Camera calibration

Camera calibration

What do you do with a snowy afternoon while you’re waiting for your wife to get home with the car with snow tires so you can go and walk the dog? Use the nice, long hallway in the empty nursery School to run some lens calibrations 🙂

…2-5″ of snow tomorrow, so it’s time to put the little cars winter boots on 😉

All done (including a test drive and topping up the air) in under an hour- a new record 🙂

Winter rearranging

Winter rearranging

Moving the furniture around to it’s “winter” setting to make room for the tree and let us use and enjoy the fireplace, a process that this year necessitated the purchase of a new vacuum cleaner as the old one died in the middle of it.

Boy, the old one sucked (or didn’t to be exact)! I just went over the same rug I had vacuumed before the old one died, and the amount of dust and dog hair the new one pulled out of it is not too be believed! So then of course then I had to go and re-vacuum the whole apartment, and I could knit a new dog with all the hair it collected 🙂

After dark…

As the tree is now lit I thought I would do my first after-sunset flight with the drone.

It came out pretty good, but I need to experiment with where exactly the drone is when I do these- there’s a little to much empty parking lot and traffic circle in this one, though I think I nailed the altitude as I like the trees and the steeple on the horizon.

This is fun 🙂
