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 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.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
