Equipment Trial #4

The only equipment failure today, on a sustained 5k walk, was the metal buckle on my fabric web belt, which broke into three pieces while I was getting dressed! Obviously my rapidly increasing girth sorely warrants action if it's reached the point where my belt buckles are breaking!


Earlier in the day the sky was blue and sunny. LIkewise, later in the day the sky was blue with defined clouds. During my little jaunt, however, the sky was overcast and hazy, resulting in dull lighting and a white-out sky not optimal for photography.
