Weight and Stuff Report – 2 May 2013

Up a bit today, which is possibly a sign of something.

I had another walk at lunchtime. I went down to the Quayside, over the Millennium Bridge, up several million steps[1] to the Sage, then along the graffiti wall, where amongst other things, I saw this interesting question:

I'm not sure, is there?

Then I walked around the block and back across the river, this time taking the High Level Bridge. The padlocks I noticed recently are multiplying, which gave me a chance to play with some manual focus macro. The X100S couldn’t manage to lock onto this lock, probably because of the strong backlight:

While I think of it, here’s another one from Tuesday’s walk in Leazes Park. I found these bare trees interesting, which led me to use Silver Efex Pro 2 to fiddle with the image a bit.

I had a bit of a GPS glitch today – a few spurious points were logged, which suggested I’d flown from Grey Street to the Pilgrim Street roundabout. I edited those out of the GPX file before adding it permanently to the Garmin site. Otherwise, Geotag Photos Pro is continuing to do a good job.
