Photo of the Week #1 . . . (not really)

I felt that it was time to force myself to write another blog entry. And it was also time to push out those horrible pictures of Ke$ha and Adam Lambert as the top post on the blog.

I finally got around to setting up a flickr page. My plan is to feature one photo per week from flickr on this blog, thus generating some regular content.

The most significant thing that I learned in setting up the flickr page is that, of the 3,700 digital photographs that I've taken over the last eight years, almost none of them are good enough to post on the internet. And the very few that are good enough are extraordinarily hard to find among the 3,700 photographs in my iPhoto library.

The first photo in the series is of a dead juvenile House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) that I found lying on the sidewalk in Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia, this spring. Some might say that a dead bird is too macabre for the blog. But I'd rather look at that than Adam Lambert.

UPDATE: I can't get Blogger to load the picture from flickr. I'll have to try again later.
