I had to go downtown yesterday for Jury Duty which I'll admit to not looking forward to. I had to arrive bright and early to basically sit in the Jury lounge and wait to see if my services were needed.
I was not one of the names which were called during the morning session.We were told that we would be breaking for lunch but would have to return after that and see if any of the afternoon court cases needed us.
I wasn't thrilled that I would have to return after lunch but I decided to wander around, getting in a walk as well as photographing downtown Raleigh. That way I wouldn't mind as much because I could pretend I was downtown for a photo shoot.
What I didn't expect was that while my head was in the clouds, photographing the skyline, I tripped and had a really nasty fall. I managed to break my fall with one hand and protect my camera but I busted my knee.I limped back to the courthouse, wishing I was a bird flying to perch on the the roof tops. I was called to serve on a Jury but thankfully was excused during the elimination process so I didn't have to limp back today. The good news is I did get a lot of downtown shots, although I'm not that great at architectural photography. I'd like to practice that some more another time. However, I'll have to remember that there are a lot of nasty curbs just waiting to trip up a roving Juror with her eye to the sky instead of towards the ground.
