Not picked

Every year, after the grape harvest, there are bunches of grapes here and there that were missed by the mechanical harvesters or passed over by the hand harvesters. Eventually they'll be eaten by wildlife or rot away. In the meantime we get to enjoy their presence, if not their juice.

Grapes left behind.

Here's a pet peeve: progress bars that pop up on the screen, sit empty for a few seconds, then are suddenly full for a split second before disappearing. What is the point? Discuss...


  1. Ha! Those stupid progress bars. I also love installations and updates that tell me 1 minute remaining and then take 10 minutes. The color of those grapes is delicious.

    1. It depends on these minutes being Fahrenheit or Celsius!

  2. What a beautiful photo! A picture perfect example of autumn.

  3. Ahhhh, the colors of autumn :)

    I haver never experienced this progress bar thing you've mentioned. Maybe it doesn't happen on Macs?

  4. mitch, those bug me, too. Ten minutes...two minutes...six minutes...32minutes...done!

    michael, :)

  5. No progress bars on my HP computer!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
