Spring is Minutes Away!
According to the website almanac.com, Spring in the Northern Hemisphere starts at 5:24pm today. In my time zone, that’s 12 minutes from now!
Oh Happiness! Oh Bliss! Oh Rapture! The son of a bitch we call Winter is going to officially end in just a few minutes! 11 minutes to go!
Now if only we could just flip a switch and have warm, happy weather right on queue instead of weeks more of cold and dreary awful. Sure, Winter is ending, but the crappy conditions are going to stick around for a while. It’s Spring, how about no more ice at all until next December? Can we make that happen? Nine minutes to go!
Eight minutes to go now! I am so excited!
Seven minutes to go! I can’t wait! It’s almost here!

More Fun with Lightroom Mobile
Forgive me. It’s a lazy Sunday at home and I am having fun being a nerd with film photos.
Here’s another before and after messing with Lightroom on my iPhone post. This time it’s the Spicket Falls Dam in Methuen, MA. Is the edited in Lightroom version better than the non-edited in Lightroom version?
Tenney Castle courtyard in Methuen, MA. This is from Dad’s camera with the cheap zoom lens. The next roll I shoot with my camera will use the same lens. I need to know if it’s going to work for me at my step daughter’s graduation in a couple of months.
Can I Fix a Disaster?
After messing with Lightroom on my iPhone yesterday I posed a question to myself: Can I use Lightroom to fix a disaster? The answer is a resounding no, though maybe if I actually knew what I was doing I could have better results.
Here is a terrible shot from Epcot Center:
Yet another clock picture. The camera was in aperture priority mode (what the Nikon FG-20 actually calls Auto mode) and clearly the light meter was looking at the sky and not the foreground. Oh well.
Here is my very funny attempt at fixing things with Lightroom on my iPhone:
I mean, I guess it’s a success as you can see the things that were buried in shadow, but it’s a fail in that they just look ridiculously awful. If I knew what I was doing, would I have done better? Probably not. The picture was a disaster after all…

Record Every Month
I have three songs underway for this month’s Record Every Month challenge. As of this evening two of them are ready for vocals. There may be car music tomorrow.
It’s supposed to be nice and sunny tomorrow morning too so photos are a possibility. It’s going to be cold though. No ocean, but maybe around town? Can I do car music and golden hour pics in the same morning? Maybe we will find out. I have about 18-20 shots left in the roll that’s in Dad’s camera. I’d like to finish that off before I start using the fresh roll that’s in my camera. If I go out with a camera it will be Dad’s with the 50mm lens.
We will have to see what time I get up tomorrow. I’ll let you know.
Did I Over Do It?
This is a scan of one of my crappy pictures. The only edits are the auto setting in Apple Photos.
This is the same image after I screwed around with it in Lightroom on my iPhone.
I over did it, right? Like, big time?
The Spicket River Looking All Mighty
I really want to shoot some film today. I might be taking a drive into Cambridge, and if I do and if the daylight is okay, I might take a short stroll through Harvard Square and I might bring Dad’s Pentax K1000 and a roll of film or two with me and see what happens. No promises though. It’s still kinda cold out there. We’ll see.
