PAD – 10/366 – Jan 10th

10/366 – January 10th 2020

I haven’t really been up to getting out and getting my shots for this challenge the past few days. Life and all that has gotten in the way and my mental health hasn’t been great.

It is a full moon tonight and I tested the waters last night with attempting to shoot the moon and failed miserably. Today I did a little bit of research on the Huawei forums and took a few tips and set up the phone beforehand using the AI function and 50x zoom. This was the outcome. I am so pleased with how this came out. It isn’t perfect and I think with some refinement using the pro manual features, I can do better.

PAD – 3/366 – Jan 3rd

I have found that when I go out I can find myself overwhelmed by noise and crowds. It used to mean that days out and shopping trips would often be cut short due to severe anxiety. I would retreat back to the comfort and safety of my home.

When I go out now, I have my phone and at least one pair of headphones about my person. If the “terrors” start to get a hold I plug in and tune out of the world. My family all know about this and it is not unusual for them to have a backup pair of headphones too.

It’s no the most social way of dealing with life, but it works. Until things start improving, these two items will remain a constant companion.
