A Week-ish in Photos: 2022, Part 32

August 23, 2022

Monday, August 8: Playing around with my phone camera. I think this was the “stage light mono” setting in portrait mode. Not sure why I have one sleepy eye. Maybe it’s always that way.

Tuesday, August 9: The thimbleberries are starting to ripen. I’ve never picked these in any quantity. They don’t seem to grow in patches the way huckleberries do around here.

Wednesday, August 10: I know it looks like the sun here, but it’s the moon, full and so beautiful I pulled over to snap its picture on my drive to the studio to drop off some things and pick up some other things I needed for the trip I was packing for this day.

Thursday, August 11: Flew to Detroit via Salt Lake City. So few people wearing masks. I did see one guy wearing an elastomeric respirator and wanted to be his friend. At least I had nice views from my window seat to distract myself from all the potential COVID in the airplane.

Friday, August 12: My craft conference didn’t start until later in the day, so I visited some favorite spots in metro Detroit, including this shoe store which pretty much always has too much stock for the space. I can relate.

Saturday, August 13: During lunch break, went to an African restaurant with an old friend I’d met up with at the conference and two of their friends. The food was so good. I was happy to see they were still in business. I miss the variety of restaurants in southeast Michigan.

Sunday, August 14: Today’s lunch break took the same group of us as yesterday to Mexicantown.

Monday August 15: (Yes, this means 8 days for this week’s entry. I wanted my whole trip to be together.) I checked out of the hotel, had my favorite Detroit-style pizza for lunch, took a COVID test to make sure I could fly in good conscience (I’d tested before the conference for the same reason), returned the rental car, and flew home via Minneapolis. I got to the airport in Detroit with enough time to take the light and sound tunnel over to the B & C gates, even though my plane was leaving from A concourse. I just like the tunnel. There’s a button now so people can turn the lights and sounds off. I didn’t try it.
