Day 79/365 Poem(ish) and Photo...

by Russell Smith March. 19, 2019 243 views

When I was about 6 or 7 I had to memorize a poem. While I do not remember the entire poem the first few lines go. In a minute means tomorrow, tomorrow means someday ....... If my mother was in the continental states I could ask her what the name of the poem was but she isn't right now. I have done a Google search to no avail but anywho. My wife swears these few lines summarize my philosophy about life. I have to correct her and tell her I live my life on island time and that is why do today what there is time for tomorrow hehe. That argument has gotten me a number of eye rolls.

This photo really has nada to do with the lines from the poem but it was the only thing that kept catching my eye as I thought or looked for an appropriate subject for today.

It is amazing to me how much the way the light is falling on the flower can change the look of the flower.

I can see why!
Is it a prime? 
What brand/specs/etc?

100mm macro brand is Tokina so in the budget range . With it being on a asp-c body it will give more of a field of view of a 116mm which is a bit longer than i would prefer but it works nicely. Honestly do not pick it up if auto focus speed maters because it is painfully slow but honestly I rarely use the auto focus on it (unless I am prefocused) . There is a bit of Chromatic Aperation (purple/green fringing) but it is controled nicely in lightroom.

It is funny because I have two in a minutes when I tell the kids . One means in a minute the other means when I decide to get to it . It did not take them long to start asking which one it was lol.

Isn't the title of the poem Procrastination?
You can always quote the famous Mark Twain- in your argument to your wife:
“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.” ― Mark Twain.
Gives your argument validity, if a famous person quoted it! LOL

:) Thank you . Once my mom gets back in the states I will have to ask her the name. We were talking about the poem over the summer and my little pea brain forgot already what the name was hehe.
