Goodnight, John Boy
We've had another week of chilly, dismal weather -- that is, up until today. The sun is shining and I probably should get outside and take advantage of it. I did manage a damp run yesterday as well as a walk up to Trellick Tower for yet another round of graffiti photography, followed by some picture-taking along Portobello Road.
I'm seriously considering buying a new camera. The cost kind of freaks me out, but my camera is puny compared to what's available these days, and if I'm going to take serious pictures I suppose I need the equipment. And given the amount of time I spend tromping around with my eye pressed to a viewfinder, it seems justified. I'm working up to it.
I've been watching reruns of "The Waltons" recently -- they're somewhat surprisingly available on British TV. Like my "Little House on the Prairie" binge a couple of years ago, this is a reconnection with a show I loved as a child. I think "The Waltons" is less sappy than "Prairie," but maybe only slightly.
