I have a number of things to tell you about the previous week.
- There are some things that are important to do but should not be shared. My experiment with time-lapse table-top (60 piece Lego boat) photography is such a thing. The results are not shareable. I was pleased with my purchase of a roll of seamless paper and my DIY set-up. I learnt I need more light. Low watt tungsten bulbs are not bright enough. As well, even with the spare bed and furniture moved to the side, the spare-bedroom may not work as a studio unless I remove all the furniture. Probably not a good idea, as some other room would become unusable. mmm
- Earlier this week I returned to Glenbow Ranch to photograph a sunrise. I was standing on top of a small hill with my camera sitting on the tripod looking east. I turned my head and realized that the dawn picture was actually behind me as the snow covered Rockies glowed pink. Unfortunately, I could not reach the better vantage point before the light was lost. Instead, I went on a walk-about (see gallery below) before returning to the car. I also discovered that mule deer are named for their ears, which resemble those of a mule.
- On a personal note I was reminded of a friend who had dropped and drowned her phone in a toilet. Before using the pit-toilet at Glenbow Ranch I made sure that every zippered pocket was closed. Ah the things we think of, in between trying to say something intelligible.
