Saturday was the opening day of the local farmer's market on the square. It was overcast and sprinkling rain, conditions not conducive to success for outdoor vendors. Still, there were alot of people walking around the square. A few had their pets, and this gentleman had his pets outfitted in their rain gear.
Yummy to My Tummy
Last week my wife and I hosted an in-home prom dinner for 17 high school students. You can scoll down a couple of posts to get the full story. I grilled strip steaks. I had one steak left over. What do you do with a left over steak? You slice it thinly, put a little BBQ sauce on it and turn it into a sandwich. And yes, it is yummy to your tummy.
There is no doubt that my favorite toy is my Nikon D7000 with a Tamron 18-270 lens. You can photograph nearly anything with this set up. It is perfect for "street photography" like the "Walking" capture above. I have several other lenses for other types of photo work, but this is my "go to" walking around set up. It's my favorite toy because I can take it nearly anywhere I go, and it allows me to capture life and make memories for myself, my family, and many of my friends. Yes, the boat in my blog header is my second favorite toy, but I captured that image with my FAVORITE toy.
What I Did This Week
I did several things this week, but the one thing that I was able to photograph and show you is a Zentangle that I created. Basically a Zentangle is controlled doodling. It is a creative, relaxing way to spend some time.
One of the vendors at the local farmer's market makes these baskets by hand from white oak. They are really nicely done. That tool in the foreground is what he uses to turn a log into strips suitable for weaving the baskets. I love this kind of craftsmanship. Well that's all I've got for this week's Scavenger Hunt. Have a blessed week-end.
