Art & Life


June 26, 2017


Monday. Lights out fairly early, but not all that early. Couldn't find anything I wanted to watch on the tablet, the dozen or so films/television series programs I have open not calling out to me, more pushing me away than anything else. So why then the uneven night's sleep? Not terrible, but up a couple of times during the night. Not able to sleep. Why? Don't know, but sometimes it happens.

Awoke at ten to six. Took my time getting ready, the sky overcast, but some signs of blue to the south. Or west. Southwest. No East Bay Times on Mondays and so out the door and on to breakfast. Hungry, had the pork chop, country potatoes, eggs over easy, fruit cup, toast and coffee breakfast. Got it all down without much effort.

Back to the apartment taking one or two of the usual pictures. Still overcast now at nine-thirty, not sure what I'll put together for this Monday. A nap? After last night? Maybe. Maybe not. There are, certainly, yesterday's pictures to process. And so our week begins.

Later. I didn't get into processing the photographs until noon, but then continued on to finish all three sections of pictures. Just barely had enough for three, no more than one or two left over, but good. Didn't go out, listened to the news as I as processing and didn't entertain thoughts of a nap, so last night's sleep must have done the trick.

Evening. Finished the web sections and pages at the computer while listening to Democracy Now!, Father Brown and Inspector Lewis, just the thumbnail photo links left to get it finished. Tomorrow. I'm finding it easy to listen to programs on television while I'm working here at the computer. I have only half a clue with the distraction, half listening, not watching, not catching more than about half the dialogue, but it does make the time flow along and I forget what's happened with any particular program in about a week as it is, no matter if I've watched, listened or avoided it.

You're babbling.

It happens once you get into processing pictures, but now it's nine, I'm tired and ready to call this day done.

The photo up top was taken at yesterday's San Francisco LGBT Pride Parade with a Nikon D5 mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
