25 Apr 11. While working in the yard on Saturday, I ran out of space in the yard waste container so went next door to borrow a neighbor's. In the process I noticed that she had some nice tulips in her garden so I went back to get a few shots. While attempting to shoot a frame or two an individual who was looking at the next door home, which had gone on the market that morning, started a conversation with me that led to a discussion of us building our new home. As it turned out the individual, another Ballard resident, knew exactly where we are building, was aware of the farmhouse my father and grandfather had built, was familiar with my cousin's family operation in Hansville, and had recently built a home near Kingston with the help of his brother. It never ceases to amaze me with how small a world we occupy. The conversation was beginning to get long winded, as at one point I had to explain that I would continue chatting but that I needed to simultaneously shoot the flowers as the sunlight striking them was rapidly changing. Although the chat did tend to get in the way of the shoot a bit, I still managed to come up with a couple of usable shots. ISO 200; 1/320 sec @ f / 13.
