The Old Forge (Tuesday 24th March 2020)

We are going to have new ways to occupy ourselves to get through the next few weeks, it seems. I will be settling in different rooms of the Old Forge to do what I am doing in the hope of fresh perspectives, for one thing.
The other day I blipped an iPad photo and this led me to think that I had never used the camera on my old iPhone, so I used it to photograph the emerging camellia flowers in the front yard.
Taking the photos was easy; transferring them to my PC for processing was nigh on impossible. The iPhone was almost full and was telling me to delete apps, e-mails to myself wouldn't send because the files were apparently too large, other options failed because of passwords and log-ins and because the phone was trying to flout me. Apparently the pictures were backed up to the iCloud but I haven't tried to download from there before and don't yet know how. Finally I installed an i-Flash gadget that let me copy them to an SD card, once I'd installed yet another app. So that's one way of filling a morning.
I also took a picture with my K-x and a kit lens as back-up, from the other side of the camellia, where it caught the sun (see Extra).

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Molly Sarlé - Gypsy (2020)
This is a new version of the Fleetwood Mac 1982 single that was drawn from their album Mirage. Bandcamp tell us that Molly Sarlé is from Durham in South Carolina: "From the cliffs of Big Sur to the North Carolina backwoods - Molly Sarlé brings open-hearted, unflinching songwriting perfect for late-night karaoke comedowns, plaintive morning walks, and conjuring the spirit world. West Coast incantations with a warm, Appalachian glow." She based her version on the 1979 solo demo by Stevie Nicks, who wrote it, and it comes from Aquarium Drunkard's Lagniappe Session  EP from February 2020, with a lovely picture of a cat on the cover.

One Year Ago:
