Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens

Yesterday, Laura and I along with a couple of friends from chuch [Phil and Troy] went to the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens in Washington, DC. There are a lot of lilly ponds and other marshes and plants. This was actually a good trip and my first dedicated “photo outing”. I think it turned out quite well. I ended up taking 170 pictures before my 2GB card filled up. Laura was using the Canon Elan 7n [our 35mm film camera] and one of her rolls was slide film, so we haven’t seen those shots yet.

All in all, though, we got a lot of good shots and a lot of “blah” ones which will be deleted – never to be seen again…

I’ll post the pictures as soon as I finish processing and sorting them… [which might be a while as I’m still rebuilding my laptop].

Oh The Joy

Today, I had a flat in the car. The front right tire went down. Luckily, I only got out of the driveway. I put on the full-size spare [gotta love those] and went to work. Now, we have to get a new spare tire.

This is just as I am staying off the motorcycle this week because its rear tire is so close to gone that I feel uncomfortable riding it. I’m getting a new one on Friday.

There goes the emergency savings…
