I went for a walk ...

 
 By: fernando : September 16th, 2020-00:16
this morning, in the hope of losing weight. smile The weather cleared up after yesterday's rain storm and the flowers were in bloom.





Dragon boat training?




After about an hour, I had the urge to quench my thirst and I looked for a watering hole. 
The phone camera had a mind of its own and decided to back focus when someone walked by as I was taking a photo of my thirst quencher. (ai camera installed in phone) smile


One thing led to another and there was food..


and more food. I think I added more calories than what was expended today. smile Wearing the Omega PO for another day.


Thanks for looking and hope everybody's keeping their spirits up in these difficult times.

I miss HK! That PO looks good on you. Wondering what you timed with that bezel at 5:00 :-) (nt)

Good plan!

And I will meet my new coach tmr to prepare me for big ocean swims. Weekly mileage at 15km, and it is very tiring. I am always sleepy. This goal is very effective in distracting me from thinking of watches.=( i now must save for the bookings to be made.

Good luck! Do it when you can. You won't regret it looking back.

I don't know about you but I can sometimes almost fall asleep whilst doing laps.smile

I hallucinate after 5km

That the water and sky become one. The breathing and strokes feel automatic. Slowly I’m disappearing from this community due to this obsession.

Go slowly first buddy, and then slowly increase the mileage. 

Maybe, I’d wear a Rolex to swim the channel...hehehe.

Pls. document your channel crossing, especially with the Rolex. :)

5k is unimaginable for me.

Yes I will do that in pictures

It’s a different lifestyle now, focused on defeating myself and being reborn in a new stronger mind.

Texture and colour...

Your camera understands all of your focusing needs ; )
The danger of refreshments is that one thing leads to another.

Time well spent... we benefit and enjoy your 'walk'...

lovely,
Casey

Is it the 39mm version?

It was a great ending for your walk.

Best.

Even if I have the first gen in 42mm

 
 By: renerod : September 16th, 2020-22:17
When I saw the 39.5 I thought it is like the perfect size for me.

Enjoy it very much as you already do!

Best.

You are right, as long as we enjoy ourselves, the weight can wait. smile

Are you sure it's the camera that has a mind of its own?

 
 By: TheMadDruid : September 17th, 2020-06:06
I think that would mean all your cameras are pretty independent; unruly even.

Getting past that however, I think those first two photos are terrific; and the first, not just focusing on the plants but removing everything else from the frame...

I still haven't figured out how to out-walk...

...my wine intake during the lockdown. I think the guys rowing are the ones doing it the right way : )

Wine & food intake is a problem for us all. :) [nt]
