Short stories: Scrambled eggs, mushrooms and no computer

Monday’s breakfast before work: scrambled eggs on toast with a side of mushrooms from Greenhouse Perth.

I’ve been having major computer problems for a couple of weeks. Without going into details, it’s back at the shop being fixed. While it’s being repaired I am unable to edit my latest photographs. It’s frustrating, as you can imagine – my workflow is all out of whack, I feel like I’m falling behind and, as always, there’s a lot to work on as I keep taking pictures.

Once in a while though, I manage to get it reasonably ‘right’. The two pictures in this post are the JPGs straight out of the camera; no post-processing other than resizing from the original 3 MB files for web using Windows Live Photo Gallery on Jac’s laptop – out of sheer desperation.


I’m pleased with these pictures, but most of my photographs will need editing and I can’t use Lightroom or Photoshop until my computer’s fixed. I’m without my tools and it doesn’t feel good. Fingers crossed I’ll have the computer back by the end of the week.

The verdict on the eggs? This is the second time I’ve had them at Greenhouse and I’ve now concluded I prefer my scrambled eggs softer and definitely without chives. The toast was doorstop-chunky and would be much nicer buttered. The mushrooms, sprinkled with pepitas, were marvellous.

I’d been working for a few weeks on the words for The resort that Perth forgot and finally, sitting here at Greenhouse, made my final edits and published the post from my iPad (handy for working on words but not pictures) as I chased the last enoki mushroom around on the plate. Then off to another day at the office.
