What can I say, Wednesday afternoon was a good time for watching the clouds outside of my office window. Being on the third floor above the landscape helps.
However, a couple of miles from the office, I found the scene below. Always have a camera handy. You never know when a photo opportunity will come your way. I think that the old truck adds a nice touch.
Okay, enough puffy clouds. On another note. The next time that I mention that I am looking at something on E-bay, somebody slap me and take my laptop away...please. Last November I was looking at a 50-500mm lens for my Nikon D80 DSLR camera. After several failed attempts and winning bids more than twice what I was willing to pay, I quit looking for a couple of weeks. One day I found the lens I was looking for and placed my maximum bid nineteen hours before the end of the auction. The next morning, after I got to work, I decided to find out who won...it was me!!! You just aren't supposed to win an E-bay auction with a bid that is nineteen hours old and at the price you were truly willing to pay. Well, a couple of weeks ago, I decided I'd like to have a back up digital camera. I wanted something more compact than a DSLR but more sophisticated than the run of the mill point & shoot. I like to keep a camera in the car at all times (see comment earlier in this post), and there are times when I just don't want to carry the big camera around. I really liked the Canon S5 IS. It is no longer in production because it has been replaced by the S10 IS. The S5 IS is an 8 mega-pixel camera with a built in flash and a hot shoe for a dedicated flash unit. It also has a 15x optical zoom lens. Remember, this is a want, not a need. I DO NOT need this camera. Anyway, I bid on several units the past two weeks, always losing by a sizable margin. So, I quit trying to buy one for awhile. Wednesday, I found one that looked like it might sell in my price range so I bid on it with eight hours to go in the auction. This evening when I got home from work, I checked E-bay to see who won... I did!!!! This has got to stop.
So how do we end this week? Time for the inspirational song. We sang this song in church last week and it is one of my favorite praise songs ever. Here is my favorite choir doing my favorite praise song. Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir singing "Days of Elijah". Enjoy.
