When I look at my new shed, I think it could use some green paint on the wood in the front.
I looked at what I had in canned spray paint and I didn’t have any green, but I had lots of this color, so that’s what it got. I can always go over it with green, but so far, this is doing the job.
Then I worked on cleaning the garage up a bit. I didn’t get very far, but I did make some plans on where things should go.
The new spring I’ve been working on needed the dirt from the slide moved to clean it up, so I rode on up there to clean this up which means shoveling it onto the road to get it out of the way. It hasn’t slid any more so I’m hoping it’s done sliding.
I’d move dirt and sit in my chair and then move some more. I almost have it in this photo.
Any time I find rocks while digging I put them aside for use later during the spring tapping process. I’ll likely have to haul some more of them to this spot from somewhere else to complete the job.
I got all the dirt moved and the spring water exposed where it is coming out of the hill.
By this time I was good and tired out so decided that will do for one day, so went on home.
I was sitting around the yard in the evening when I heard this male quail call as they moved through the yard, eating as they went.
It turned out there where two pair of them. I was wondering how this chicken would get along with them? They left each other alone as the quail moved on out of the yard to go feed somewhere else, I suspect.
A Sony AX33 4K, a video camera that takes stills too. What am I doing with that? I take pictures from my Kayak a lot. I found I was missing interesting shots, because my pic was being processed in my camera, before it would let me take another pic. Since I like to take what I call action stills, I bought this camera to take videos, that I could make stills out of, but, as a bonus, this camera also came with buttons to just take stills and that's what I mostly do, unless something is real interesting or too far away for my still zooms. My digilat zoom setting for video goes to two hundred x, and sometimes I need that, but usually, I only use the 10x lens zoom. Because this camera is HD and 4K, the quality has to be real good and it has a lot of stabilizers on it which really helps out a lot for taking pics on the water.
The other thing it has that is a must is a view finder and I had to buy Sony's top of the line cam to get it. This is a must for taking pics on the water, as you must hold the camera as still as posible and putting that eye piece to the eye forms a tripod with your arms that helps a lot. The eye piece is also a must as it works way better than a LED screen to see what you are taking a picture of in the daylight as the LED screens wash out easily in sunlight.
I also have another video camera, a Canon VIXIA G30. I use them both to mostly take stills. The Sony takes higher resolution stills than the G30. That was a bit of a disappointment as I bought the G30 to replace an older camera I dunked in the river, but then had to buy the Sony to get higher still picture resolution that the G30 was lacking.
