Week 5 – 2017 1day12pics

Week 5 – 2017 resulted in a week off work due to another dose of illness. A quick visit to see son and the boys and completing #1day12pics

Sunday / Monday not very much going on. Had a chat to the Son in Oz. They’ve settled well in their new apartment. Hopefully they won’t get any problems with misbehaving neighbours like they did at the previous apartment.

Tuesday – Cinema for the first time in 4 weeks to see Hacksaw Ridge. This is based on the true story of Desmond Doss who was a medic in WW2. The thing that marked him out was that he was a conscientious objector and refused to carry or shoot a weapon. He went on to serve as a medic, entering the field of battle unarmed but managed to save many lives even when the rest of his battalion had retreated.
It’s an amazing film and Andrew Garfield is brilliant, no wonder he’s been nominated for an Oscar. (Although I still think Casey Affleck should win it).

Tuesday evening I started to get an awful upset tummy again. What the heck!! Twice in a month! I was up most of the night and had to ring in sick and was told I’d have to have friday off too as I have to be clear for 48 hours.
I had medication left from last time and it stopped by Wednesday lunchtime. A visit to the GP will be needed to find out what is causing this!

Wednesday/Thursday – Recovering at home, no work and no shopping. Also meant missing oldest son’s birthday.

Friday – enforced day off but was determined on going out. Went food shopping and then popped in to see son and give him his birthday card. Ashley was sent home from school after complaining he had a bad throat..nothing much wrong when we were there!! Theo was fast asleep so missed giving us a hug!

Saturday – #1day12pics day. First Saturday of the month and the aim is to take one pic an hour (or thereabouts!) for 12 hours. I actually managed it this month!
Started with a few at home followed by a few out and about and ended early evening.

Week 5, 2017, soosie wales

AYWMC homework

This week it’s all about ISO and how it affects the quality of the image.
The homework was to do the aperture or shutter example again but using a low ISO and a high ISO. The high ISO creates ‘noise’ which spoils an image when viewed at a larger size.

week 5, ISO, AYWMC, soosie wales

Top is ISO 100 and bottom is ISO 25600. You can see a vast difference!

That’s it for this week.

  1. Mary @ Over 40 and a Mum to One

    Totally forgot about the 1 day 12 pics thing, Saturday’s are never a good day for me. I’ve heard of that film, need to catch it somewhere. Hope you are back to normal now #365

  2. tracey at Mummyshire

    Hope you’re back on your feet and feeling much better. There have been lots of bugs about.
    I had read about the movie Hacksaw Ridge – I should keep a note of movies that people recommend as when it comes to finding something to watch I can never remember!
    Istruggle with Project 365 so I admire your stamina to do 1in12!

    I always forget about 1day12pics. I think I’ve only managed it 3 times in the last 3 years!

  4. Elaine Livingstone

    I managed to join in #1day12pics on the right day this time with being off last weekend.
    That cold has been lingering far to long with people, and yes coming back when you thought you had rid.

  5. Erica Price

    That film sounds good – I’d like to see that. Hope the drs get to the bottom of the problem for you.
