Some nice pix there.
I've sort of ened up watching a lot of vids on photography, video and gear this last week,
It started with me deciding to get my first smartphone, ever. True story.
Sort of a simple reason,. Not the most important thing how things have been. At this point though my small old iPad is broken beyond repair, cameras aren't working and it's time to get stuck in this before I'm too outdated.
Practice tool, camera and just a way to get used to the tech everyone but me is and have been using for a long time.
I'll just trick it out with a few gadgets, so it can do everything I want. Mainly a mic for both drum recording and other stuff, and the Polarpro LifeChaser kit. Hopefully, I'll be able to finally unlock my old GoPro when I get something new to control it with. Maybe I'll finally do a drum cover, if I have nothing better to do.
Just my old broken iPad 3 Mini with less than half the screen working at this point. Something like this from the top of the mountain in the other photo doesn't look too bad with the general quality required for social media, but plenty of photos didn't work out that well, especially later in the day and wouldn't hold up for any other use.
Regardless of what's happened I have to get into some of my other interests again. I'll just let the drums wait and start buying new mics one by one or something, so it gets done. DM20s and and a pair of OC818s seem like a safe bet. I'll get my bow soon and I'll continue spendng more time outdoors. Also moved all my louder music gear to the shed, so it'll see some more use and I'll try recording a bit of guitar, too. Afriad my laptop won't be able to handle the plans I've always had, so will have to still hold off on that. If it seems like the thing to do I'll get some help to build a dedicated desktop. Doesn't need much but speed and power as I guess my interface does the sound, I couldn't care less about certain things and will be only for recording, mixing and very simple video editing.
Been growing some herbs, but I was a bit late this year with the ones I started from seed. At least there's a lot of knowledge aquired for next season. Focus will be:
1) Typical well known cookng herbs. Mine taste better, though. The dill I have growing outside, there's no comparison.
2) Every type of basil I can find.
3) Stuff that helps keep the snails away as the newly arriwed brown ones are completely taking over.
4) Viking age type crops.
I've even ordered some mushroom spawn, but it's just a couple of easy types to give it a try that I'll be growing on pellets.
Sorry for your loss Jeppe. Seems you've been going through a lot of things lately both healthwise and now this. My mom is still here and living with us, but he dementia is extreme at this point and going through NAS for several years I've along with everything else missed out on the last years she was more present.
