…I’d have missed this

Sitting at the table, enjoying a late breakfast, as I do most weekends, I looked up and there was Bambi. In its winter coat, the young deer was enjoying breakfast too. I usually have the Camera sitting within reach, so I started taking pictures through the fairly spotty windows.

Yeah, I should have been at a union meeting, but 10:00h is too early, and my weekends are my own. It is sunny though, so it’s time to get outside and start cleaning up what the recent storms left behind…

Oscar or Morgestraich…

…a bit of both!

Last night I watched a bit of both. This is the first time in a long time when the women looked really glam in their gowns. Most of them actually wore “gowns” rather than thin little rags that looked like ill-fitting slips, barely covering their nipples. So many seemed to believe that high fashion is synonymous with good taste, yuck!

The live cams captured it well, although all city/street lights are out, you don’t see much more than laterns on people’s masks, little blobs of light, and the big laterns that show the cliques’ theme for the year. But the audio was great and I having going at work now. Last year the live cams could be controlled by users, but the panning was erratic and missed a lot of the action. This year they are set to automatic panning. Select from 5 cams here: Fasnacht live cams.

OK, back to work!
