Come Monday, The Labor Day Weekend Show

Come Monday, by Jimmy Buffett
I’ve always associated this song with Labor Day.  I’ve “got my hushpuppies on” and am just goofing off and writing this blog.  Otherwise, no plans, just taking a deep breath and catching up on domestic chores.
Infrared filter+Sepia via GIMP
Took this photo of the approaching train in color while out walking, applied b&w infrared and sepia filters in the camera, and then used GIMP to touch up the sepia and contrast.
Wolf spider w/babies I took this photo of a female wolf spider whose eggs have recently hatched and all of her offspring are riding on her back, which they will do until they are old enough to get along on their own.  I also used my 90mm macro lens for this night photo, along with flash.  The challenge here was to get close enough to capture the detail of the dozens of tiny spiders on her abdomin while still getting the pop-up flash on the camera to flash over the extended length of this lens.  I saw several such spider moms out that night while walking.  I had seen them the previous night and made sure that I brought my macro with me this time!
