The featured photo today is of the bandstand at Sefton Park, Liverpool. I chose this because it cheered me up to look at it. It brought back happy memories of the morning last year that I spent at that lovely park.
I took the photo with my Pentax K-1 camera using a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. The settings were ISO 100, f/8 aperture, 1/60 seconds at 30mm focal length.
After I wrote yesterday’s post, my son emailed, warning me to take care with what may be a dodgy IEC kettle lead because it has no transformer. He knows about these things, so I’ll get a new lead tomorrow and hope that it’s the lead rather than the monitor’s socket connection that’s at fault. Thank you, Duncan for your advice.
As far as The New Tangled Tango is concerned, I’m up to almost 6,000 words now after a blaze of writing. So, another chapter written. About my use of the word chapter – many, if not most, authors seem to write chapters each of 4000 words or more. My chapters are more like scenes of a play: if the action moves somewhere else I start a new scene/chapter. Some barely need one side of A4. Today’s was two and a half sides. Maybe I’m not milking the detail enough. Anyway, my faith character has bitten the bullet. He’s had a hard day back at school following the Easter break – Year 9 pupils choosing options; Mock GCSE examinations – poor man! Having returned home, and facing an evening of paperwork, after a quick meal he phones the Vicar and then his friend, the churchwarden, to arrange meetings later in the week at which he will disclose his faith crisis.
Having got so far today, I realise that tomorrow (Tuesday in the story), the group will be meeting for their next evening of sequence dancing. I have no idea yet what will happen there. Perhaps a good night’s sleep will bring inspiration. I’ll let you know how I get on.
