Black Tar and White Powder

My two favorite drugs of choice: black tar (my camera) and white powder (seen below).


Not the best image, but it’s the first time I lugged a DSLR up to the slopes. I didn’t have a choice since I dropped and broke my point-and-shoot in Shanghai back in 2007. The picture was taken this past weekend with a non-wide angle lens (boo…) at the top of Homewood, over-looking Lake Tahoe. This is where we take the high schoolers every year. (You can see them in the picture.) Homewood is not as big as some of the other resorts, but as you can see, it has a great view.

In case you didn’t know, the title is in reference to this.
