I am never too tired to stop and take a photo.  OC found this fella traveling the sidewalk about 11 p.m. one evening and called me outside. “Bring your camera,” he said, and any protest I might have made about tromping down three flights of stairs when I’d much rather crawl into bed disappated.  This is what my camera and I found at the bottom of the stairs:

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Nice picture, you have a really good camera for this is wonderful clarity and depth.

    It would take the little fellow a long time to tour the world. Though his world is big enough.

    A Blessed Sunday is wished for you and OC

  2. Amber — thanks!

    Carletta — I was rather proud of how well the photos came out since I was shooting by porch light.

    Jeanette — that is the plus side to my being overly tired — I am also at my wackiest and most creative.

    Bill — OC says the snail can crawl about an inch a minute or about 5 feet per hour.

    Cath — that it was.

    Dr. John — wow! Thanks.

    Doug — actually, according to my school mates, I have four eyes.

    Andrew — I am glad you approve.

    Brian — your comment is profetic — coming soon to my photo blog (a link can be found in the left hand column) is a photo I took of our Governor.

    Brig — he wasn’t much of a taker, though.

    OC — next time you find one, you can cook and eat it. I’ll watch.

  3. I was lucky to meet such a fast traveller with his house on his back in spring and took the same picture, only my traveller is more grey, lol !

  4. okay so your significant other saw

    a snail

    and immediately thought

    you should take a picture.

    i’d talk about how strange that is, but i have ABsolutely NO credibility to talk about strangeness with.

    so your good to go.

    nice snail… 😉

  5. Wow, Quilly this is yet another fantastic photo by you. Funny isn’t it how you would complain about going out … until you hear “bring your camera”, then all complaints and weariness are gone, hahaha.

    Have a wonderful week!!
