I tend not to take the weather personally, but I gather that summer has returned to Chicago right after I left. While I was there this past weekend, wind and rain made it impossible to even stand near the lake, let alone walk. The water- and shockproof camera I got myself for the mountains was never needed more. Back in the hotel, I found myself blowdrying my shoes, a first for me. Oh well. Great burger dinner though in the Windy City.
Speaking of traveling: it’s now all limited to carrying iDevices. No more checking of notebooks through security. As a consumer sheep, I never felt more liberated. And Dropbox is my friend, wherever I go. The only downside is that there’s no good workflow yet when it comes to photography. I sure hope to sort this out soon.
