An old hobby is new again?

Once upon a time, when I was but a mere lad of 20, I used to be an avid fan of photography. That lasted for quite a while, but eventually that hobby got replaced by computers. My love of photography has been rekindled of late, thanks in large part to one of my wife’s nephews for whom photography is a serious hobby. You can see examples of his work on his blog: f/11.

All this to justify the fact that I just bought myself a camera. 🙂 While we already have a very nice DSLR camera (Sony A300), I wanted something that would be easier to carry around – a camera I could have with me pretty much all the time. So when I saw a couple of days ago that the Sony DSC-H10/B super zoom compact digital was on clearance I decided to go ahead and get it. It meets my criteria of portability, we have been super happy with the quality of pictures our current Sony camera takes, and it was inexpensive enough that if this hobby rekindling is only a flash in the pan I have not spent an arm and a leg for something I will never use. And, if I do get serious again about photography, it leaves open the possibility of getting a better camera in the near future. 🙂 Okay, kidding…

In other news, it was great to go bowling again. Although it had been long enough since I had last bowled that I could not remember if I used a 3 step approach, a 4 step approach, where I stood on the lane to start my approach… At least I remembered that I was left-handed. 🙂 We also played pool and there again the length of time since I had last held a pool cue (probably around 30 years) diminished any skill I might have had then.

And I guess no news is good news on the work outsourcing front. We are still on target for a move to EAS on March 30th since we have yet to hear anything about the contract having been signed or rejected. As I am sure I mentioned before, all we can do is wait.
