Under Construction
San Francisco Gay Pride Parade

December 17th, 2003

Earthquake Country
Sitting here, feet up, Ms. Emmy on my lap, listening to the radio over the Internet when we were briefly jolted by a small (three point something or other they say) quake. Ms. Emmy was not amused and scooted toward the bedroom before turning and sitting with a worried look on her face. I continued to sit on the chair during the very brief moments of the quake, brief yes, but long enough to wonder if I were being stupid by not moving: what if it turned out to be the "Big One", books flying, buildings sliding into the street? Hi ho, around we go, in Oakland.

But it wasn't. Not yet. "Pre-shocks"? Are there not predictor shocks as well as after shocks? Ah, well. Wednesday, a week before Christmas. I've got to get my act together and send some cards and stuff. Tomorrow. Maybe Friday. Here in earthquake country.

The photograph was taken at the San Francisco Gay Pride parade with a Nikon F5 and 135mm f 2.0 Nikon (Nikkor) lens on Kodak TMAX 400.
