I am sort of one of those guys...

in the film adaptation of James Dickey's Deliverance 70's super hunk Burt Reynolds drives around in the lead of a convoy of cars headed on a canoe trip
he does not know where he is going yet he has selected himself as the leader

I hate to admit it
sometimes... that is how I roll

this weekend as others watched the second of three football games on thanksgiving day I sat at the kid;s table and toyed with my somewhat broken digital camera
I had seen some stuff on how to turn a basic digital camera into an infrared camera
the instructions were easy enough
yet I went free form
watched the online tutorial

read a page on the subject
then ignored all the tips and tricks and just did it on my own

yes... I just wung it!
wung? past tense of wing
as in... to wing it

the cloudy day did not allow for the dramatic images I was looking for


will toy with this old camera and its modified lens later this week
hopefully my results are better than what I achieved thus far

oh... but the Burt Reynolds character is right... sometimes you do need to lose yourself to find yourself

and this spot with the old barn and shack
