How's your day?


Recommended Posts

Meanwhile in other news....

 

I was all set to plant out Runner Beans raised from seed, plus some French Bean plants given by a neighbour. Was also planning to put the cold frame out of the way for the rest of the year and use the space to put the 'vine' tomatoes and the bush type cherry tomatoes against the warm back wall.  But.. weather forcast for strong winds and heavy rain changed all that... so they'll have to wait a bit longer.Meanwhile my Sweet Peas have been sitting planted out for three weeks and have not grown so much as a millimetre.

Here's hoping for some warmer weather eventually....:(

Lets, that looks a serious bit of kit you inherited. Not one to put in your pocket, but one for specialist photography. Had a look at the your link which was interesting. I possess a Pentax, but certainly not that one.

Think mine is only 6mp.

Din't mean them Brew, but when I scrolled down below your picture there were loads of Imgur images that all seemed American stuff. Maybe it's just on my tablet. Lovely picture by the way. Perhaps it's time I posted some more.

This is of course film as in chemical photography. Sadly it’s gone down in value as digital is king but it’s still collectible and useable if you wanted.

I would still like to use film. I've got quite a bit of 35mm in my freezer, but not sure where you can take them for d&p. There used to be loads of ads in the photography magazines, but it's been a while since I bought one. Used to like 'Practical Photography and 'What Camera Weekly'.

Thanks Rob.L, much obliged. I assume you get your negatives back and if on a flash stick I could print them at home. I also have a device for copying images from negatives and slides, (not sure what you call it).

A scanner I think Beekay.

 

I think quite a few of the Pinkfishmedia photo guys who still use film..do their own processing.

 

There are some very decent snappers on there.

This morning I realised just how well I have felt since the heart attack. This was when logging the results from my morning hour on the indoor rowing machine and bike. I have been making incremental increases in pace and duration and paying more attention to the warm ups and warm downs. Also made slight changes to diet.

Just looked through the exercise log for this year and some of the notes made each day.

Without going into detail it would seem that exercise alone is not going to stop heart attacks unless (hopefully) accompanied by a careful diet and lighter drinking.

I rowed 851km in January and weighed 83kg - a reduction of 2kg from Jan 1st. Only rowed 54km since HA but now 80kg.

For some months I had assumed that my HRM or the machine was on the blink due to my heart rate reducing instead of rising  with increased effort. This was accompanied by headaches and a feeling of no energy. I know now that it was due to the clogged artery. Certainly learnt a lot this year.

I thought summer was on its way and decided to make a detour. We had a lot of rain and was icy cold then it turned warmer and everyone was saying that this was warmer temperatures than normal. Its still warm but very windy. Unusual as we dont have a lot of windy weather, maybe for a couple of days but thats all. Now its blowing everything away. We have 3 solar globes In the courtyard as well as smaller ones stuck in the soil in the flower beds, all of them have moved. Daren't put any washing out. According to weather forcast its going to be hotter with lashing rain. Think we'll have to wait for a swim and sunbathe.
