My Non-Photographing Non-Photography Day
Well, my non-photography day turned out to be rather non-photographic after all. We've been suffering a heat wave in Wisconsin, and yesterday was the third day with the mercury crowding 100°. Naturally, the air conditioning in the car cut out at the onset of the heat. Years ago I explained to Zander, who was then six or seven, about mnemonics, and asked for his help in thinking one up to help me remember our license plate, which begins "FNP." Without much of a pause he said, "How about flying ninja turtles? Or funky nail polish." I've called the car Funky Nail Polish ever since. So our only real trip yesterday was to get Funky's coolant flushed and the oil changed, and to make an appointment to get the A/C fixed.
Apart from that, we hunkered in the house to wait out the miserable weather, and not much photography got done. I'm not enough of a hothead to swelter just for the sake of being contrary. Come to that, a lot of my days are non-photography days. I did have a digicam with me, though, and was not forced to immerse myself in the direct, unmediated experience of the muffler shop, savoring every moment.
So did anybody else take any pictures yesterday?
