Hunkered Down, and 2010-Bound

The twenty three inches of snow we got last week is melting fast after hanging around for a week.

But I have figured out how to put the remaining mounds to good use: We now have a rather large-ish, walk-out Diet Mtn. Dew refrigerator.

The caffeine will be timely and appreciated, as I am spending the week in The Cave trying to knock off my first of three, blog-related New Year's resolutions. More on that in a few days -- hopefully.

But before we head into 2010, one last look at some of my favorite stuff from Strobist in 2009, in case you missed it the first time. (Windows will open in a new frame, so you can 'command-W' to close them and remain either here or in your feed reader.)

Using nature's fridge must be a male thing. I did something similar a few days ago using natural light. But since we don't have M.D. here, I went for an acceptable subject substitute.

Agreed. Thanks for your giving spirit David.
And now I don't feel alone in my Diet Mtn Dew addiction. I have to know though, does anyone else drink 4+ a day?

Hey Dave!
Thanks for the tip on the Dan Winters book. Absolutely fantastic! Looking forward to another year "with you". I imagine 2010 will be even more awesome than 2009 ;)

Happy new year!

Thanks for helping me take my photography to a new level. Here's an example. This took 500 strobes but it was worth every cent. http://jimpalfreyman.zenfolio.com/img/v5/p904472787-5.jpg

My vote for the Strobist Quote of the Year: "...using the streaming sunlight from back camera right and a very convenient fill goat from from camera left."

I checked with Calumet in Chicago.. they don't keep fill goats in stock.

Happy New Year!
Dave
