NIKON D70 - 1/5000 sec, f2.5 at 50mm

Finally, I make a start on getting some photo's published.

I mowed the lawns today. It's the first time I've mowed lawns in a little over 6 months. Part way through I started to think that I'd saved $45 for doing it myself, and was pleased with myself. But then I realized it was only $45. I dunno how the hell the guys at Jims Mowing make a living at mowing lawns. I actually like mowing lawns. It gives me a chance to incubate ideas. roll them around in my head while I do somethign otherwise meaningless. It would be meaningful of course if I had nice lawns. But the grass here is seriously poo. I feel less of a man because they are so bad.

I see it's snowing again in Madison right now. I actually wish I was there. It was nice watching the snow fall. Even nicer to listen to it. If you were real quiet, you could hear it swiching through the air.

I couldn't be bothered moving the boots to a better spot to get the photo. I was too hot!

  • I think $45 for mowing lawn is a lot of money, mate! I'll mow your lawn for that!

  • I'd mow his lawn for $45US but not $45 kiwi. Perhaps $45 kiwi and a couple of Heinies, but no less.
