Will Be Done

Monday. I did stay up and watch the Elementary episode last night coming off a good processing photographs session, the energy holding up well. There'd been an hour or so of “down time” required after getting back from the Faire, but the energy kicked in with good results. Awakened just before six, though. Still, feeling pretty good, no complaints, on to walk to breakfast (plain waffle with sliced fruit) and back on an overcast, but not overly cool morning.

The rest of the day to finish the Faire photographs and maybe take another set of pictures at Latham Square. And find whatever the problem is with the camera and yesterday's out of focus performance. I've done the usual clean the contacts and such by the book, but need to go further and return the camera for repairs if it proves necessary. Kicking myself for letting this happen.

Kicking yourself?

Well, not too hard. We are retired and find we break more easily.

Later. Well, another ocular migraine that lasted well over an hour starting this mid-morning, an intense one brought on by I don't know what. Hard to blame it on the plain waffle with fruit. If they start up again I'll go back to the pill I was forced to drop when the change in health insurance coverage forced me to change doctors, the new one not quite getting (was my feeling) exactly what the old one had prescribed it for. Hmm. Two o'clock in the afternoon, much of the day already gone.

Evening. The rest of the afternoon and well into the evening spent finishing the photographs and putting together two sections for the web. I've posted them, but I'm thinking of going back to see if I can do a better job with the lighting in both Lightroom and Photoshop. Which is good, get my act together, up the game and all that. No time to analyze the auto-focus problem, but tomorrow is clear and it will be done.

You sure?

It will be done!
