Sorry for the lack of postings the past few days. Things around here have been busy, plus the weather’s been crappy, and I just didn’t feel like spending the couple hours it takes every morning to put one of these together. Plus I was sleeping late, and basically rushing out the door to work, so it just wasn’t happening.

Today I’ve got a few more pictures from the May Day Parade here in Minneapolis. More dancers and becostumed sorts. They were colorful and pretty and good to look at and photograph. And part of the whole point of going out to the parade was to spend more time taking pictures of people, so I did. I’m pretty pleased with most of them, too. But I think I’m nearing the end of the list for those pictures. Yeah, there are still a fair number of good ones I haven’t posted here, but I need to find some new subjects to mix things up a bit. Good thing there’s an outing planned for tomorrow where I’ll probably find some new stuff to goggle at through the camera lens. Heck, I’m not even sure if I’ll concentrate on people or buildings or what. I just hope the weather’s a little nicer than yesterday and today.

But that brings me to the upcoming weekend. With tomorrow’s outing, two different folks out performing that I’d like to go see (Cousin Dad’s at Dulono’s and Karl’s playing at the Old Man River Cafe in St. Paul) Saturday night, Mother’s Day on Sunday, and the Saints kicking off the regular season on Monday night, there’s a good chance next week’s updates are going to be spotty, too. But with any luck, I’ll find time to slap some pictures up here for you to look at, and bitch about how I’m too busy getting out and doing stuff to post much around here. I guess there’s worse problems a guy could have, right?

But that’s definitely going to do it for this week. Have a good weekend, and perhaps I’ll see you around here on Monday.
