I re-enabled sound effects on our camera so we would know whether or not it was still taking pictures. It was actually mildly annoying. I know that was originally done to make digital electronic cameras seem more like the mechanical … Continue reading
The Wife and I have both lost weight this summer. It wasn’t a goal that we set. We’ve just been a bit more active than in past years. Plus, I don’t eat as much junk food during the day at … Continue reading
Our camera operated normally this week so we had a good selection of pictures to choose from. That shouldn’t be noteworthy; but, with all the problems we’ve been having recently, it was nice for to have no issues. I was … Continue reading
Our camera died again after just two photos! This time, I restarted it in movie mode and, thankfully, it operated normally for the remainder of our photo session. Its old, especially for consumer electronics. We would have replaced it long ago if we didn’t use our smartphones for most photographs and videos. It’s unusual for us to have such outdated electronics. So, it’s doubly annoying.
Our camera stopped taking pictures in the middle of a photo session. So, once again we have fewer pictured than planned. For some reason, the dial does not stay in the selected mode and flickers into an adjacent mode which stops the interval shot operation. We know it’s old and needs replacing; but, it’s still frustrating.
Here is a picture showing how much sun The Wife has gotten this summer and especially this past weekend. It’s either been cool and rainy or hot and sunny with no in between. Unlike past Augusts I’ve mostly needed to cut the grass every weekend. The rain is good for the yard. Even if it is somewhat unusual. (I will not be cutting the grass twice a week like my next-door neighbor.)
It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that summer had just started and we were enjoying the long days; but, sadly, it’s become apparent that summer is definitely starting to wane. The evenings are cooler and sunset is 45-minutes earlier than it used to be. We still have plenty of time to have a good row. But, its usually getting dark by the time we are home. It’s been a great summer that has zoomed by all too quickly.
Now that we have a new air conditioner, the hot, humid August weather that we have is a lot less stressful. I always used to worry about whether the AC was going to survive the heat or if we would … Continue reading
Our camera died after only a handful of photos. I restarted it after a while but we did not get as many pictures as we would like. Unreliable equipment is annoying. Especially when it’s something simple like interval shots. When I set it up the second time, there were no issues. Anyway, here is a cute picture from the first group.
We are doing another movie while we can. Hopefully the bed isn’t too loud yet. The movie is higher resolution and slightly longer than what we typically post so the .MP4 file is big. It has been many, many years; but I still remember the days when we couldn’t post such a large file.
