I am a procrastinator. I’m horribly lazy and it takes a whole lot to get me focused on one particular thing. Inktober is something that gets me focused each year. During the month of Spooky-Christmas, aka Halloween, aka October each year is the challenge of Inktober. If you don’t know, Inktober was a challenge set to himself by the illustrator Jake Parker. It has taken on a life of its own over the years and many people participate. I have done it the last couple of years and this year, I decided to draw a character. I started with an opossom but he ended up a little more like a rat. I’ve included some choice selections from this year’s collection.
For the last two weeks, I have been in Denver. My first trip to denver was punctuated with a snowstorm that shut down the office I was working out of for a day. I’m not used to driving in the snow, but it was an adventure and I got some good pictures. While I was in Denver, I took a quick trip south to see the Garden of the Gods, a natural rock formation with a nice scenic drive. It was beautiful. On my way down, I took a quick time lapse showing a small section of the continental divide. I used a go pro mount on an egg timer to make it and it turned out pretty cool.
Finally, when I got home, I learned of the passing of my last sole owned pet, Premonition (Prem for short). She was a sweet kitty and knew nothing but living in my house from kittenhood. She has seen the coming and going of several room mates and the arrival of my wife and her cats. She has taken her place with my other cats Omen and Oatmeal along with a few other family pets. I will miss her but I know she’s in a better place. Here’s a shot of her getting kisses from her friend Shakespeare, also departed and missed deeply.
