    The most climate-appropriate xmas lunch I ever had was at an ex's mum's place, prawns and lobster and nibbles in a shady garden in the hills.
    Well that, and when I was 10 I had xmas in Finland, we went to the Father Christmas village on the arctic circle and ate Reindeer stew in a Reindeer-skin hut, and it was -35 outside...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    Been beautiful here the last several days. Temp in low 90's or upper 80's, low humidity. Just warm enough to feel like summer.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    It's 12C here at present, having only warmed up a few degrees since morning. Foggy as well here on top of Burnaby Mountain...and we know the photographic opportunities that present themselves (a 9 am walkabout the neighborhood and campus yielded 2 rolls - give or take - of HP5 (1600 ISO !). I had hoped to shoot some E100VS (sans tripod) of the fall colors, but light was insufficient. Perhaps another stroll in a couple of hours...
    An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    The fog has lifted here down at seaside (about a 45 minute drive from BradleyK). Skies are really grey though.

    It was really misty yesterday. I and a bunch of others in my Darkroom Group were out at a farm in Pitt Meadows for an environmental portrait shoot. I'm looking forward to seeing the transparencies and TMY negatives.

    No rain storms, wind storms, ice storms, snow storms, lightening, thunder, hail, tornados, typhoons, hurricanes, floods, iced-over roads, avalanches, downed trees, power outages, landslides, earthquakes, collapsed infrastructure, sunken ships, sunken floating bridges, or sky-darkening plagues of locusts.

    At least today.

    But this IS the Pacific Northwest. And tomorrow is another day...

    After a rare day of rain last week it has warmed into the mid 80's here. It appears that it will be the same for several weeks. No clouds, low humidity. Great for star gazing.

    Here in Florida we are just entering our dry season. The lower humidity makes it quit pleasant. Also temperatures should be keeping below 80F (27C).

    A dry 80+ degree day here dominates the nightly news and is the lead story the next day in the newspapers...

    Haha! When I lived in Scotland you could get them all within an hour..The light was amazing though, especially on the West Coast.
