How much of a holiday is today?

Good morning.  I took a bunch of pictures just now, but the light changed before I realized something this camera can do and so I will have to try again tomorrow.  I can hand hold the camera in low light without a flash.  I have a tripod, but there is something liberating about not having to use it.  These are two pictures which hang in the bedroom, and you can see my Christmas lights and the window behind me in the reflection.  You can even see the bricks in the air shaft beyond the window.  God, I wonder what else it can do that I don’t know about?

Also, I know zip and I mean NOTHING about post processing.  I’ve seen what people can do and I could really make my pictures look so much better.  I should learn how to use Photo Shop.

Plans for the day: call audio forensics guys back, go to the gym, get together with Howard … that’s enough.  For a holiday.  Also, no offense Italian people, who I love (and who are so good looking) but Columbus Day, with what we know now, it’s just a little weird.  But parades are great.  Nothing wrong with a parade.
