Still building

Another shot from that rainy day, taken through the window of a taxi. It would've been nice to have had more than one building in the shot - to have had a skyline instead of just one building - but this was a nice shot anyway.

I post this on a very tired, sleep deprived, caffeine lacking Monday. I hate Mondays.

Life in the rain


cyclist and car in the rain, originally uploaded by Wahj.

Took this photo from a taxi, waiting for the queue to move. I'd been watching this cyclist for a few minutes as he struggled to put on his hood in the rain. It must have been miserable for him, and having every car that went by splash him a bit more would only have made it worse.

"everywhere you go, you always take the weather with you" It's been a miserable few weeks, outside and inside, and I long for some sunshine to take the dullness away and put an edge back on things.

Attrition

Two of the fish in our iMacAquarium were found dead this afternoon. I came home, and there they were, belly up, with fuzzy stuff on their gills.

Sigh. We've never been very good at keeping fishes. At least I didn't have to euthanize them like tscd did hers.

Iffy gets into bonsai


iffy gets into bonsai, originally uploaded by Wahj.

My wife bought me a bonsai plant as an anniversary present. I didn't have the chance to bring it to my office during the hols, so it was at home the past few weeks.

My cat, Iffy, decided (of course) she wanted to get into this whole bonsai thing herself as well, and trimmed a few of the branches, as you can see. Then she puked them out.

It's fun living with cats, isn't it.
