At the start of May I mustered the money for a digital SLR. There are exactly 2 problems with it:
- Carrying one while biking sucks, and I keep seeing interesting things while biking. Tonight as I was working back east on the North Shore Trail I emerged from behind the Science Center in time to see fireworks from the Pirates game at PNC Park reflected off one of the Gateway Center towers. No camera. I saw 2 trains pass on the Ohio Connecting bridge. No camera. I saw a bunch of ducks swimming in the river, with the sun dropping behind the horizon formed by the hills across the Ohio. No camera. Gah!
- It (like anything) can't take pictures of what the eye can see. At night it needs flash. In more light, it may still blur.
I've been archiving days in pictures at http://www.dementia.org/~shadow/InPictures . There's no front page there yet; When I get motivated, I'll fix that.
The galleries deliberately lack text. The pictures are a window into my world. Some of the pictures need no explanation. Some simply have none. Others, well, if you want the story, all I can say is you'll have to ask. Please do.
In fairness, I have commented on some of those days in protected entries. Comment if you want to be friended (create yourself an account, of course; they're free).
