Times are Changing

Four years ago when I moved here they were plowing snow from our roads in October.  This year it was 55 degrees and foggy when I took a walk this morning at 7 am in December to make these pictures.  They are predicting that this December will be the hottest on record.  From the way the birds were singing this morning I think they believe spring has arrived.

In addition to the changing global climate with the wild swings in our weather, our politicians are equally wild and the outcomes could be worse than the climate ones, at least in the short-term, with global debt on the increase.

Since I moved here, I have tried close to a dozen different cameras.  Now I am only using one main camera plus a small pocket WP one and I’m not interested in another camera until the image quality of a smaller and lighter camera improves.  In this last year I bought more photography books than cameras.

I moved here with a desktop computer with a 22-inch monitor.  I then replaced it with a 17-inch laptop, and now I have replaced that PC with a MacBook Pro with only a 13-inch monitor.  I am still feeling my way through the changes in processing my pictures on such a small screen, but I think it is going to work just fine.  If not, I can add a larger monitor later.

As I get older and the future becomes less certain, I am changing and trying to minimize my actions as well as my stuff.
