Banksy in Time

Camera_Eyes_Stencil_Artist_(c)MacMasters_2018

A stencil artist came to town one year and trusted his creations to the vagaries of time. Yesterday, Banksy speeded up time as a stencil painting was bought at auction: here today in lust, gone today in shreds.

The eye of the camera is keeping time.

Homeward Orbs

What Orbs Look Like at 55mph

Driving home from Alpine, Arizona it’s finally dark enough to open the window and take some flash photos hoping for orbs.

Yucca stalk with Orbs

Now this is fun, trying to synchronize my flash with the yucca stalks I see coming our way.

Home at last. The agave is beginning to bloom. And good old triangle orb is on the upper left as usual.

Orb Quest Tonight

It has been too long since I went questing for orbs, but with a friend in town we treated ourselves to a flash adventure on the town.

Murmuring orbs in trees say goodnight.

Thank goodness for friends who say yes! to an evening’s quest for orbs.

If you squint your eyes you almost see orbs.

Orbs On the Other Side of Town

Margo looks for orbs

One of my orb enthusiasts asked me to go on a quest for orbs tonight. Margo didn’t think she was having much luck on her own and wasn’t sure that any lived in her neighborhood.  Here she is  looking for that orb who is looking at her.

When I don’t seem to be having any luck finding orbs among the trees, I can usually find them in one of their favorite hangouts: the power lines.

house orbs

Margo now realizes there are plenty of orbs in her neighborhood.

Loma Linda Orbs

The Loma Linda is considered Bisbee’s one true mansion.

These century plant stalks have the regalness of pine trees.

Of course orbs would be attracted to the joys of the children’s playground.
