2019-02-11 Living with Cancer – Day 707

Today was a bad day. For the most part of today, I had to deal with the same problems I had yesterday, dizziness and stomach issues. Also like yesterday, in addition after walking, I had to deal with the pain of my stiff neck. Resting was the best medicine for getting the various problem areas under control.

2019-02-06- Nature Photography – Succulents – String-of-pearls

Another day without rain, but instead we have very low temperatures, 33F in the morning. Today I selected to take photos of our String-of-pearls, a Succulent.

As before, I used the Auto+, Program, and Aperture Modes for each set with four different f-stops, focal lengths and, two directions. This gives me enough photos to figure out which combination of settings does what and which to use in the future.

2019-02-05 Living with Cancer – Day 701

Today was not a good day. For the most part, today was a repeat of the last three days, dealing with stomach cramps, dizziness, sweating and lack of concentration. Like yesterday, I had a hard time doing anything because of the lack of energy. I dozed off many times, which did not help to get things done. Hopefully, soon there will be a better day.

The rain is gone, for now, instead, we have very low temperatures, 36F in the morning. Today I selected to take photos of the other Amaryllis we have. This one has no bulbs, only leaves, which is rare.

2019-02-04- Nature Photography – Flowers – Amaryllis

With all that rain today I selected to take photos of the Amaryllis that has not opened yet. The plant is currently in a pot which allowed me to move it to stay dry.

As before, I used the Auto+, Program, and Aperture Modes for each set with four different f-stops and focal lengths. This gives me enough photos to figure out which combination of settings does what and which to use in the future. Today I used only one directions for shooting.

2019-02-03- Nature Photography – Flowers – Camellia

Thanks to the break in the rain we had I was able to finally take pictures of our Camellia. Called the Queen of the winter flowers, Camellias are attractive evergreen shrubs that bloom for weeks from fall to spring, when the rest of the garden offers little.

As before, I used the Auto+, Program, and Aperture Modes for each set with four different f-stops and focal lengths. This gives me enough photos to figure out which combination of settings does what and which to use in the future. Today I used two different directions for shooting.
