    Always glad to be on the third stretch. I like the challenge to spend some time each day on photography, but I seem to automatically resist obligations. Soldiering on though....

    Starting to think it might be possible to plan ahead with what I'm going to shoot now there's less days to go.

    I've decided I definitely want more pancake lenses for the EM5 II. I'm good with 2.8 but I want better quality. Pentax was a master of this kind of lens.

    No struggle. If I find something, great. If I don't, no worries. :coffee-79: This morning, from the breakfast table, we noticed the little snow caps on the deck posts, doing the slow melt. Step out the door, take 4 or 5 shots at different settings, and pick the best one, and finished! :2thumbs:

    Tonight the challenge really felt like a struggle. Left the office at 9:30pm after yet another very long day of work. Had an idea of the shot I wanted to take tonight but everything conspired against it. First, it was raining. Then, I drove around for a bit until I found a suitable parking space. Finally, while I was setting up my tripod, a car parked right in front of the scene I wanted to photograph, completely ruining the shot. To add insult to injury, the car was illegally parked since it was a no-parking zone. I closed up my tripod, went back to my car, and drove around until I found another shot.

    Fortunately, there are only six more days of night shots for me. The two weekends will be a breeze. I'm starting to think I will make it through the 31 days.

    I'm finding myself doing/ preparing for shots I've done before. The mental battery's running out. Really need to get some fresh inspiration for new shots in this final period.

    I'm still in. Will probably be a delay in posting, not in shooting.

    There's a high probability of snow pictures from me for the next few days.

    I'll catch up with posting tomorrow - I'm just now resurfacing after two insanely overloaded days, but am too knackered to do any post processing (actually have some trouble focusing on the screen at the moment). But I'm still in, haven't missed a day's shooting yet. More on that tomorrow as well ...

    Good thing the EM-5 has IS. Shivering cold, with the old OM50 on, could not hold perfectly still. Over exposed the snow. Excuses! :boohoo:

    I'm still in, but worried about the very busy work week ahead.
    Still, there would be no skiing for me next week anyway, not on snow nor on water. Just plane boring season right now.
