[Life] Donating Blood

Twilight Lamppost
Originally uploaded by RainPacket.
So today, I decided to go donate blood for the first time. Getty Images was hosting a blood drive (their world HQ is near my house), and I went by after lunch. Partly I went because, with family health stuff so much on my mind, I felt it was important to help out. And partly because it gave an excuse to go wander over towards Getty.

Amusingly, since I had my camera with me at lunch (to make another attempt at the 'Red Wall' picture in better lighting), I got mistaken for a Getty person several times (including having one person try to discuss an assignment!). Ended up feeling pretty woozy by the time I got home, though... bleh.

Now BOTH my arms hurt... the right shoulder, and then the left elbow is a big bruise where they took blood. Haha. (My shoulder gets looked at on Monday, thankfully.) But after work, I wandered a bit and took a few more photographs... I guess talking to Getty folks inspired me, or something.
