At 6:30 AM yesterday I was fine. Around 9:30 AM I started feeling a bit tired. By 12:00 PM, my throat was on fire and my head threatened to explode. Damn microbes—is there anything worse then a cold when it’s 30ºC outside?

I really had the best intentions in the world too: I wanted to document the conference I was giving last night at the photo club in St-Bruno. Fun night, despite my queasiness throughout—adrenaline is an impressive pain killer. But when I pulled out my camera and took the first of what should’ve been several shots, the light on the back flashed red: no card. Wow.

So we’re a day later and I’m just waiting for the pills to kick in...because I need to fight this off, pronto. It’s shaping up to be one of those days. Three quick double exposures below—I managed to find an SD card. Boy, I’m a real photographer now ;)
