Shot at NIGHT.


Pictures taken today, Friday, May 22 & last night. The purplish color at night is from my artificial lighting — i.e., the LED headlights I wear on my head.

A second batch of three have started to flower. So, this morning I had 6 flowers rather than three. Still less than in prior years.

Enjoy.

eBay Buyers Can Be So Pigheaded & Short-Sighted.

This morning, I happened to look at what this Tamron superzoom was selling for at eBay. I had one to sell (but, no more since I got a very SWEET trade-in deal from my friend Kurt Seelig at ‘Cardinal Camera’.

What I saw made me SMILE.

People bidding on the ‘For Auction’ item ignoring the ‘Buy it Now’ offers.

IF you really wanted this lens why would you make a BID for $110.14 (and then wait 2-days to see if you will get OUTBID) when for 6 cents more — yes 6 CENTS more — you could get a refurbished lens from a ‘Top Rated PLUS’ seller?

Plus another that will entertain offers.

Crazy.

I understand what happens. I have bought & sold a TON on eBay & was a proud eBay shareholder for at least a decade. SMILE.

People get caught up in the bidding & YES, there are the automatic bids.

But, you have to SMILE.

I have been a seller in similar situations, watching folks bid all around you when they would be better off trying to buy my listing.

C’est la vie. Life goes on.
