Tim Kiser's photos with the weeds

With a hand on my hip and the other slowly stroking my vandyke, I skeptically considered the strange message. Could it be a prank.

Photography tips for hiding the shadows cast by outdoor objects on brilliantly sunny days.
Prowl around the object until you espy the spot where its shadow disappears. Now the world looks tidily 2D!, perfect for 2D pics.

The puddle in the gravel might be my favorite puddle in the entire north metro of the Twin Cities; and I almost didn't manage to get a pic of it from the window of our moving excursion train; and I'm glad that I did because otherwise I might not have been…

Skywriting of the side of a dumpster I visited one day.

It's called "skywriting," all of the young are trying it I heard. You try to draw what the sky looks like to you at a particular time. Some areas are tricky to try to represent some days!

I put my hands into the mulch so I definitely know it's definitely mulch but everything else is made of I don't know what the hell.

You will smoke several while you animatedly bitch at somebody into a cellphone. After you finish each cigarette you will flip the butt from thy fingers, out into the weeds or gravel. You are strutting around sleeveless.

And phooey upon that AAA Triple-A motorists' club office over there too, I don't need it. I walked all the way down here and I'll walk all the way back. Unless a john decides to give me a lift. It's an attractive street w/ sidewalks on both sides.

Welcome to "Drake's Dreamy Delite" massive siding show.
I think somebody wanted to try to open up an ice cream shop? That sidewalk's unfortunately not gonna last forever.

It is not any special thing, just a guardrail and a road. I see guardrails and roads all the time so I do not get excited about them any more.

It looks like it might be a nice area to live in if you're fond of particular colours. There are sidewalks on both sides of the streeeeet and that's rare in certain neighbourhoods of some cities.

Large white flower in vase.
Big and impressive bloom!, but it smelt awful, like burning diapers, so I didn't press my face into it the way I usually like to do when I see a flower.

What are the different meanings of the colourful decorations on the vase!

10-pole platform:  Did maybe it formerly sport a dumpster.
I used it as a prayer platform and I prayed aloud — very loudly — that I wouldn't get ticks on me when I scrambled into the weeds. It worked!, I didn't.

I know it's different for every person but I feel that my prayers don't take unless I yell them plus…

Foreground bloody devilclaw slashmarks seem to want to warn away passersby, in approximate parallel to the horizon.

I worry that the soil is probably polluted but the plants don't seem to mind. They're pretty!
