Just finished cooking a large pot of chili, most of which will hit the freezer in individual containers. I most often cook things in quantity on the weekend and freeze individual portions for during the week, when I have less time to cook after work.
Walked in to the Black River at Sandstone Falls, photographing there, in addition to upstream at lesser falls. Used both the Harman Titan 4x4 Pinhole and Chamonix 45n2 (above). Rather balmy today and tomorrow with everything on the melt. Nice to work with the view camera without gloves or having my breath ice up the ground glass, as is common in the very cold conditions (requiring breath holding while focusing).
Have been reading PrairyErth by William Least Heat-Moon, which I started some years back when it was released, and for reasons I do not remember, set it aside for another choice. This time it is a joy. Least Heat-Moon takes readers on an exploration of time and space, landscape and history in the Flint Hills of central Kansas-our last remaining natural prairie. Fascinating landscape and characters in the land of 8 foot grasses and no trees as far as the landscape stretches. Another place to photograph and hike for the bucket list.
“What you've done becomes the judge of what you're going to do - especially in other people's minds. When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.”
