Pictures around Niles

This seems  to  be  my  latest thing.  I  go  to events ,  and  end  up  staying  longer  than  planned.  So  to  keep  myself  amused , I  take  photos. Today  there  was an art  show at  the  Niles  Gallery. the  niles  Gallery  is a  framing shop,  but  they have  shows as well.  Today’s  opening was for a show of  works  with the  theme  of  Niles . It  was good,  with a number  of  artists I  had not  seen  before.   But  is  was a  small  show.   I  planned on stay  for  half an  hour,  maybe  an  hour.   I  didn’t know  that  DH  was  playing,  so I  took  pictures. Not so much of the show , but around niles.

The city is fixing the sidewalks, curbs and possible some of the drainage issues on my street. I live on a cul-de-sac, so during the day I’ve been parking on the cross street and waiting. Today is the day – I no longer can get in and out of my driveway. It looks like some of the driveways that were worked on earlier this week are now open , so there might be enough parking – except there are a lot of holes in the street

I know – others have shared the rug at our library. However, I had to show that furniture is   co-ordinated with the rug. Anyone remember Batman? I think we were hit by one of his famous villains

I guess this is confession time. I consider myself both technical and mechanical,but you would never guess it by my approach to learning new stuff. At best, I get cranky about it. I look at it – get intimidated, close it down. Then I think about it, worry about it, and complain about it. Then I sit down and do it.

Flickr was especially hard because I have used kodakGallery for years. But then, all I was interested in was sharing photos. Flickr has a whole bunch of other things it can do like map where I took the photos, or add notes to the photos. Of course, I’m trying to learn as much as I can as quickly as I can – which isn’t really what most people would do . What surprised me was the sudden arrival of emails from  people that have put me on their contact list. I didn’t even know that was a part of flickr, until it happened. A pleasant surprise, but a surprise none the less.

I’ve spent a lot more time than the 30 minutes I am given to do this at work. But curiosity wouldn’t let me just skim this – I need to know. I’m actually heading back to flickr, but maybe after a nap
