It’s September and summer is just about gone. The weather is pleasantly nice. I guess we have Harvey to thank for the cooler temps. Something good always comes out of the bad I always say and this is proof. This is my first Friday post in a long time. This summer I slacked way off in Blogosphere to the point you’d think I wasn’t around but I was. Mostly tending to the huge blog clean up repairing or deleting broken files, and other issues with my site. Photo ops were few and far between but I looked for them every chance I could. In June, Knoxville hosted the US National Cycling Championship. The winner from this competition represented the US at Tour de France or at least I believe that’s what I read. I failed to keep up that but anywho here are my Nikon moments!
Like so much of what’s going on in our life lately, we did not plan to go downtown to see if we could watch the bicyclists. It just happened. In fact, we were heading to the Super Wal-Mart to do our shopping when DH suggested the side trip to try to get a glimpse of action.
We hung around for just a few mintues before deciding to look for a better advantage point to see the racers better and boy am I glad that we did!
The first time I had my lens zoomed in too much, so I pulled back a bit to not only get that wide angel sense but when the cyclist went by me the action was very visible and that’s what I wanted!
There were a lot of vehicles following behind the cyclists. This is only a small sample but there they go and so being satisfied with the thrill a possible a once in life time shot to see such a competition, we headed on our way to tend to our errands. It really was exciting, though.
I’m sharing my Nikon experience with other global shutter-bugs joining the Skywatch Friday linky party!
This summer as I mentioned, I spent a lot of time cleaning up my blog and while going through my “Drafts” folder I found this vintage video that made me smile. Hopefully, it’ll make you smile, too!
bucket things-to-do list (I don’t have a “bucket list”. So, I changed this to “things-to-do list” instead.): 1. Bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies or oatmeal raisin cookies or both 2. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate loaded with lots of marshmallows.
2. If I came with a warning label, it would say “once home with you, can’t return, lose, or shake. I’m yours until the end of days – yours or mine, which ever comes first”. This is something DH discovered too late. lol
3. Truth be told, I’m really glad summer is coming to an end even though I tried my best to live in the moment and not wish my days away but I hate the heat! I’m really loving the cooler temperatures brought on by the hurricane season but feel horrible for anyone affected by Harvey and now Irma. Saying prayers for everyone in these areas. God bless!!
In closing, I want to ask everyone to say prayers for those affected by hurricane Irma. Some are going to get hit hard…really hard. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Be safe and God bless!
That’s a wrap for now. You’re invited to hit the dance floor with “Remembering 9/11” mewsic theme on Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me!
Have a laughtastic weekend!
