2018-07-30 Recovery Day 511

Today was another good day. No issues sleeping last night. Being a week day I got up at 6:30. For breakfast I had my normal toast with jam, banana and hot chocolate. As to my pains, I still have my hip pains in both sides, the new pain that surfaced yesterday is still there. I noticed it especially when moving the right side of my body. It has spread and now is from my right hip up to the top of my shoulder. It last a minute or two, feeling like needles and pins. I will have to report it to make sure it is a passive pain, not an active cancer triggered one.

2018-07-18 Recovery Day 499

Today was a great day. After good sleep I got up and my breakfast. Pain wise I only had the discomfort of my spine/Back surgery. Being treatment day I went outside and took a few PICTURES of the sun rays peeking through trees etc. Getting back in I took my morning medication and got ready for Dean picking me up at 8:45 to drop me of at the cancer center.

BTW, as to the source of my diarrhea, my primary oncology doctor is absolutely sure it is the Pomalyst (chemo) drug. The plan is to reduce the dosage and see if that works.

Health wise, today second day after Wednesday’s all-day treatment cycle #5, started of like yesterday with no issues, no signs of dizziness or nausea in the morning.

Morning Sunrise – Week 5

Another day to leave early for San Francisco. Decided to snap a few sunrise photos with the super wide-angle lens. This one is interesting since over the years I have taken sunrise photos from this location I mused mostly my 50mm or 75mm lenses. With the 15mm focal length I actually am able to catch almost 180 degree view.

Colorful Sunrise No 3

No time this morning to visit Contra Loma or Big Break Regional Park as I had to leave for San Francisco very early. Luckily a great colorful sunrise presented an alternative for some great photos. The the time difference between the first photo and the second is about 5 minutes and about 10 minutes between the first and last.

Cloudy Sunrise

My plan for this week, not only because of the rain and fog, but also for personal reason. I will not have the time to visit the different locations as I will be traveling to San Francisco every morning and returning late at night. Therefore today’s set is from the same location as yesterday, except of fog we have a heavy cloud cover.

No Sunrise, just Fog

Another week that starts with fog, eliminating the chance for catching another colorful sunrise. It was also the start of using yet another prime lens, this time it is my Tamron SP AF 90mm lens. This set of pictures are of the same scene as during the last three weeks Day 1, Day 8 and Day 15. The sky looks blue instead of gray, that is because of the sun behind it. I also had to use a very high ISO to take these photos.

Another colorful Sunrise

Thanks to the break in our rain pattern and a very cold (29F/-2C) morning we have another colorful sunrise. This one is just to nice to pass by, specially since the weather forecast is that the next 9 days will be bringing much needed rain to our area. With all that rain being predicted we will see limited sunshine, if any at all. This will be a challenge for my landscape photography as I will have to deal with dark over-casted darker skies for the upcoming days.

Here is my first set of photos taken on the first day of the year for 2017’s Project 365. I decided to start of the year with catching the first sunrise. Normally it is more colorful, but today the weather did not cooperating. As mention in my previous posts, this week I will use only my Sony DT 35mm F/1.8 SAM lens. I used the Program mode, with a aperture setting of f/8, White Balance was set to cloudy and ISO was on automatic. I addition I used 3-shot bracketing with +/- 0.5 EV.
