Infrared Images

Infrared Images

My digital SLR camera, a Nikon D50, is able to detect infrared light. Using an infrared filter, I can take photographs of that light. Since infrared radiation is put out by heated objects, the resulting images tend to show the trees and grass brightly, but water and the sky is dark.

Diabolically Delightful Dante

Diabolically Delightful Dante

A few years ago, we adopted a beautiful sable cat. He was already named Dante, and we liked the name, so we kept it.

I’m not sure why it is, but I associate the name ‘Dante’ with something slightly sinister. It’s probably because of the association with The Divine Comedy combined with another D-name, Damien, from The Omen.)

My first Medford cemetery

My first Medford cemetery

A few months ago we moved to Medford, about fifteen miles north of Ashland. Naturally, I’ve been meaning to check out the cemeteries here but, being the procrastinator I am, I had not done so — until yesterday.

The silly thing is there’s a cemetery near here that I drive by nearly any time I’m out and about. I’m not talking about the Siskiyou Memorial Park* that I can easily see from the street (and which doesn’t interest me so much because, well, it’s a memorial park.) No, I’m talking about the Eastwood Cemetery.
