The starfish split himself in two right down the middle. Looked like he finished healing up his tore off legs, then just split almost exactly symmetrically. Scary precise. Almost like a razor blade sliced him in half. One half hangs out up front now, while the other half still hangs out on the back wall.
The work on the back room continues. Probably get rid of the couch tonight or tomorrow. From there the desk gets built. And then the final arrangements begin.
Had to take a break from working on it last night. Early week at work and I'm wore down. Been getting up at 3:30 AM to get all my exercise in before going in and it's pretty well doing me in. Meanwhile, Mrs. NFB is all cheery and bright that early and pops off things like, "I think the early mornings are agreeing with me." I married a morning person? WTF?
Oh, anybody want a horribly outdated 70s era couch with flower patterns in oranges, browns and greens? It's still comfy to sleep on, and sits fine, we just don't have anywhere for it anymore.
I should get a picture of it before it joins the great junk pile.
Went to the park the other day and tried to get some shots. Frustrated with the way the light was behaving right then. And it was crowded. Only shots I got that were worth a crap were of the old mill from way across the way. They keep the wooden bits in shape over the old wheelhouse just to prevent newbs and stooges from doing something stupid to it. It looks fairly impressive from certain vantage points.
On the upper right there you can see the old pipe holding brick structures. The pipe has long since rusted away to nothing, but the holders are still there. The pipe used to run from the top of the falls down into the side of the wheelhouse. It had a gate on it that could control the speed that the wheel rolled to grind the grain. It was a pretty impressive setup back in its day. There's old timey black and whites in one of the other buildings down the river a ways that shows the full setup.
Have to get back there after I get my polarizer and get some shots of the water. The falls can be really interesting if you don't pick up just a weird series of light reflections.
