When I do count the clock that tells the time,
And see the brave day sunk in hideous night;
When I behold the violet past prime,
And sable curls all silver’d o’er with white;
When lofty trees I see barren of leaves
Which erst from heat did canopy the herd,
And summer’s green all girded up in sheaves
Borne on the bier with white and bristly beard,
Then of thy beauty do I question make,
That thou among the wastes of time must go,
Since sweets and beauties do themselves forsake
And die as fast as they see others grow;
And nothing ‘gainst Time’s scythe can make defence
Save breed, to brave him when he takes thee hence.
“Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a specification to establish communication between devices and a host controller (usually personal computers), developed and invented by Ajay Bhatt while working for Intel. USB is intended to replace many varieties of serial and parallel ports. USB can connect computer peripherals such as mice, keyboards, digital cameras, printers, personal media players, flash drives, Network Adapters, and external hard drives. For many of those devices, USB has become the standard connection method. USB was designed for personal computers, but it has become commonplace on other devices such as smartphones, PDAs and video game consoles, and as a power cord. As of 2008, there are about 2 billion USB devices sold per year, and approximately 6 billion total sold to date.”
I haven’t been taking photos lately. I was in Vegas for a bit, then was sick when I got back – really sick. Two weeks have gone by and I’m still not over whatever it was… Vegas fever? Something from being stuck on a plane full of people for seven hours?… I won’t even get into the nightmare trip back from Vegas. Closed airport in Minneapolis, sat on the runway in Omaha for almost two hours waiting for the weather to pass, then stuck in Minneapolis for a few hours.
Anyway, I did manage to shoot my first wedding a couple days after returning from Vegas… It was a small, short wedding – I think I took 700+ photos… a couple hundred were album worthy. It was my first time using a flash (I’m a landscape / nature photographer – I don’t have much use for a flash), and I had 15 minutes to figure the thing out before the wedding.
I’m digging into the archives until I get out and take some new photos. This photo was taken last summer on the Capital Square in Madison.
