You never know where story ideas will come from. Recently we installed two cameras outside. I have a blind driveway, I've always wanted to be able to see who drives up without having to run upstairs to look out a window or open a door.
I never really knew what was going on in my front yard. And it's been fun. I like being able to see when packages are dropped off. Here are some other things we've "captured" recently.
I thought we captured proof of alien life when I saw this. I have no idea what this is. The bug looks gigantic on the camera. Hopefully, he and I won't meet. I may send this to the "What's Bugging You" team to see what kind of critter this is.
I'm not sure if this little guy was saying hello or attacking the camera. I'm pretty sure he's not the blue bird of happiness.
And then there are the deer who eat my azaleas and tulips. They come through about every other night for a visit.
My private investigator, Delanie Fitzgerald, and her sidekick/computer hacker Duncan Reynolds, use security cameras in their investigations. I'm going to expand the use in the next book and add some of the funny things that they might capture. I'm enjoying the videos from the unexpected in my front yard. And you never know where a story idea will come from...
