Day 91 – Busy busy busy

December 20, 2009 Leave a comment

Today didn’t go as planned but hey stuff like this happens. On the way out for a sunrise image I managed to do two pirouettes in the car within a few miles of starting the engine. Recovered without problems I decided to turn beck and wait for a safer sunset option. In the meantime I went and did all the Christmas food shopping and the last of my present shopping. With it all done with plenty of time to spare I got a call from my sister, her central heating had stopped and wouldn’t restart. That was the end of my plans. A few hours later and I have just gotten home from stripping drown the heating system and locating the problem. A new part is needed so they will have a cold night tonight. With any luck I’ll have it back up and running again in the morning once the hardware store opens,provided I can take a half day from the office. All these skills and abilities I put down to the teachings of my father, he was a man who could put his hand to anything and always explained to me what he was doing. This is certainly the reason I can competently do such a variety of jobs from repairing circuit boards to roofing.
Just aswell I got the image above with my camera phone before starting my shopping.

Day 41 – Please don’t do this to my car

October 31, 2009 2 comments


Today while out and about I dared to park right next to this wheel clamp. I figured that they would never think someone would be so daring to do it and leave the car alone. I got away with it….. this time. I only used my iphone today.

Manual Reading

Page 45, Reverting the camera to default settings. I had to do this once when the one of the buttons on the camera started acting strange. It would call up a different function every second time it was pressed.

Professional Photographers Images Studied

I was in a local shopping complex today and noticed a photography studio stand with a girl selling photo packages. I took a bit of time looking at the images on the advertising stand. Standing there for a few minutes I was surprise with how many people were signing their kids up for studio sessions. It has me thinking a bit.

It was all high key photography so anyone from Cork will know who I’m on about.
