I’ve bought something at an auction.
I would like to write that the winds blow hard here but since I know how hard they blow on the north-eastern coast of the US it sort of sounds silly 🙂 Our winds are more like a nice breeze compared to Sandy 🙂 So the nice breeze tossed around my car like it wanted to and some times it felt like my little Mazda would start to fly 🙂 Many of us are following the storm via the internet and I do hope that people listens and evacuate as they are told to.
I love the sound of a good storm, the roar from the wind passing through trees. What I don’t like is when I hear something hit the wall of my cottage, mostly it’s branches from trees or things I’ve forgotten to put away before the storm hits. No such sound so far but I’ve heard the most strange sound from the bog, a sort of whining but not from any animal I know of. Well I haven’t heard all whining sounds our animals can make so it might be from a hog or perhaps a lynx.
I won an auction today 🙂 It was on the web site I bought my little camera, The Pawn shop. I’ve just paid it and it will arrive here within a week or so. It is of course another camera but I really don’t care about the camera to be honest, but with it came two lenses and one of them is a really nice tele lens. At first I didn’t think much of it because they had named the lens in the wrong way 🙂 The name they had given it was the name of the sun visor that was attached to the lens 🙂
They had also placed the lens in the photograph so that it was difficult to see what it was but I looked carefully and could see a bigger part of the name and it shows it is a very expensive lens 🙂 I looked it up on the net and an American site said it was a lens that professionals usually used 🙂 🙂 The price on the lens was higher than my camera and something I never could afford to buy 🙂 🙂 🙂 The camera is a Nikon D70 and to be honest, mobile phones has better cameras now days 🙂 But it could be a good camera for a kid that wants to try photography.
It’s time to make something to eat and I think tonight is a cocoa night. There’s nothing on tv today so perhaps I’ll read a book and listen to the wind instead. All of You that lives where Sandy will tour please stay safe!!!
Have a great day!
