April is upon us and the clocks have gone forward. It feels like spring – although it has struggled a little at times not to slip back to winter.
I’ve kept up with my task of taking a picture every day. As with February, not every picture has been uploaded on the right day in February, but they’ve all been taken on the right day (and then the date of the post adjusted).
This is my summary of March, 2009 – and I’ve now done a quarter of this daft project.
You can browse the individual pictures starting on the 1st Mar or the 31st Mar.
Now for April…
This was an online application which ‘augments’ reality, which I heard about from this tweet.
Essentially, you print out a black and white graphic which the computer can recognise, this is used to project a 3d image image.
In this case the image was of a solar panel array. This is my picture of the day for the 31st March, 2009.
You can see the whole of march in this summary collage, or go straight to April.
We cheated for tea tonight…. takeaway from the local Indian restaurant.

My pic a day for the 29th March, 2009 is this bicycle-shaped pasta called Pasta di Bici. I got it thrown into the deal when I bought a Foska jacket (Foska make this as a promotional item – it’s cute, but I wouldn’t pay the asking price for it).
Today I did some motorbike training. Very difficult – I’ve got the roadsense, but the mechanics of controlling a bike is tricky – and I had to use a lot of thought to do some of the basic tasks which I just do when in a car or on a bicycle.
Each limb has its own job (gears-left foot, clutch-left hand, back brake-right foot, throttle and front brake-right hand). All four limbs need coordination. I found my bicycle knowledge got in the way, especially when it came to the clutch as I’d want to use it as the rear brake!
I came home very tired indeed – it was a long day of concentration!
This is a shot of my footwear for the day, and my picture of the day for the 28th March, 2009.
