All gone

All goneThe souvenir, like the holiday, is now all gone. Both the chocolates and the break were first class.

We arrived home yesterday morning, tired but relaxed. Mr L went straight to his desk and logged on for work and I spent my day emptying the van… and selecting holiday snaps for backblipping. I ran out of time for shooting anything for Derelict Thursday, so opted for blipping the sunrise shot I took before we dashed off to catch the ferry yesterday.

All benefit from being seen in the larger view.

It was difficult to choose what to Blip – I had over 500 images from the trip and will spend the next several days selecting images for Brunhilde’s new blog: [url=]Two Snails[/url]

I’m back to earth with a bump now and already bemoaning how boring my life is and what on earth can I shoot for my Blip. Today’s weather gave me an opportunity for my own personal winter challenge: [i]Indoors if Wet.[/i] This is a low-tech shoot-anything-you-can-find in a makeshift studio setup venture.[url=] Want to join me?[/url]

The chocolates were purchased at the Balnakeil Craft Village and managed to survive the journey home but were polished off by last night. Yummy.

Setup: scrap of silk on my craft bench, chocolate box lit by ambient light from one window at left, light from right hand window blocked with piece of black styrene. Tripod – lowest ISO setting my camera offers (50). Bit of a rush job as husband and dogs were waiting to go walkies.

Week five of lockdown v2.0 begins today. We have new rules, slightly more relaxed but with the addition of a nightly curfew (from 15th December.) Does that then make this Lockdown v2.1? I think that it probably does! … Continue readingDeterminedly Cheering Myself Up

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
