i'm back

did you miss me?
 lawd knows
 if you follow me
 on Instagram
 you didn't

 I swear
 we did more
 than eat

 great weather the first two days
 followed 
by
 rain
 lots
 of
 rain
 wet rain
 rain
 that makes
 toting
 using
 a BIG camera
 with
 a BIG lens
 tough

 constantly
 wiping it down
 snuggling it under my coat
 in between
 shots

 shooting a lot of images
 out the Element window
 silently
 thanking
 my husband
 for
 the BIG lens

 I need to digest the trip
 do a little editing
 before
 I tell you
 about
 how
 wonderful
 my visit
with
 my friends
 Mary
 Jay
 and
 Enzo
 in Cincinnati

 you know

 that artsy city
 in
 the great
 State of Ohio



I leave you with this wet image

  5. I haven't been on IG for awhile now and didn't think to check you there. D-uh. So glad to hear you had such a good time. Your wet image is full of the prettiest bokeh and I love the colors.

  6. Back in the day they'd say "keep your powder dry." Now I guess its "keep your camera dry."

  8. I am not on Instagram but I knew you were away so I wasn't worried about you:-) So glad you had a fun getaway because I know you really wanted/needed it. Welcome home!

  9. Rain is better than snow. Well, maybe not for cameras, but in general, sez I, looking out at our snow.
    I've been thinking about you, not because of your jaunt, but because we have some of your photos as prompts at Real Toads again, and I had a lot of fun with them.
    Thanks, Daryl!

  11. So that's where you've been, nice! Looking forward to hearing about it. I think Aimee must be following on instagram, she showed me a pic of you wearing a cute little hat.

  12. Daryl, glad you are home safe and sound! Sounds like Ohio was getting our weather. It's been very wet here! This morning there's a little snow mixed in with it! Hope it doesn't amount to anything!

  14. a trick a photographer on the trail passed along to me...
    at the beginning of a sudden downpour.... carry a small
    plastic garbage bag and you can keep your camera and lens dry.
    funny thing is since I started doing that on the trail it hasn't rained..
