Week 4 – 2017 another slow week

Week 4 – 2017 

Week 4 was pretty much the same as last week. Work, pottering around the house and not much else.

On Sunday son and DIL  popped in with the boys. Theo immediately went to the under stairs cupboard to get the garage and cars out and we hardly heard a peep out him.
They both had Christmas presents that our friends had for them. A little plane for Theo who loved zooming it round shouting ‘whee’. Ashley had 2 small (wilko) lego cars to assemble. Although they are for his age group he wasn’t able to build them alone so I helped,

Monday/Tuesday we had plans to go to Cardiff but the weather wasn’t good and it was too cold for Hubby.

No cinema either, as again nothing we fancied. There’s a few new films coming next week. We spent a few afternoons watching Walking Dead and have got to the end of Season 6. Good story and characters but pretty gruesome at times!


This week it’s Shutter practice.  Controlling blur, using the shutter speed to get one photo in focus using a fast shutter and one photo of blur using a slow shutter.

  • Ashley with spooky torch light. 
  • Theo – car in hand! 
  • Spinning 2p – 1/13 – slow shutter – blur the subject
  • Spinning 2p – 1/200 – fast sutter – freeze subject

That’s it for this week.

    I really want to practice using my camera settings more and you look like you’re doing really well!

    I’m enjoying seeing your camera practice shots – I need to do my AYWMC homework too.

    I know the feeling on quiet boring weeks, the very reason why I was not sure about carrying on with another year.
    Nice that he knows where the toys are and plays away happily with them.
    Had wondered what I could use that was moving, thanks for the idea, will give it a go.

    Clever with the pennies! I used my friend twirling an umbrella for this exercise in my college class last term which was quite effective too #365
