And a little rest

I took the weekend off from taking pictures.  It was just too darned hot and I was worn out after trying to shove five days of work into about three after missing Monday from the salt mines and then losing most of another day to wish another long-time employee a well-earned retirement.

Both days of the weekend were spent with knocking down the Hunnadew list, processing some images, and looking into a business matter or two.  The image processing part was definitely the funner of the activities, as I completed harvesting two more of this year’s shoots.  This brought another dozen or so images into the portfolio.  Of course I have last week’s set of images that I still have not done the initial walk-through on, but maybe as the week goes on I can do that as well.  One step forward, one step back.  But hey, at least I have some print-ready images 🙂

I’m not sure what if any additional blogging or photography work I am going to get done this week.  It looks like another fast-paced week of fun and frivolity in the workplace  if today was any measuring stick.  Maybe if I’m lucky I’ll get to process an image or three as the week goes on and just be satisfied to get out and do some more shooting this weekend.

About the Image:
This male Pin-tailed Pondhawk (Erythemis plebeja) was a life list add from Mitchell Lake last weekend.  Needed a little help from my friends to identify him.  Tech details were the Standard Gear, tripod mounted, ISO 400, 1/800 at f/8.  Much larger aperture than normal, but the distance from which I shot gave me the DOF I needed without a smaller aperture.
