Back to work ... This day may bring its fair share of surprises. A database upgrade over the weekend would seem to have gone well - proof of the pudding lies in this morning.
My friend Mark has two little boys - and they are both in Pop Warner football. The 8 year old is a quick little blond haired zephyr that nobody can catch and the 10 year old is WAY too big for himself - he hasn't 'found' himself, yet. He still doesn't know how to be so big, and so he appears somewhat clumsy. However. He does prove to be rather immovable when run into by linemen from the other team and running backs bounce off him like BB's. It's going to be fun watching him when he finally catches up with his body, and learns how to use it.
I took an hour, yesterday, and played official team photographer for the younger boy's game. I shot over 400 photographs. At 5 shots per second, one has to learn how to take one's finger off the shutter QUICKLY - or else there's a lot of useless stuff that gets photographed. I love the "Sports Mode" on the 30D, but sometimes that sensitive shutter release is a bit disconcerting.
I may publish some of the shots this Wednesday. For Wordless Wednesday. We'll see.
I have a blogger friend who is moving to India this coming weekend. She'll likely be there for a couple of years. After India, there may be some China in her future. I am going to miss her. And I owe her a CD of pictures I shot at a party at her house and I MUST get them to her by Friday. And I will. I hope.
This is last week of September. The last few days, actually - there isn't a full week of September left. Why do these weeks and months keep going by so fast?
