On The Road Again

A Friday Riddle:

I am not at work
I am not at home
Where am I?

Somewhere else of course!

I’m off to Providence Canyon State Park near Columbus to do a little camping this weekend. I’m kind of excited because the weather should be great, there will be beer to be consumed, and I’ve never spent any time in that part of the state before. The park is also supposed to have some incredible scenery so I’ll be toting the camera around to see what I can capture.

The Stroll Was Good, My Pictures Notsomuch
I met up with at least twenty other Flickrites last night for a photostroll that started at Willy’s. I thought that it was definitely going to be my night when I scored rock star parking directly across from the restaurant on Piedmont.

The group was very fun and friendly, and after finally getting it together for a group photo we splintered into sub-groups. I joined a group of four who headed up toward Peachtree, while the majority of the folks walked toward Piedmont Park. I really need to work on my night shooting and post-process the handful of shots that I captured last night. Oh yeah, I also might want to RTFM for my fancy-pants flash so I can use it better…

ITP Flickr Pic
No pictures from last night yet. I haven’t had time to process anything and I’m looking to hit the road ASAP.

I Love You

Damn You Google!
I’ve been contemplating my next cellphone for some time. Just when I thought that I’d be walking down the Blackberry path, Google announces Gmail for Java-enabled phones. Arrrgh. I am glad they’ve done this, but it now opens up many more options again.

Lessons Learned From Survivor (aka Spoiler Alert Stacy)
I thought last night’s episode of Survivor was fucking brilliant!

Never, and I mean never, tell your tribe that it’s every man for themselves when the tribes merge. That was just idiotic. Of course I didn’t pick up on this and pick Brad for departure, I thought that it was going to be Caucasian Adonis’ (aka Adam) turn to go.

I’m here to say that I thought that allowing players to mutiny was a fantastic idea. I can see Candace doing it to be with Adam, but Jonathan was a delusional as the Metal Head who thought he had love at first sight with Candace when he stepped off his mat.

I laughed my ass off when Probst told them that two of the team members had to go in a barrel and be rolled over logs. Too funny. Ozzy and Yul are monsters, their ability to perform the challenge was impressive.

Then there was Jonathan snarking at Probst when he said that they were wasting their cannon balls during the elimination challenge. I lost it when Probst replied “Jonathan getting frustrated by me.” Absolute comedy gold!!!

Tune in next week when Candace and Adam rekindle their love affair and get it on (cue the Barry White music)…

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – pretty good
Current Music – none, I am watching Top Chef
Website Of The Day – These people know how to soot in any light. In fact they specialize in something that I’d love to get better at, Concert Shots .
Exercise (b)Log – walking, that’s the best I could do.

    I wish I could go camping this weekend, but painting trim, removing wallpaper, and Falcons tickets got in the way. I hope you bring back lots of good stories…..

    Smoove D, I think I might have accidentally deleted your comment with the spam.

    The Flickr group is not super secret. The strolls are not formal, just keep an eye on the Atlanta Flickr Group and show up to the announced strolls that interest you.

    Thanks for the Survivor recap. I was out of town and forgot to tape. 🙂 I’m sorry to hear that Brad went. I liked him.
