Blow ya Horn and an Update

This was the very end of November, I think. Taken in Winchester, MA. Underneath the bridge in the middle of a rotary there was stored a bunch of Christmas outside decorations, I'm assuming belonged to the town. Why they were there, who knows, but they were definitely in a storage mode, the way they were set up. I conveniently lost my cable release which I had had about an hour before. I searched and searched, and never found it. I've gone through about three in the past semester. If you're ever at a loss of what to get me, for whatever reason you're getting me something, and want to be cheap, go with a cable release. I could probably use a good stock of them. If I keep them everywhere, I might be alright.
With that said, having lost my cable release, a decent amount of the photos were not so sharp. I also have a sucky tripod, and I'm not kidding when I tell you it's a ten dollar tripod. I'm in the market for one of those, so if you REALLY like me, that's what you'd get me. But really, don't worry. within a month I'll be taking a trip to calumet photo with 150-200 dollars to buy a decent one that I can trust.
Getting back to the image, this is one that I really wish I had spent more time in the environment. I was frustrated with the cable release, and didn't think I'd have any come out sharp. Sorry excuses.
So, I guess I vow to now always have ten cable releases, five on my person/in my bags, the other five in my car. Also, I vow to spend more time with my subjects, even if they are made of plastic or whatever they make those things out of. I guess I could do him the decency of looking that up. It was actually pretty cool be down there. Winchester, or at least the area I went in Winchester, is definitely a return visit type of place. I bet it looks great in the snow.
Well, we started school again, I graduate in a year and that's a terrifying thought. So far, my only goal for after graduating, is to not die. Well, in all honesty I have more goals than that, but they're not something I enjoy talking about. They're great goals, but I'm not ready to tell anyone I plan on doing something, even with the warning there's a great chance I might not, because it feels like a wasted plan and a let down to the people I tell. And when and if I've moved on from that idea, I don't want to be reminded of what I didn't do that someone thought I would do.
I should probably go back to reading, If I'm going to be ahead of the game, I better start early.
