Pinwheel, pinwheel spinning around...

Does anyone else remeber that song from a show on Nickelodeon?
I feel like I am spinning right now- a little dizzy from the work week and prep for our trip. A little dizzy from teaching 4 classes in 3 days. A little dizzy just because that is how I am feeling lately.

I am looking forward to the therma-rest pad and the camp stove. Looking forward to the hiking boots and the tank tops. The the colors of the desert and the sand dunes...
to the magical energy that death valley holds.

pinwheel shadows
Taken last Sunday on April 1st while strolling around downtown with Urban Climber and Andy.

There were hundreds of pinwheels stuck in the grass outside the Pioneer Center. despite the shiny goodness of it all in person, this shadow shot is one of my favorites from the day.

The new camera came yesterday. A few things missing (wide angle lens, car charger, and extra battery, big tri-pod) according to "Tommy" the things are on their way. I had a sinking feeling that we just handed over a pile of cash and got hosed, but I am going to keep telling that feeling to hush and know that those goodies are on the way.

thanks KM. I put a few shots that I did around the house with the new camera on my Flickr Stream.
I can hardly wait to get in the car... (neither can the dog)
peace out!
