Another uninteresting day with nothing much to recommend it. Windy and wet with occasional chances for the sun to burst through for a few minutes. Driving rain from the south for a change. It washes the windows if nothing else. Every time the I decided to take a walk and get some photos in the bright spells, the rain would start again. Scamp and I went to the gym instead and did a bit of exercising, but as she had a lunch appointment, we didn’t get a chance for a swim.
Did a bit of painting, but left it unfinished again. Made some lemonade scones. Simple recipe:
- 2 cups self-raising flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 150 ml double cream
- 150 ml lemonade
Makes roughly 12 scones and they are as light as a feather. Even Scamp agrees, it must be so.
Today’s photo is physalis 1 . It was produced using a combination of different technologies. The camera was mounted on a tripod, an old Bilora that I bought second hand for a couple of quid in a house clearing about forty years ago. The other technology was the brand new Pixel remote trigger. Old and new technologies managed to produce a good image when used together. Hoping for good weather tomorrow, but more snow forecast. We’ll see.
- Just keep repeating “Physalis, Physalis, Physalis”. Then when someone asks you what they are, you don’t blurt out “SYPHILIS!” as someone I was sitting next to at a restaurant did. A conversation stopper. ↩
