I wish we could all have good luck, all the time. I wish we had wings.
I wish rainwater was beer. But it isn't.

It's what you don't hear. Once the site of a Civil War battle, Utoy Creek's cascade now masks the sound of automobiles above: an urban aural illusion.

Since 29 August 2009, on four-hundred and eighty-four consecutive Saturdays, I have done this, here at YFGF:
Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of photos taken (or noted) by me, posted on Saturdays, and often, but not always, with a good fermentable as the subject.

The photo above, of a beer and hummus, was the first I duly mentioned. Since then, a plurality of the selections has been of beer, breweries, brewers, and that ilk. Recently, however, that emphasis has evolved to more of a photographic bent, often now not of a "good fermentable."

Here's a quick look at how my selections have changed since 2015.

2018201720162015
Beer12283434
Brewery581620
Cask ale25010
Wine0103
Whiskey/Liquor1002
Food3485

The figures don't sum 52 per year, as a category may be a subset of another: such as breweries also under beer, food also under brewpub/brewery, etc. But the trend has unmistakenly been to other away from fermentables.


Since 12 April 2012, beginning with "Arlington Crepuscule," I have also been uploading to Instagram. All above provisos apply.

But enough of this photographic solipsism. Here is a recapitulation of the fifty-two images I chose as Pic(k)s of the Week in 2018. Clicking on any of the thumbnails will get you to the image and its story.

Later today, Pic(k) of the Week refreshes for 2019. And so it goes.

Scarne Beer Commercial 1972 - YouTube

In 1972, John Scarne (SKAR nee) —recognized by many as one of the greatest card magicians ever— appeared in a Schaefer beer television ad.

To all my readers, thank you for reading this blog in 2018 (and, some of you, longer than that). In 2019, may you enjoy more than one good fermentable (safely).

From YFGF to you, "Happy New Year."
Thomas Cizauskas (Chiz OW skuss)

After sunset on 22 December 2018, in Atlanta, Georgia, looking west toward Midtown from the Poncey-Highland neighborhood.

The Full Cold Moon had just begun its rise when I snapped the photo, but further to the southeast (out-of-frame, to the left). Additionally, the 2018 winter solstice had occurred only the day before. This rare, proximate syzygy (solstice plus full moon) will not occur again until the winter of 2029.
