A bug’s life …

I love Pixar
Pixar has to be one of my favorite companies. I follow everything they do. Today’s photo reminds me of the movie “A Bug’s Life.” It’s probably their least popular movie, but one of my favorites. It has a great story and I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to have a bug’s life.

Today’s shot: A bug’s life
I shot this photo on a whim one night. I was out looking for flowers when I came across this lightning bug on a leaf at my neighbor’s house. I was using a 100mm macro lens I rented to take on my trip to Montana.

Mmmmm … beer

What’s your favorite beer?
If there’s one thing that keeps me jogging every night it’s my love for beer. Seriously, I run every night. Usually between two and three miles and my main motivation is I can then drink a beer and not feel so bad about it. I’m not drinking lots of beer, a six pack can last me more than a week. So, that leads me to today’s question. What’s your favorite beer? If I had to choose an all-time favorite it would be Boddingtons. But I’ve been trying some different beers this summer that I’ve really enjoyed. My dad is going to bring back some beer from Montana in the fall. Looking forward to that.

Today’s shot: It leads to beer!
Our local Volkswagen and Audi car club took a road trip to the New Glarus Brewery in New Glarus, Wisconsin recently. We had the place to ourselves. Well, it was before noon. But come on, it’s Wisconsin. Don’t they drink 24-7 up there? Anyway, we went on a self-guided tour of where the magic happens and toward the end of the trip this sign was hanging. There was a positive outcome … we drank some beer!

Hot August night

Music to chill to
What’s your favorite music to listen to while you’re working on photos, or whatever it is you do while on your computer? Usually I listen to iTunes, but I have my record player next to me and I listened to some records that I hadn’t listen to in a while tonight. Some ska covers by Amy Winehouse and Lilly Allen. I picked up the new  Deal’s Gone Bad 45 a few weekends ago at a show and gave it a listen. I think their new album is going to be awesome.

Today’s shot: Hot August night
It is so hot out lately. I went out at dust to take this photo. I will gut the space underneath the big bay window and do some landscaping … someday. I’d like to put a planter box in that space instead of the brick row and the mulch. Steph likes the little statue of the frog lovers on the bench, so we have to put it out every summer.
