Sky Dog


Blue and white.
Into
Space

I don’t know why, but this picture makes me really happy. From the moment I saw it on my screen, I just smiled. It was so good right from the start that I didn’t do much to it. I darkened the edges a little bit and stopped. Don’t do what you don’t need to do. Keep it simple.

Maybe I’ll finally get that in my head and for once it will stay there.

But, you know me. I have to tinker. I must experiment, I think that I can make the picture better. Sometimes I can. A good example of that is “Over 9 Billion Served.” I did a lot to the two pictures that make that one image. It worked, but it doesn’t always.

Speaking of “Over 9 Billion Served,” the phrase is written that way because McDonalds doesn’t really know how many burgers they’ve served.

They think the number is really over 400 billion. That’s a lot of marginal hamburgers. And, we wonder why so many people in America are a “little” overweight. No. Make that a lot overweight.

I see that especially in New Orleans. Sure, the food is great, but you don’t have to eat everything in sight. Luckily, it gets worse. New Orleanians claim to like fish and seafood. They do, but they like it when it’s dipped in batter and deep fried. They don’t necessarily like the fish or seafood, they like the taste of the batter. Eating that frequently adds the pounds really quickly.

And, one more question. In these days of way too much data, and some that doesn’t make sense because it is so granular, how can McDonalds possibly not know how many burgers they’ve served? They knew what they served before data was flying all over space. Maybe so much current data is beyond analysts capability.

Or, maybe they don’t want to know.
