[715] Leap Year 2016

Today is February 29, 2016. It is a leap year. This happens once every four years.

We get an extra day. It is up to us how we use and appreciate this extra day.  Unfortunately for me today wasn't that great.

Nero, our pet labrador, was sent to the vet because he had been vomiting all morning and was very weak. He's pretty up there in age, I think he's at least twelve years old. Maybe even fourteen.

His brother Travis has been bummed the whole day. He's been lying down and skulking. They've been together since birth, since they were given to us.

It bums me out. I just hope for the best outcome with Nero. I hope he isn't suffering.

[714] Photography

I still take photos. I still try to follow the rule of thirds and find good camera angles. Sadly I think all the things I learned before when I was still shooting with film are now rarely used.

I just snap whatever I see. Which is sad.

Honestly I still stand with my previous belief - I shot better photos when I was using film. Simply because I was limited with the photos I could take, I was more careful with my shots.

And to be honest I really miss taking the photos I used to take. I guess it's also my fault I don't find time to take photos.

So with that statement I guess I will try to do my previous 365 day challenge of one photo per day. And not one forced photo. I'll try to take one good photo per day. Here's the catch: I don't know when I'll start.

[713] The 2016 NBA Slam Dunk Contest

In one word, amazing.

Aaron Gordon should have won it. His dunks were more impressive and more challenging than Zach LaVine's dunks. However LaVine did more impressive dunks during the tie-breaker rounds.

What LaVine did during the entire contest was amazing, though. And I'm glad he finally brought some swagger to his post-dunk celebrations. That was what was missing from what he did last year.

I'm glad I was able to watch the live telecast. It was worth watching.

Thank you, Mr. Aaron Gordon and Mr. Zach LaVine. This is why we play, and this is why I watch. I love this game.
