196-2020 – Vax Begonia


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a surprisingly beautiful plant called Vax Begonia. The pot only had a few flowers when I bought it from the supermarket for only £5. I didn’t expect to have so many flowers in the end, but I can’t complain.

195-2020 – Freshly Squeezed Fruit Juice


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my breakfast, lunch and dinner for today, a freshly squeezed fruit juice. The reason I didn’t have anything else for breakfast, lunch or dinner today was because I can’t swallow, due to a condition called tonsillitis, which I developed a few days ago, apparently because I took antibiotics a few weeks ago to prevent a bladder infection.

190-2020 – Daddy Pig


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is a portrait of Daddy Pig on a black background in the Ozgo Productions Studio. This image was taken with the iPhone 11 Pro with the 55mm lens and Slow Shutter app using a torch swinging from above as a main light. In post, I cropped the image 1:1 in Lightroom and adjusted the levels a little bit. I am not very happy with the reflective surface I used as the floor and retrospectively I think I should have extended the black background and let the toy […]

189-2020 – Ideal Combi Boiler Repair


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my Ideal Combi Boiler Repair experience. The long story short, my boiler was taking a long time to make hot water and recently developed a rumble noise, usually after I used the hot water, but not exclusively. See below video. I service my boiler every year and this year the hot water issue it happened just before the service day, so my hopes were really high that will be solved. It didn’t. Instead, Jake the boiler engineer said that the Plate Head Exchanger is the […]

188-2020 – Fields of Gold

186-2020 – Football Tennis


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about Football Tennis, a sport I used to play in Romania in the 1990s. On my way back I noticed how people were enjoying a pint of beer in the newly opened pubs, under the supervision of two police officers. Too bad they are not allowed to drink while on duty – not fair.

184-2020 – A Stubborn Bird


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a stubborn bird eating from one of the feeders. I was fascinated by the perseverance and as always the reward is well deserved. The poor bird was standing on a tiny branch, just thick enough to hold its weight, plus was leaning forward and towards the bird feeder, hopping to find a treat inside the hanging pine cone. I am not a specialist, but I believe this bird is called Magpie, from the Crows birds family, one of the many British Garden Birds protected by […]

183-2020 – My Aneroid Barometer


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my aneroid barometer, which until today was hanging on my wall as decor and not used for its intended purpose-predict the weather. I just learned how to calibrate it and from now on I will try to see how accurate is compared with the main weather channels and the actual reality. I am starting to appreciate old technology. I am blown away by the simplicity and craftsmanship and unlike our today gadgets don’t require electricity to function. Next, I will try to get myself an […]

182-2020 – Great Deal


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, might be useful to you if your car is due for and MOT and Full Service, and looking for a great deal. Please note the * which basically means that most likely you will end up paying more. I paid £213 (when I booked it online) not £188 and the entire process took 2 hours not 1 hour and 30 minutes as advertised. Drop the car and wait or comeback when ready. The staff is very knowledgable and overall I had a pleasant experience. Definitely recommend the […]

181-2020 – Higher Mommy, Higher!


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about one of the few fun activities my daughter can enjoy during our daily walk around the block. As I was taking the photo Diana wouldn’t stop laughing and shouting: Higher Mommy, Higher!
