365:2011

365 Days – a project to take a self portrait every day for a year. The rules are simple. I must be visible in the picture, and I must take the picture. This is my second complete 365 days project. A remote shutter control really helps with taking self portraits. When I started my first 365 days in 2007 all I had was a 10 second timer. It’s surprising how fast you can get at getting into a shot!

Making stuff (365:361) – Today I made myself useful by making stuff in the garage. 2 pictures

Today we went Boxing day shopping. And we bought this nifty hand-held GPS receiver as a joint present for us both. One of the problems with GPS is buying the maps which cost more than the receivers – this unit allows you to create and load your own using Google Earth – which is brilliant …

Christmas day Despite my preference for a lie-in we were up before seven, then it was non-stop with present opening, visiting family, food, drinks and finally a couple of card games. Somehow the evening slipped away from me while we researched our joint Christmas present which we may go out and buy tomorrow. Exciting. In …

It’s been a while since I took a wall picture. Working late again – 2am.

That’s all.

Another late night (365:354).

Cat and mouse (365:353) – Sprinky decided to fall asleep on my EfM lesson notes.

I checked my eyes; unfortunately you can’t see what she was doing. I can tell you that she was standing behind the camera and used a very effective technique to make me smile. If you’ve been wondering why there have not been many ‘Wall’ shots of late – the answer is quite straight forward. When …

Gary eats a Tie fighter (cookie)

And swiftly dispatches Daft Cookie-Monster in the process Actually it’s the ‘H’ from Christmas; Lanie made some Christmas cookies tonight.

I promised some pictures of the sparkles (when the sun finally came out again) When we reorganised our office area Ginger put lots of glass and crystal beads in the windows. However, there was a problem, getting sparkles like this all over my monitors required the installation of the ‘anti-sparkle screen’.

Gary Allman checking his EFM Coursework

Ginger dropped me off early at church tonight. I used the extra time to sit in the classroom and go over my coursework.

An afternoon in bed (365:348) – I thought I was feeling better, Unfortunately not.

The erratic focusing on the camera is starting to annoy me The camera software tells me the camera focused on my chest. So why is my hand in the primary focus zone? Sigh. I can’t wait to get this project finished and run some detailed focus tests.

Ginger said this picture is me. It must be the slight smile.

Apple, cheese and crackers (365:345).
