Day 146 – More Smoky Mountains

May 26, 2009

As promised, I posted more photos from GSM National Park above. They are best viewed large, so click on them!

Today I worked for a while, then come home and cooked dinner for my parents (no big feat, because it was Zatarain’s Dirty Rice Mix, which you really only have to cook ground beef for, then let everything cook together, and how hard is that?). Then, I went to Crocker Park with Sean and Lydia, where we went to Borders, Barnes & Noble, the Apple Store, and then Aladdin’s for dessert. I bought two books: a Linear Algebra book to prepare myself for the course I am taking in the fall, and The Essential Lighting Manual for Photographers, which I am really looking forward to reading. It is well designed, and it has great examples and diagrams for all sorts of lighting scenarios. Hopefully soon I will post some test photos I take while going through the book.

If you are looking for something to read, Dr. Bob Murphy had a good post about Memorial Day over at his blog, Free Advice. In his post, he explains many of the same feelings I had when I attended the festivities in my town. I suggest reading it.

Oh, by the way, I miss Hillsdale. A lot.
