Answer to yesterday’s mystery object: Yes, it’s a tree trunk, photographed with the camera vertical, so when I opened it the image was horizontal. More than that, the trunk looked like scaled stone, hence my surprise.
Today is vile. I attempted some outdoor shots, but no luck. So I retreated to the library and was lucky enough to come across this picture. I like the juxtaposition of warm, cheerful, rainbow panels and what’s going on outside.
