‘ve had two useless days in a row. A friend of mine says there are no useless days. She’s wrong.
Let’s just start with today. We had a power failure before noon. The power companies estimate for restoring power was 4:20 pm today. To their credit they had us up and running around 1:15 pm.
When the computer shuts down like that it takes forever to get things running smoothly again. Apps are funky as well. It took me a good thirty minutes just to load this one. Even now I’m getting speed mystery type. That’s when you type, nothing shows up, and then a whole line of type appears.
At this rate, I’ll get about 15 minutes worth of work done in just four hours.
I decided to publish good pictures that you haven’t seen, no matter where I made them. We’ll start today with the City of New Orleans and our massive downtown. Massive if you live in some little place.
I’m not going to be photographing little pictures for a while. It’s just not the same without Sophie Rose.
his picture is more about seeing than anything else. If you can’t see this you’d better quit photograph or else you are blind.
This is a fairly accurate representation of what I saw when I blindly stopped the car and made the photograph.
I did darken the picture which brought out more color. But, I didn’t add to the color. In fact, I scrubbed the mid-tones of the red on the ship to bring the color out.
That’s what I did, alright.
Oh yeah, the other useless day. Yesterday.
I awoke at about the normal time. I worked until about 10am when I started feeling groggy so I thought a little morning nap might be in order.
I awoke at just before 2:30pm.
I’ve been talking with some friends and they’ve been doing that too. We believe it’s our way of coping with extreme stress.
That’s better than a stroke or a heart attack.
