This is one of my reworked archive pictures. Hong Kong taxis waiting for fares at the airport. The line was long and I got bored after an 18 hour plane ride so I started making a few pictures. I wonder how many hours was taken off my life by flying too close to the sun on thes long rides. By dead reckoning, I think I crossed the Pacific Ocean 28 times.
It’s a wonder that I could make a picture after that long ride. I felt like I was going to fall down, I was seeing side ways and my head was spinning. Sometimes that’s the best time. I was a complete blank slate which is what I use my pre-shoot routine to do.
Here’s what happened a couple of days ago. It’s Apple’s and my fault. Apple downloaded a OS upgrade in the dead of night. I was using a trackpad, but I could barely control it. Anytime I got close to anything sensitive on my desktop or a web page things went wonky. I’d accidentally touch something and open a new page, one that I had no intention of opening.
So, I went into accessibility and reset the two things Apple suggested. No joy. So I went back and unchecked three buttons that controls finger swipes. Of course, that shut down the trackpad.
The reason I used the trackpad is because the “magic mouse” stopped working. I knew that I could regain functionality with a mouse. No mice in the house. All laptops. So I ordered one that was due in two days. It never arrived.
I have work to do.
So, I ordered another one from Wal Mart that was delivered a bout a half hour ago.
Big Brown will show up with yesterday’s delivery sometime today.
