Hard Time

I am having a hard time with the state of the universe today. It’s just difficult. Everything. Here are some pics from the gas station this morning on the way to work to try and distract me from all of the shit.


In happier news, Lily the kitten got out of the room we were hiding her in this morning. We were probably going to let her out today to see how the two cats handled integration. All is well. They have integrated. Robin the mother cat is adorable. Lily the kitten is adorable times 10.


I am going to go take a nap. I’m the overnight shift tonight.

Boston Tomorrow

We are going back into the city tomorrow. We failed to get into the New England Aquarium last time so we are going back with tickets in hand.

It’s not going to be quite as photowalkish for me this time. No film cameras are going, but a digital will. I’m 99% sure it will be my DSLR rather than the point and shoot, but both cameras are charging as I type this, just in case.

Patches will miss us.

The Point and Shoot Adventure

I went to the store this morning and I took the little point and shoot Nikon Coolpix S7000 with me. I think it did okay. I also think I misremembered what was going wrong before. I think the washed out over-exposed pics were the ones that I took outside, not inside. I think it was the time Jen and I were in Disney World together after one of her company trips that I noticed it. I probably set the white balance to daylight to compensate for it in the park. It’s all coming back to me.

So if it happens again, what do I do? Well, now that I know a little more about how exposure works, I will just drop the exposure compensation a stop or two (don’t I sound like I know what I am talking about? No?) and see if that helps.

Until that time, here’s a couple of test drive pics from this morning.

Is that a Mustang? I am not a car guy, but that might be a pink convertible Mustang. Crazy.

These all look okay to me. Nothing special, but also nothing gross. I guess it’s good to go for now?
