I showed up early to catch my bus. Waaaaaay early. Like, 6 hours early. I only meant to show up 3.5 hours early, but it turns out my bus left at 8:45am rather than 5:45am as I expected. And so I watched some TV shows I downloaded from iTunes, read my assignments which I had printed out, uploaded the images I had taken the night before and cleared my camera’s memory card, and was generally bored.
On the camera: I am borrowing a beautiful camera from The Tartan. I offered a trade: I would provide them pictures of the inauguration in return for borrowing a nice camera with which to take them. I discussed the intellectual property rights with the chief editor, and we agreed I would publish my pictures daily on a flickr site. Because not all of the staff have flickr accounts, I had to make my profile public. So, to follow my images for the inauguration, please check out my flickr stream:
I am writing this post on my computer in the Greyhound station. I am never terribly comfortable taking out my computer in Greyhound stations–it seems like such a conspicuous, obnoxious symptom of wealth that I feel it is rude to flaunt it. But I am also very bored, and so try to keep myself (and Amelia) out of sight so as not to prove an irritant.
Anyhoo, more later!
