butterflies and hurricanes

Me Myself and Eye

In order to make this title make sense, I am currently sipping a Hurricane whilst I upload these pics from the zoo the other day. This is obviously a fib, given that it is 9am on a Thursday, but go with me on this one. Anyway, this particular title is from one of my favourite Muse songs which concerns itself with chaos theory, with specific emphasis on the Butterfly Effect. As far as I am concerned, far too many musicians have overlooked this area of physics when looking for inspiration for a quick ditty.

For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, here is a link to the song being played live at Wembley in 2007: Butterflies and Hurricanes Live.

I realise it may be a bit too much of a racket for some, but at least hang around for the piano solo at 3:45. It’s so subtly done you have to love it.

Enough blather, here are the pics – see if you can spot the hurricane:

day in/day out
It's been a while since I just went out just shooting random stuff, so after spending the morning working at home, I got to go out and spend some time at the Indianapolis Zoo. My main goal originally was to go and hang out with the butterflies. They have a great selection there, and they are always pretty keen to sit around and pose. Plus the fact they are indoors means there is no wind to deal with, which can be a nightmare if you are trying to shoot macro images. Anyhow, I ventured outside to the gardens (which I had completely forgotten about) and it was a riot of colour. These are some of my fave shots from the day from the gardens. Butte ...

getting out
One of the themes of the last few weeks since Natalia made her appearance has been that we have been spending a lot of time indoors. It's good timing really from her standpoint as she can't go out, so she might as well be locked up for the coldest time of the year. I'm pleased she is showing herself to be considerate from such an early age. Anyway. rather than posting a load of pics of us sitting around in our jim-jams watching Dora the Explorer for the Nth time, here are some pictures of our first couple of trips out of the house this past weekend. The temperature got up to the 70s Fahrenheit (that's 20s Celsius for our overseas friends) ...
