Marrakesh! Remember, my esteemed panel of judges is looking for a city! Way to go... Mike, Carol, Tony, Joani, Peyton, Michelle, Milt, Jim, and Gulchin!
Shoot Two at the King Richard's Faire and all is going well. Lots of photo ops around me - very colorful to say the least. This young lady could not escape my intent to shoot her. As you can see, there was no place for her to go! I had seen two men carry her to this spot earlier so she was there for the duration!
The camera was performing up to and beyond my expectations. Off to shoot the jousting event! For the next thirty minutes I moved around the ring for a better angle. And, then it happened! My camera stopped shooting!!!
I quickly found my fellow-Fujifilm friend to help determine the issue. Not the battery as I had ample back-up. No, it was the memory cards! In my haste to use slot II as the backup, I hadn't realized slot One was only 8GB while the backup was 32! I had filled my card and was done.
I'm sure I could have figured out some way to get around the issue but I had talked myself out of continuing and was heading for home to read the manual.
Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting?
the second most densely populatedmajor city in the country and
the 13th most populous cityin the country
founded on June 29, 1776,
WWII, the confluence of returning servicemen, massive immigration, liberalizing
attitudes, along with the rise of the "hippie counterculture" the Sexual Revolution,the Peace Movementand
other factors led to the "Summer of Love" and
the gay rights movement, cementing the city as a center of activism.
you don’t need this: three-quarters of the city was destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and fire!
