum almost four years ago. I do remember the exhibit, kind of. (Joe Perry is the lead guitarist of Aerosmith.) I have never been much of an Aerosmith fan but I do respect their music. I just don’t like it very much.
I rediscovered this when I was searched my Flickr feed for 7364 which is this week’s number in Gaelyn’s Foto Friday Fun. I know that it is Tuesday, not Friday, but that is the way it worked out this week for me.
This is from my first trail race ever. The 2011 version of the Tatur Run on Turkey Mountain held on November 6. I had forgotten how pretty the woods were.
I’m participating in Foto Friday Fun sponsored by Gaelyn.
Logan, a few years ago, about to test himself in an arcade game where you see how long you can stand a little tickle of electricity. I don’t know how long he took it but he is a tough guy. He considerably bigger now.
I’m linking with Foto Friday Fun by Gaelyn, my favorite seasonal Park Ranger. Go check it out. A number is given every week and then you search your photo archives to find a photo with the same number. I cheated this week because I didn’t like the results of the number I was supposed to use.
I cheat a lot, especially on blog memes. Does that bother you?
Fellow blogger Gaelyn has a interesting meme called “Foto Friday Fun” where she provides a number for participants to search their archives with in search of photographs. This week’s number is 72 and this is one of the pics that popped up. It is a fish (I have no idea what kind of fish) from a visit to the Oklahoma Aquarium back in 2010. I think the fish is checking me out as much as I was looking at him. I love aquariums and ours is pretty good.

Well the number for Foto Friday Fun this week is 6387 and so this fuzzy pic of a bull and rider comes up. It was from a Professional Bull Riding event here in Tulsa a few years ago. Logan and I had free tickets and so we went. The PBR is not like like your local rodeo. This is like Bull Riding on steroids. Unlike the local rodeos, in the PBR, the riders don’t get much announcer love, especially if they couldn’t finish the ride and if they don’t speak English. I thought the whole thing was a little mean spirited.
Anyways that is my Foto Friday Fun pic for this week.

This week’s number is 2458. Above is the only 2458 I have in my archives. It is of the sky over a Seattle Mariner’s daytime baseball game in Seattle a few years ago. We loved Seattle, it is a beautiful city and the people are very knowledgeable sports fans.
This is a mural at Living Arts Space in Tulsa. It is part of the their “Day of the Dead” activities every year. You can read more about Dia De Los Muertos by following the link.
They change the murals ever year and I love them despite the morbid subject matter. You can’t tell the scale of the murals by looking at them but they are huge. Here is one from last year.

This is an office building in downtown Tulsa. I like to wander around town during my lunch hour taking photographs of what I see. I use a variety of cameras. I took this one with my Apple Ipod Touch using the Hipstamatic App. I love using different filters and effects and Hipstamatic has quite a few to play with. I’m not much of a purist when it comes to “SOOC” and I don’t think that the term has any meaning any more with all the various things that can be done “in camera” with images. I also love posting images on Instagram. Check the sidebar for my latest Instagram photos.
I’m participating with Gaelyn’s “Foto Friday Fun” meme. Go check it out, come up with a number and she’ll match the number with a photo from her archives. And her archives contain tens of thousands of great photographs.
The number this week for Foto Friday Fun is 3847. That turns out to be a hay rake (thanks David Hall for letting me know) that Logan and I found at Mohawk Park here in Tulsa a couple years ago during a geocaching expedition. I liked the shadows it made on the pavement during a sunny November day.
