DSI (www.DigitalSilverImaging.com) continues to do amazing work. Today I turned over six very large prints to an art buyer. Client loved the prints and I expect to get more work from them. I was going to do another sale as I only had one order during the last week, but out of the blue three good sized orders came in. So I’ll let it go.
Right now I have orders for about 9 large files (I put up very large sizes for some of the prints the other day) to prepare for DSI.
Other notes: switching to Wideband with Time Warner Cable and using CrashPlan for backup is working out fine.
My operation is humming along nicely now. I actually spent $60 for the Mets ticket (and that was with a half off discount for being 60 years old) – first senior discount I ever got. I like it :) In other words I had a $120 seat.
I didn’t buy any food while I was there… just two waters… I could have but frankly I feel like I’m being totally ripped off to pay $6.75 for a soggy hotdog. I don’t think I’m exactly frugal – but I’d rather buy a decent cigar with that money.
Even though we were at field level – every time we saw a three empty seats that were closer to the field we scooted down there. Eventually I think we were three rows from the field. The Mets were playing the Reds. We were in a Reds section. Apparently I grazed a Reds fan with the lens shade of the telephoto lens. At least that’s what they said. But I had this feeling that they were annoyed that we had taken seats right behind them – like we didn’t belong there.
I think I would have noticed if I hit someone’s head with the lens – but okay – they were very nasty about it. I mumbled something not very nice about them under my breath – and I think they heard me because one of them got up and stared at me like he was going to do something. But fortunately he was a squirt. And anyway – I had apologized. But those were the only bad vibes during the game.
I really enjoyed just sitting in the sun, and being somewhere that the horizon was almost visible. Except for going to the park, we spend so much of our lives with our vision hemmed in by buildings.
