a teatray in the sky

because waking up is hard to do

Posted in 5D Mark II, Defrag, G9, Photography, Technique and Development by firthefirst on April 14, 2010

you know the feeling.  alarm goes off (or doesn’t, depending on your luck today) and all too suddenly you are faced with the fact that you are going to work today (aren’t you?).  you turn around a few times in the sheets because, um, that helps?  and then its off to shock the bejeezus out of your central nervous system with a shower.  during which time you wonder about certain certainties in life.

like, who came up with the idea that weeks should have seven days.  really.  it’s not like 7 divides into anything, genius.  definitely not 365.  or 366.  or 31.  or 30.  only February’s 28, and well, february is a hot mess anyway, isn’t it.  if we’re going to pick numbers that don’t divide, we could have at least gone with a nice round 8 (you’d have the Cantonese vote for sure) and gotten a far more appealing work-play ratio of 5:3.

so here’s a tribute to all the desk jockeys out there, and an exploration of the ritual morning shower, with the macro.  for you photogeeks (Stephen, you know who you are) out there, one of these things is not like the others — taken with the G9 rather than the 5D II.  guess which.

    interesting thought.. sometimes the chinese calendar makes more sense to me because one “month” is actually a “moon”, meaning that’s the cycle of the moon from nothing to full and back to nothing again. i’m not sure if there is a “week” concept in chinese though. 😛
