I woke up at 10:20 am, and I decided to go to yoga class at noon. While hanging out in the sauna before yoga, I suddenly remembered that the Winter Olympics 2018 in PyeongChange, South Korea will start in February. But I forgot the day of the opening ceremony. So many things are coming up in February that I am not sure I will do all of the activities. I looked up Winter Olympics on my iPhone, and I noticed that the Opening Ceremony will be on tonight at 8 pm, and for three hours. The Winter Olympics will last for about two weeks, from February 9th to February 25th, on NBC. I have always loved winter sports, snow, and ice. I have always enjoyed skiing, sledding, building snowman, ice skating, and sometimes even watching hockey, even though I don’t know too much about hockey. After yoga class, I decided to tape the three-hour opening ceremony, and maybe not go to the Woodbridge walking group tonight. I will just attend the photography meetup at Canon, mostly because I want to learn more about using my mother’s old Canon EOS 650. When I returned home, I will watch the opening ceremony for blogging purposes.
I added a snapshot that I took at Beverly Hills, on Rodeo Drive, when I went once on an LA excursion trip with my mother. I think this was during the summertime in the 90s, and I was taking a photography class for fun at UCI. My mother’s reflection came out in the window display, which is interesting because she always loved watching the Olympics, mostly gymnastics, figure skating, and volleyball. She always used to brag that she used to excel in Volleyball when she was young. The banner in the window display promotes the USA in the Olympics. I end up enlarging this photograph into large size in the UCI photo developing lab and placing it on a thick foam board. I still have it upstairs. I should bring it downstairs, but I am not sure where to place it.
