Just Another Day?
This morning after weighing in at a stable 186 lbs. (at least I didn’t gain), John and I headed out to Morro Bay’s spic and span McDonald’s for breakfast. I ordered my one fatty breakfast for the week – a delicious sausage biscuit.
While at McDonald’s I helped a visitor from Poland get signed onto Skype with his electronic notebook. John and I sipped our espresso drinks and munched away as Frank spoke to his wife back in Poland in their Polish language.
Today was laundry day, so I set off straight from McDonald’s via Los Osos Highway to my favorite San Luis Obispo Laundromat. On the way over, I shot a few pictures using my new 70-300mm, 4-5.6 lens.
This farm is producing fields of brightly colored flowers.
Workers harvested and packaged broccoli for transport to grocery stores locally and far away. I am always amazed by the sight of people doing this work.
In SLO, I packed the washer, grabbed my camera and set out walking to the nearest residential
neighborhood. I passed a small florist's booth on the way (above scene).
At the first house in the neighborhood, I caught this honey bee at work.
People had planted beautiful flowers in their front yards.
I love the idea of growing food in one's yard. Citrus does well in Central Coast California.
And more beautiful flowers...
All in all, I had a delightful morning and early afternoon today. Photography is sure a great way to make use of that time between washing and drying clothes when you have to use a public Laundromat. And a new camera lens can really freshen up the taking of pictures.
