Lately things have been busy.
I mean "drive to work, skip NPR, forget how you got there, sit down in the morning, look out the window and it's 6pm busy." Well, busy is good. I actually just looked at Google News to see if anything important happened this week. Nope, same old boring world. Back to my Creative Screenwriting podcast episodes on the iPod.
This past week I got to go on a little hike to shoot some video and stills for the town. It was a nice little respite and a good test of equipment that is normally used in the confines of medical facilities!
Careful not to drop anything in the local raging rapids, I spent a few hours with nature - a place I enjoy being every Spring and Summer, though usually without a proper HD camera.
A Brief Foray Out of the Office
Ok, back to obstetrics and gynecology....
Thanks for reading.
I know, not as clever as some of my headlines. Today was a day to unwind, and take advantage of perhaps the last perfect Fall day of the season. Mid-60's, sunny, leaves at peak color.
Woke up to a typical Sunday. Hearty Breakfast. No shaving on the weekend, thank you.
Meet the Press makes breakfast a bit less appetizing.
Leaves are changing...and falling.
It's a beautiful day. Don't let it get away.
Thanks for the advice Mr Hewson.
Destination: Meriden, CT - just a few miles away. Hubbard Park, designed by none other than Frederick Law Olmstead, has miles of trails, part of the extensive Metacomet Trail over some beautiful terrain.
As with most of my outings, I set off intending to relax, explore, get some much needed exercise and perhaps get some memorable images, both in my mind's eye and in my trusty camera.
From the top you can see the Long Island Sound to the South and Mt. Tom in Massachusetts to the North.
On all accounts, mission accomplished. If you're ever in central CT check out our miles of trails, greenways and parks.
Before I sink my life savings into a Canon 5D Mark II, I thought I'd do a dry run on the cheap. Still a nice memory of a nice day out.
Thanks for reading.
Fresh air is a beautiful thing. I'm gonna sleep like a baby...
