NIKON D70 - 1/800 sec, f4.5 at 48mm

I've raised my daughters to the best of my ability but tonight I've been brought down to the ground with a thud. Sarah just told me she doesn't like bacon. I don't know what to do. I'm distraught. Gabba, are you really sure I'm the father? I'm seriously beginning to have doubts. The fact they are blonde and I'm not was the first sign. but this whole bacon thing has me very concerned.

The photo above was the view from Waiake tonight as I drove home at 5:30. Hasn't it been a puny winter so far? I was only saying to some of the geeks in the office last week that this has been a feeble excuse for winter. I was thinking that Wisconsin had us thoroughly winterized. But no, we are probably still soft kiwi's that complain about anything below 50 degrees F.

This in my 99th blog post this year. Not a bad effort given I only really started doing it regularly like late March. I'm still having fun doing it. I think my photography is mostly getting better. Although I'm yet to get Gabba to leave a single comment. Living in hope!

  • you're not failing. it's just that you have girls, and lots of them are not as into meat as the male population. i am a case in point. steak is horrid, and i didn't like bacon until i ate it the darren way. i don't eat pork, beef or anything but the tender lamb tapas i ate last night which were the nicest way i've ever had meat. meat just isn't all it cracked up to be!

  • But Manda, bacon is not meat! It's something else entirely. It's too good to be just labelled "meat"

  • if you think NZ bacon is good you should try Australian bacon. It is superb, one of the main reasons we moved to Aust
