Two by Two

An unscheduled bout of spinning last night saw another bobbin of singles completed. There is till a very long way to go, however.

Mr L wanted to play on his keyboard, which is in the sitting room, so he lit a fire (it’s a bit chilly and dank in there, and asked me to come spin and keep him company. It seemed an excellent idea to me, so I took Morgana down and sat by the fire spinning and singing along to his accompaniment. We are uncertain which is worse – his playing or my croaking, but it was fun.

In the intervals between spinning (I am caring for my hands these days) I played with my camera some more. I was trying out the highest ISO setting to take images of the menagerie without use of flash.

There is a bit of noise at ISO 6400, but quite acceptable, I think?

The 365 photo project is proving to be time-consuming and it took many failed shots today to come up with my representation of “Two.”

It’s OK while we are on holiday but I shan’t be able to keep this up once we return to routine.

Some of the shots that did not get picked:

I liked the bokeh but the wrong fingers are in focus

Nice light and good use of negative space but not exactly a killer shot

I actually had a plan for today that involved two fountain pens. Try as I might, I just could not get them to do anything interesting!

“Three” tomorrow – got any ideas for what I might do?

I think that I may make a Blipfoto badge to show my 365 project photos here, rather than keep on spending time in writing them up. Not much use if you read this via RSS but what can I say? Subscribe to my nybblets feed, I suppose 🙂

Badge now added to right hand side of the footer.

Determinedly Cheering Myself Up

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
