2019-02-07 Living with Cancer – Day 703

Today was again not a good day, but a better day. For the most part, today was a repeat of the last five days, dealing with stomach cramps, dizziness, sweating and lack of concentration. After breakfast I rested until the outside temperature was about 40F, it was 34F earlier this morning. As to my health issues, for most of the day, I had light stomach cramps and dizziness, sweating after strong activities and, a lack of concentration.

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.

2019-02-04 Living with Cancer – Day 700

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

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.

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.

2019-02-02- Nature Photography – Flowers – Rosemary

Thanks to the heavy rain over night I did not have a large choice of objects for today’s shooting. I picked a bush of Rosemary that is in a tall vase.
