With apologies to William Shakespeare:
Is this a keyboard which I see before me, the… er… the keys toward my hand? Come, let me type upon thee. I have thee not (actually, I do have thee), and yet I see thee still. Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible to feeling as to sight? (as I said, you are) or art thou but a keyboard of the mind, a false creation?
No. No, it’s definitely here. Though the radio signal from thee seems rather faint. Maybe that’s the source of the problems here. Perchance new batteries are required.
It’s nice to be typing a blog post entry on a computer for the first time in a few weeks. Sure, you can write blog posts from your phone, but the keyboard is small, the screen is minimal, the interface isn’t great and autocarrot plays havoc with your spelling. None of those issues here.
But no, very definitely back in Cape Town and with several or more tasks to catch up on before heading back to the lab tomorrow (where I am sure there will be even more tasks), at least I am now sitting in front of a real computer and typing on real keys, rather than pixels.
The reason I’m sitting here is because I’ve been uploading a few photos onto Flickr. And I mean a few. I mentioned somewhere on here that I had done very little photography over the summer break, but even I was surprised at just how little. The weather wasn’t conducive to any night time shooting – either because of clouds or the high winds – and when it was, there was a lot of light pollution around because of the tourists flocking into Cape Agulhas. And during the day, I’m happy to report that we spent a good deal of time chilling out, dozing and reading, rather than braving the heat of the day and getting some photos taken.
I see no problem with this approach to holidays.
Anyway, those images that were taken (all few of them) can be found here.
