So Much for Finding Balance
I’ve been really busy over the last couple of weeks. Saturday morning was a 10K event of sorts to ensure that I am staying up with staying in shape, as well as giving the foot a really good trial run. It passed. Saturday night was spent with medical personnel with family members (all are well–it was a planned thing), but it meant very little sleep and with little rest I didn’t want to take the chance of wandering around with a few thousand dollars worth of equipment. So I stayed home.
Knowing that this is a holiday weekend of sorts, I took advantage of some late afternoon shooting today at Medina River Natural Area in the southern part of San Antonio. Many damsels, a few butterflies, and a couple of photogenic reptiles made for a fun afternoon. I will try to post more images later, but for now this Rose-bellied Lizard (Sceloporus variabilis) image will have to tide you over. For those who care about tech details, it was ISO 200, f/5.6 @ 1/160th on the tripod.
My hope is to keep it relatively local again tomorrow. Maybe Mitchell Lake, maybe someplace else. Somewhere minimizing the driving and maximizing the photography.
Yes, the being really busy is related to the news I still haven’t shared. Perhaps while I’m taking it easy on Sunday I will do a post on that as well.
