Garry picked this one because he thought the colors were special. I wanted to take a few pictures of it, but I needed to wait until the sun came around to this side of the house. It’s been rather gray for the past few days. A bit of rain, then maybe the sun will come out for a little while, then disappear again.
And I forgot the days are longer and the sun arrives later each day for the next few weeks. I did grab the camera from my office so if old sol put in an appearance, I’d be ready. The sun is only in the right position for a few minutes on a good day.
But of course, I wasn’t ready. I’d grabbed the wrong camera. And we were in the middle of dinner when I looked up, exclaimed “SUN!!” and pulled the camera out of the bag. I have three Olympus mirrorless cameras and keep a different lens on each. It was the wrong lens.
No time to say oops and get a different camera, so I shot anyhow. I got a few good ones despite everything. Wearing my computer glasses and using the wrong camera with the slower lens didn’t make it easier.
Especially wearing the wrong eyeglasses. It is hard to focus properly if you can’t focus your eyes further than 15 inches!
