2017 Christmas List



This years list seems longer than ever. I just kept jotting things down when I thought of them, regardless of how practical or impracticable they are. Therefore I don't have any expectations, just providing information.
There are three sections this year. Stuff to do, stuff to buy & stuff to search out.

 
Stuff to Do
  • Follow me on: Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, blogger, twitter, G+, Red Bubble
  • Tell someone about something I posted/made through Re-posting, forwarding, or sharing in some way.
  • Comment on an item.
Just like last year I'm trying to gain a bit more of an audience, and every little bit helps.


Stuff to Buy
  1. $Store: Crocks, headphones, toque, chapstick,
  2. Bridge mix, Chocolate Cherries, Maple Buds
  3. Cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds, hot olives, old cheese,
    coconut roll dates (bulk Barn #2195)
  4. Track pants  or 'lounge' pants size XXL
  5. Gloves for taking photos in the winter.
  6. Warm Blanket. Nothing special just a warm blanket. I'm adding this one because on some older pictures and realized I've been using the same one for at least 15 years.
  7. Totes. Rubbermaid or similar
  8. Vinyl Cafe CD “The Unreleased Stories” Digital version or CD version is also available. & the NEW Christmas book from amazon with unreleased stories
  9. Ticket to 'Mythos' by Stephen Fry & Starring Stephen Fry at the Shaw festival.

Stuff to Search Out
(Wish List)
  1. Cheap Old camera lenses (1970's, 80's mostly) from thrift stores, garage sales etc. Cheap is the operative word here, if it's described as 'rare' or 'sought after' walk away. 1)BRAND/Mount If they are Nikkor/Nikkon, Canon FD, or Mintola MC are all great as I can use them right away. 2) Focal length is like a zoom, but there is only one number. Common lengths are: 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 100mm 135mm. there are bigger lengths, but I wouldn't bother with them.
  2. Christmas records (real vinyl records) almost any Christmas record is good. Unusual, interesting, & old are all bonus qualities, but the holy grail is still Firestone Christmas album #4. It's a 7 record set & I have them all except #4 . So, if your at a second hand store or a garage sale & see Firestone #4 you have found the perfect gift!
  3. While your looking at vinyl just about anything that's on 78 could be interesting.
  4. Any Anything by Louis Armstrong is good, especially older stuff.
  5. In the same vein, another item I'm always on the lookout for is bubble lights, not the reproductions, but the originals (40'&50's). These are basically impossible to find, but hey you never know.

Merry Christmas!

 Pic-of-The-day - "What's inside?".

I had been told the building is still used, but it looked pretty abandon to me, then more windows started disappearing until they where almost all gone. Finally about a week ago I walked by at night and there where lights on and possibly work being done. I have no idea what is being done, but I walk by on the way to work each morning, so we'll see what happens.

Daily Post - November 16 - Thanksgiving Pies

Pic-of-The-day - "Thanksgiving Pies".
I had some time on Thanksgiving afternoon, so I got a few photos & shot some footage of the pies as they where cooling.   I don't usually have time to get a slider, pan head,  few lenses & other gear to shoot what we're having for desert... so I had take the opportunity when it presented itself.
That's part of what holidays are for,  taking extra time & creating memorable moments.

Having said that I hope that I remember that next month in the mad rush of Christmas.


P.S. I'm trying to make my daily blog posts more than just a PoTd (Pick of The day).  I'll be calling them "Daily Post"(s),  most will still include a photo & some will be a PoTd as in the past.  The plan is to start including other things as well, at least 1-2 times a week.
