A glowing skull from Disneyland

…is a title I never thought I would use for a blog post. But here we are! It was a busy day and I didn’t take any photos outdoors, but I always take a photo of something, so today it was the glow-in-the-dark skull I bought at Disneyland over 40 years ago. It still glows in the dark, too.

I’m not sure why I bought it. I think it was $8 or $9, which was actually decent money back in the early 80s. And it was heavy. If I remember correctly, I bought it at the end of the evening, so only had to carry it to the parking lot. I was no dumb kid. At least not when it came to transporting heavy, glow-in-the-dark skulls.

Abstract photography or what you do when you run out of time

I have an arbitrary rule that I must take at least one photo a day. It’s just a silly little challenge and most days I usually get a scenery shot or sometimes, if I’m feeling fancy, a bird.

But some days, like today, I either don’t go out, or just plain forget, and that’s when I have to get creative, because I’ll never just take a selfie (ugh) or a shot of whatever is in front of me, I need to at least make something out of it.
