365 Photo Project - Day 136

Taken: May 16, 2010, 9 p.m.
Location: Healdsburg, CA

I'm trying to get more organized. I'm convinced it's going to help me be more, well, me. I've got a new dry erase calendar on my wall and I've got my office mostly in order. I'm putting a schedule together so I know what I need to do and when I need to do it. The only thing left is for me to put it into practice.

I'm not the neatest person in the world but I've always been more-or-less organized. I like having things within reach and even when my office is covered in paper, I pretty much know where everything is. Every few weeks, I go through the piles and organize and then start new piles. Hey, it works for me.

The only reason I'm getting more serious about the order of things is because I have so much that I want to do with my time. I know there's almost enough hours in a day for me to accomplishment most of what I want, but it's not going to work unless I make sure it works.

So have pity on me the next few days as I try to better myself and set and keep to a schedule. Maybe even I'll get these posts up on time.

Gonna talk about this photo if only because I was trying for something that didn't quite work. These night shots are tough for me and I'm having to do a lot of experimenting and bracketing to get one that's usable. Unfortunately, my days have been so full lately, that getting out to take a photo before dark hasn't been feasible. This is a shot of a flag in the breeze over a strip mall in town. While I like the capture of the flag's waving, I wish the exposure worked better. Like I said, I'm learning. Some days, all I have is an experiment gone wrong.
