Single In Single in September (SiS) 2023 - day 1

Day 1. Burning the metaphoric midnight oil.
It's easy to lose track of time when one is writing... but harder for my watch to lose track.

An SOOC jpeg, taken with the GX9's internal l.monochrome.d setting, and using the camera's Green filter effect.
An Orient, for you are a man of discerning taste, as we all know! ;)

Also, the green filter was my favorite with both versions of l. monochrome.

In Yellowstone today, not a bad place to start the single in.

Cool shot, Glen.
It has a particular interest for me because in Southern Oregon, where I live, over the last month or so (of quite hot summer weather), we have been getting massive amounts of both crickets and cicadas every night. I like in a slightly rural property outside of town, and every evening there is and has been a remarkable double symphony, both of crickets sawing away, and the intense buzzing songs of the cicadas. But I haven't actually seen any of the cicadas - so your photo is inspiring me to grab a flashlight of my own and do some nocturnal sleuthing.
