Weird Plants


I really don’t know.

It seems like we moved to the desert with plants like this one hiding in the undergrowth. I have no idea what to call it.

I suppose there’s an app for that.

There were a number of them that looked dead, but, I bet they aren’t. They’ll awaken after a winter’s sleep. There is this one that still has some its pink color left. If any of you have an idea about what it is, I’m all ears.

A return to generative AI has me a bit discouraged. First, the progress in just a few weeks is remarkable. People that were created by software now look like real people. They are all over my Instagram feed.

What bothers me even more is how many young users are cheering the fact that all of this might be regarded as copyright infringements which is tantamount to theft. They are basically saying, “Yeah, steal, steal.” Wait, there’s no basically about it. That’s what they are saying.

I’ve been spending a lot of time on Twitter, which winds me up too much, so I think I may cut back.

There’s a lot of AI discussion over there which includes using certain keywords to create certain kinds of images.

There’s also a guy who is about 70,000 images into creating his goal of 100,000 total images. He creates about 2,000 a day. He was not amused when I said that’s the same kind of overproduction that killed the stock photography business. His methodology really does have that potential.

    That might be a thistle, though I don’t know for sure. Today my husband photographed a plant I’m pretty sure is a thistle, and it looks somewhat similar. But I haven’t gotten out yet to view it myself, I’m battling a serious illness.
