I’m really having a good time with Chained Echoes. This was the first pretty hard boss and I had to think about how to handle it, revising my tactics and leveling up my party a bit more before I successfully finished it off. This is a great Steam Deck game for kicking back on the sofa.

This Iris is my first split and ortholinear keyboard, and I’m slowly, gradually getting used to typing on it. Getting back to work tomorrow will be interesting!

A top down view of a split ergonomic keyboard, the Keeb.io Iris. It has backlit keys on a white plastic top plate and dark blue keys with cyan legends. Beside the keyboard is a mug of coffee with a swirl of frothed milk on top, and an Apple Magic Trackpad sits next to the coffee.

A set of bright red windowpanes frame a reflection in the glass of a photographer with a silver camera to hit face. He is wearing a yellow knit hat and yellow leather gloves. Behind the glass several chairs and a long bar counter are visible in warm indoor light.

I did get out for a quick photo walk downtown yesterday before getting rained out. I liked this selfie I shot in the window of a brewpub and I’m really enjoying using my old 35mm Pentax lens on my X-T30 as I get more used to manual focus.

A hand holds a small box titled ‘Inspiracles: photography inspiration cards’ and has fanned three large playing card sized cards. The top card is titled ‘Neon Portrait’ and suggests taking futuristic styled photos with neon lights.

My wife got me this fun and thoughtful photography gift: a deck of photo inspiration cards with prompts for things to look for or styles of photos to make. They’re really neat! I’m going out on a pre-winter-storm walk this morning to try out a few.
