Let’s see if anyone can gues what today’s “good morning” language is.
Yesterday I saw blue skies as we were leaving for the shopping tour. I thought I would make a photo, before they disappear. Today is grey in grey and looks like rain, although it is very cold. We had a ground frost when I looked out this morning. Anyhow who cares. It is Saturday and one of my better Saturdays. There is no shopping to do, just a few bits and pieces and Mr. Swiss takes a tour in any case in town. There is no ironing to do, all done and cooking is also no big deal. Looks like it might be a boring morning, although when you have a camera things are never boring.
Yesterday I discovered something interesting. When I want a quick photo on my blog I usually use my mobile phone photo app in Flickr and it does a direct upload and I can insert it on my blog in a couple of minutes. However, telephone photos are limited – no great closeups without pixels interefereing. Mr.Swiss said I should have a look in the Applekiste. I do not know what this is called in english, as I am only interested in the Swiss connection, something like Apple box, but it is where Apple have all sorts of interesting accessories for phones and pads etc. I found a Universal Smartphone aluminium camera clip telescopic objective with 12x zoom and miniature tripod for the mobile telephone photos of detailed closeups. You can just attach it your your smartphone. Whether it is any good or not I do not know. Of course I have a telescopic lens and all the gear for my Nikon camera, but I usually only upload once a day from my camera. If this zoom lens is any good, it means I can do detailed closeups and upload straight away onto Flickr. I am thinking about it. The Applekiste tells me they have only one available, but it is still worth a try. The price is fairly reasonable, 50 Swiss francs and no charge for despatch. It also comes with a bag to carry it, although I would only need it for home use. I take my other camera when I am on a travelling camera quest.
And now to move on, although really no stress. All I have to do is to shift my body and grasp the vacuum cleaner.
I will leave you with a photo of a sparrow that I took yesterday, munching on some goodies hangin on the bush in front of my kitchen window.
