Day 58

Today it was raining when I woke up around 13.00. That sucks because I had already picked the direction and road I wanted to jaunt down and even lined up an errand to do along the way. It’s not like this was just a sprinkle or intermittent rain either, just drizzle all during the day light hours when any enjoyment of one’s day off might have been truly practical. Of course, at night, it stopped raining.

Oh well, lots of time to come still. Today I found out that I have a Tuesday off coming in May for some reason. That will give me two days off in a row in the middle of the week. As long as it doesn’t rain both days, I think I can find a way to be happy.

I only took a picture of my finger today, just for record keeping purposes and because the scab had almost fallen off. It came off a little later. Looking at the skin, it’s still healing and the fingerprint hasn’t entirely come back in. The finger still feels funny when I touch it, so the nerves are still growing in as well. When I cut it off, I figured it would be at least a month before this happened. Good guestimationing.

Since there are no new shots for today, I took the images I processed from last night and included them here.

The Daily Bullet

This is another shot from last week. Both the color and b+w versions I generated were subpar and weren’t very strong. But this is what the Daily Bullet is all about, manipulating and salvaging weaker shots with filters. I think it turned out pretty good.

Daily Report

I didn’t sleep last night. I struggled to write or create a script that would grab an .mp3 from a folder, open it, insert markers in pre-determined places, split the audio file into eleven segments based on those
