On the 1st April 2012 I decided to publish a picture taken on every day for a year. The day of Fools (1st April) seemed like a good time to start! I succeeded in the challenge (WooHoo!) but thought I would take the next year or so to decide whether to stop or not :) I managed four years and almost got as far as five before the nerve damage in my hands made handling the cameras too frustrating. Progress is slow, but shutter clicks are happening again ....
While walking the dog this morning, I saw a post covered in ivy. The low sun and a touch of frosty air had almost desaturated the image of all colours. I gave it an extra helping hand as it looked better still in black and white.
The macro lens was still on the camera, so I captured some more abstract images of the kitchen utensils. The sieve has multiple layers so that it can strain out fine particles, but have a nice strong structure too.
The multiple layers mean it is a bugger to wash though.
We went Japanese today. There were lots of different colours and the selection was stunning. I have not got the hang of dipping each chunk in the sauce without it falling apart though... Reminds me of losing half a biscuit in my mug of tea.
There were lots of stalls at the food emporium today which had a 'fish' element to them. This stall in particular had some very appetising tuna. The pieces on display had at least been cooked around the edges.
Tonight we had a good meal out with a Korean barbeque. The beef was very tasty (especially when eaten with a little red bean paste and a hunk of Kimchi). The roasted garlic cloves have a life of their own, and will repel vampires at 40 paces :)
