As it was Lanie’s birthday this week I couldn’t let her escape my sweeping up of old lost pictures. Here’s a link to some more pictures from the same session.

Katie – pictures rescued from the cutting room floor – I found these pictures in 2015 and thought they’d be worth processing and sharing. 4 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 …

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.

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.

Just another day Looks like I’m happy though 🙂 This is a re-edit the original looked like this.

I’m now well into year two of my EfM course

Once more I stand before the wall

I’ve fallen behind with this project Over a month behind (today’s December 4th). My computer decided to go slow making it almost impossible to process pictures. I’ve kept on taking them, I just couldn’t process and upload them. To make matters worse this coincided with a lot of work (which is continuing). I’ve now got …

This plastic rat has been making appearances in lots of places over the past few days I recently retrieved this rather gruesome toy from its hiding place in the garage. Since then it has appeared in many unexpected places, including lounging on Katie’s chair, lurking behind the bathroom door, tucked up in our bed, and …

This time we’re only 600 miles apart, not 5,000. Taken as a whole, today wasn’t behaving at its best. I started out working on my studying for class tonight in the hope that I’d be able to go, but because I messed up the childcare arrangements, I didn’t. I didn’t get to go to the …

Well it worked. I spent the day processing pictures – a slow job until I get a faster computer. After getting the kids from school we took Alek and Katie to a career fair. Having made sure that they were actually asking questions and collecting information, Lanie and I went to the library. I couldn’t …

It would have been an okay picture if the camera hadn’t focused on my ear. Oh well, it’s the only picture I’ve got. Today Ginger left myself and Getzger in charge while she’s away on a trip to Chicago with our friend Rebbie. I get my chance to go to Chicago in a couple of …

There goes September. Hiking: 4 miles (just). Kayaking trips: 0. Nights camping: 0. Hours spent at the computer working – too many to count. I cock a snoot (metaphorically, and photographically quite literally) at September. Definition: Cock a Snoot Photography: Snoot

Gary’s a lumberjack for the day (365:266) – I spent most of the day logging. Some friends are thinning out their trees, cutting the big ones into 8-9 foot logs and sending them to a local lumber mill. I volunteered to give them a hand today, so I spent my day clearing and cutting back brush, chaining logs and standing well back as the tractor dragged them up the hill.

Thursday Evening (365:265) – Today was my study day. Today it really is 100 days until the end of this project!

This week it went from a hot 94°F to a chilly 45°F. Ginger got the chance of a well earned break today and went out with our friend Rebbie. While she was gone, considering that it looks like autumn is on the way, I decided to clean the furnace’s air filter and burner ready for …
