Not Sure

Tuesday. A somewhat uneven night's sleep last night, awakening at six to get out the door well before seven, taking the older D2Xs camera in tow, more for still remaining pangs of paranoia than sense.

Still, a decent walk, a picture through one of the Grand Fare windows of an oyster bar and a wine display, another picture on the way back after they'd opened the outdoor seating area and the “camper trailer” where coffee is served at seven. Evidently the people who've built this thing have similar places that are successful in San Francisco and so probably know what they're doing. Not that any of this looks as if it won't work.

Back now, some overcast with the sun beginning to break through. A good start so far, be nice if the increased energy and interest of yesterday follow through today. Why not? A couple of things I need to get done, let's see what we can accomplish before noon.

Later. So far, so good. A walk over to the corner café by the apartment house construction site for a pastry and coffee, figuring I'd photograph both Latham Square and the Avévista apartments tomorrow, no need to do it more than every other day.

For some reason vacuumed the bedroom and hallway (been a while since I've done that) and caught up on dusting. Been a while for both. OK, sit down and put together another section of Latham Square photographs, at least bringing the Latham Square web sites current.

And the apartment house construction site? How far behind are we now?

Well, in checking, we've barely started the month of July.

Evening. And so the day has gone. A decent one looking back (we're writing this tomorrow morning and so the memory is still good, if not quite precise), some time on the tablet, as there was nothing I wanted to watch on television given the minimum number of stations I seem to allow myself. Have I ever subscribed to cable? Not sure.

The photo up top was taken at the Republic of China National celebration in front of the Oakland City Hall on Friday with a Nikon D4 mounted with a 24-120mm f 4.0 VR Nikkor lens.
