There was a typhoon earlier today, but luckily it wasn’t too bad. Now the wind is gone and all I hear are crickets. Even though this storm came and went, in my mind I feel as if I’m still standing—frozen—in the calm before another one. Except with this storm, the trajectory and severity are unknown. Instead of getting frustrated about those unknown factors, I’ve chosen to spend what time I have left hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. There’s a silver lining here somewhere.
Here’s my favorite shot from yesterday. I wanted to see how it felt using the vertical battery grip and I must say, it’s very comfortable. The only downside with the battery grip is that it adds a considerable amount of weight to the camera. I lugged it around in my purse, but after a while I had to leave it in the car because my shoulder hurt so bad. Next time I’ll bring my camera leash to see if that’s better.
