Got my quarterly checkup and blood tests done. So far no change in the indicators. In three months I’ll get another CAT scan and we’ll see if they’re changing sizes or whatever. Except for having to get a shot once a month with a large gauge needle in the glutes (ouch) I’m doing well! Subject to change without notice…
Adding some of my photos to the blog as downloadable wallpapers. Feel free to use them! First up, a study I did of an industrial window I shot in a Cleveland, Ohio steel plant. All resolutions (including iPhone) available below. Right click on the image and select “Save Link As…”, otherwise, you’ll get the “Lightbox” version. I haven’t figures out how to turn it off selectively…
200 miles after getting all 8 drive tires replaced, I experienced what felt like a grenade going off under my truck. After pulling over, removing the upholstery from my sphincter, and going to look, I discovered this:
Nice! After waiting 2 and a half hours it was replaced and I was sent on my way. Ended up hunting a small truckstop up in Lincoln, NE without further incident. And I’m bushed!
The pictures in the set were all shot on film with my trusty Canon EOS 630 and various films including Fuji Reala, Kodak BW400CN and Ilford XP2.
I enjoy using this camera. I got it for $19 on EBay and once I cleaned up the shutter, it’s done very well. I use a Canon 28-200 zoom and a Tamron 19-35 zoom. My biggest problem has been getting decent scans from the few outfits out there who still develop film. Target has done the best job so far, but I’ve recently discovered that out good old public library has a scanner that will do film, both 35mm negative, slides and 120 format negatives. I’ll be trying it out next time I’m home.
We have a ditch behind the house, usually it’s just got a little dribble of muddy water in the bottom of it. After lots of rain, there was some nice clean water water flowing through and some almost transparent little fishes swimming through it. The only way I even noticed the fish was the darting little shadows on the bottom.
