Denver Zoo

 Since we are not going on a safari this year (or Israel for that matter) we decided to take our big lenses out for a safari at the Denver Zoo.

We opted to go during the week so we took Friday off and booked our tickets online.  We figured the earlier we got in the better.  Animals are usually active first thing in the morning.

The zoo definitely had the social distancing thing down.  Timed entry, one way traffic and plenty of hand  sanitizing stations throughout the park. I commend their efforts.  It could have gone another way and then I would have to have condemned their efforts. Glad it was in our favor.

We packed a lunch to eat in the nearby park after our trip to the zoo to help ensure compliance with the social distancing laws.  Saved a few bucks too.










Great day at the zoo.  

p.s. We forgot our cooler in the back of the truck.  Just got it out today.  NASTY.  I should just through all of the Tupperware away but we have enough plastic floating in the ocean as it is.

TheCrystal Mill Road Trip - Marble Colorado

Once again, we needed to get out of work for a few days.  Not because we hate working but we hate working in the house all day. The vacation days are piling up so we had to burn a few more days. Off to Gunnison, Montrose and The Black Canyon in Colorado. Due to the COVID crap, we needed to find a hotel in that had a kitchen.  No luck finding one unless we wanted to stay in Grand Junction, CO.  A bit too far from our planned activities. Hmm, what about Air BnB?   We never used AirBnB before so we created an account and dove in.  Within a minute or two we found the perfect place.  A cabin in a rural area of Montrose. $95 a night and built just for two. We picked up all of the food that we would need to make breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday and loaded up the Yeti 35 and RTIC65 coolers.  This was a great idea as we only had to buy a couple of things.  The only other expense was gas.  Way to fucking cool. Since we were going to be here for three nights, we thought that we would try some

Get a Grip on Photo Equip!

We really, really, really need to get a grip on our photography hobby.  Buy a camera, sell a camera to downsize then end up buying another one for travel or indoor or to "lighten the load".  The excuses go on and on.  We are both bad at this mind you.  Probably the best part is that we pay cash for the most part.  The items we sell are sold on eBay and I am getting pretty good at getting a fair price.  My seller rating is staying at 100% satisfaction.  That being said,  I will probably never buy anything on eBay.  I don't trust a lot of people.  Especially strangers. Meet the new members of our photo equipment family: Lumix DMC-LX100 My first and hopefully not one of many Lumix Cameras.  I bought this for low light photography during our trips to museums as well as our international travel for light (photo) flow days when I don't feel like lugging my Nikon Z-6 around. Speaking of Nikon Z-6: My first (and once again, hopefully not one of many) fu

Lego Day

I never had a Lego set as a kid.  Closest thing I got to Legos as a kid was stepping on the little fucking pieces at a neighbors house.  Maybe the past experience tainted my need to ever touch them. So why did I buy some?  Macro Photography.   We headed out to Target to pick up some household items and visited the toy aisle.  Target had two dedicated aisles to Legos but not a lot to choose from.  Of course, I picked up a Star Wars set.  Luke Skywalker's X-Wing.  The set included mini Luke, R2-D2 and a Stormtrooper. My Lego photoshoot was going well but then Barbie and her cronies crashed my party and took over the shoot. The two suns began to set on Tantooine so we got in our ship and headed to Dagoba.
