It’s really that simple. Get off the crack of free. Stop being a skinflint. There really is no free lunch.

NIKON D5100 (35mm, f/5, 1/1000 sec, ISO100)

Although I had to be at my client’s office at 8AM, I decided that I could arrive just before 6:30AM, snap some photos, and be back on the road by 7AM.

NIKON D5100 (35mm, f/5, 1/160 sec, ISO100)

But as the date approached, I realized that attending would mean getting up at 5AM. This is 1 hour earlier than I normally get up.  It also meant I wouldn’t have any time to eat a proper breakfast or do my normal coffee ritual.  I almost backed out.  I am glad I did not.

I got some great photos.

JW Lees Harvest Ale 2011 (Calvados)

It’s a vintage barley wine made from the first hops of the year . Dark, rich. I had to look up what Calvados is.

Calvados (French pronunciation: ?[kal.va.dos]) is an apple brandy from the French region of Lower Normandy.
