Which Is Good
Monday. I picked up Mr. E at the Rockridge BART station this morning and we drove over to Mr. S's house up in the Oakland hills, they to start a batch of beer, I to watch and shoot the odd picture. Although my father brewed beer when I was much younger and Mr. W of comix fame did the same, I have never seen it done from start to finish. Oh, and we drank some of the commercially available product provided by Mr. S: I, being a goody two-shoes, sticking to a couple of cans of Guinness over the course of the afternoon while they, well they tapping their shoes to a different beat sampling the products of various commercial ventures throughout the afternoon.

Still, a good time was had by all and all had a good time. This on a work day Monday, we realized: I retired, Mr. S retired, Mr. E thinking he was going to have to get another job one of these days (being a youngster in his early fifties with kids to put through college), but able, seemingly without effort, to ease into this “retired” making beer on a Monday business. Back home in time to watch the PBS Newshour with the head and sinuses fucked, otherwise feeling good. Which is good.

The photograph was taken at the 2007 Sistahs Steppin' in Pride Parade in Oakland with a Nikon D2Xs mounted with a 70 - 200mm f 2.8 Nikkor VR lens at 1/640th second, f 3.5, ISO 100.
