I left without my camera last night! I’ve been carrying it for almost three months and last night I forgot to bring it to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsal!! I know that some people do great stuff with their cell phone cameras, but I had never used mine before for that task. I did take some shots with it, but now I have to figure out how to get them out of the camera and on to my laptop. So, don’t look for them too soon!
The choir was wicked. I’m sure I would have gotten even more out of it if I knew the music. They were amazing. We were talking to a volunteer, and he took our address, promising to send us a couple of CDs. We do think we were lucky to have come into Salt Lake City on a Thursday night—rehearsal night.
Today, I did remember my camera when we went to the Temple Square. We asked for a tour and two delightful young women, one from California and the other from Oregon, took us around and showed us a couple of buildings. Their faith is what impressed me the most. I told them we were Jewish and would be asking a lot of questions. We did and they answered them. The only disappointment was that we couldn’t enter the Temple building itself. I remember that from the last time we were here. The whole experience was wicked. I’ll have images to show you maybe tomorrow.
Speaking of tomorrow, we start our four-day trek home. We will drive about 200 miles and stop for the night. I don’t know how much use my camera will get. I started this journey out by shooting out the truck window; I could end it that way. I did some driving by shots on our trip from Grand Lake, Colorado to Jensen, but I haven’t processed them yet.
So we will see what tomorrow brings. I’ll have my camera with me in the front seat.
