Cold Case Files

liftoffI went to take photos of the lights down at the City Garden Last night. It was cold (and dark). The assistants all went to the Terrace Cafe and had warm deserts while I suffered the cold alone and undisturbed. There were supposed to be people singing Christmas Carols later but we beat it over to ~scape for appetizers and pasta bolognese.

The year and the decade are coming quickly to an end. We are looking for a level horizon and just seem to keep getting tossed around by events coming our way. As the song says, “Maybe next year will be better than the last.”

I wanted to take photos with the canoe today but the girls have the canoe transporting vehicle up in Chicago, today picking up furniture. I may have to go take photos of the kayak instead, though it seems like I already have plenty of those.  At least the sun is out today so I should also try to finish up the film in my Brownie Hawkeye Flash camera.

Right now I’m just taking it easy and enjoying the peace and quiet here at home. Well almost. Louis the Furtography dog is back and is his usual annoying self. He looks like a hobo and needs a bath. It’s Saint Nicholas day so don’t forget to put your shoes outside the door. If you’ve been good you might wake up to a treat.

I’m still waiting on the replacement for my Yongnuo RF-602 flash trigger transmitter. These things really do work well and are a bargain compared to some of the other options out there. Just remember my advise to order an extra set so that you have a backup in case one or the other stops working. It’s always a good idea to have extra batteries on hand for the same reason. Everyone in town will be out of stock on the day that you need them.

Time to get moving…
