Weight and Stuff Report – 9 January 2013

Update: that’s the second time I’ve managed to post one of these without a title. Brain going, etc…

Down this evening, which may be related to some activity.

I walked as far as Gateshead this morning, then got the Metro to Central, as I needed to collect some tickets from the magic machine[1]. I walked to the office from there, which is a moderate distance. Here’s what Garmin made of it (the straight line being the Metro bit):

At lunchtime, I had a bit of a wander with the Canon 5D Mark III and the Holga DSLR Wheel thingy.  I tested all the options on both wheels, and got some moderately pleasing pictures, including this multiple clock:

Got the time?

And this starburst effect has a certain something:

I haven’t done any significant processing on these – that would be a bit silly, really. Looking at the serious vignettes here, it looks like the toy would be more suited to a camera with a smaller sensor, but i still like the low-fi grungy sort of look. Even if it is a very silly thing to do with a high-end full-frame DSLR.

I remembered to start the Garmin app again just before I began taking photographs, so here’s the evidence of that:

And finally, in a surprise development, I was persuaded to walk home. It was good practice for my new shoes, I suppose..

Can this possibly continue?

[1] Not for me this time. I won’t be travelling for a few weeks at least…
