Xmas is almost here

we have a bit of snow on the ground but it still should remain thru the holidays.. Xmas this year will be small as we have had to deal with alot of issues around the stead that I will be able to fill y'all in on after the 1st of Jan.
Anyhow life goes on and planning for spring is on the way. Whether we are still at this stead or if we move on to another. Only time and the good lord will tell.

ode to combat boots

For practicality surplus combat boots are a great all around show.. sturdy, stable and also keeps the feet warm in winter weather. Why did I ever leave them when they are such good friends.
Anyhow Babylon has been hectic this week. One party on Tuesday and another today. free food and goodies. Prepping heaven.

sit and rest a bit

In my walk thru the snow yesterday I had an epiphany. Many decades ago when I was doing film photography I became enamored with black and white and contrast manipulation. I think that I am going to go back to that only with digital as the medium of choice. Between the option on the phone cam to shoot in b/w and the darkroom techniques in iphoto I may be able to play with this without the smell of chems..
we shall see
