There was a brilliant lightning storm yesterday evening. Lightning bolts blazing directly over the house. I went to the studio to try to photograph some of the display and, a few minutes in, the camera battery died. I grabbed another camera and that battery was dead too…couldn’t believe it! My other cameras didn’t have the quick reflex capacity and so I gave up and went back downstairs and sulked. When will I learn to always keep the batteries charged to the max?
It’s been the typical Vancouverness round here today. Rain all day and then it gets sunny just in time for the sunset.
By that time the batteries were charged up on the cameras.
People say that photographing sunsets is such a cliche. Stuff ‘em all…it’s like photographing kittens… and who doesn’t like kittens? Okay, don’t answer that…lol.
I’m feeling alone, (missing Robbie), but then my good friend Julie posted this beautiful little spoken word
video. I had seen it before…several times…but forgot about it. So I played it a couple of times; once while watching and a second time with eyes closed, you know, just to listen to the words.
Thank you Julie. XO Feeling much better now.
At night I played the old 2am game:
Me: I want to sleep!
Brain: Not just now. We haven’t finished analysing every stupid decision you’ve ever made, and we haven’t even started on the future scenarios which may happen as a result of future stupid decisions!
Why is it that if a light bulb burns out I never have a proper replacement? It’s not like light bulbs are expensive or take up oodles of room.
It’s probably a law like Murphy…say…the Edison Law: If you have a supply of light bulbs then the one which will burn out will be the one you do not have!
This is a close variation on the Volta Law: You will never have a charged battery when you need one.
I have a feeling this is universal.
Linking with Nancy for all the randomness.
