Chasing Crows

After photographing the Rookery at dawn this morning and missing some beautiful shots I’ve decided to put my bird chasing on hold. The limitations of what I can do with my vintage equipment has been frustrating but hope to get out with the auto lens for a evening landscape for a cure.

Today I thought it said “waxing gibbous moon”, turns out it’s full tonight and tomorrow night. We have a ritual that I like, we go for a fish taco at Alamo Barbecue and I take a night city landscape. Tonight we got a Barbecue Taco which was judged by the best food critic in town, my wife. BEST RVA Barbecue, Period!

    At least we are no longer troubled by issues of aspect ratio.

  4. Baked Kale Chips

    Original recipe makes 6 servings
    1 bunch kale
    1 tablespoon olive oil

    Directions

    Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.
    With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt.
    Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.
