Well, I’ve been absent for a while for a number of reasons. First, my hard drive failed and it took a while to get it replaced. Kudos to Western Digital for being prompt and honest with the warranty replacement. I’ve not got all my fotos back alive and am ready to make new ones. But you probably already knew that.
Assuming #1 is resolved. I had a situation where the vitreous in one eye detached and tore the retina. In order to avoid a retinal detachment, I had a laser procedure last week wherein the doc basically spot welded the retina back in place. That should avoid any nasty follow-up pathology. The floaters will always be there, but the black dots that cut the light hitting my retina should dissolve. Apparently they’re red corpuscles.
So today, after following doctor’s orders and not reading or working on the computer, I got the camera out. Spent some time calibrating my lenses (one was off in its focus) and taking a few fotos of the local flora and fauna. Mostly the flora.
I wasn’t totally happy with my macro lens’ focus, but now I think I’ve got a good adjustment set up and I think this image of a little yellow flower should show that. My landlord’s grandson got sick of looking at the patch of dirt in front of my house and went crazy sowing flower seeds. It has taken since June, but I’m finally getting a couple blossoms here and there.
