Rear End Camera Installation

7/23/14 Wednesday in Rochester, MA (Gateway To Cape Cod-TT/OW)

The day started out warm and lovely but we knew it would become very hot and humid. Part of the ebb and flow of weather in the East. We weren’t inclined to get hot walking as tourists or especially sitting on a hot, sunny beach so John got busy setting up the rear view camera all morning.  It’s a Voyager WVCMS10B-Digital Wireless Color CMOS Camera that we’d purchased from   I cleaned house plus I worked at cleaning off the silicone from the Zanzibar’s camera cover, so we could attach it with new silicone successfully.   Thank heavens for air conditioning.

More inside efforts during the afternoon: I worked on the blog while John figured out (with some assistance from Monaco) how to get the 12 volt power to the monitor using the original wires, then to the camera. The new wireless set (camera and monitor) are smaller than the original so he also needed something to mount them on. After getting the power working, he rested (napped I say). When he got up he’d figured out how to mount both monitor and camera. We’ll see how it pans out tomorrow. It’s supposed to rain all day so it’ll be great for this sort of project. I’m just thrilled with what he’s accomplished at this point.

This rhododendron was at the Plimoth Plantation. Rarely see them in partial bloom like this.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
