It’s nice to have a new pocket camera for taking snapshots out of the plane window. It was cloudy most of the way so I didn’t see Mt. Thielsen, Diamond Peak, or Crater Lake. I snapped this shortly after takeoff from PDX.
As I walked in the gentle mist in Folsom, I heard someone say, “This is Portland weather.” It made me feel right at home. :-)
This week I traveled to Folsom and back. I sat in seat 17E both ways.
Heading south, I took some pictures. Heading north, it was too dark so I talked to the Kiwi next sitting to me. Unfortunately, the engine noise was too loud for reasonable conversation so I retreated back to my book.
I discovered I need another camera. The last P&S quit not long ago because it got junk somewhere inside its lens. I replaced it with a similar P&S we had sitting around. It takes good pictures — some of the time. Other times, it doesn’t focus, even when set in landscape mode. There’s no warning and it’s impossible to tell from its little screen. Melissa told me it was dropped on its lens and came apart. So I’m back to shopping for a camera.
The trip to Sacramento was uneventful. Well, maybe not quite. I did sit by Tim, who works sqrt(2) cubes from me, and learn what he does. And I was able to identify Mt. Thielsen, the unknown peak from last week’s post.
