Just do it!



a little dark, but there's a space underneath the top, and two drawers!

a little dark, but there’s a space underneath the top, and two drawers!

I have a coffee table in front of the couch. It has a glass top that rests on a wooden rim. Somehow, magically, dust creeps in there, underneath the glass … and in between the glass and the wood. Anyway, I sit there every night, get irked by seeing the stuff there, thinking I should really clean that out. For months, I’ve been thinking that.

Today I finally pulled myself together and did it! It took one minute, at the most. Wanted to take a photo with lots of white and some blue in it, and needed the glass surface. That was the trigger, I guess … to finally lift the glass up and wipe off the dust.


From above, the sheets of paper are under the glass.

On a side note; Why, oh why do I get so much noise already at ISO400?!

    That’s what I thought.

    OK, let’s make a start with some questions šŸ™‚

    What noise are you seeing at ISO 400 ?

    Do you shoot RAW or JPEG?

    What do you use to post-process your images?

      In the darker parts … .RAW. I don’t do much of post-processing nowadays, since I removed Aperture. I don’t know what I’ll do…

      In the comments or the post itself? šŸ˜€ Night after night, I’d be sitting there, like a damned fool, looking at that dirt underneath the glass, not doing a thing about it . All the other stuff was camera talk LOL

      I would never have bought a glass table, had it not been for that it had exactly the other ‘features I was looking for … and no other table had! LOL I’d have to take a picture of it to explain some time…

      I’ve added two pictures of it. One criteria, when I bought it, was that it had to have a space under the top, and preferably, a drawer … this has TWO drawers! šŸ™‚
