Here In Oakland

Art & Life


April 30, 2017


Sunday. I was tired last night, this driven home by my total disinterest in finishing yesterday's entry, leaving it to this morning when I cobbled the minimum together and posted. So we got in our exercise yesterday at the March and it was letting me know I'm behind on the exercise I should be getting. If I want to continue to shoot pictures for any period of time. So we'll see how we go.

Ho, ho.

You can say that, but the right leg is aching this morning. How long since that's happened? Be interesting to know if I'd been out on a similar shoot the day before it first arrived so many months ago.

Still, to bed early enough to awaken just before six, the entire right leg and feet getting my attention. Been a while since I've had to deal with that. Up easily enough to drive to breakfast, all three papers in tow, to have the Eggs Benedict again. Didn't want anything else.

It was up into the low eighties yesterday and they're saying low seventies today, although today's sun seems every bit as bright. We'll see. They're saying it will be up again into the eighties by Wednesday. Nothing on the schedule today, a May Day march scheduled in San Francisco tomorrow, but the day today is clear. So we'll maybe head over to the lake, but otherwise vegetate to see if that doesn't help the right leg get better. A more than good rationalization for doing diddly squat you'd think.

Yesterday's photographs?

Ah, right. They're not yet done.

Later. They now say it hit eighty degrees today, one degree less than yesterday's high, but I still didn't get outside to experience it. Didn't even think to go to the lake. A little tired and so a couple of attempts at a nap, but then finally sat down and finished the Climate March pictures, thinking I'll put the web pages together later. Maybe later, maybe tomorrow, but there were indeed two sections. Barely.

Watched the two older episodes of Elementary they run on Sundays and that's about it for television this afternoon.

Evening. Completed everything but the last section's thumbnail links and we'll put that off until tomorrow. Maybe an hour or so and they're done. The right leg is better. Good. It took a week that last time it decided to grab my attention.

The photo up top was taken Saturday at the Oakland Climate March at Lake Merritt with a Nikon D5 mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
