Keep It Simple, Stupid

I had this in mind as I was driving to the beach this morning... take simple but well thought out photos with nothing crazy going on. Well, that didn't last long! I looked through IG as it was still really dark outside. I saw another photogs stream and got inspired. I took out my Canon flash and started experimenting with the splashes caused by the quick moving waves hitting the rocks. Almost got swallowed whole a couple of times from the sets emerging from the deep darkness. I think this technique is going to be a work in progress... didn't quite nail what I had in mind.

As the sun rose above the cloude horizon it was over to the pool for a couple of shots, a swim and a coffee from G'day Bronte. That sure went down a treat :-) Did I hear you ask "did my shots get any simpler?" No. As you can see I was in the firing line poolside with some of these high splashing waves. I somehow managed to keep the camera fairly dry but I couldn't say the same for myself.

Back at home I was helping clean up; I got the mower out and started to cut the grass. After almost half the yard the engine light flickered and then conked out. Not a problem, just tip some more in then then pull the rip cord to fire it up. SNAP! It ripped in half - just my luck! A twenty minute job was now turning much longer, and that was if I could even fix it (with my engineering skills that was very unlikely). KISS was definitely happening now! I pulled off the ignition cover (insert correct name!?) and tinkered around for a good while, buggered it countless times and then tried to reassemble it every which way. I really should have paid more attention to the details when taking it apart. It took forever and it still wasn't working!! Only persistence and advice from Mechanic Google was the only thing saved me :-) Moral of the story. KISS - look before doing.

Maybe tomorrow I should aim to have a day filled with chaos. Maybe it might work in reverse like it did today~ 

Have a great night, hope the Easter Bunny is kind to you.
