As the world works its way through a pandemic, elections, economic distress, hunger and wars, along with forces of nature, I find myself extremely grateful for many things. Family, friends, food on the table, a roof over our heads, good health, the ability to continue to work. Right now, many around the world and in the United States are food insecure, unemployed, and in life limbo. The health care workers, logistics and delivery people, those who continue to work in offices, retail and grocery stores, restaurants, first responders, members of police forces and military, teachers, classroom and university staff members, and smart, empathetic leaders deserve more credit than I can ever give. My thanks go out to all of you.
My camera and I did a bit more practice with the live view mode this week. There is still a learning curve, but I am understanding things and becoming more comfortable with it. Using Fred's Navajo-Churro wool rugs and other objects, i. e., things that do not move, helped my efforts.
