Staying at home away from people is right up my alley.

However, I do miss being able to get what I want for the weeks’ groceries in one darn trip, but other than that and worrying a bit about my older friends and family, and watching church online…. things are not that different in the Maxwell House.  I do wish the media and experts would just say “we don’t know” instead of guessing. I had to laugh about the letting people out of jails to stop the spread, when the prisoners were in jail, they were contained but let’s make the decision to let them out and tell the to self contain. Obviously, they’re good at following laws. SMH. Buncombe county blows my mind. Tests sites closed because of not enough test and/or they don’t want you out if you’re sick to see if it’s covid you have symptoms for that brought you out to be tested. Just stay at home unless you can’t breathe, but don’t be around anybody just in case. They may as well say “we don’t want to know how many have it.”

I’ve been trying to get a photo of the turkey in our yard all fluffed out. The husband came in and said the male attacked his truck tire and chased the truck so I needed to be careful walking to the mailbox. So, I went out with my camera. I got more than I bargained for. #turkeynuggets

We went for a drive and I laughed when I saw a cow pasture with the cows all spaced out funny. Apparently, they were told the 6′ rule too.

The making of Chasing the Brown Mountain Lights cover for CC Tillery

Chasing the Brown Moutain Lights is the fourth book in the Brown Mountain Lights series.  The colors on this one came together so nicely.  The sister duo authors want to continue using the one photo I took of Brown Mountain from the first book, and just make changes to the colors and adding a second foreground image composite.

The plan: A B C D EFG…

June and I started on the Oklawaha trail. It had ice on the puddles, ribbon ice, and birds, including a hawk. I’ve seen ribbon ice before but never had my camera with me. I think it’s cool. I also like seeing the difference rotating the polarizer making the ice opaque or clear.

Nikon D3500 For Dummies Book

I get the title is catchy and I always learn something, but geez nothing like feeling stupid 🙂 I’d guess over half the book applies to all photography, not just the Nikon D3500 operation. I did visit Nikon’s own website (Japan) to watch a video, where I learned I’ve been pronouncing it wrong. It’s “knee-con instead of nigh-con” and some even say “Nick-on”.  Seems there are lots of post about how you’re supposed to say Nikon.  Bet they don’t care how you say it as long as you buy their brand.

If you are not a photographer… skip this one. You’ll likely be bored. Continue reading
