A Saturday that felt like Sunday all day

Saturday, 13 February 2021

The bonus of having a Saturday feel like Sunday all day is I feel like I gained a day, what with tomorrow actually being Sunday. Weird, I know, but what can I say?

Yesterday I wrote about a change of scenery. In addition to that, I also changed my camera lens… to shake things up a little.

Tamron 18-270mm. This is a lens I haven’t had out for some time. It was a dream lens I had posted on my vision board, which I later purchased second hand. I was over the moon to have it but, after looking at vacation photos on my computer monitor, I noticed the images were not sharp. Not sharp enough for me…I’m pretty picky. So I took the lens out of my bag and put it on the shelf, and didn’t look back.

Until yesterday. I thought I’d give it another go. I took a bunch of landscape photos yesterday that look decent on my phone. I have yet to open them on my computer. Today I took a couple of the frost faeries and a bunch of my niece’s dog, Wall-E. Again, they look decent on my phone. I’ll check them out tomorrow and see how they look on the monitor and, better yet, print a few!

I must say, regardless of the quality, it’s fun shooting with a different lens, trying different things, angles, settings, focal lengths.

It’s as good as a rest!

Sunshine is good for the soul

Saturday, 30 January 2021

I woke up this morning, glanced outside, saw a sky of white, turned back, snuggled back in to bed. I was tired and blah. Fast forward several hours to a bright blue sky and sunshine and I felt like skipping and singing.

How about a couple Frost Faerie pictures:

Don’t be sad it’s over…

…be happy it happened.

That’s a pep talk I’m giving myself this evening, psyching myself up for an early rise and ‘back at it’ attitude for tomorrow. I’m grateful to have a job I really enjoy, even more grateful I’m able to telework. I’m just kind of fond of weekends and have a hard time letting them go.

This afternoon I found myself browsing Ancestry.ca and Newspapers.com updating my family tree. I took a break to make a marinade for tonight’s dinner, my ancestors heavy on my mind, when I looked out the kitchen window. A bald 🦅 eagle flew by. I’m telling you, it never gets old!
