How Berkeley Can You Be? Parade
How Berkeley Can You Be? parade

October 3rd, 2004

By Pretty Fast
I was thinking of going over to the Berkeley darkroom on Tuesday to run more prints, since this is the only time I'll have available between now and Wednesday to prepare for my class. But I want to see the Vice Presidential debate. I think I'll see the Vice Presidential debate. Class on Monday, debate on Tuesday, another class on Wednesday. Plenty of time to make prints after that. We're in the end game of this Presidential race, my kiddies, and I don't want to miss any of the main events.

You seem to be in a good mood.

Indeed. A good day today. A bit funky yesterday. I watched the drinking Friday night - dinner at Foley's, Dame Edna and the rest. A total of two Guinness with dinner, another half after the show - but I guess just breaking the routine and getting to bed three hours later was enough to do the funky bit. This morning a walk down to the usual cafe for breakfast (a bit later than usual) to buy a New York Times to see if they had anything on Richard Avedon's death in Texas last Friday. First Cartier-Bresson, a founding father of 35mm, and now Avendon, a founding father of medium format. Two of the iconic photographers of the twentieth century. Lets you know how many years you may have left with a shutter. Persevere, youngster, persevere.

How's your weekend been? Mine's gone by pretty fast.

The banner photograph was taken at the How Berkeley Can You Be? parade with a Nikon f3 mounted with a 105mm f 1.8 Nikkor lens on Kodak Tri-X.
