180 days of 2013.....summer holidays are in swing now.  Spent the day napping and hiding from the HEAT!!! Tuesday is supposed to feel like +38!!!  Scully filled in as my model for my picture.  Not even sure the ISO on this shot, but it was taken almost in complete darkness!!!  Love the Canon 5D!! :) -Randy

Loving that now I can shed my teacher worries and chill for the summer, but today has BEEN HOT!!!! Need some cool basement time....-Randy

Didn't see much of the moon due to clouds.  Had a tired day, fighting off a cold and just not feeling great.  Had to do some creative editing on this shot to make it look fun enough to pop in to the 365 flow. Hope everyone had a good weekend.  Starting my LAST week of work this week!!! :) -Randy

What a week, ends with the poor City of Calgary getting flooded, along with a ton of southern AB locations. :(  I hope for the people displaced that they can find shelter and stay safe.  Went outside my front door and shot this picture of the moon, supposed to be a super moon on Sunday night.  This looks like the start of it. -Randy ~ 172/365 ~

~ 171/365 Worst Night of the year by far ~

© www.randypond.ca
Okay, worst night of the year!!! Watched the Spurs lose to the stupid HEAT with my buddy Nestor, that was the good part.  The BAD part was I am 99.9% sure I ate some BAD food for lunch at school which resulted in a terrible headache and I'll save you further details....but it felt like death.  Was able to snap this picture before going to bed to pass out.  (update: I woke up the next day feeling 100% better, so pretty sure now it was that "food" I ate, note to self, not buying anymore lunch from school for a long while).

Worked out at my gym for the first time today.  Was a good time, enjoyed seeing all the muscle heads laughing at the old guy on the treadmill sweating like a beast.  I am learning that I am old and I really don't care.....I just wanna be healthy and live a longer life so I can take lots more pictures. :) -Randy
