I beg the indulgence of the non-photographers in the audience as I spend an inordinate amount of time this week playing around with the camera rental equipment I am testing out. I am performing due diligence on the news of the day but in this silly season a lot of it is the same old, same old.
Yes the Republicans are preparing to fold like a cheap suit and allow the Dems to pass horrendously awful legislation. Yes, everyone talks about how awful Andrew Cuomo and Gavin Newsom are as governors but they’ll elect guys just like them next time around. Yes the vaccine no longer prevents COVID but we must blame non-vaxxers for preferring to skip it. Yes, the citizens of large cities are recoiling in horror at the unending violent crime wave that has turned their neighborhoods into shooting galleries but they’ll vote for the next Lori Lightfoot or Bill de Blasio as soon as a Republican jails all the murderers for them. Really just the same old thing.
The big news of the day is Camera Girl was cleaning the pool and she found an American Giant Millipede at the bottom of the pool still alive. She has rescued it and set it up in a cage and Princess Sack-of-Potatoes has named it Milly. Ah, just what we needed another exotic pet. At least I’ll follow up with some photos at some point.
So I will try to put together some meaningful non-photographic content today but please bear with me while I use my rental time productively. And if the zombie apocalypse does occur today at least I’ll have camera in hand to document it.
