More often than not, it seems we can’t really see Popo due to dust, clouds, pollution, or a combination of the three. This week, we’re seeing evening rains which helps keep the dust level down a bit. My office work space at home is usually covered in a new layer of dust on a daily basis. I could shut the window, but it would be 90 degrees plus in here if I did that. As it is, the window is only open about 2 inches (vertically as it slides open from side to side).
But the rains are giving us at least a morning view at times. I had to go up and check the water tank on the roof this morning, so I figured I might was well take the camera up with me and see if I could get a decent shot (despite the high-tension wires that will always be the bane of my photog experience on the roof)). I did a little editing to bring out the blue and show up enough contrast to show the snow line. I could look at this all day. Lovely.
Not that I could. We’re working on renewing Dayton’s visa. Beth and I have permanent visas and will never have to renew them again (so they say). Cameron’s expired and it isn’t likely that he’ll be able to renew his. He’ll have to visit us as a tourist from now on. We thought the expiration date for Dayton’s was in May. Nope. It was in April. By the time we discovered that, it was already past due by a week. So, that oversight will cost us hours of extra work, waiting, interviews, and a couple hundred dollars extra. It pays to pay attention.
In the meantime, I’ll try not to think about that and look at this picture again. Lovely still.
