Got up at 6, came into city early (thru foggy coastal dawn) to hang out at Caffe `Roma before going to a 9:30 Rolfing appointment (am in dire need some structural integration). And here, folks, at this moment, is the essence of nerd-dom, I’m wi-fi’g it with a MacBook Pro (13″) laptop and listening to first bluegrass, now blues via Sirius satellite radio playing on an iPad with earphones. A long time comin’ but it’s all working now.
The above pic is a combo of two panoramas shot with a Sony Cybershot in my favorite North Beach cafe.
I tell you, this is so much fun, to explore the world, shoot photos and broadcast them like this. Baby, I’ve come a long way since I caught the essence of journalism from Captain Jack Patterson, our Lowell High School journalism teacher. Get the 5 “w’s” in the first paragraph,etc. The bug bit.
1. The tiny houses book is already way more than I anticipated. The material is more diverse than a book of just my photos, and it’s opening up new layout avenues. Got maybe 44 pages more or less ready. Putting pages together totally randomly. The book shapes itself.
2. The iPad is just a marvel. With 3G I can get on anywhere there’s cell phone reception. The battery is 8-10 hours. 24-hour non-commercial music alone is worth the price of admission. As I am ready to hit “Publish Post,” Junior Wells is singing his tribute to Sonny Boy Williamson,”Help Me,” a beautiful song!
