My camera wasn't on its best-quality setting when I took photos on the weekend. I'm happy with some of the compositions but the image quality is crappy. Thus, I'm not going to post any of them. I'd like to get out there this weekend but I doubt I'll have the time.

We'll see...

(Which, as any child knows, is just an adult's way of deferring an inevitable "no")

Can't you feel that sun a-shinin'?

The sun did shine today and I did haul myself by way of my bicycle into town to take photos. I had a great time, too. Well, I was having a great time until my batteries went flat. Serves me right for using my spare set in my Discman. I don't have my battery charger with me at the moment, so I'll have to wait until I can get hold of it tomorrow. Expect some photos tomorrow night.

I watched Kill Bill Vol. 1 earlier today for about the fourth time. That song that Daryl Hannah whistles when she is walking down the corridors of the hospital always gets stuck inside my brain. Then I spend the rest of the day whistling it. Today, I was whistling it down an acoustically inviting alley. Some guy walked passed and I stopped, mid-tune. He pointed at me and then finished the melody. "I've seen that film, too!" he said and continued on his way. I laughed and continued to take photos.

A small black poodle in another alley wasn't so friendly. The dog looked nice enough, just standing there staring at me from around twenty metres away. He barked a few times, calling a smaller dog friend out from hiding. Then they started to chase me. I turned around a ran for the opening of the alley, knowing that I wasn't in any danger but having a good time pretending that I was. I got away safe and unbitten, just as I knew I would.

I returned to the Kill Bill alley a little later and took my harmonica out. I'd like to think that the pigeons enjoyed me huffing and puffing on few blues riffs and a couple of lines from Neil Young's Heart of Gold.

It's good to be out there again. I'm just hoping that the sun feels the same way.

Definitely the weather...

Depending on whether or not the sun decides to show itself this weekend, I'll be venturing into the city to take some photos. I've had a big enough break to make me want to get back out there again. Fresh eyes and all that stuff.

So, expect to see some new photos here on either Saturday or Sunday night.
