Thought I would post a link to the New York Times article about the LAST Kodachrome processor being shut down here in Kansas....

Being that time of year with the Christmas decorations strewn about the house, I had a question. How can you take fun low light holiday pictures without a tripod. I know that setting up a tripod is not THAT big of a deal, but what if you just didn't want to drag the thing out?

We went out last night for my daughter's first visit to Santa. Had a great time with friends, and she was very well behaved. I thought the lights of the Crown Center Square were interesting against the mist covered walkways.

Went to a little area south of town owned by a friend of mine in search of venison for the freezer. Well the deer did not want to show themselves; however, I was able to sneak some photos of the visiting birds.
This guy reminded me of Woody Woodpecker. It was amazing... the flits of black on white with the stark red head zipping through the timber.
"The Red-headed Woodpecker has a large range, inhabiting much of the eastern half of the United States. Native to the United States and Canada, this bird prefers temperate, subtropical, or tropical forest and grassland ecosystems as well as savannas and even rural and urban areas. The global population of this bird is not specifically quantified but shows significant and rapid signs of decline that necessitate inclusion on the IUCN Red List. For this reason, the current evaluation status of the Red-headed Woodpecker is Near Threatened." - whatbird.com

I was out driving around today... thinking of the problems that I have. You know, the everyday problems that we all have. Thinking about bills, and the raising of my little girl, and all that stuff. Now, did I mention that I was driving around the area of 7th and Troost looking for cool things to photograph. As I am driving along, I see people on the side of the road on just about every corner apparently happy to have shoes on their feet. I saw one guy smiling with three teeth as he sipped on something hot. I could see his ragged smile through the steam wafting up from the cup. Times like that make me reflect on the fact that I am typing this on my computer, in my home, in the heat provided by my furnace... Be thankful for what we have, for we may not have it tomorrow. God Bless and Merry Christmas to everyone!
