2019-02-06 Living with Cancer – Day 702

Today was again not a good day. For the most part, today was a repeat of the last four days, dealing with stomach cramps, dizziness, sweating and lack of concentration. After getting dressed and making the bed I broke out in sweat. I went downstairs to have breakfast @ 8:30. Shortly after I had strong stomach cramps and some dizziness. They lasted for about 45 minutes. Finally a break???

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.

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 direction for shooting.
