Ah yes, Spring has not fully sprung here. The pollen says it has, the snow / rain / sleet says otherwise.
A front moved in yesterday and brought cooler air into town. Higher elevations have snow. In town it’s rain and occasionally sleet. It’s also just a little chilly here today! Brrrr!
Since the weather isn’t on my side (for photography) I’ve spent the bulk of the day at the Airstream. Paused a movie to take a call and then decided to blog before getting back into the movie. Just not holding my attention. Not a bad flick, but a little slow moving for me. Bangkok Dangerous.
I suppose I shouldn’t complain about the weather. With the rain in the pollen is down. I’m feeling human again. If only for a short while. Once the pollen cranks up again I’m sure my gut will resume the uproar. But today I have a reprieve!
So, what to do on a rainy day in an Airstream. Movies, cleaning, reorganizing, and playing with the new 5D. I’ve still got a good bit to learn about it. #1, I need to get it to work properly with my 580EX. On the 40D the flash is automatic with the camera, and when I popped it over to the 5D it went to manual.
I’ve got some additional reading to do. The manuals that come with these things aren’t the greatest. I usually rely on the Digital Field Guide series, but the book on the 5D isn’t out yet. So I’m left to experiment. Can’t be that hard, right? 🙂
Beyond the 5D reading I have other books on the list to go through. Trail guides for AZ, a few books on the Page and Utah areas, and some miscellaneous fun reading. There’s a little more for a rainy afternoon!
Well, with that I’m off to more R&R.
Today’s shots were produced with the 5D and my new 17-40mm lens. Pretty much equivalent to the 10-22mm on the 40D. I’m liking it!
Love the “Twinkie”! What’s that little heater doing there, hmmm?!!
Rich, Just checking in and the photos of the inside of the Airstream have left me in tears!
Sorry we can’t have a morning visit,
A little behind on posts for me but I came across this video at TED.com about Christopher Deem and his redux of Airstream. Thought it might be of interest.
Best to you all.
