picking up the pace for covid 19 vaccinations at a local publix

Biden has promised to “toss eligibility lists” in order to get everyone vaccinated by May 1st. Tonight as I was out getting a few things at a local Publix, I saw this for the first time. I know it was new as of today because I’d been in there earlier to pick up a few necessary housecleaning items, as well as a bit of lunch for my wife and I. Tonight was to pick up coffee filters I’d forgotten earlier in the day.

I think this is great. I had to get told by Orange County in an email, and my wife and I had to go through the process of registering via a county-run website, then go over to the Orange County Convention center for our two Moderna shots, one 6 January, and the second 9 February. That helped open up my wife getting her back surgery the end of February, so I can’t complain about how we got ours. But right now, if we all want to put this pandemic behind us, then we need to get all those vaccine doses out to everyone as quickly as possible. I think Publix is stepping in to help with that.

classic color look or craptastic look?

Drive-by RedPlaying with trying to recreate a color classic look, courtesy of Lightroom 6 and Nik Collection’s Analog Efex Pro 2. I was sitting in traffic at a stoplight and looked out my window to see this bedding. I grabbed the E-M1.2 I’ve been carrying with me in the car and grabbed about six shots before the light turned green. This one satisfied me so I ran it through the effects filter. What makes it a bit odd is that I cropped it 16:9 in Lightroom. Old film wasn’t 16:9, at least none that I ever knew about. 16:9 is a bit more cinematic.
UniversalSame type of opportunity, except this time I was across from Universal Studios Orlando. Don’t ask me what I saw in this, except it struck a chord of the types of photos my parents and family members took on a trip to Florida back before I was four. We all traveled down to Miami. I still have fragments of memories from that trip. I didn’t travel back to Florida until right before I was married in the 1980s.
The rose
This of the rose I left alone. On my monitor it has a velvety quality, perhaps due to the monitor physics. It’s blooming in my garden. This little bloom heralds a much greater number of roses to come. I left it the way it essentially came out of the camera (I cropped it to a square).
