Art & Life

Wednesday To sleep pretty much right away to awaken then at six-thirty, none of this awakening time after time during the night. Nice.

Up to walk to breakfast under party cloudy skies, the temperature not all that bad, passing by ten scooters placed out on the sidewalk before reaching the 580 Overpass. I guess people are using them, although the other scooter companies have given up on this area by the lake. Arrived at the usual time to enter the dining room, turn on the lights and settle in with the papers.

The two strips of bacon, scrambled eggs, country potatoes, toast, fruit cup and coffee this time, finishing up at nine to walk home feeling a little more frisky than I have recently and so took the usual set of pictures along with two or three others snapped more through enthusiasm than in finding anything particularly unique about the subjects.

Home to take the selfie in the lobby before settling in at the computer to post yesterday's entry and begin processing this mornings pictures.

Later. The two Georgia Senate races had been dominating my (and the world's) news interest yesterday, but the Trump supporter's march on the Capitol blew all that away and so spent the afternoon watching CBS and PBS cover the mayhem. We've instigated and supported the overthrow of countless foreign governments through the years and now we've had a President toy with overthrowing our own. I don't believe it would have succeeded, but what do I know?

To bed early and to sleep early. It's been a disturbing day.

The photo up top was taken at the 2016 San Francisco Pistahan Festival with a Nikon D5 mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
