The problem with taking photos
photos: ... Is editing photos. I took easily several hundred megs, heck, call it over a GB of photos this weekend. Western Fair a couple of times, wandering around UWO this afternoon, and a show and shine car show at the east end Canadian Tire.

So, when transferring pics from the second Western Fair last night, I got a nice pleasant warning from Windows that my Hard Drive was "Critically Low on Space. Do You Want To Free Up Space Now?" Well pressing "Yes" tidied up a few hundred megs. So the My Docs folder after two years - actually well under two years - is 31GB. Out of 60 or so on my laptop. My Photos alone is 21GB.

So I broke out the Maxtor external hard drive, jacked in the Firewire and backed up the My Docs and sub folders. Something I wasn't really prompted to do until I was talking to the manager at the laundromat about replacing his hard drive for a bigger one in his older laptop. We got around to external drives. And it made me think - physician heal thyself - that I had not backed up all summer.

With this dearth of free bytes in mind, and having a pleasant Sunday morning off, I took laptop in hand - so it seemed less of a chore - went to Starbucks and settled in with a doublebuck coffee (half Decaf). I proceeded to delete over six GB of pics and ultimately freed up over 12GB of space on the machine.

Then, as my prosepctive model for the afternoon was otherwise occupied, I went and walked around UWO and shot some architecture and thought out some shots for when it is busier so I can get some nicely framed images of students going too and from class.

And I asked the first person I didn't personally know if I could take a picture of them. She was studying on a grassy hill near the end of the bridge by Delaware Hall. She said sure and the result, while not spectacular, is above. I posted a BW version on Flickr. ** edit: she was lovely, the shot was kinda rushed so it wasn't the best composed. That's what I meant. :)

Later, I went down to the regular show and shine for older cars at the east end Canadian Tire near Clark and Dundas streets. Got some quality close ups. They will be up later.

Going to kick back because it's back to work tomorrow.

Carpe Diem
