Bashed, Bruised, and Fragile

16-03-22

Shunter/Switcher, Olympus E400, from the archive.

Bashed, bruised, and fragile, that’s how I feel at the moment. My lovely cat Fleur isn’t very well at all , she’s had steroid injections but I’m not sure she will make it, this seems to have taken it’s toll on my immune system as my flu/chest infection has come back with a vengeance. Managed to drag myself out of the house today for the weekly supermarket shop, and as a precaution went for a Covid test. I’m lucky to have friends that have or have had cats and understand how I’m feeling.

New (secondhand) Lens

29-03-19

I got a new lens for my old Olympus E620 digital camera today, a 35mm f3.5 Zuiko Macro at a very good price from a dealer. It arrived midday today so I took a few snaps with it to check it was working as it should, the sun was out and it was warm.

The Olympus images seem to convert well to Black and White.

I’m pleased with the lens and looking forward to getting out and about with it, focusing on a particular point can be a bit tricky but that’s down to me rather than the lens.

Cats, Cats & More Cats (update)

I called round to my neighbour this morning with two boxes of kitten food. I took my phone so I could get some pictures of the lovely cats.

They all look well and are putting on weight. Apparently there’s another family of cats across the road !

Help With The Gardening ?

When I returned home I decided to start pruning the holly tree, within minutes my two helpers were supervising my efforts.
