Stars and Stones

No photowalk for you….

There is a Photowalking group in Utah, oddly enough named Photowalking Utah. I have wanted to go and attend one of these.  Last month I had to “help” someone move, only they never showed up so I sat on the doorstep waiting and watching the time go by.  This month there was a walk in downtown Salt Lake, while I was, and am not interested in architectural photography I want to go to get ideas and make contacts.  Well we had a Make-A-Wish party for the daughter of a friend at work, and I had planned on being dropped off at the walk and when it was over catch a bus home.  Well, we got done with the party and got downtown to drop me off and I couldn’t find my wallet, which I KNEW that I had at the party.  After driving back and looking high and low for the wallet I gave up, and drove home to find it on my nightstand (compliments of your friendly neighborhood idiot).  There is one next week (on Food Photography the area I am most interested in) that I don’t know if I will be able to go to since I will have a pretty heavy duty training going on that week.  It’s like the heavens and earth are conspiring against me. 

I am actually worried that somehow I am sabotaging myself.  The thought of going out and meeting new people make me a little sick to my stomach.  As all of the regular readers of my blog know, my people skills take a little getting used to, and I am always worried that I will say the wrong thing to the wrong person.  Well because experience has shown me that I will.  Anyway, that is way to much self-inspection for one post.

Also Stars and Stones is a quote from my favorite author, Jim Butcher, and his The Dresden Files series. If you ever want a good series both Dresden Files (it starts out a little rough but at book three it really takes off) and the Codex Alera (which quite possibly is my all time favorite set of books) make some GREAT reads.

One response to “Stars and Stones”

  1. I hope you find a way to go. I really want to go to it and have blocked my schedule out so that I can go…the true question: Will my car be able to make it?

    When you rent a lens for pictureline, do you do it online or in person?
