Actually, his name is Luke, but when he wrote down his email address for me to send him copies of the photos I took, it started with "lichen". And that "rock" is part of the U.S.S. Darter - U.S.S. Dace Memorial.
In our yard, tulips are rabbit food. I don't think I've seen even one bloom since my former downstairs neighbors planted the bulbs. As the leaves start poking out of the ground, the rabbits start nibbling on them.
I received an email today from Dennis Whitley, Director of 8-18 Media, asking if he could send one of my photos from the 8-18 Media Recognition Night, which was held on April 30th at North Star Academy, to Pat from Marquette Monthly. It will be used in the "City Notes" section of their June issue. This is the photo I sent him:
Update: Yes, it was published in the Marquette Monthly. No, I did not receive photo credit. But that's okay with me. I'm just glad they could use something that I'll probably not use -- other than here and/or Flickr.:^)
We were assured by the news and newspaper that the oil spill in Marquette's Lower Harbor was cleaned up. Maybe my eyes (and camera) are deceiving me. Perhaps I need my glasses cleaned. What do YOU think?
