Anyway, after being slightly unsatisfied with the results of the past two weeks I went back to familiar ground. Which meant a rather solid lighting setup and (almost) no experiments. The outfit is one of the great advantages of my father-in-law being head of the local drama group. Naturally, being the good son-in-law I am, I'm part of this group, too. You should see one of our humoristic stage plays we do each year around Easter. Great fun. Also a good explanation for having a supply of artificial blood...
See that facial expression? This is exactly the face I made yesterday evening when my PC was suddenly unable to find my hard disk array (2 mirrored 1 TB hard disks). Needless to say it's the one where all my pictures are stored on. After a lot of sweating and a lot more swearing I figured out how to rebuild it. So instead of uploading this week’s picture I spent the evening tinkering with my PC. This morning the process was complete and luckily everything seems to be just fine. And I eagerly hope it stays that way...
Oh and no zucchini was hurt during the making of this picture!
