Sept. 19 late afternoon looking almost into the sun using one hand as a lens hood I made this image. Problem with many Zoom lenses you can’t put a hood on them because the varying focal length either will vignette on the wide end of the lens or not cover enough to prevent flare. This tool may be made I just haven’t seen one. An asst. holding a steno pad works best. I don’t like to shoot with one hand at less than 1/250. I know some cameras have auto stabilizer but I still prefer prime lens and film. enjoy pjc
Dinner with Wulf arriving early I of course started to make images. Wulf brought Eva and the three of us had a grand time. The food was very good. Ah but the light moved off the empty table and into the doorway and our eyes finally finding its way behind a building ending natures evening bright bursts. enjoy pjc
THE WIDE SWINGING DOORS
—at the Harp on Church in Willimantic
Afternoon blasts in with the random patrons
coming through the wide swinging doors
down the two rows of booths
shutter blinks aimed at the bar
diners and drinkers lit up
and Eva, Peter and I at our table
are beside the framed sky
when the doors open up
to deliver us the billowed clouds
and the lengthening sun
that clings to the street as we leave.

The evening clouds of Washington 8:30 pm. June twenty first. Sometimes the clouds bring rain.
But we Washingtonians are ready.
Sometimes they are just pretty but we are ready for that too! Bingo bingo bingo and Bingo was his name. We sang this loud in the market one afternoon, what fun. enjoy pjc
