I’ve just realised the common thread in the last couple of posts. It’s cold. In fact, in rl it’s as cold as I can ever remember it. The picture below was taken a couple of days ago when the most recent dose of snow fell. It’s not quite so pretty now. And in case you’re wondering… yes, that’s a part of my rl garden under that snow. Buried in there, somewhere by the wall, is a barbecue.
Oh… for the technically curious, the only thing I’ve done to this photo is straighten it a little and rescale it. Otherwise it’s just as it came from the camera, with the white balance set to Auto – which is why, I guess, the foreground (lit by fluorescent lighting in the kitchen) seems natural, and the background (lit by the fading ambient light) is blue.
For the record, it’s apparently -6 C, and probably getting colder.
