Photography Time
There were hints, of course, yesterday on Sunday morning, that daylight savings had kicked in. I figured it out eventually, tracking down the manuals for my watch and the car clock. Nice watch, nice clock, but needing a manual to figure out how to reset them? I guess. Here in Oakland.

This morning I awoke before the alarm went off, slightly hung over from having returned a CD to the owner of the sushi place down the way (you can't return a photography class CD to the owner of a sushi restaurant without drinking a great deal of sake and sampling the sushi now, can you?). Not a bad day this day, though; the sun bright and warm at 6:00PM as I'm writing, Ms. Emmy curled up on my lap. The teeth ache, but the teeth always ache and I tell myself they ache less as the days pass by, a miniscule amount less, but less (none the less) and it's been some time since I've had any vertigo. Good. This is good.

The project at work has begun to pick up steam and I suspect I am going to have to learn more in the next few months than I would like to learn about things they say are useful, some say even interesting, but useful or interesting it will subtract from my photography time. As I grow older I grow more jealous of photography time.

The photograph was taken last Saturday in Seattle with a Nikon D2h mounted with a 17-55mm f 2.8 Nikkor lens at 1/30th second at f 3.2 at ISO 500.
