Time to decide what photograph I’ll have as my Yule card.
Back again and the weather is much the same as last weekend, brighter though because the clouds are much thinner. They said we would get fog most part of the day but seen as fog it is a disappointment, more like thicker haze I think. Well, at least it isn’t raining yet 🙂 The week here at home has been quite uneventful, mostly watching tv and reading but we have started using the painting box and machine the company bought for almost 1,5 years ago 🙂
We were four people looking like fools when the man explained how we should do when cleaning the machine and how to use it while painting 🙂 🙂 🙂 The one teaching us is probably really good in knowing the machine but he was totally useless when it came to explaining 🙂 🙂 🙂 The one getting it first of us four was my former apprentice oddly enough because he had problems understanding the old machine that was very easy to understand 🙂 He too is rather useless when it comes to explaining 🙂 🙂 🙂 But I finally understood how it works yesterday when I was the only painter at work. It’s always best to use the try and error method to be honest, I tried and it erred many times before I got it. I do hope I’ll remember what I did now on Monday morning 🙂
From now on I must concentrate to reduce the amount of powder-paint we use, at the moment we’re using more with the new machine than we did with the old one 🙂 🙂 🙂 The purpose with the new machine is to use less powder after all 🙂 🙂 🙂
It’s a bit strange really, the tele-photo lens I got with the latest camera doesn’t work on auto focus on my best camera but it works perfect with the camera it came with?! Both camera’s are Nikon and both have auto focus but it just doesn’t work on auto focus on my Nikon D3000 ? I’ve tried different settings but still it refuses to do what I want it to 🙂 Well no big problems really, I’ll just focus manually instead but it is a bit strange. I didn’t use that lens this morning but I did use the other lens that followed the latest camera. I have to say that it’s much better than the original lens for my best camera.
We’ve gotten a new bunch of hunters here since my neighbor sold and moved. The only interest they have is to shoot anything that moves it seems so we have very few deers left now. I’ve seen tracks from some out by the bog but I’ve only seen the two that walks close to our cottages. I’m pretty sure Doris the doe still is around because she walks mostly on the property where the “old” guys still hunt. They still believe in wildlife management. The new bunch simply hires the grounds for hunting and that’s it, to bad that they are allowed to.
I have a fire in the stove and a cup of coffee by my side. Today I must decide on what photograph I’ll use as Yule card this year. I have three that I’ll decide between, they are a bit grainy but I like them anyway. The problem is that one never knows how they’ll look after transferred from my computer to the photo company’s computer and then transferred to paper. So I’ll hold my thumbs and cross my fingers so that it’ll work out fine 🙂
Have a great day!
