| ||Last night, I noticed a mouse running across the little hallway between our bedroom and the bathroom. I alerted Mary. Not sure if I should have. She has been obsessed with it ever since.|
This morning, sister Deborah brought us tomatoes, purple shell peas and okra from the farmers' market.
For lunch, the fab five had pork chops, sweet potato, tomato and fried okra. Peach and apple appetizers. I've been reading up on HDR (high dynamic range imaging) and was eager to try it on today's lunch. Mounted the Canon S100 up on my little Slik tripod. Set the camera to HDR mode. Worked just right. I sharpened the result, using ThumbsPlus 7. The tomatoes and okra came out looking very natural I thought. The plate looked real. Perhaps, too real.
Then, for comparison, I used my previous system, Program mode, no flash, Positive Film setting. I both sharpened and lightened the result. The tomatoes and okra came out over-saturated, tending to looking kind of blurry. However, the pork chop, sweet potato and corn looked more appetizing to me, of a deeper, richer color. Don't know which pic I prefer.
After our afternoon coffees, Mary and I made a run to Walmart to buy sticky boards for the mouse.
73.2 °F, mostly cloudy. (Chapel Hill)
