Sunrise Over Wright Quad

This is by way of a wee test. My beloved FlickStackr app was removed from the app store by Apple. The developer said they weren’t going to try to resubmit, so that left a huge hole for me, because it was the only app I’ve found that provides HTML for Flickr images.

Well, it’s back! They’ve changed the name to PhotoExplorer, but it’s the same app with the same functionality, including HTML. So now I won’t have to go back and edit images in blog posts. (If I didn’t edit, no mouse-over test was provided, which isn’t friendly for visually impaired folks.)

Anyway, strong recommend for this app, if you use Flickr and blog images on mobile. It’s US$2.99 and worth every penny.

Double Rainbow

We had a brief rain storm, and then a double rainbow with spokes appeared.

It was pea soup this morning. So of course, while I was out walking Thomas, some random guy decided I wanted to stop and have a chat about the weather. At 4am.

Morning Sky

The sky this morning was kind of mesmerizing.

Thomas chose the perfect time to bark at invisible intruders in the back field. I went to see what was there (nothing), and saw the eastern sky had turned pink.

I timed my coffee break perfectly again this morning. The western sky was beautiful.

Exit

Sometimes the reflection of interior lights on the windows provides nihilist commentary.

Exit

And sans commentary.

I expect the clear sky will last about 10 minutes.

They’re renovating the 9th floor of the west tower. Eventually the fine arts library will move here, so that their space in the fine arts building can be incorporated into the big art museum renovation. The library will permanently lose the space in the art building, unfortunately, so we’re having to find room for the fine arts collection in the main library.

The 9th floor is being cleared out, so it can be renovated, so the fine arts collection will have a new home.

Coffee Break

Job Security

I went to get coffee and check the eastern sky. Bupkis. But I saw that the incoming table in acquisitions was full of books waiting to be unboxed and processed. We call that job security.

Then I looked at the western sky.

Belt of Venus

What a beautiful Belt of Venus!
