Homage to my old boots

We completely cleaned out our garage a couple of weeks ago to make space for a video shoot of our band. Tucked away amidst the years of accumulated clutter were my old Santa Rosa Brand work/hiking boots. I’m pretty sure I bought them in the very early 80s, and I obviously put a whole lot of miles on them before they were retired to the garage. Now, they just look cool.

I couldn’t resist a little pastoral treatment for the old waffle stompers.

Amaryllis on Mother’s Day

The control wheel has gotten flaky on my “old” trusty Canon G11. I’m pretty sure this video shows the simplest, and definitely the cheapest, fix. But anyway… Yesterday, while I was trying to find a solution for the wheel problem, I had the camera out so I took it outside and grabbed a few shots of our red amaryllis. I metered for a “high key” look for these first two shots.

And because the G11 does great macro, I had to get in close.
