That's the trouble with my brain, it will keep on thinking. Give it a problem to solve and it's off tramping through endless permutations until it finds one it is happy with. Even then it will question itself testing it's idea against all know situations. Since retiring I am happy to report that the difficulty of the problems I need to solve have diminshed considerably. As a result the subjects can be more pleasurable as was tonight's problem.

I had a return of the giddy spells at bowls today and did not think to get a photo at lunch time or on my way home. Then the thought struck me, How would you portay giddiness in a photo? Into gear went the brain and soon suggested I enlist the help of my assitant as the subject of the shots.

Here my assistant is shown without any hint of giddiness so that you may compare it with the shots that follow. you may notice that he was somewhat reluctant to take part in the experimentation.


Here the tripod was shaken and the penguin was instructed to stand still which he is quite good at after returning from a long fishing trip.


In this shot the ball head of the tripod was loosened allowing movement of the camera. The penguin complained that the movement was too violent and it had made him giddy trying to look into the lens.


A similar but more controlled movement of the camera not only placated the penguin but produced a result much the same as I have been experiencing. At this point my assistant announced that it was time he got paid for his work and refused to take part in any further photographic sessions.

You just cannot get the staff these days!



I flicked through the photos, and thought it must be the drink. Mine, not yours. Have had a good laugh! Hope that you're fully recovered soon. Mind you, I've been giddy most of my life.

I wouldn't mind betting that you were given 3 days of antibiotics for your UTI rather than 5. Hence the recurrence.
