“Twas the mid-day of Christmas and all through The Lou,Not a salesman was pitching, as far as I knew.The wine racks were filled with the utmost of careWith hope that Aunt Flo doesn’t spill everywhere.The children were plugged into PlayStation 2With sounds of big mortars and gunfire, too.While mom in her tennies and my Cardinals capHad just finished picking up holiday wrap.
Etc. etc. It was awfully quiet around town yesterday. In fact, haven't heard it so quiet since last Christmas when we had thick fog. Here, the parking lot in front of Nordstrom in the St. Louis Galleria is dead empty.
Beginning to take some shots with Santa's best gift of all, a Fujifilm X-T2 camera. It's wonderful, half the size and weight of my Canon DSLR but it's going to take some time to get used to. I can't get in the habit of adjusting the f stop with a ring at the base of the lens. My brilliant teacher, Bobbi Lane shoots with one and, although she gets paid for it, I trust her.
