No change today, which is amusingly random.
I seem to have a slight case of the lurgy. Not sure if it’s just a cold, or some other entertaining viral wossname, but I felt distinctly rough and oddly hot this morning. Still not quite right, but not too bad now…
Something arrived today which let me do something I’ve been waiting a few weeks to do. I’ve got the 60mm macro lens for my Fujifilm X-E1, and some reading on forums persuaded me to get a moderately cheap close-up add-on lens. This attaches to the front of a lens and allows much closer focus. More details of that in another post, when I find a suitably sized tuit. Anyway, to use it with the 60mm lens requires a step-up ring (a screw-in adaptor thingy) of a particular size that seemed to be in short supply. After much searching, I found a US-based supplier selling such a ring at a quite reasonable price, and I ordered it. I’ve done a few hand-held test shots in not very good light, but I think it’s got potential for some interesting photos.
Here’s a close view of a geode:

Readers with long memories might recall an earlier photo of this, which I posted a few years ago.
And this is purely a demonstration of just how close we’re getting:

 Ooooh, the excitement.
