Keeping the crazy at bay

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been working from home. Well on and off. But this whole week, I have been exclusively working from home.

Making the most of the benefits of working from home. Getting an hour extra time in bed in the mornings. Saved a load of money on travel and food. Not having to go out into the cold, COLD weather in the mornings and evenings.

But there are some drawbacks. Mostly because I live on my own. So. I don’t exactly see anyone during the day. Can go a little stir crazy. My tea and coffee intake has increased. And what with it being so cold, I’m layering up in an effort for not having the heating on during the day. That stuff costs money!

To keep from going totally mental, I’ve been picking up my camera. Picking up my camera and just taking photos around the home. Nothing special. But it gives my brain a break from the joys email marketing and stops me from going to brew up another cup of coffee.

    The conversions to black and white are great, really focusing on the lights, darks, and values in between. The one of the dust (?) is really interesting. And the one of the horizontal blinds is very striking.

      Thanks Lisa :)

      Winter to me is all about the extremes of light and dark. Especially while working at home. It goes from being blinded in the morning with sunlight to it being so utterly dark far too quickly!

      Dust.. so much dust in my house lol!

    Excellent photos. You really have a knack for this kind of thing. I’d like to see you post more of this stuff.

    I’m quite taken with the horizontal blinds shot as well, and the black & white tone works very well.

    Good tonic to keep the crazy at bay. It’s a routine I know well – especially the increase in hot beverage intake :)

      Thank you Jina :)

      I’ve been told hot water with some miso paste in it makes a wonderful hot drink alternative to tea and coffee. Going to give that one a shot one of these days.
