A New Skill

As per suggestion and encouragement, I need to have my camera with me more often. My regular camera is a Nikon D 70. It's a little big to carry around in some places, and illegal for me to carry onto some military bases, Lawrence Livermore Lab, and Sandia Lab (a couple of Dept. of Energy work sites) that I deliver to. When I go to these places, the guards do a thorough search of my truck and would confiscate my camera or not allow me to enter their facility.

Periodically I'll sent a work situation picture from my phone. So I decided to take a couple pictures of my usual "Tuesday" night gig. I enjoy the game of racquetball and I've recently had the opportunity to play with a friend (captain Dave). He lives and works about 25 minutes from me and we alternate locations to play. One week we play in my town and the next week in his town. Both of us are pretty competitive and we play extremely hard for 5 games. Last week I won 3 of 5, this week "Captain" Dave won 3 of 5. Here is a picture that I took and a couple that Dave took of me...

Another blog skill learned and practiced. Plus this post only took about 10 minutes to create...

The picture on the right looks likes a still photo from a hostage video. Hope you're having fun with the blog. Cheers!!

Well done! Even practice with a cell phone cam is good practice for when you will have the regular camera on your trip.
