Tracks

Image
February 20, 2024. Where the tracks cross the side road, just outside town, as seen on my daily walk. It wasn't quite as dark as depicted here but I wanted to emphasize the clouds and the afternoon sunset. Today was another full day working on my literature review; it's almost done and really is in the process of final crafting. Four days till the first spring training ball game. https://flic.kr/p/2pzk92R

Art

Image
February 19, 2024. This is a close-up of some wall art we bought at an auction a number of years ago. But mostly it's me testing how closely I can shoot using my 50mm lens. Worked from the home office today, mostly on the lit review, partially on some tech. https://flic.kr/p/2pzbEDf

Forest Snow

Image
February 18 2024. It was snowing in the forest today where we went snowshoeing, a bit more than 4 km. Not too cold but snowy and blowy. https://flic.kr/p/2pyWwk4

Woodpecker

Image
February 17, 2024. This guy worked itself into the cage and spent a long time working on the feed cylinder, enough time to allow me to take this shot with the telephoto. It could be better; I shot at an angle through the hazy window by hand, but it's still pretty nice. I had other plans for today, but there was a No Man's Sky expedition to play, and even though they're 5 weeks long, I like to finish them (and live-stream the video) in the first weekend. https://flic.kr/p/2pyMadC

Reaching for the Sun

Image
February 15, 2024. But the Sun isn't there. There's just this faint glow behind the clouds. It's cold. It's snowing this evening. And the plants are dead. It must be the middle of February. Spent the day working on my literature review, started a new No Man's Sky expedition in the evening, and added DMARC records to my email servers to email will continue to work. https://flic.kr/p/2pyrQGx

Butterflies

Image
February 14, 2024. Butterfly decorations on the front of a house in my neighbourhood. I've always liked the way people put butterflies on their houses; there's no real incentive for them to do so, but they do it anyway. Today was much more productive than the disaster that was yesterday and my literature review is finally taking shape. https://flic.kr/p/2pygwxX

Tree

Image
February 13, 2024. This is a tree at the office in the city. Seeing this tree is one of the few benefits of driving in to the city. Today was a zero-productivity day; I got my meds wrong in the morning and was off all day. Wrote a short bl;og post; that's about it. https://flic.kr/p/2py75bJ
