A Bad Day With A Camera

What Would Ray Do

It was approaching 8:00 pm, and I hadn’t gotten out with a camera yet today. I got busy at work and forgot my lunch break entirely. Then I made supper because my poor wife is trying to get ready for a conference she is presenting at. The clock was running out on me. So I asked myself, What Would Ray Do? (WWRD).

WWRD, Tom Sadler Bridge, Strathmore, AB, 2024-03-26

That’s actually pretty easy to answer. For the last half decade at least, what Ray has done when he had his tail in a photographic crack is to find some way to take a new picture of the skating rink in Robinson, the community he lived in. Spring, summer, winter, fall, he worked it with his camera, usually his iPhone.

Ray and I often joked that my equivalent of his rink is the Tom Sadler Bridge that is just down the road from my home. I have photographed it so much that I now call myself The Official Photographer of Tom Sadler Bridge. That’s how I wound up taking a picture of the bridge again this evening, and I could almost hear Ray snickering at me as I did.

The sole image in today’s diary entry was produced using a Canon EOS R5 mirrorless body coupled with the RF mount version of the el-cheapo Kodak pancake lens (cap).
