I’ve been out of town most of this week, traveling on business, with no computer. I decided to take the pressure off myself and skip this week’s Recommended Reading.

I’ve been in sunny San Diego, where it’s surprisingly 10 degrees cooler than central Indiana. I needed a light jacket for the evenings! My company had its first ever conference for people in the industry we serve. We make a software platform that helps medical device companies cut through FDA red tape to bring products to market. I am Director of Software Engineering there, and we engineers don’t get out much. But I thought it would be valuable for me to get to know people in the medical device industry and come to understand the work they do and the pressures that go with it. It’ll help me make better decisions as I lead our engineers.

I’m writing this in advance of the trip, so I don’t know yet if I’ve met that objective! I also plan to bring one of my compact SLRs along with some Kodak Ektar loaded. As I sit here it’s down to my Pentax ME SE with its delightful 50mm f/1.7 SMC Pentax-M lens, or my Olympus OM-2n with its compact 40mm f/2 Zuiko Auto-S lens.

This is the first business trip I’ve made since long before the pandemic, as I don’t usually enjoy business trips. I’m such a homebody. Also, I’ve not enjoyed flying since Sept. 11, 2001, when the TSA instituted security theater at airports and airlines started packing people into planes shoulder to shoulder.

Margaret and I have been going to the Zionsville Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning since it opened this season. We always bring our cameras along. On a recent Saturday I chose my Nikon Df with my cheap and cheerful 28-80mm zoom lens. There wasn’t much produce available yet, as it’s still early in the growing season. But these apples were for sale.

Hands in the Play-Doh

Did you know that when you mix all of the Play-Doh colors together, you get gray? Our granddaughter sure found out. I made these photos with my Nikon F3 and my 55mm f/2.8 Micro-Nikkor lens on expired Kroger 200 film, which is a Ferrania stock. I shot the film at EI 100 to get past the color shifts I got the last time I shot it.

The lighthouse at Michigan City

The trip Margaret and I made to South Bend included a short jaunt over to Michigan City. Despite it being a chilly, windy day, we hit the beach at Lake Michigan and walked out to the lighthouse.
