Day 30

MASUM PRACTICING BALL CONTROL before a tournament match.

I ATTENDED A TTL “LIGHTROOM” WORKSHOP, on Saturday pm, from 3-6:30 PM.  The trip over in a CNG cost me $1, and lunch cost me $3.  The workshop cost was $7, which included a nice chicken roll-up and a drink.  It was presented by Jenny and Neerod, a husband and wife time.  They had a nice powerpoint including demonstrations on the program itself.

Here is a photo of the TTLers that in November went to the Hakaluki Haor and Moulovibazar for a two day photo safari. TTL (a Bangladesh “Through the Lens” photo club.  You can check out the club on Flicker or Facebook.

Day 24

HAPPY 59TH BIRTHDAY to my brother, Warren, living in Mesa, Arizona.

This photo is of some of the players I play football with 2-5 mornings a week at 6:45 am.  This is the second place trophy, since we lost the final game of the tournament 2-0.

Day 23

CORNER KICK!  I promise there was a ball there, and it vanished.  It didn’t produce a goal, so we ended up losing the finals match 2-0.  This football tournament was stretched over several months on a field adjacent to Taj Mahal road in Mohammadpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Day 22

BLANKETS LEFT OUT TO DRY in the sunshine,  which these days pleasantly warms the temperatures to at least 70 degrees.
