The middle picture is just begging for a Chip animation.

surveying the soybean crop again?

Great pix, very lovely and flattering light. Good job Meade.

Ann Althouse said...

"Lovely photos, Prof. I hope someday your photos will be in a museum exhibit."

Well, Meade took 2 of them.

"The HuffPost says Steve Jobs wanted to help the POTUS in 2012. It would have been great."

It also says Jobs told him he'd be a 1-term president because his policies are so unfriendly to business... and that the teachers' unions should be busted.

See the next post.

The top one is very Helgalian.

It's gonna be a cold night, tonight

Nothing - nothing in the Seventh inning of the 2nd game of World Series Baseball.

Did I tell you I love this game?

There's an epic quality to them and you look as if you're calling down the heavens themselves.

But to what purpose, Madame?

On behalf of all us mortals, use your power wisely.

Remember the sorcerer's apprentice.

It looks as it zombies shall attack, they shall... Steve Jobs could very well be one of the zombies. I do sincerely hope you are armed and ready.

There I was, minding my own dadgum business, when Kirk came around and provoked me.

Autumn sunset, practicing for Halloween.

The Texas hitters are getting impatient, swinging at the ball in the dirt.

That never works.. unless you a Blad Gerrero.

Ingmar....calling Ingmar Bergman.

Something that was said earlier in the week has been rattling around in my head.

What if AP and Carol Herman and Titus really were some of Ann's noms de net, and she used them to vent her frustration and outrage at her loyal commentariat when we just didn't see it her way?

Think about it - all the protestations of cruel neutrality, her professorial bearing, her usual ladylike demeanor must get awfully hard to control when, like the rest of us, somebody succeeds in what The Blonde calls "getting on her last nerve".

It might also save some wear and tear on Meade.

Although he might like her like that.

Remember the old Duke Wayne line, "You're awful purty when you're mad".

@ChipAhoy--fantastic.

Lem said...

Pujols just got under one.. almost hit it out.

SL leads 1 - 0 in the bottom of the 8th

Lem said...

Oh boy.. Texas got two ducks on the pond with NOBODY out.. top of the 9th.

Great, but her head should have retracted, too.

Kirk Parker said...

Chip, nice!

Though if you've taking requests for other versions (e.g. edutcher) maybe one with showers of sparks coming out of her finger would be interesting as well.

edutcher said...

I like that - the sorceress' apprentice.

Your hair looks so great in these photos.

David said...

Meade must love you, he photos you so pretty. A beholder's eye.

The fist photo is very 'King Lear' (madness on the heath). You should put out a tabletop photography book called "My Wisconsin" or similar.

Very lyrical.

Nicely put.

The top photo is sublime. I love it.

I was out for a walk with my 3 year old and saw that. The clouds were even more interesting where I was at near Cambridge (WI) and I thought about running back to the house to grab my camera. Decided not to as it was just too big and awesome to get in one frame and I wanted to stand there and appreciate something for once instead of spending the time capturing it. Sure enough, just about when I would have gotten back, a big jet stream appeared and marred it. Glad I just watched it.

There's nothing like a haystack in an autumn sunset.

Lem, "Ducks on the pond"..precious. Always appreciate your love of the greatest game.
