JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 08.03.19

JSP WIR_080319

I’m back.

Vacation – one of the best I’ve ever taken – is over.

And my thumbs are sore.

Why are my thumbs – more specifically that thick, fleshy area on your palm under your thumb – sore?

The only thing I can think of is that for 10 days, I was off of a keyboard. No laptop, no computer.

So my “space-bar” digit fell out of shape. When I finally logged back into my work network, I saw 350 emails in my In box. Wednesday night I started to slog through them, DWR (deleting without reading) as many as I could.

But responding to so many that my typing fingers had to get back in shape.

And now my thumbs are sore.

I’m also still processing the photos I took from our trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone.  I shot-to-card the whole trip, didn’t drag a long a laptop, so there are a lot to get through. I’ll share a some fun ones that stick out in a few days.

In the meantime, I’ll be shooting a movie premier on Wednesday. That should be fun!

Hey, it’s August – back up your July work!
