365.274 Welcome to the Jungle

Well, today was the quarterly luncheon for the team I lead, so I ate a bunch of stuff that I don’t normally eat for lunch (or for any other meal, really). Guess what that means? As soon as digestion really got going, I developed a really bad mood: like an eff this, ima quit and move to the desert sorta mood.

And then I got to drive home, where the mood turned to one of futility, so that when I arrived home, I was mad at the world nothing in particular, yet simultaneously despairing of my self and my station.

I wonder if varying my diet some would help with these incidents? I also wonder if varying my diet would lead to more or less general peacefulness that I feel most of the time?

I don’t know.

Luckily, I don’t need to know, particularly, since I’m able to eat what I want and when I want about 95% of the time.

Also lucky: since I was bothered for most of the drive home, I didn’t have much time to psych myself out of going for a brief walk down the alley and back. I don’t like feeling wretched, but I do quite enjoy getting out with the camera, even briefly, since I so often am quite simply too afraid to set foot outside.

As to this picture, or the title, anyway: I’m thinking of Welcome to the Jungle, but performed as if Axl was acting as a second front man for Jethro Tull during a performance of Bungle in the Jungle, to the tune of the GnR classic, but with copious amounts of flute solo.

How magical would that be?

D7000. Tokina AT-X 35-200mm f/3.5-4.5, in Macro Mode. ISO125 (finger slip), 1/250th (AP mode), f/3.5 (ish, as I’m not quite sure where the lens was at the time). About 25 minutes of slider play in Aperture to take the background down a stop or two and help give some interest/nervousness to the bokeh.
