... or my frozen computer screen. The spinning beach ball of death, I call it.

Fortunately nobody is inside. They had a show on TV the other day where people were asked to stand up in a ball and the ball was large enough for them to stand in on water.

Since I was hacked I had to give up my old user name and the blogs that went with it.

So this is the new birds blog and I hope you can come visit. Birds Birds Birds and Birds

Finally some free time.

I love this. The way the light makes the ball translucent is eerie. Do you remember the old TV show The Prisoner?

What a great, spring-y capture! Bouncing along . . .so colorful and light. xx

Was there a little kid running down the street after it?

Our grandkids loved to play with these in the pool. Trouble is they never seemed to hold air very well. Or maybe the kids beat the air out of them.

Capistrano has swallows. Other neighborhoods have errant beach balls.

I love the shadow through the colors and clear parts on the pavement!

When I see the wind blowing one of these things, I begin to saunter after it. It seems that they move much faster than when I was younger. The capture takes much more time and strategy than before.

Quite arresting agains an apparent sepia world.

Amazing combination of color and monochrome, of textures, of mood.
