Shadowy Yarn Bombs in the Garden

At the treehouse at the Tulsa Botanic Garden there are several yarn bombs hidden away in the shadows.

Yarn Bombs are my favorite form of graffiti. It’s not vandalism and can be very colorful.

And if they get a little aged, sagging, or miscolored, a pair of scissors removes them.

Turkey Mountain’s Human Sundial!

I was on Tulsa’s Turkey Mountain the other day and came across something I had forgot about. A Human Sundial.

Here is what it looks like

And here is the instructions and the guy who put it together as an Eagle Scout Project.

So, I stepped on the July step, and sure enough, it gave the correct time. Corrected for daylight savings time of course. I remember discovering this years ago and I completely forgot about it. Nice to find stuff like this again.

Kudos to the Eagle Scouts of the World and their multitude of projects.

Shadowy Critters

I put my trailcam out last night for the first time in a long time. I checked it this morning and we had a mystery cat snooping around at 1:30 in the morning.

I haven’t been able to go hiking in the woods for a while because of all the rain we’ve had so I have been walking around Lafortune Park here in Tulsa a lot. I followed this squirrel down the trail for a 25 yards or so and he finally climbed up this pole and was looking at me chattering and flagging his tail. It was like he was saying “What!!”

Shadow Shot Sunday – Floral Hand Shadows

A few evenings ago I ventured out to Tulsa’s Woodward Park to check out the azaleas, tulips, and other plantings they have there. I decided to do something dumb that I do from to time. I pulled out my phone and fired up the Hipstamatic App and did some double exposures.

First I hold my hand up to the sky and snap the first shot and then point the camera at something floral and snap the second shot. The flowers fade out in the sun but come out in the dark shadow of the hand.

So I am sure that people were wondering what I was doing but you know, that’s their deal. You do you, people, and I’ll do me.

I may have carried it too far. I don’t know.

I had fun with it though.
