WAR of 1812 Fort York, Toronto, Ontario, Canada – writing desk or secretary

visited there last week with my Nikon D3100 and a Metz 44 flash

organized and simplicity, wonder where the candlestick sat.  For those unfamiliar with the design, the writing surface is a fold down surface.  When writing done, the surface lifts back up and locks securely with a key.  There were also a few secret compartments in desks of this type.

early 19th century time travel always jars when it reminds how much we rely on electricity for absolutely everything.

Nikon D3100 battery finally caught me napping

For once I got embarassed by not checking my Nikon DSLR D3100 lithium battery charge state.  I normally go for a week without recharging.  But at an art show opening, no juice in the battery.  Sheesh.  Thinking back over the week I had shot a lot of shots at Fort York in Toronto, many with the aux.  flash (Metz 44) in use.  But I had my Blackberry Playbook with me and it had half its charge left and so a few shots got taken.  Enough to put on the blog of the Huronia Museum where the art show is running until June 27….
