Thursday 28 June 2012: Today's lesson in photography...
853/365: ... when you're processing your photos, make sure you don't have the brightness way down on your screen and end up over-lightening the image you're working on.
Or maybe, leave it down and then realise that any image you've touched that day, you've wrecked.
Tum te tum te tum!
Anyway, today was yet another working day. Wrote some stuff. Did some talking. Did some sorting out of things. Busy generally.
But that really wasn't dramatic. What *was* dramatic was the weather. It started off kinda grey at about half past five this morning. By 6am it was doing stair-rods of rain. Like tropical rain. Impressive bouncing-off-the-ground-as-fast-as-it-hits rain. And then, within 10 minutes. Nothing. When I got to Sheffield not long before 8... it was the same grey. And then torrential rain. This time with thunder and lightening thrown in for good measure.
I know some areas of the country have had it really really badly. For us, it was dramatic but not really threatening especially. And then... by the time I went home (taking well over two hours to do the drive)... the sky was blue with big fluffy white clouds. Like a petulant toddler who's pretending they've done nothing wrong when there's flour spilled all over the floor... the weather decided it would play nice and we closed out the day by having dinner outside.
And that... my little blip audience... was that...
