I thought at first that this is Anax Imperator, but this guy doesn’t have the black stripe on the back of the abdomen, and most A. Imperator have a blue abdomen. He or she was very patient, and posed until I got tired of shooting.

Here’s a view of the abdomen:

If anyone knows what it is, please post a comment.

Bench

The view from this bench is not all that interesting, but the view of the bench, the lines and the shadows, grabbed me.

No picture today. I used my camera for something else. I recorded myself playing two songs on guitar, My Opening Farewell by Jackson Browne, and City of New Orleans by Steve Goodman. And am I glad I have a sense of humor. The last words on the first video are me saying “That sucked.” The last words on the second video are me saying “That sucked, too.”

And it did. I need to a) work on my intonation, b) sing louder, which will help my intonation, and c) watch my right hand. I scrape the strings rather than pluck them. I’m aware of this, but I was not aware of just how shitty it sounds. And the camera makes me extremely nervous. I have a lot of work to do.

Each of them has a slightly different feel. I like them all.

This is not the final image. The greenery needs a lot of work. All of these photos are just quick edits in shotwell and it has very limited capabilities. The trouble is, I am a crap editor, mainly because I haven’t taken to time to dive in and learn darktable or affinity. But maybe this image can serve as motivation.
