Day 73 – Flat pack or firewood

December 2, 2009 Leave a comment


Another quick and dirty image today. I was about to load up the stove but took a moment to capture this first. It’s hard to photo a dirty glove on its own, I tried but didn’t manage it. Yesterdays road trip resulted in a a room full of flat pack shelving that isn’t going to assemble itself. I always think of it as lego for grown ups. I used to love lego as a child.

Manual Reading

Page 86, Self timer operation. I use this when I’m getting the cable release out of my bag. Then I usually forget to turn it off after I have plugged in the cable and sometimes miss the moment. But there is always another moment around the corner.

Photographer Images Studied

Roger Overall. He has a beautiful way of capturing the moment.

Work towards self employment

Some people may not see this as completing this task for today. I however believe that an organized space is a moreĀ  productive place, so today I am assembling the flat pack shelving I bought yesterday. If you could see my desk now you would agree that it’s needed.


Day 26 – I’m struggling

October 16, 2009 Leave a comment


Todays image was a struggle. Lunch was short and I was a but lazy when I got home after work. All I kept saying was “I’ll make another image in 5 minutes”.

I took a few images while out for my lunchtime walk but rushed them all. I tried capturing the sparks from a cigarette lighter and then a potted plant leaf. God loves a trier so I’m told. I’m still really enjoying the challenge.

Manual Reading

This morning I read page 84, When Autofocus Fails and Manual Focusing. Nothing to explain on this really.
