Don't Rain on Me

Ok, so here’s the deal. I want to go out. I need to go out. I really have to get out some and take some pictures. I’m getting cabin fever. It’s not that I want to start a whole new body of work, it’s not that I want to change course, pick-up a new direction, or any of that. No, I just want an excuse to walk around a bit on a nice, sunny day.

Yesterday, Kathy emails me about a new photo group in town. It’s sort of like a giant camera club that meets every once in a while. (The Austin, Texas area, for some unknown reason, has a disproportionate number of camera clubs. Don’t ask me to explain it, and it’s maybe not even a point worth noting, but, there you go.) This new camera club (mob really-well, maybe mob without the flaming torches and all, but mob none the less) has plans. I’m sure they actually have big plans to rule the world, take over the entire known universe or, at least, you know, buy Kodak-but those are not their immediate plans. No, their immediate plans are actually to go to Georgetown this weekend. I like that. I like Georgetown. And I want to go, really I do, so I’m IM-ed Scriber’s Web and told her that I’m going to Georgetown this weekend, to take some pictures.

“It’s supposed to rain on Sunday,” she tells me.

So, now I’m pissed because the one day I can get away, the one day I really, really want to go out and shoot, it’s supposed to rain.

Damn. The universe has conspired against me once again. I hate rain. I really don’t want to shoot in the rain (again.) At this point in time, I think that all you rain loving people can go wank off-I want it to be sunny on Sunday but, knowing my luck, it won’t be. Or, you know, maybe it will be but right at 2:59 when we are supposed to meet up there at 3 pm, that sort of a thing.

Great, so now I feel like that kid from Snoopy who’s always got a cloud over his head. Oh, and, in case you could not guess, it goes without saying really but, at this point in time, I’m also hopelessly out of compact flash too.

Until next time…

    Carol, I ordered a perfect day for you. My requests always get granted so I can assure you that it is NOT going to rain on Sunday.

    For Sunday, I ordered a partly sunny, 50-60 degrees day just for you. Perfect for photography.

    PS: You should know better than to listen to me. I was trying to pick a day for us to go out for shooting this weekend and thought that it was going to rain on Sunday. It is actually going to rain on Tuesday. So they say.

    So sorry to rain on your parade! Forgive me?

    The National Weather Service is calling for party sunny with a high near 66. Meh on you. I’m going to take some pictures.
