Another Wildflower

“Wildflower” is just a polite way of saying “weed.” I love these shots, because the detail tends to be exquisite when you can manage to get them into focus at all. And you have no idea how big a flower you are looking at unless the photographer tells you. This one’s smaller than a U.S. quarter.

Those of you who who remember when I started photoblogging this spring may recall that one of the first photos I ever published in March is very similar to this one. I took this one with my phone camera just to gauge the differences between the two cameras. The detail is much better here, but the auto settings on the phone camera washed out the evening. If not for the angle of the light on the talons, this photo could have been taken at midday. I still like it, though.

Wordless Wednesday: Bouquet

For the month of October, Diana has be kind enough to allow me to share one game a week, all of which I recommend for Halloween, tabletop fun!

You don’t have to drop big bucks to play a spooky game this Halloween. All you need are your friends, a plan and maybe a pound of dice.

If you are into RPG games like Dungeons and Dragons, then all you have to do is create a Halloween theme mini-campaign (or ask your DM, politely, to create one). Honestly, the possibilities are endless. You can incorporate Walking Dead scenarios and characters into your game. You could go on a quest to help the headless horseman find a head before he takes your’s. Seriously, the only thing limiting you is you.

A D&D game from years past.

D&D is not for everyone, I know, but for me it is a ton of fun. And really, it doesn’t have to be D&D, just any dice based RPG you can think up. I would just, personally, use some D&D rules as guidelines for dice rolls.

No matter what you play this Halloween, remember, have fun!

Have a suggestion for a board game you’d like to see on this Once A Month Gamer post? Have any questions about this month’s game? Leave a comment down below.
