Today started cold and frosty. During Gilligan’s constitutional, we paused to appreciate the crunching grass. Because of self-isolation, I skipped Starbucks and headed into the spare bedroom to work. By noon, the weather had warmed up1It got over 60! so a solo walk through the neighborhood seemed like a good idea. Thanks to COVID-19, work had scheduled a virtual company picnic for today, so I pulled out my phone, logged into Zoom, and brought them along with me.
I’ve been working from home since late November or early December. For most of our clients, this was their first week of trying it. The following bingo card would have been fun in our conference calls.
According to my yearly practice, here are a few of my favorite pictures I posted here over the past year. A couple of these actually have people in them. Sadly, I took only one of these in the second half of the year, and that was July 4th. Cannon Beach accounts for 40% of these.
Having posted more than nine pictures to Instagram this year, my “top nine” actually might have some significance.
After lunch, I walked back to work. Taking a short detour through “Circle Park” I made another pass at the daffodils from yesterday. I think I like this shot better. Now I need a blue sky for the background.1And an assistant to hold the diffuser. And a mat to lie on so I’m not just holding the camera low, aiming blind, and hoping for luck. And maybe someone to block the traffic because I’d be lying in the road. :-)
Along the walk, I also took a “not a sky shot.” Can you tell what it is?
I took Meisa and my camera for a short walk this afternoon. It’s only 47 and a little windy, but that’s as warm as it’s supposed to get here in Hillsboro today. As a plus, the overcast conditions softened the shadows for the pictures.
