11 14 22


Shot in the courtyard of the public library in downtown Rochester, NY (11/12/22). Inside the library, the music played.

No word in the English language rhymes with month. I read it on a Snapple bottle cap, so it must be true.

    That’s a nice view through the leaves in the second photograph.

      Thanks, Lynn. It’s a nice courtyard to visit. I hadn’t been here in a long time since I don’t go downtown much anymore.

    Nice photos . . . different than what they looked like in the seventh month, or even midmonth.

    Perhaps this is the billionth time I said this ā€” or maybe just the millionth ā€” but I donth put much stock in wisdom from bottle caps.

    Besides, anyone with a lisp can easily rhyme ‘month’.

      Thanks, E. Both of these photos were shot with the Samsung S22 last week. The camera in that phone keeps surprising me with nice quality photos. Some of the photos I’ve put through Topaz Photo AI just as a test and they look really nice after processing. There are other modes in the camera I haven’t tried yet, including a “pro” mode. I’m not sure what that is but I intend to find out.
      As for bottle cap trivia, I think you are approaching the billionth time mark, E. It’s curious that I think I get more comments on the trivia than the photos.

      The pro mode is a bit like the manual mode on a DSLR . . . you can set aperture, ISO, WB, and shutter speed. However, I’ve not found it as useful since they’re a bit clumsy to set (at least on my phone).

      The only reason I’ve found to use it is that in Pro mode, you can opt to save the RAW capture in addition to the JPG.

      But, again, the onboard engine does a pretty good job of processing the image.

      As for the comments, there’s not much to say about perfection, but perhaps more to say about bottle caps’ wisdom.

      That said, I think you get more comments about the photos than the Snapple trivia. You should do a quick check over the course of a few posts to confirm it.

      It could be that you’re more sensitive to trivia comments than comments about the photos, and hence you register them as dominating the conversation.

      Regardless, just be grateful you get comments. I can tell you mine have died off, probably because I’m posting too much.

        I’m not at all sensitive about comments about the photos or the trivia. A long time ago I made a decision about what I wanted this (and the other) blog to be. Sharing with friends and others with similar interests is not the only reason for postings. Mind you that’s important to me but there are other reasons why I maintain the blogs. By the way, at the rate I’m posting I have enough bottle cap trivia to last several more years.

    The overcast clouds add to the feeling of the fall/early winter season. It’s a beautiful courtyard as well.

      Thanks, Earl. The courtyard was unfinished the last time I was there so this was a pleasant surprise for me.

      How would you like a job as a fact checker for us, Steve?

        Sorry, I’m currently booked up checking nature.

        Actually there are plenty of English words that don’t rhyme with anything else Here are a few: silver, warmth, purple, scarce, month, nothing, monster, unbeknownst, false, ninth, pint, olive, angel, wolf, opus, dangerous, marathon, penguin.

          Mangerous, a very sick animal! And what about burple? There’s a word that needs no explanation.
