Practice makes … … well in my case a racket, hence the headphones! It’s cold and wet outside, made more unpleasant by the strong wind driving sleet horizontally past my front door. It’s an ideal evening for piano practice – with headphones on so I don’t set off the cat next door again! It’s also an opportunity to try my new acquisition – a second-hand Panasonic FX33 that replaces my FX30 that had a total power failure earlier this year. The built-in flash glares too much this close. I did try the reflector/diffuser gizmo that came with AP a couple of years ago but it required too much juggling, so I used the old pocket handkerchief method.
