I am packing underwear, socks, and gowns in WalMart bags; that's a new recycling idea. They don't have to be wrinkle-proof and are easily available. Hmm...maybe I don't need a suitcase. I also have a rollator (kinda like a walker) which takes up space in SUV. It will aid me in walking; I can store camera, purse, portable oxygen (if needed) in a seat where I can also sit if I become winded.

SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera)
Note: New Black Garbage Can Glare
Today I am posting a subtle use of a polarizer. I was sitting on front covered deck with my camera, hoping some birds would perch in a row on our incoming TV and phone lines. There were plenty of birds, but the choir was not in session, I guess.

Slight Polarization- a Tad More But NOT total as in #3
Would Make It My Choice. The Can Is New Black
Highly Polished Plastic
I have mentioned before my use of a polarizer to darken blue sky, but it also has other uses, such as reflected light. I am posting three pictures, one where the polarizer was not used (even though on the lens-#1), one with partial polarization (#2) and one where the light reflection was fully polarized (3). I happen to like (2) because the black garbage can is mine; it is highly polished hard plastic as it is new. Later it will look more like #3.

Maximum Polarization of Reflection On Black Can
On Black Can Note: in each photo the polarization
also slightly changes other colors in each photo
I have also scattered some photos throughout this post that are in the category of "this and that."

Our Route to and from Rapid City SD includes parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and Arkansas ........ we think.
The Reunion time is comprised of four days of touring all day, with a banquet at the end of the fourth day.
We are allowing 3 days before the Reunion starts for me to adjust to the altitude. Heart, COPD and asthma patients have to take precautions but can still enjoy this beautiful country with a little prudence and preparation.
I'm sure blogland will still be here when I get back and will try to check in from time to time to comment, if not add a photo.
