I tell you , this is when Okinawa scores bonus points. It is the very end of November but I wake up to a glorious day. The first thing I do is to put on some coffee and then I wade out to recover my anchors, which will never more drag in front of my house. I then breakfast on asparagus, poached eggs, toast and coffee. I love poached eggs.
Tim has lent me his high pressure cleaner, normally called Karchers. I wonder why?
I then attack the space under the deck. I so regret that I did not take a before-shot, because it was sordid, Augean stable-ish.
All well and good, but what I really want to do is to praise my Tokina AT-X 300 lens. It is my greatest source of joy. Well, not really but you know what I mean.
She is an amazing lens. What I like most about her is that she is manually focusing. It is a totally sensual experience to sensitively and calmly, rotate the focus thing until you feel it is just right and only then, blast off. What a difference from the hum, buzz, clatter, strange rectangles indicating that the camera is focusing on something other than what you wish, which comes with autofocus.
