Coosa Wi-Fi Smart UK Plug

Recently I had an issue with the home electrics tripping, which resulted in all the appliances cutting out. When power was restored, I realised that my D-Link Smart Plugs were not automatically reconnecting to the Router. And it took a fair bit of time to get 2 of them to work, and the remaining 2 I simply could not reconnect. Hence I had to look for an alternative. It needed to be priced right, easy to setup, controllable through Alexa and have a better App interface for controlling the plug. Continue reading Coosa Wi-Fi Smart UK Plug

New York and Washington – Infrared

Here I have compiled the infrared images from my recent trip to America which particularly stand out to me; I have not included those of the Statue of Liberty & Liberty Island as they have already been posted. These were taken with my Olympus E-PL5 using the 14-42mm kit lens and a 650nm infrared filter. Images were processed with Capture One Pro 10 which I have upgraded to recently.

Holiday trip to America

It has been a week since my return from USA but I had been working every single day since my return. Hence there has been no time to process the photos from our 12 day trip to America, much less post on my website. But now that I have my first day of rest since coming back to England, I thought I would share some photos taken from the trip as well as some things I learnt from this trip.

Kinden Travel Adapter with Built In 6000mAh Power Bank

Recently I was browsing the Amazon website looking for travel adapters which will come in handy when we do go away for our Summer holiday. I noted that there was the Kinden travel adapter with 2 USB charging ports and a built-in 6000 mAh power bank. This retails normally for £24.00 but I managed to buy this for £19.20 from their Lightning deals. Continue reading Kinden Travel Adapter with Built In 6000mAh Power Bank

Neewer 360 Rotation Panorama Head with remote

One of the things I would like to do is shoot panoramas of places I visit either with my iPhone or 4K video with the GoPro Hero 5 Black. So the brief for this purchase was – it had to be compact and light, have motorised control for panning the device and be relatively inexpensive. In the end I bought the Neewer version as it was available for £25.49 (RRP £29.99) with Amazon lightning deal. Continue reading Neewer 360 Rotation Panorama Head with remote

Oriental Chives – for insect bites

Recently I was bitten by an insect (don’t know which though) at the back of my left foot. It became itchy and after walking around all day at work in my work shoes, it became very inflamed and painful to walk on. That was when I noticed that it had become infected i.e. cellulitis and was becoming a little bruised as well on the overlying skin. Hence I had to attend the out-of-hours GP service, which actually went very smoothly and I was given a time slot to see the GP. Continue reading Oriental Chives – for insect bites
