Welcome to A Zillion Ideas


Welcome to Wednesbury #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so once again I’ll share my thoughts with you, such as they are. I’m planning another outing to take photos because I think it’ll be a nice day. On Friday the 6th of July, which is just over 2 weeks time, I’m having an evening out at Mecca Bingo in Wednesbury for their Legends of Darts evening. It’s not that often I go out in the evening so that’ll make a nice change. We will welcome to Wednesbury, four champion dart players.

The Bloomsbury Group – a phenomenon

The Bloomsbury Group was a group of associated English writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists, the best-known members of which included Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E. M. Forster and Lytton Strachey. This loose collective of friends and relatives were closely associated with Cambridge University for the men and King’s College London for the women, and they lived, worked or studied together near Bloomsbury, London, during the first half of the 20th century.

Electrical science – fascinating

I’ve always been fascinated by electrical science and electric vehicles. I saw a YouTube video of a guy making his own electricity the other day from water power. He did have a stream running through his property, though, which helps! He made his generator from a washing machine motor which he rewired to produce enough voltage to charge car batteries. Another option would be to use an alternator from a car which could produce up to 100 amperes. It would be possible to produce a kilowatt of power.

Creating art from design #photography #art

I went back to photograph a humble post box, yesterday. Despite the fact we take post boxes for granted they are an iconic design and I hope my photograph can be considered art from design.

Zeitgeist – the spirit of our time #ramble

I know a few people who have lost loved ones recently and it is a painful experience. How are we supposed to get over such things and stop the pain of loss? I think there is a natural process that helps us heal and we shouldn’t create shrines to the one we lost. We should have the wake and then allow the wound to heal. Don’t keep picking at a wound, it will never heal. Of course, the scars of losing a loved one fade but they never disappear.

Putting value on what you have. #life #art

I went to a hospital appointment yesterday and came home disappointed that I wasn’t offered a promising treatment for my health problems. It does mean I will have to change my plans but it isn’t the end of the world. I know people with much worse problems and disability. I’m keen to get more involved in art and next year’s art festival but maybe I’ll just have to accept I can’t do so much. I’ve already slowed down and adjusted somewhat.

Making a little extra money #photography

I’ve been considering ways of making extra money from my photography. I could run a workshop and teach others the craft but there are various other ways of making money such as selling pictures. You can sell pictures directly or sell to photo libraries. I get asked for permission to use my pictures occasionally and I think in future I might ask for a contribution towards my expenses.

Value your eyesight. #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so once again I let you into the labyrinth of neurons and share my thoughts with you. My glasses are still in the opticians and so I am looking at a blurred computer screen and hoping for the best. I still have distance glasses so I’m able to find my way around and drive but not being able to read is really annoying. You really do need to value your eyesight.

The need for recognition and respect #life

We often think that money will solve all our problems and we concentrate our time on solving problems rather than taking action to improve our lives. We need recognition for what we do and respect from our peers. We need to accept that these things are important to us before we can take action to improve things.

More about depth of field #photography

I have written a lot about depth of field but it is difficult to explain in writing. Basically, the field is where the image is in sharp focus. That is the distance from the camera where the subject is and the sharpness falls off as we view things farther away from the camera or nearer to the camera. A wide aperture will make our subject sharper but the sharpness falls off quickly, whereas a narrow aperture will make most of our image in focus.

How to have great ideas? #ramble

How do you have train your mind to have great ideas? How do you make life interesting? Tony Highfield, our local historian was telling me about all the awards he has won and how he gets involved in the community. He compiles books, researches history and gets involved and he said that is why we are different. We take a risk and risk the ridicule if things go wrong. We don’t sit at home thinking about it and talking about it, we get out there and take a risk. This inspires our thinking and we even take risks in the way that we think. We imagine and then we try to make it happen. There are people who can’t do anything without lots of support and when it all goes wrong they blame someone else. You have to be brave enough to try new ideas but you also have to be brave enough to accept the blame if it all goes wrong.

Life and money #finance #life

I have decided not to do any stock market dealing for a while and think more about making life better without spending lots of money. I still keep accounts though and a check on how much money is coming in and how much is going out! I’m pleased to say more comes in than goes out so I can consider other things in life. Life and money, which is more important? Of course, having a good life is more important.
