It’s funny – four days into 2019 and my computer died.
My trusty pavilion 15 from Hewlett Packard decided to pop off its mortal coil and join the choir invisible. Switching it on – it gave its warnings – beeps beeps and more beeps. It was – in effect – a dead parrot
(Cue Cleese, – It is no more – it has ceased to be – gone to the great tech cloud – Yada Yada)
It’s death was confirmed by the tech expert at my local Currys store, where, after a brief period of mourning and a check of the finances, I purchased its younger brother (slightly better spec, different colour, No need to update to Windows 10 ….)
I will however miss the old one (we had some good times….(SOB!))
ever get one of those days when nothing goes right ?
Thursday evening – and i’m going through the snaps i took with the D3100 the other day.
Now take a look, this is how my dear computer judges what my camera thinks my outside lawn looks like. It could be it was fooled by the Manchester weather, and in its defence it was throwing down stairrods when i took the pic. But then again, i have been confined to the house the last few days – thanks to a bug i picked up (don’t worry – the cold remedy has worked)
Now before it throws another strop – here’s evidence for the prosecution – it worked perfectly well when i was doing my black and white shots in the kitchen.
and it liked the pics of the spoons
It even liked the black and white shot i took of the Coffee, Sugar and Tea Jugs
So i’m starting to think – my poor old camera has caught a cold (sic)
Or that the gremlin that lives on my computer (hereby known as the update wizard) has attacked my computers ability to work out colour!
