My Actifit Report Card: November 24 2019 A rainy day meant getting my steps in at the Mall

A rainy day meant getting my steps in at the Mall

Today it was raining most of the day and I am not one who likes using umbrellas especially not to try and get in a lot of steps and no way would my wife want to walk outside in the rain, today's steps were in the supermarket, where I only needed one thing but walked up and down every aisle some of them a few times to get in 3K before my wife woke up, and then we both went for a walk around the mall, nothing terribly exciting especially photo-wise so just one photo with my phone of the rain on the car window, and will add a couple of photos taken on nicer day to start with.

Now it sounds like I didn't do a lot today and maybe I didn't but we did have our weekly call with the family which ended up being a long chat for a couple of hours talking about this that and everything, including but not limited to Thanksgiving, Black Friday shopping, Fire TV, Apple TV, Christmas, and so many other things I lost count of LOL, and with doing things around the house and taking longer to get the steps in at the mall due to window shopping (we didn't buy anything but spent ages there). I am way behind on here but will catch up this evening.

Since I mentioned Black Friday shopping

Do you go out shopping on Black Friday?

its become a yearly habit for me to go out with my wife's son and his wife each Black Friday heading out in the early hours of the morning, often to pick up things for the grandkids for Christmas, I generally don't pick up much, or anything for myself, but we have fun joking around and stop for an early cooked breakfast somewhere before finishing off any shopping and heading home, I know we could get the same deals online but its a fun thing we do and I will most likely do it again this year.

And since I talked about rain let me make the shots I share water-related, and some shots from the Dock behind Fowler field here in Milford CT Starting with this shot looking along one of the docks or slips not really sure what the correct term for these are

WellI say I turned around, but this shot was taken on a different day but from the same spot, the ramps coming out into the water from the right are a slipway where people can unload and load there boats onto trailers

And this last shot is taken from the same area looking across the river at a couple of yachts moored by the marina, most of the yachts and boats are now out of the water and covered up for the coming Winter

As my Walk in the mall with my Wife was the same thing as other days and nothing much to take photos of I share a boring photo I took in the car today before dashing into the supermarket and not really worth scrolling down to see Just a funky edit of a shot looking out the window at the mirror

Hey @tattoodjay, here is a little bit of BEER from @pixresteemer for you. Enjoy it!

To be honest with you, a slip is like a parking space where a boat pulls in between two sides and so, a dock is one big space.

So, I would probably call it a dock.

Nice shots and yes!! Black Friday is always fun. :)


Ok thanks thats what I thought but once when I called it a dock someone told me it was a slip so I got confused

Cheers and !BEER

Hey Jay,
These shots are great! I particularly like the first one with the red, blues and greens complementing each other; very visually appealing. Really good work! Do you do all your edits in LR?
I stay clear of unnecessary consumption where possible so Black Friday is a bit like a nightmare to me lol.

Thanks, I do a lot of HDR images so three shots in different exposures which I merge together either in Photomatix or Lightroom, I do some editing in Lightroom and some in Photoshop

As for Black Friday I enjoy the time out and laughs with family even if I don't buy much of anything

ah I see. I've not dabbled with HDR yet, I'm relatively new to photography. I bought an Olympus OMD EM10 and a couple of lenses a few months ago and am still getting to grips with it and using LR too. Really enjoying it though!

I notice that a lot of your posts are from actifit. Do you write the entire post in the actifit app?!

I hated HDR when it first came out so much was overdone with it, but now I like it for some of what I do, but now I am starting to use it less as the cameras catch quite a good range, just have fun doing what you're doing ;)

My wife and I used to go out the day after Christmas, but it is pretty rare if we got out the day after Thanksgiving. There are just too many crazy people out there. I have noticed over the years that some of the deals really aren't that great anyway. At least not around us anyway.

I do agree and you can get most of the deals online these days apart from the door buster ones and no way am I queueing up overnight for anything LOL, but we have fun joking around being silly so thats what its more about for me, the only thing i have on my list is a new Firestick but not to worried if I get it or not

Docks or slips, I wouldn't know the right term anyway - the wet wood looks so colorful, as you say.

I also do like that wet-window-mirror shot - it looks good in monochrome and somehow surreal to me.

But most I like that huge cloud on the photos - it comes from the right side far back and makes a curve to leave the photo on the left side just above you ... I !DERANGED like it ;)


Are you sure it was Surreal and not !DERANGED
I did love the clouds that day


Somehow !DERANGED surreal or so - when I looked at it first I thought I see double, but I didn't have any !BEER in the past few years ;) lol

I think its been about 4 Years since I had a beer, longest break I have had from !BEER since about 17 LOL and will only get longer and longer ;) or :(


About 1 year longer than me, and yes, in the age 17 I have also had my first !BEER in the !DERANGED army 😉

At around 17 I had the odd beer, when I joined the army at 18 then I started drinking more lOl

Yeah, this !DERANGED army - all they taught me was to drink !BEER ;) lol
